Concepts in Miltary Medicine

  1. 1. Saturday and Sunday January 18 and 19, 2014 Concepts in Military Medicine Location Naegele Auditorium Park Nicollet Clinic–St. Louis Park 3800 Park Nicollet Boulevard St. Louis Park, Minn. Audience This program is designed for primary care physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Nurses and other members of the care team may also find it beneficial. Program overview Given the ever-changing and evolving field of military medicine, clinicians need a vast range of skills and competencies to provide the best possible patient care for military personnel here and abroad. While basic care often is similar for civilian and military populations, combat-related disease and injury have a less familiar course. Health professionals must maintain an expansive knowledge base to keep everyday practice for military personnel current and evidence-based. They need strategies to diagnose and manage the enormous variety of problems patients present—no matter how common or rare, simple or complex, acute or chronic. Many physicians and healthcare professionals often are not familiar with the environments soldiers experience in combat zones, the health challenges military personnel face, and the resources to assist them. This conference is for civilian and military medical professionals, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, mental health professionals and health planners. The conference will help medical professionals be better prepared to manage the specific healthcare needs our military personnel face. This conference will provide a comprehensive review of the latest guidelines, techniques and recommendations used to evaluate, manage and treat medical conditions commonly seen among military personnel and address the operational impact these conditions have on military members. Faculty will discuss and describe practical strategies and procedures to provide primary care clinicians with the knowledge and skills to confidently treat our military personnel. Educational objectives Following this course, participants will be able to: • • • Diagnose and treat common health conditions military personal face, such as asthma and allergic disease, orthopedic injuries, dental problems, trauma and mental health disorders Apply strategies to streamline case management of soldiers back home in their community Discuss and describe roles and responsibilities, medical readiness procedures, deployment issues, trauma tactic changes and medico-legal intersections in the military
