For many patients, seeing the doctor is about getting treatment for an acute condition. A severe cough. A pain in their knee. A headache that won't go away. Primary care physicians are usually the first-line healthcare providers to see patients with acute conditions. How do you differentiate what is benign from what is potentially deadly? What are the best treatment options for common forms of acute complaints? This course will teach you the critical issues you will need to know in the management of acute illness.

Learn to:

  • Assess different forms of acute musculoskeletal complaints.
  • Distinguish the signs of severe illness for different acute complaints.
  • Analyze effective and evidence-based treatment for acute complaints.

Your tutor is Dr. Charles Vega, multiple times awarded Health Sciences Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at University of California, Irvine and an expert in the field of family medicine. He will make sure you are at your best for the exam.

Me gustaría que sea más práctico no tan teórico. Que trate presentación clínica, elementos de alarma de cada enfermedad y tratamiento con dosis. Espero que sirva el comentario

This is exactly what I need to decipher the question and understand the one and two step processes to answer the questions.
