Nutrition is integral to overall patient health and well-being. Orthopedics has not traditionally placed an emphasis on nutritional intake and its effects on pre- and post-operative patients; however, research shows the importance of its role in the speed of recovery and as well as decreased complication rates. By implementing best nutritional practices into the flow of orthopedic practice, we can both enable overweight patients to obtain transformational surgeries while optimizing recovery and the ability to return to physical activities.

Learning about the pillars of obesity management is one thing. Taking this information and applying it in clinical practice is another. In this activity, participants will learn how to incorporate essential components of obesity management, such as ordering diagnostic tests and labs and managing pharmacotherapy as well as integrating lifestyle components such as nutrition and physical activity, into a comprehensive obesity program. It will address the logistics such as frequency of follow-ups, length of visits, as well as billing and coding to make the education that PAs have gathered during the obesity track actionable and clinically applicable.

Managing diabetes consumes large portions of PAs’ time and energy and is a "part-time" job to people with diabetes (PWD). With U.S. annual diagnosed diabetes numbers at a staggering 11% of the population and 38% with pre-diabetes, generating a therapeutic alliance supporting lifelong learning and patient empowerment models is essential. This is a two-way street. Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) provide an evidence-based foundation empowering PWD to navigate self-management decisions and activities. DSMES is a cost-effective tool proven to improve health behaviors and health outcomes for PWD, yet its use is sub-optimal with less than 5% of Medicare beneficiaries and about 7% of privately insured using it. Why the low utilization? PAs must examine our role in empowering patients’ decision-making as “we are not always there,” to guide them. Learn how DSMES improves clinical time management while improving diabetes outcomes. Be part of the solution.

More than 107,000 Americans died from an overdose last year. While there has been a great push towards opioid stewardship, minimal access to treatment has created a vacuum which has been filled with fentanyl, fueling soaring overdose deaths. PAs in all fields of work are well-positioned to treat substance use disorders, as they would any other chronic medical condition. This session will help lay the foundation for rapid adoption of evidence-based treatment pathways and identify opportunities to continue to expand education in addiction medicine.
