Presented by the Departments of Family Medicine and Obstetrics & Gynecology at The University of Michigan Medical School, the 26th Annual Primary Health Care of Women Conference & Integrative Health in Primary Care is a three-day, clinically-oriented course designed to explore the most recent topics in the diagnosis and treatment of common medical conditions in women and in integrative medicine. These two popular courses have been combined for the first time ever. You may attend the full course or just one or two days. Early-bird discounts are in effect until November 21st.
You will find the agenda at http://www.UMFamilyMedCME.com. This course will help attendees meet the Michigan state-mandated CME requirements for pain and symptom management.
Women's health care sessions will be presented on Thursday, December 6th and integrative medicine sessions on Saturday, December 8th. Friday, December 7th will consist of a combination of both topics. Topics include dementia, hypertension, weight management, bipolar disease, breast cancer and pain management.
We have designed four interactive workshops for Friday afternoon. You will learn about culinary medicine, managing chronic tension headaches with massage therapy, mindfulness and Pilates for post-natal, low back and active aging issues.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Implement best practice methods to improve the diagnosis and treatment of common medical conditions in women including, but not limited to, dementia, bipolar disease, breast cancer, hypertension and chronic pain.
