CME Provider: American College of Preventive Medicine

Description of CME Course

A lifestyle medicine evidence review was conducted by the American College of Preventive Medicine in 2009. It compiled the scientific evidence that supports the need for increased competence in lifestyle medicine among healthcare providers and predicted an increased demand for training in delivering lifestyle interventions. It argued that greater provider competence might lead to improved patient outcomes.

Most practitioners are aware of the negative effects of excessive alcohol use and how it affects the overall health of their patients. Hesitation in fully addressing alcohol use results from alack of knowledge ofkey definitions concerning alcohol use and a lack of understanding ofeffective interventions that can be applied in primary care settings. Limited practice conducting patient screenings and interventions is also a problem. With increased knowledge and competence in performing assessments and interventions, more clinicians, including primary care providers, will be able to best address risky alcohol use with patients
