Overview: A recently published study looked at the association between a perceived life purpose (using modified Ryff and Keyes Scales of Psychological Well-being) and mortality in individuals participating in the Health and Retirement Study (HRS). The results seem to indicate that a strong sense of purpose to one’s life is associated with decreased mortality. Join us as we discuss the implications of this study and how to apply it in practice to improve your patients’ health and well-being as well as your own.

Overview: After the debate on whether to screen for prostate cancer comes the debate on how to treat it. Options include “watchful waiting,” radiation, surgery, and androgen deprivation. This session will focus on how to help your patient diagnosed with prostate cancer decide on a treatment plan using a cohort-based decision tool.

Overview: This study looked at hospitalizations following legislation that legalized marijuana use in Colorado compared to two states that have not legalized marijuana, New York and Oklahoma. The goal was to determine what impact this law might have on common and chronic conditions. It found hospitalizations for some conditions increased while issues of social anxiety disorder decreased

Recently, the American College of Physicians (ACP) reviewed the data supporting seven different guideline recommendations and issued new guidance on breast cancer screening for average-risk women. Join our discussion of the recommendations to help develop a consistent approach to breast cancer screening in your practice.

Overview: Conflicting evidence-based guidelines and medication risks have complicated the care of individuals with low bone density. The Endocrine Society just released its most recent recommendations for pharmacologic management of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Their goal was to address the most challenging aspects of low bone density management with clear evidence-based guidance. Join us as we review their new recommendations, compare them with other guidelines, and discuss their impact on your practice.

Overview: Reading to young children is a well-established activity that can impact neuro-cognitive and emotional development in children. Since many parents use E-readers and other digital platforms to read to their kids, in this episode we will explore whether there is a difference or benefit to using a particular type of book. Join us as we discuss the recent findings on parent-toddler interactions when reading from a print book versus an E-reader.

Overview: When patients with T2DM have difficulty controlling their glucose with standard approaches, or are newly diagnosed but severely hyperglycemic, insulin is commonly used to help control their metabolism. Using long acting, once a day agents is a standard of care but in the last 15 years, the costs of insulin has skyrocketed. During this episode we will review a study examining the effects of using Neutral Protamine Hagedorn Insulin (NPH) rather than once a day insulin on A1c control and risk for hypoglycemia and discuss their findings, which suggest NPH can be used with equivalent glycemic control and with no additional risk.

Overview: Since their arrival, oral anti-fungal agents have been thought to induce liver disease. Often, these medications are avoided or used with caution and frequent laboratory testing. Join us in a discussion of a recent study that builds on previous work showing the risk with using these agents is extremely small.

Overview: According to the latest data, 1 in 7 US women experience perinatal depression, described as depression occurring during pregnancy and up to one year after childbirth. There is compelling evidence that perinatal depression can have short and long-term effects on both women and their children. The USPSTF has published new recommendations encouraging clinicians to screen pregnant and postpartum persons for depression and provide those who are at increased risk of perinatal depression with counseling interventions. (Grade B recommendation).

Overview: Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for upper respiratory infections, even when they are likely due to viral etiologies, or will resolve just as quickly without antibiotics. Many clinicians believe convincing patients they do not need to take an antibiotic is time consuming and frustrating for both parties. In fact, patients are often receptive to information on appropriate use, and the conversation can be done efficiently with practice.

Overview: The FDA has not approved any ENDS product as an effective or safe smoking cessation tool. Earlier evidence did not indicate that ENDS were effective or sustainable. Most of these studies were done on earlier prototypes of e-cigarettes. A recent study from the UK found that newer generation ENDs were more successful than approved NRT products for smoking cessation. Join us as we discuss this new evidence and how it impacts strategies to assist with smoking cessation.

Overview: The USPSTF recently issued a Draft Grade A recommendation that all at-risk patients be offered pre-exposure prophylaxis to prevent the transmission of HIV. This multi drug, single pill regimen can lower risk of HIV and potentially prevent lifelong burden of disease. While only a draft recommendation, the USPSTF expects, after stakeholder comment, to continue to support an A recommendation to offer for all patients who are increased risk.
