Your last reference letter
Kayur V. Patel, MD, MRO, FACP, FACPE, FACHE, FACEP
During the course of our careers, we often write recommendation letters for peers or subordinates.? Recommenders are encouraged to take the space they need to help build the applicant’s case at the cost of ethics? A recommendation letter must provide its reader an unbiased insight into applicant's professional abilities, characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses.? However, when a letter of recommendation is written with complacency it plants the seed for a medical malpractice case waiting to happen.

Hitting the Target in Diagnosing and Treating Thyroid and Carbohydrate
Ryan E. Bentley DC, MS3, DAAMLP, CGP
In today’s health care system accurately evaluating thyroid dysfunction and carbohydrate metabolism dysfunction through blood testing, seems to be non-existent in general practice. Running as TSH and Glucose seems to be the gold standard leaving many people in the general population feeling lost as they are told they are normal, but yet they still feel lousy. This in-depth look at thyroid and Carbohydrate dysfunction will provide attendees with a new and different perspective on the evaluation and management of two common conditions seen in clinical practice.11:15-11:45 AM
Telemedicine Connect – How to contact the physician

Structure Function – Management of Chronic Hypertension
Robert Prather, DC, DABCI, BCAO, Lac
Medical management of hypertension is by no means a panacea, leaving significant numbers of patients untreated, undertreated, or mistreated. According to recent peer-reviewed research, shortcomings in the medical management of hypertension place patients at high risk of adverse effects, inefficacy, and unnecessary expense. By generally failing to address the underlying causes of high blood pressure and by failing to treat the constellation of comorbid conditions (i.e. insulin resistance, obesity, hyperuricemia, and nutritional deficiencies) medical management of hypertension that focuses with near exclusivity on the numeric reduction of elevated blood pressure cannot be viewed as optimal therapy.

Today’s Healthcare Landscape Kayur V. Patel, MD, MRO, FACP, FACPE, FACHE, FACEP
We all understand the gravity of the situation when it comes to the threat of litigation following a misdiagnosis or improper treatment in high-risk medical conditions. This threat presents a challenge, not just to physicians, but to all healthcare providers. In a continuously moving healthcare industry, with the pendulum swinging or the dynamics changing, we are in a constant flux of information that we can use, misuse, overuse or underuse; and by better understanding where our risks lie, we may be able to unfold some of these risks before they actually occur, delivering high-quality care. No time is better than today to use a multidisciplinary approach to risk management. We are constantly in search of better processes, identifying high-risk areas and take every precautionary step, moving forward rather than being blind-sided.
