Program Purpose / Objectives
This series of lectures is designed to educate and update the primary care physician on current hot topics relevant to infectious disease in their office practice. Upon completion, participants should be able to diagnose, treat and perhaps prevent many of the infections commonly seen. Topics include some of the newer antibiotics and antivirals used in the US in 2012, as well as specific pathogens commonly seen such as Influenza, HPV and infectious rashes as well as those seen less frequently such as TORCH infections and Lyme. The two case reports are taken from classic presentations of illnesses seen in an office practice with discussion of the literature and treatment. With more of our families traveling we will also discuss travel advice including both antibiotics and vaccines indicated for the different regions of the world. Lastly we will discuss MRSA, a pathogen hitting our communities and children in ever increasing numbers. This seminar will be relevant to family practitioners, pediatricians, infectious disease specialists, as well as other health professionals who manage pediatric patients.
