CME Publication Gives Clinicians a Leg Up in Treating Disorders of the Lower Extremities
Date:5/21/2008

MONTVALE, N.J., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- A young flight attendant complains of swelling and tightness in her right leg and a heavy feeling that prevents her from exercising. Will the ultrasound results indicate deep vein thrombosis or peripheral arterial disease?

Overlapping symptomatology and the frequent presence of comorbidities make it challenging to differentiate among leg disorders in a primary care practice. The Journal of Family Practice has published "Differentiating Leg Disorders: Strategies for Diagnosis and Treatment in the Primary Care Setting", a CME supplement featuring a series of case studies-like the one above-designed to enhance efficiency and accuracy in recognizing and diagnosing these disorders.

Readers of "Differentiating Leg Disorders: Strategies for Diagnosis and Treatment in the Primary Care Setting" are eligible to obtain free CME credit. The supplement is available online at http://www.jfponline.com/supplements.asp?id=6209.

This supplement to the May 2008 issue of The Journal of Family Practice, a peer-reviewed journal distributed to 96,000 family physicians, is part of the Biology of Leg Disorders (BOLD(R)) educational initiative, sponsored by Professional Postgraduate Services(R). This CME activity is supported by an educational grant from AR Scientific, Inc.

Nurse practitioners and physician assistants can find this supplement on http://www.apctoday.com, an online resource for advanced practice clinicians.
