IAPA 2020 Virtual CME Conference
On-Demand Session Overview

Coordination of Care for Children with Hemoglobinopathies
Sarah (Hall) Cooper, MHS, PA-C

This session will provide an overview of sickle cell disease and thalassemia and will discuss practical approaches to coordinating primary and subspecialty care for children with hemoglobinopathies.

Home Care Medicine
Jasmina Cheeseman, PA-C

The session will educate new PAs and PAs in specialties about the benefits of home care medicine and identification of patients who would be best served by home health care. The presentation will elaborate on when PAs should refer a patient to home health services and what collaborative care looks like when home care medicine is part of the care team. The intent of advocating for this specialty is to provide another resource to PAs when caring for complex and high risk patients that may fall through the cracks of traditional outpatient and inpatient medicine. Utilization of home care services can provide better access to care.

Individualized Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes: New and Novel Treatments
Randy Brush, MS, PA-C

The pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM 2) which contributes to hyperglycemia and its complications is complex, with eight principal organ defects widely accepted in diabetes management. Now that there are 11 different classes of glycemic medications outside of insulin therapy, it can seem daunting, but it is imperative that clinicians understand each class’ mechanism of action and potential beneficial effects as well as adverse events. In differentiating them, one can build an appropriate glycemic control regimen for patients which aligns with their other health goals and takes into consideration their comorbidities. Using the right medical therapy can enhance patients' adherence and outcomes by being cost-effective, providing additional health benefits, decreasing comorbid health risks and synergistically improving glycemic control.
