Illinois - AACE 7th Annual Meeting

October 14, 2017

Welcome, and thank you for attending the Illinois-AACE 7th Annual Meeting.

The Illinois Chapter of AACE program committee has worked very hard to provide a relevant activity for the practicing clinical physician and other healthcare providers seeking education with an emphasis in endocrine disease.

This program has been planned to provide pertinent scientific and clinical information to help you achieve the best solutions in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of patients presenting with endocrine disease. Attendees will obtain updates in not only common and uncommon endocrine disorders, but also newer treatment modalities.

Providing exceptional patient care requires continuing high quality education. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) was founded in 1991 by a visionary group of leaders to serve as the active voice for clinical endocrinologists. The impetus behind AACE's efforts has always been quality and cost-effective patient care for those with endocrine diseases and disorders. We hope that you will find this program of great value to you in your practice.

Target Audience

Endocrinologists, physicians, advanced practice clinicians and other health care professionals in Illinois who practice, or are interested in, the treatment of endocrine disease.

Learning Objectives

  1. After participating in a pre-meeting assessment tool, attendees will be able to recognize areas of potential shortcoming and strive to improve knowledge and consequential healthcare practices.
  2. Apply clinical and laboratory findings optimally in evaluation of patients with thyroid nodules
  3. Use molecular diagnostic tests appropriately in patients with thyroid nodules
  4. Apply latest management recommendations in patients with thyroid cancer
  5. Review basic infrastructure required and principles used for downloading diabetes technology
  6. Review different types of sensor/pump examples for downloading interpretation
  7. Review different current and future platforms for diabetes downloading
  8. Inform the endocrinologist on prevalence and scope of diabetic foot ulcers
  9. Guide the endocrinologist on when to refer patients with diabetic foot ulcers
  10. Update the endocrinologist on evaluation and risk factors of diabetic foot ulcers
  11. Inform the endocrinologist on podiatric management of diabetic foot ulcers
  12. Understand the challenges in making a definitive diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome during the adolescent years.
  13. Discuss the long term reproductive and metabolic outcomes associated with polycystic ovary syndrome.
  14. Discuss responses to various treatment approaches for polycystic ovary syndrome during adolescence.
  15. Describe the 3 main mechanisms of molecular localization
  16. Identify some limitations of molecular imaging
  17. Understand how molecular imaging and therapy may be applied in the near future
  18. Attendees will be able to measure learning that occurred that will enable the use of new healthcare techniques and practices and to review or confirm existing care modalities.
