Course Summary

Course: WB4066
CE Expiration: 06/30/2020, 11:59 PM ( ET )
Available CE: CME, CNE, CEU, CPH, CHES

This case study is designed to increase knowledge and enhance competency of primary care providers’ and other health professionals’ such that they can implement strategies and improve their healthcare practices. Content is derived from actual case studies.

This training is designed to increase primary care providers’ and other health professionals’ knowledge of Tetrachloroethylene Toxicity in the environment and to aid in the evaluation of potentially exposed patients. By introducing or enhancing the principles and practices of environmental medicine for primary health care providers (consideration of environmental etiologies in the differential diagnosis, taking appropriate public health actions, and providing related patient education and counseling which supports preventive actions), practice gaps in environmental medicine can be addressed and practice adoption supported. In this way, physicians and other healthcare personnel have the opportunity to increase their knowledge/competency and make applicable practice changes to better prevent, diagnose, treat, counsel, and manage patients exposed to chemicals in the environment.
