Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™   CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-296   Overview: The number of drug overdoses in the United States continues to rise in tandem with the growing opioid epidemic. In 2020, nearly 92,000 people died from drug overdoses in the United States, which was an approximate 31% increase in just one year. This episode will highlight perceived barriers to harm reduction and show primary care providers how they can play a key role in overdose prevention.    Episode resource links: https://www.cdc.gov/opioids/overdoseprevention/reverse-od.html https://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/deaths/index.html#:~:text=Drug%20Overdose%20Deaths%20Remain%20High&text=Opioids%E2%80%94mainly%20synthetic%20opioids%20(other,of%20all%20drug%20overdose%20deaths).

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™   CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-295   Overview: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is typically diagnosed based on spirometry findings, but what if that finding isn’t what you expect? Spirometry measurements are compared to standard values for age, sex, and race. The use of race-based equations has been questioned in several clinical situations, and researchers are now raising similar concerns about the use of race-based equations in spirometry, which may lead to health inequities. Join us for an important discussion on how to overcome these potential disparities in diagnosing COPD.   Episode resource links: Liu GY, Khan SS, Colangelo LA, et al.

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™   CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-294   Overview: Fibromyalgia is a common and difficult to diagnose disease, with highly subjective symptoms. Another challenge is that treatment is dependent on a patient’s implementation lifestyle changes. This brief podcast walks you through the diagnosis of fibromyalgia and offers best evidence on effective treatments.   Episode resource links: Mediations:  JAMA Netw Open. 2022;5(5):e2212939 Acupuncture:  J Pain Res. 2022; 15: 315–329   Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-C   Music Credit: Richard Onorato

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™   CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-293   Overview: Evidence informs us that almost one-third of antibiotic prescriptions written for children in the United States are inappropriate, meaning they are not in line with evidence-based guidelines. Antibiotics are tremendous tools and beneficial when used appropriately; however, as with all pharmacological therapy, there are risks of adverse effects and healthcare cost. When prescribed inappropriately, they unnecessarily put children at risk and cause financial burden on individuals and the system. Please join the podcast team as we discuss recent evidence on these risks and burden and consider how this evidence can help improve practice.    Episode resource links: Butler AM, Brown DS, Durkin MJ, et al.

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™   CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-291   Overview: Concerns have been raised over guideline recommendations for lowering systolic blood pressure (BP) to 60 years. To achieve such targets often requires intensive BP treatments, which can result in harms from syncope or falls. Join us to review the results of a recently published meta-analysis done to estimate the time needed to potentially derive clinical benefit from such BP treatments in patients 60 years and older.    Episode resource links: JAMA Intern Med. 2022;182(6):660-667. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2022.1657   Guest: Robert A.

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ CME/CE Information and Claim Credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-288 Overview: Coffee is one of the most consumed beverages worldwide. An estimated 500 million cups are consumed per day in the United States. As testimony to this, count the number of coffee shops available—most with drive-through access—the next time you are out for a drive. A growing body of evidence indicates that moderate coffee consumption (2-3 cups per day) is associated with reduction in all-cause mortality. What hasn’t been looked at closely is the effect of coffee with sugar and artificial sweeteners on these measures. Join us while we discuss recent evidence regarding consumption of coffee—with or without sweeteners—and its association with all-cause mortality.
