Throughout his career, OSF St. Joseph Medical Center director of specialty physician services Dr. Lamont Tyler has delivered presentations on numerous medical topics for Abbott Pharmaceuticals and other organizations within his professional field. Dr. Lamont Tyler also maintains membership with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), which will host its Diabetes Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) Working Group session in December 2016.
The Diabetes KSA Working Group will help physicians complete the 60-question KSA form required to meet the Family Medicine Certification Self-Assessment Activities requirements set forth by the American Board of Family Medicine. Formally known as the Self-Assessment Module, KSA covers a series of competency questions designed to assess one’s knowledge in a particular domain or area of concentration. An experienced faculty of family physicians will lead the group and collaborate with participants to determine the best answers.
Over the course of the one-day session, participants will receive the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge on an assortment of diabetes topics. Learning objectives include the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, non-pharmacologic management of diabetes mellitus, and the recognition and management of microvascular and macrovascular complications. Participants will also earn eight AAFP prescribed credits and eight American Medical Association Category 1 credits.
The AAFP will take place on December 2, 2016 at the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. To learn more about the group, visit aafp.org/cme/cme-topic/all/diabetes-sam/las-vegas.
