Even in the time of COVID-19, patient care still goes on. The use of telehealth has been challenging to some providers, generally and more specifically, having some of the conversations that are required in a virtual setting provides its own set of challenges. Now that vaccines will be available to a broader audience, the possibility of vaccine resistance becomes more real. The Primary Care Review provides up-to-date information on a variety of topics, geared towards a primary care audience.
The structure of the conference is such that attendees can tailor the week to
cover those areas of most importance in their practice. Because the audience is composed of so many
health care providers that are not in urban areas, speakers provide pearls and guidance aimed at those
without access to a host of specialists. For example, handing off the cancer patient to their primary care
provider post-treatment. This year’s program has 19 plenary sessions, covering topics such as women’s
health, cardiology, asthma, supplements, obesity and infectious disease. There are 50 breakout
sessions, allowing the flexibility mentioned above. Topics are selected based on the expertise of the
planning committee as well as suggestions from prior attendees, new guidelines and health-related
issues appearing in the press.
