Part Two follows the Part One series with advanced concepts and up-to-date research. This two and one-half day seminar will keep you current on the appropriate skills needed to manage everyday problems. It will serve as a short refresher, including important new therapies, clinical pearls, tricks of the trade, advanced techniques and difficult case management sessions. The field of age management medicine continues to grow at a rapid rate, making it difficult to stay abreast of all the changes. Included in Part Two is an hour-long lecture that reviews the scientific literature giving credence for this type of practice. Over 200 peer-reviewed articles, the foundation for Dr. Rouzier’s advanced course, will be provided as a reference for the participant. This is the same lecture Dr. Rouzier gives to medical academies to inform physicians of the health benefits of age management therapies.
Part II: Mastering the Protocols for Optimization of Hormone Replacement Therapy - Advanced Protocols - April 2020
This course has been approved for 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, 21 Nursing Contact Hours (21 pharmacologic hours), 21 Hours Pharmacy Credit (knowledge based)
Hilton Salt Lake City Center
All participants will receive an electronic and printed syllabus with their registration. The eSyllabus will be available for download at least one week prior to the course. An email notification will be sent when it is available for download and will include links and instructions. This early release provides an opportunity to download and review the materials prior to the course.
PLEASE NOTE: We request you download the material prior to the event as internet access in the meeting room may be limited. We will also have flash drives available for those that find this easier than downloading. The syllabus can be saved in Adobe Reader which allows participants to add "sticky notes" directly on the slide as the speaker is talking. THese notes can be saved permanently to your document. Other recommended applications include iBooks (for apple mobile devices) and iAnnotate (for mobile devices). Lastly, put perhaps most important for many of us, a printed syllabus is available with an option for good old fashioned note taking.
