Management of Diabetes--Diabetes mellitus, often referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly. The health care costs associated with diabetes and its complications are growing at an alarming rate.  The ADA has released new standards of medical care for diabetes which will give clinicians the tools to provide desirable goals and targets for patients.

Management of Geriatric Disorders--In 2011, the oldest baby boomers—Americans born between 1946 and 1964—will start to turn 65. Today, 40 million people in the United States are ages 65 and older, but this number is projected to more than double to 89 million by 2050. Although the "oldest old"—those ages 85 and older—represent only 15 percent of the population ages 65 and older today, their numbers are projected to rise rapidly over the next 40 years. By 2050, the oldest old will number 19 million, over one-fifth of the total population ages 65 and older.  As the elderly population continues to increase, the elderly will become more vulnerable to certain diseases due to aging and physical deterioration of the body.

Management of Hepatitis-- Hepatitis is an inflammatory condition of the liver tissue. Hepatitis may be temporary (acute) or long term (chronic). Hepatitis is commonly caused by a viral infection, but there are other possible causes of hepatitis. Some people are asymptomatic, and some symptoms may not occur until the damage affects the liver.  Worldwide in 2015, Hepatitis A occurred in about 114 million people. Chronic Hepatitis B affected about 343 million people and chronic Hepatitis C about 142 million people.  There are more than a million deaths each year from Hepatitis, most of which occur indirectly from liver scarring or liver cancer.  In the United States, Hepatitis A is estimated to occur in about 2,500 people a year and results in about 75 deaths.

Management of Hypertension--Hypertension, often referred to as high blood pressure, is the most common condition seen in primary care and leads to myocardial infarction, stroke, renal failure, and death if not detected early and treated appropriately.  Hypertension affects 1 billion people worldwide and is the number one reason listed for office visits. The Eighth Joint National Committee (JNC8) focused on a rigorous, evidence-based approach to recommend treatment thresholds, goals, and medications in the management of hypertension in adults.  The home study will provide a detailed review of hypertension and evidence based recommendations for the management of high blood pressure.

Validation of Prescriptions for Controlled Substances--In 2010 prescription drug abuse hit an all-time high in Florida. Florida led the nation in diverted prescription drugs. Florida was at the forefront of the drug abuse problem because Florida did not have a strong oversight of physician prescribing practices, and there was not a prescription drug monitoring program. Laws and regulations have changed, and there is significantly less pain management clinics registered in Florida. Pharmacists must now complete the required continuing education course on controlled substances at each renewal cycle.
