7:30 am – 8:00 am – Registration check-in and continental breakfast
8:00 am – 9:15 am – Pharmacology Update: Transitions of Care and Medication Safety (1.25 contact hours - .33 pharmacology)
One-fifth of Medicare beneficiaries are re-hospitalized within 30 days and more than one-third within 90 days. Very often, the cause of this re-hospitalization is due to confusion of the new medication regimen, not having the ability to pick up the medication, or lack of knowledge of the medication including side effect profile. Ensuring accuracy and continuity of pharmacotherapy during the transition of an individual's care from one healthcare environment to another (transitions of care) is an ongoing challenge for the inter-professional health care team. Elements of this presentation will include identifying existing standards, strategies, and models used to promote medication safety across health care settings and a discussion of clinical examples that illustrate how medication safety principles are implemented in a case presentation format.
9:30 am – 10:45 am – From Hospital to Home: Establishing a Transitions of Care Program with your Practice (1.25 contact hours)
Nationally, 1 in 5 Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. The cost for these readmissions is estimated at $26 billion annually, with $17 billion in preventable expenses. In January 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services introduced transitional care management services with the goal of reducing readmissions and improving care coordination. Creating a Transition of Care (TOC) program within your organization promotes continuity of care, increases patient satisfaction, and provides increased revenue to the practice. This presentation will include discussing the specific elements needed to be captured to meet the criteria for transitional care management services and a discussion of how to implement these elements into your practice.
11:00 am – 12:15 pm - Hepatitis A, B & C: A Review of Vaccinations and Screening Recommendations (1.25 contact hours - .33 pharmacology)
In 2000, there were approximately 25,000 cases of acute viral hepatitis reported nationwide, including 14,000 cases of Hepatitis A and 8,000 cases of Hepatitis B. In addition, 1.25 million persons are chronically infected with HBV, and 2.7 million are chronically infected with HCV. With the increase in provider education and public awareness, the latest statistics show that the number of new acute viral hepatitis cases have decreased by 33%. However, there has been a steady increase in Hepatitis A and C infections, while Hepatitis B remains flat at just over 20,000 new cases each year. To help provide further education and help decrease viral hepatis rates, this presentation will examine the latest statistics for New York State, discuss vaccination and screening recommendations for general and at-risk populations.
12:15 pm – 1:00 pm – A box lunch will be provided
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm - Abdominal Pain in the Adult Patient: What the NP Needs to Know! (3 contact hours)
The cause of abdominal pain can be from a simple medical condition to an acute emergency requiring surgery. This focus of this lecture will be on the pertinent knowledge needed to successfully evaluate the potential causes of abdominal pain in adults in order to make the correct decisions for the management of acute abdominal emergencies. A review in a step-wise fashion of each element needed to successfully determine the cause of abdominal pain will be discussed. This includes the pathophysiology of pain, required history taking, physical examination (advanced techniques), potential “red flags” and the most common causes of abdominal pain leading to a potential acute abdomen. This presentation will provide the NP the tools needed to evaluate and determine if your patient has an acute abdomen.
4:15 pm – Conference wrap-up

A continental breakfast, boxed lunch and refreshments in the morning and afternoon will be provided.
