Buprenorphene Waiver Workshop (blended learning, 4 hr live + 4 hour online)
This optional workshop, offered by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and hosted by CAFP, covers all medications and treatments for opioid use disorders and provides the required education needed to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. The course is a combination of live and online education. It will be held Sunday, March 31 from 1:00 – 5:00pm and includes lunch. Learners are encouraged to take the online 4-hour component before this live component and will be sent all information upon registration. The combined online enduring material and live activity will provide the required 8 hours needed to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders. Additional fee applies.
Point-of-Care-Ultrasound (POCUS) has rapidly established itself as an indispensable tool and the standard of care in many areas of medicine. The goal of this session is to introduce attendees to some of the most high yield application of POCUS for the family physician, including using POCUS to diagnose: heart failure, kidney stone, AAA, cholecystitis, DVT, and musculoskeletal pathology such as rotator cuff tears. Additional fee applies.
This workshop is for those of you who want to better understand the entire spectrum of personal, professional and organizational factors that influence physician well-being. We will explore tangible ways to look after yourself and make your workplace mentally healthier.

Part of this interactive workshop will include attendees critically evaluating a “case study” of a typical person trying to lose weight and get healthier. It will help attendees have deep “ah ha’s” related to hidden beliefs that undermine prioritizing and fitting realistic self-care activities into their day. Michelle Segar will explain a framework and methods to help attendees become more strategic and realistic with self-care. Additional fee applies.
Student-Resident Practice Workshop
Gather for this free workshop designed with Residents and Students in mind: * 5 things you need to know when you leave residency * Practice options - where do you see your future? Create your message and develop your "elevator pitch"
Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) Group Study Workshops
We will offer two KSAs at the Forum: Medical Genomics on Friday and Women’s Health on Sunday.

For those learners eligible for MOC II credit, the workshop is worth 8 AAFP Prescribed credits upon completion (otherwise, 4 AAFP Prescribed credits will be awarded).
