The 2017 Freeport Physicians’ Education Day, Pearls, Perils and Pitfalls in Geriatric Practice, will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at St. George Banquet Hall.
We are looking forward to another exceptional educational experience, showcasing both local physicians and guest speakers. Topics will include: primary care of patients with chronic kidney disease; Parkinson’s disease; prognostication of end-of-life in dementia; new developments in the treatment of diabetes; congestive heart failure; when to start and stop thromboprophylaxis; and the 10 worst drugs in geriatric care. Presentations will be of interest to physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
Our keynote address will feature Dr. Jeff Blackmer, VP of Medical Professionalism at the Canadian Medical Association and will focus on the current landscape in Medical Assistance in Dying.
