WeCare CME Conferences is Teaching Doctors how to Teach Patients About Lifestyle Everybody knows that diet, exercise and other aspects of lifestyle play a significant role in health. But the specifics are less well understood. To what extent does lifestyle cause or contribute to disease and disability? And what exactly is a healthy lifestyle anyway? There is much confusion about what type of diet or exercise is best, not to mention how much sleep, stress or sex is ideal.

Nor is it clear how best to motivate people to change their habits. This lack of clarity has inspired a growing movement to inform health care professionals who will then inform their patients about the importance of lifestyle in preventing and treating disease. Its aims are to disseminate scientific research about what it means to live well and to encourage doctors and other providers to incorporate this knowledge into their practices.

According to American Pain Society estimates, 50 million people are partially or totally disabled by pain and 45% of all Americans seek care for persistent pain at some point in their lives. Pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek medical attention and a symptom encountered by every physician. it addresses principles of pain physiology, pain assessment, pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management options, pain in special populations (e.g., older adults, children), persistent nonmalignant pain, and cancer pain.
