Program Purpose / Objectives
This seminar is designed to provide the participant with an understanding of the role and value of screening in primary care and the importance of preventive therapy and risk reduction for adults. The course will also provide an overview of common diagnostic and management problems in adult primary care.

Upon completion, participants should be able to identify who benefits from cardiovascular screening, and from primary and secondary prevention of heart disease; assess which cancer screens apply to all adults, and which to selected populations; discuss new tools that may become available to screen for risk of cancer; counsel patients to modify their behavior and activity to reduce the risk of illness and disability and describe specific preventive and screening methods for common conditions and syndromes.

This seminar will be relevant to primary care practitioners of adult medicine.
