November 21, 2015 – Understanding Integrative Medicine and Potential Drug Interactions: Planting the Seeds for NPs and their Patients
Minimize the risks of traditional treatments for your patients. This program offers important information on drug interactions as they relate to dietary supplements, botanicals, natural products and OTCs. Nearly 4 in 10 Americans are using some form of complementary or alternative therapies (CAM), yet many practitioners don't understand the critical medication implications. Learn what you need to know for your daily practice regarding drug interactions with CAM from our very highly rated faculty. Have fun while doing it. The course includes the use of Socrative, an online polling program that is a favorite of pharma students. You will participate in the review of cases from a variety of disciplines. Bring your favorite device, a tablet, smart phone or computer to make the day more fulfilling and rewarding.
