Available CE: CME, CNE, CEU, CPH, CHES

Seminars are designed to increase knowledge and change competency of the primary care providers`and other health professionals`practices and strategies. Content is derived from actual case studies.

The Carbon Tetrachloride case study/monograph is one in a series of self-instructional publications designed to increase primary care providers`and other health professional`s knowledge of hazardous substances in the environment and to aid in the evaluation of potentially exposed patients.

By introducing or enhancing the principles and practice of environmental medicine for primary health care providers within this educational offering (including how to take an appropriate exposure history, 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 lead.

The monograph begins with a composite case study that describes a realistic encounter with a patient followed by an initial progress check and questions and answers. Tables and key points are presented. This is followed by a post-test. The participant may then complete a course evaluation and print out their certificate of completion.
