16207: Autonomic Disorders Workshop for Generalists (Wednesday, November 2, 2016)
Do some of your patients “drop out of life” with chronic nausea, abdominal pain or dizziness? Are they “heart-sink” patients (meaning that your heart sinks when their name appears on your schedule because nothing seems to work)? Over 30% of patients to a primary practice harbor a Functional Disorder like chronic idiopathic nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, postural tachycardia syndrome or chronic migraine. And yet all of us in medicine remain ill-equipped to diagnose or manage this population because most medical school and training programs do not address their issues.
This live patient-based workshop aims to fill this gap. You will hear from world-renowned experts on each topic, followed by your eliciting history from a live patient with the problems just covered. Only patient-based training (like resident and fellowship) change how practitioners think.
In addition, we would like to mention a new MCW Functional Disorders education program support practitioners with this challenging and ever-growing population. This program leverages resources unique to MCW. Drs. Tom & Gisela Chelimsky will partner with you and help you to partner with your own patients to efficiently provide them with the skills necessary to return to normal life. The funds available to MCW from the “Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment” will allow all CME charges to be waived at this time. Enrollment in this program will entitle you to open email access to the faculty for prompt clinical advice, and early appointments for your referrals to the Autonomic Disorders Clinic.
