Interventional radiology is an approach to care for patients who can benefit from minimally invasive image-guided therapies. Advancements in interventional care afford improved patient care, quality and overall outcomes. These new therapies are best served with a multidisciplinary team approach coordinated by a health care team of different specialties involved in the treatment. The development of multidisciplinary care teams has been shown to improve the outcome of patients. The course will focus on three core competencies: medical knowledge, patient care and procedural skills, and practice-based learning and improvement. The course will include a series of case presentations, discussions and interactive learning focused on addressing the advanced minimally invasive image-guided therapies and multidisciplinary management.

All sessions will be held at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC.

Target Audience

The meeting attendance is for academic IR faculty, fellows, residents and interested medical students.  There will be no registration fee, however all attendees must RSVP online via the Registration tab.

Update in Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders
Friday, September 14, 2018 7:00 AM - 5:15 PM The Anlyan Center for Medical Research and Education (TAC), New Haven, CT

Specialties: General Practice, Hospitalist, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Geriatric Medicine, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Sleep Medicine

Movement disorders rank among the most common neurological diseases and their impact on individuals and their families is enormous. In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for Movement Disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. Unfortunately, while the mechanisms underlying movement disorders are being elucidated, there remains a dearth of available therapeutic options for patients.  

This workshop endeavors to provide an update in Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders spotlighting advances in the identification of symptomatology and management of the diseases. We hope to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, and leverage cross-disciplinary expertise with the ultimate goal of translating promising clinical practice and clinical research into successful treatments. 

This conference will be held at The Anlyan Center for Medical Research and Education (TAC), 1st Floor Auditorium, 300 Cedar Street, New Haven, CT.

Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in our society as well as a significant source of morbidity. Health care costs associated with cardiovascular disease are among the highest. More than ever a good partnership with our associates in primary care is critical to provide state of the art, streamlined and comprehensive cardiac care. Providing updates on "bread and butter" cardiology is essential and the interaction during the event should shore up communication and working relationships with providers on the front line.

The course directors of this one day symposium designed the program to include a series of 20 minute lectures on key cardiology topics applicable to the practice of general internal medicine.

Severe Asthma 2018: Advances in Pathogenesis and Treatment

Asthma affects over 300 million individuals worldwide, and between 5-10% of Americans, making it one of the most prevalent common chronic diseases. Insight into medical biology provides insight into disease mechanisms. As such, asthma research is shifting from a broad perspective to a narrower focus that includes cellular profiles, protein analysis and genetic markers combined with clinical measures. This symposium will address underlying pathophysiology of asthma, current issues related to heterogeneity and novel therapies.

There is a major growth in the incidence of atherosclerosis in the USA. Heart failure is a global problem with an estimated prevalence of 38 million patients worldwide; a number that is increasing with the aging of the population. Given this, there has been marked interest in different ways to treat patients both invasive and medically. In addition, the current management of oncology has resulted in a growing need to understand the ways in how it could be approached. This two-day meeting is designed to educate physicians and other health care providers on advances in the diagnosis and treatment of complex cardiac diseases.

Day 1: Friday, October 26, 2018 ~ 7:00am - 4:15pm
