Overview / Abstract:

Infectious Diseases in Primary Care will be held online this year, using live streaming, electronic Q&A, and other remote learning technologies.

This acclaimed Harvard Medical School CME course provides a comprehensive ID update. Led by Harvard Medical School's leading ID faculty and clinicians, this program provides guidance to improve the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of infectious diseases. Participants learn the practice implications of important new innovations and ensure that their ability to address ID challenges is fully current.
Focus areas in the course curriculum include:
• COVID-19 updates
• Updated guidelines for adult immunization
• New diagnostics for respiratory tract infections
• Travel medicine and infectious diseases in immigrants
• Strategies for avoiding antibiotic overuse
• Lyme disease: controversies and solutions
• How to counsel reluctant patients about vaccine benefits
• Can’t-miss diagnoses: infectious disease emergencies
• Managing infection in pregnancy and pre-pregnancy
• Treatment of highly resistant infections
• Protecting our patients with weakened immune systems
• Evaluation and treatment of latent tuberculosis
• Infection control in the office setting
• Updates on emerging infections, including COVID-19
• New guidelines for management of urinary, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and soft tissue infections
Specially designed for the needs of busy clinicians, Harvard Medical School faculty provide outcomes-driven and evidence-based answers to questions that PHYSICIANS, NPs and PAs face every day, such as ...
• What immunizations are indicated for my patients traveling to developing countries?
• How can I interpret the results of different tests for latent tuberculosis?
• How should I manage recurrent C. difficile?
• How do I diagnose, treat, and counsel patients about Lyme disease?
• What are the recommendations for the new zoster vaccine?
• How do I manage infections in patients with substance use disorder?
• What can we expect with the upcoming flu season?
• What advice can I give my patients about emerging infections, such as COVID-19?
• How can I manage resistant and recurrent urinary tract infections?
• Who should be tested for HIV and viral hepatitis?
• What patients with gastroenteritis should receive antibiotics?
• What strategies are recommended for treating and preventing MRSA infection?
• What are the new tests our lab is using to diagnose HIV and other sexually transmitted infections?

• How do I manage patients with antibiotic allergies?


The 2020 program has been enhanced for distance learning. In addition to being live streamed, all sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for one month after the end of the course. This video archive will ensure that participants who live in different time zones or who have scheduling conflicts do not miss out on any sessions that are important to them. In addition, participants can review sessions that they watched during live streaming to reinforce key learning points.
