Attend the Georgia Academy of Family Physician’s Annual Scientific Assembly. With an earlier date, this year’s four-day conference will be held at The Westin Buckhead October 25th-28th and will offer up to 42 AAFP Prescribed credits and up to 24 AMA PRA Category 1 credits for attendees. This educational activity was developed for family physicians, and the information is appropriate for other primary care clinicians, and office staff interested in improving patient care. Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to 1) identify family medicine practices that are relevant to the well-being of their patient population; 2) recognize and describe current diseases, and offer proper diagnosis, management and treatment options to patients and their families; and 3) apply evidence-based treatments to effectively manage patient care.
This year’s meeting will cover current topics and workshops that highlight conditions and diseases that affect our communities. We will have a lecture track devoted to medical home readiness, a domestic partner abuse track, and a workshop focused on behavioral health. Additionally, we will offer small group learning sessions focused on physician wellness.
We will also provide four Knowledge Self-Assessment Modules (KSAs), formerly known as SAMs, on Heart Failure, Well Child Care, Health Behaviors and Medical Genomics. In addition to lecture tracks and workshops, there is education on diabetes, population health, cancer screenings, opioid abuse and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. There is something for everyone who attends the meeting.
Conference activities also include the All GAFP Member Party, which is open to everyone whether you are attending the Scientific Assembly or not, celebrating the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance’s (GHFA) “Your Giving is Great Medicine” Capital Campaign Kick Off. “BBQ and Boots” attire is encouraged as we kick off the Capital Campaign with a night of Southern Fare and Country Karaoke!
