TOMF is accredited by the AOA to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The AOA designates this program for 6 AOA Category 1A Credits.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) through the joint providership of THMEP and TOMF. THMEP is accredited by ArMA to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

THMEP designates this live activity for a maximum of 6 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Program Description: The Southwestern Conference on Medicine Primary Care Update is an annual event designed to bridge practice gaps between primary care providers' current knowledge and practice performance and the ever evolving standards of care in modern medicine.

Program Learning Gap:
Primary care providers are minimally exposed to the continual influx of new research data, recent studies and emerging disease states and lack expert mentoring to be able to improve their practice performance and patient outcomes. As noted by the CDC, infectious diseases are a serious threat that need to be addressed and examined. Primary examples of this are the recent 2014 Ebola and 2015 MERS outbreaks internationally and the 2014 measles outbreak domestically. Due to infectious diseases' ability to spread quickly and have potentially terminal effects, it is important for primary physicians to recognize the symptoms and characteristics of infectious diseases to effectively treat and diagnose patients.

Program Resources:
The content of this educational activity was developed based on data collected from previous Conference attendees, previous outcomes measurement tools, the Planning Committee's perceptions of needed improvements in primary care diagnoses and treatments, national and local statistical information and the review of current trends and technology and medical literature.

Program Learning Objectives:
Participants in this activity will be able to recognize, analyze and assess patients with high risk factors for infectious disease threats in primary care, identify and utilize treatment methods and interventions, review updated guidelines for diagnosis and treatment, discuss cases regarding new treatment options, technological advances and prevention techniques and appropriately evaluate patients for treatment and/or referral.

Good News! Previous AOA policy dictated that no more than 25 of the 50 required specialty credits per three year cycle may come from osteopathic foundation seminars like our Southwestern Conference on Medicine. This specialty credit cap has been removed for 2015 which is also the last year of the cycle! 

Anticipated AOA Specialty Credits Include: 6 Family Medicine, 6 Internal Medicine.
