    Heart failure impacts the lifestyle of patients in a variety of ways. This talk will review the recommendations that the 2022 Guidelines for the Management of Heart Failure provide for self-care, diet, exercise, cardiac rehab, and mental health. Optimal care will be detailed while also discussing barriers that prevent optimal care. This presentation will highlight ways that primary care clinicians can support patients with heart failure and optimize patient quality of life. | 1.0 credits (0.25 Pharmacology) | $30

    The number of people experiencing heart failure continues to grow, making it imperative that primary care clinicians understand the management of heart failure. This presentation will review the new 2022 Guidelines for the Management of Heart Failure. Optimal heart failure care and how primary care clinicians can partner with patients and heart failure providers will be reviewed. Additionally, optimal care is always the goal, but it is often limited by reality so real-life barriers to optimal heart failure care and patient-centered care will be discussed. Ways that primary care clinicians care for patients after heart transplant will also be reviewed. | 1.0 credits (0.50 Pharmacology) | $30

    The messages used in diabetes care are historically judgmental and shame/blame based. These messages have an impact on the way people with diabetes think about and care for themselves. This session will present the background and evidence for changing the way we speak to and about people with diabetes, including stories that highlight the problem, suggestions for change, and resources to help nurse practitioners make changes, communicate more effectively, and help their colleagues do the same. | 1.0 credits (0 Pharmacology) | $27.50

    Compelling evidence suggests that both medications and therapeutic interventions are effective in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. The current “state of the science” involves multiple modalities to produce better outcomes than those observed with the use of either psychopharmacology or therapy alone. Nurse practitioners in all settings need to understand how various therapeutic interventions can profoundly influence clients’ ability to cope and change. Using the unifying framework developed by Hubble, Duncan and Miller, we examine the four common elements that account for much of the improvement seen in clients, regardless of the approach taken. These constructs are applied to a variety of simple, brief approaches that are easily enacted – and easily adapted – to any patient encounter. | 1.0 credits (0.33 Pharmacology) | $30
