Providence Regional Medical Center Everett
Meeting Description: 

Conference Description:

Attendees will learn best-practices and evidence-based information on a variety of both conventional and atypical conditions seen in a primary care practice. Being held on the Rainbow Island of Maui, Hawaii, this course lends itself to a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of opportunities for attendees to discuss hot topics, what they’ve learned and what they have questions about with faculty, their peers and collaborators.

This year’s PSJ Hawaii Conference – Riding the Waves of Primary Care Conference will include a number of interesting and useful topics all aiming to assist the PCP in decision-making with their patients. The focus will be on practical skills and recommendations from specialists that can help the PCP succeed in the rapidly changing healthcare field. This will be an exciting exploration of new and emerging surgical options in Neurosurgery and Orthopedics, as well as Uro-Gynecology. We will also hear from experts in Cardiology, Infectious Disease, Addiction Medicine, Oncology and Palliative Care. Finally, we will explore population health with an update from Hawaii’s Blue Zones Project.
