    Presented by The Genesis Foundation for Children and Boston Children’s HospitalPersonalized medicine and genetics is now a core component of clinical practice, yet the availability of real-world educational programs remains a gap in both medical school and in clinical practice.  This course demonstrates real-world evidence through the use of clinical case study and application in a variety of practice settings and patients.Genetic medicine has changed dramatically over the past few years with an explosion in available tests including tests marketed directly to the consumer.  Previously untreatable hereditary conditions now have specific therapies and genomics in every day medicine allows for personalizing pharmacological dosing and therapeutic interventions. Staying current in this rapidly changing field is challenging. A 2014 survey of physicians found that more than half reported a lack of training to identify genetic risk factors, select appropriate tests and accurately interpret the results.  CME opportunities to address this knowledge gap are limited and online resources may be out of date or commercial industry-sponsored.  This course will incorporate didactic sessions on topics requested by the participants, question/answer sessions and offer opportunity for interactive debate about practical and ethical issues of incorporating genetic medicine into routine primary care.Featuring Keynote Speaker: Philip Reilly, M.D. author of Orphan, The Quest to Save Children with Rare Genetic Disorders. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Reilly's book.

    Target Audience

    The content of this course is designed to meet the educational needs of primary care physicians and medical students interested in the field of genetics/genetic counseling. Patients and patient advocates associated with a life science company or nonprofit organization are also encouraged to attend.

    Continuous Improvement Training – Lean Six Sigma White Belt: Process Improvement ToolsLean Six Sigma is a combination of two proven continuous improvement methods: Lean and Six Sigma. Lean Six Sigma is focused on creating value for customers by improving efficiency, safety and quality, while reducing waste and variation. Want to change the world but not sure how? Learn some important process improvement tools that can help drive change in your part of the world. This goal of this introductory course is to teach the mindset and tools that are fundamental to the success of Lean and Six Sigma in healthcare. 

    • White Belt is led by real world practitioners, giving participants insight on how to apply these tools in their own job.
    • The day is meant to be interactive throughout, with small group exercises, class discussion, video examples and active learning opportunities
    • Through the use of a simulated Emergency Department, participants get to apply six specific tools to improve a process: Eight Wastes, Process Mapping, Fishbone, 5S, Mistake Proofing, and Standard Work.  

    Class begins at 8:00am and concludes by 5:00pm. There will be an hour for lunch around 12:00pm and several breaks throughout the day.Upon completion of this course, you are eligible to sign up for the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course.

    Asthma is the most common chronic illness of childhood, affecting almost 7 million children in the United States. Poorly controlled asthma limits activities, interferes with school attendance and can result, all too often, in emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Our challenge remains to provide safe and effective treatment of asthma and allergies. We developed this program to provide a forum to discuss current topics related to the diagnosis and management of pediatric asthma and allergy with primary care providers, who care for the majority of these children.Topics Include:

    • Wheezing in the Very Young
    • Management of Acute Asthma in the Emergency Room 
    • ICU Asthma Management 
    • Teaching and Care Coordination in the Severe Asthma Clinic and more 

    Target Audience: 

    • Physicians
    • Physician Assistants
