The GAFP’s 2014 Annual Scientific Assembly will be held Friday November 14th – Sunday, November 16th in Atlanta, Georgia. Each year we offer a myriad of CME lectures, workshops, re-certification exams, and exhibits to attendees along with the opportunity to network with colleagues.
New this year, the Annual Meeting will be hosted at the trendy Westin Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta, GA. In addition, registration will cut off at 450 attendees, so don’t miss out! With up to 21 CME credit available, this will be your opportunity to fulfill your CME requirements for the year and take advantage of ABFM recertification courses in a group setting.
You can look forward to hearing evidence-based lectures on Transitioning Youth to Adult Care, Managing Wound Care, Osteoporosis, Adult Immunizations, Opioid-Induced Constipation in Individuals with Chronic, Non-Cancer Pain, and Hookahs & E-Cigarettes. In addition, we will offer a Pain Management and Palliative Care track as well as DOT Training and the ever popular Business Solutions Workshop. Due to a strong response last year about the group learning session which included student participation, the Education and Research Committee is working to duplicate its success in 2014. The workshop will highlight case studies on clinical topics and encourages audience participation.
The GAFP will again host our PCMH University practices at the Annual Meeting for their final learning session before submitting their applications to become NCQA Recognized Patient Center Medical Homes. Good luck to the group!
Another highlight of the Annual meeting is the Coding Workshop, led by Steve Adams. This workshop draws physicians, nurses, and practice managers from around the state to receive not yet released coding information that is very useful in their every day practices.
Registration for the Annual Scientific Assembly will be open online through October 31st. Visit the Annual Meeting Event Page to register online. Please make plans to join us in November for the 2014 Annual Scientific Assembly at the Westin Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta.
