Upon Completion of this learning activity, the participant will be able to:
Today, more than 75% of the maladies that cause your patients to consult with you are largely preventable or remediable through health behavior change. Sadly, 72% of patients fail to adhere to lifestyle & preventive recommendations and therapies!
Evidence-based medicine, electronic communications, availability of information on the internet, cost control, and societal trends have affected every aspect of medical care. In spite of all these changes, the importance of the practitioner-patient relationship remains a constant. While the ways of communication have evolved dramatically over the past two decades, the face-to-face role of the practitioner and the patient has not.
Recognizing the importance of both issues, the Institutes of Medicine now defines your patient’s experience as an important domain of quality; compassion, empathy, and communication are areas of increased focus for CG-CAHPS and HCAHPS scores; patient’s ratings of your communications & caring are heavily weighted in pay-for-performance provider plans; consumers can find patient’s evaluations of you on more than 150 websites. Moreover, the most patient-centric practitioners generate significantly lower diagnostic and therapeutic costs.
What’s missing in 21st century CME programs is an emphasis on these essential core competencies, which can be categorized as the ‘art’ of medicine. The New Art of Medicine Workshop provides the solution with a practical, hands-on, entertaining and highly experiential program intended to engage, stimulate, and enlighten you – in a fully immersive learning environment. This intensive, evidence-based, two-and-a-half-day workshop utilizes multiple learning modalities and environments – staged presentations, classroom, one-on-one, group, role-playing, indoor/outdoor, self-assessment & ‘homework’.
If you are really serious about getting the best results from the science of medicine, achieving long-term patient outcomes, radically differentiating your practice from others, maximizing patient loyalty, enhancing professional satisfaction and income, then this program is for you.

The educational process for Part III is both didactic and interactive with maximum audience participation. All of the most complex, interesting, and confusing cases experienced by Dr.Rouzier over the last ten years are presented. The participants decide on the corrective management with literature reviews to guide therapy. Be forewarned, as in the past, many concepts taught in other academies are contrary to the medical literature presented in this course. The attendee will decide therapy based on evidence based guidelines rather than public opinion. Although there are no medical boards for this type of practice, Part III is similar to a medical board that digs deeper into the complexities of age management medicine. Clinical cases will be analyzed to formulate appropriate treatments and management to improve the understanding and level of care provided to patients. In Parts I & II the cases and studies are simple and straightforward.
For years Part III attendees have lamented, “So is that all there is? Can’t there be more? Although there are new articles, research, updates, literature critiques, and sarcasm (of course), the majority of this course will be problem solving, case management, mistakes to avoid, and tricks of the trade. The audience will consist of those with significant experience, questions, and issues which makes for an excellent experience for both me and participants, as we all learn from patients and ourselves. Extensive literature review in Parts I, II, & III have not allowed me to present all the interesting and complicated cases and situations that I have encountered in the last 15 years of practice. So bring your tough cases, comments, thoughts, and ideas and have another fun weekend with your talented peers. This will be a collection of the most talented and experienced physicians in this industry. Enjoy.
Our patient population continues to get sicker and healthcare costs continue to rise. Our changing healthcare environment requires a different type of training than what is taught in medical schools. Preventable chronic diseases now dominate the top ten list for causes of death here in the U.S., and our physician burnout rate is at an all-time high.
Dominating our surveys are your requests for tools to help guide the transition to a practice focused on creating health, as well as better resources to more efficiently and effectively educate your patients. Many physicians are no longer willing to focus on treating chronic symptoms. The key today is working with patients to ensure healthy lifestyles to prevent many of the chronic diseases affecting our growing population.
Program Focus: Medical legal, practice development, marketing and patient experience.
The first day will address the practical side of creating a wellness practice, and includes legal and compliance issues for this type of practice that everyone should be aware of. We’ll also detail practice logistics around budgeting, finance, staffing, fees, location, and similar. Day two moves to practice development work, in terms of who you are and what message you are trying to communicate to your patients and outlying community. Having a clear message is an important component to building your practice.
Our marketing strategy encompasses both an organic approach to reaching out to the community in a real and meaningful way, as well as the more traditional (but a little more out of the box) approach to online marketing. Our online marketing talk has a specific focus towards patient education, and we’ll dedicate time both through marketing but also a more practical in-office approach that looks at educating patients in groups. This type of teaching allows for a wide range of lifestyle topics, but also looks at behavior and mindset in re-educating your patients. These are important considerations in order to affect positive change.
Finally, we will look at how you communicate with your patients, and what changes can be made to create better, more effective relationships that last a lifetime. In essence, how to create a patient experience that leaves your patients feeling happier, healthier, and embracing their healthcare experience and sharing their story with friends and family.
