    Physicians often find it difficult to address sexual issues with their patients even when they know problems are likely.  As cancer treatments improve survival rates, quality of life issues become more prominent, including acknowledging the importance of having a rewarding sex life.  This presentation will focus on what you, as the primary care provider, can do to help your patients attend to their sex lives and work towards improving them.

     We live in a world of shadowy payments by drug makers to doctors, and hidden hospital charges sprung on patients. We need to know how health care dollars are spent. Then we can demand that they are spent better. Join us to discuss the power of transparency in moving towards a more just health care system.

    Independent documentary filmmaker Kathleen Foster will present and discuss her current work-in-progress: Profiled.

    In PROFILED racial profiling and police brutality are explored through the stories of black and Latin mothers of unarmed victims of fatal police shootings. Six months ago their ordeal was little known outside their communities. Today, with the widely circulated video of Eric Garner on Staten Island, killed in a police officer’s chokehold, followed just days later by the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the issues and concerns raised by the women resonate across the nation.

    This session will include excerpts from the film and discussion.

    The hospital based inpatient quality indicators are a set of measures that provide a perspective on hospital quality of care based on mandatory reporting by the Federal, State and private organizations. These indicators are varied depending on the specific program and include inpatient mortality, compliance with process measures, hospital acquired conditions and re-admission. These indicators are the basis for financial penalties and are used to inform the public on the quality of care provided to patients. It is imperative that all physicians understand these programs so that they can provide the highest quality of care to their patients, avoid financial penalties and preserve the reputation of the hospital.

    Race correction of lung function measurements is a routine practice in clinical medicine.  The rationale for race correction is rooted in the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson who commented on "pulmonary dysfunction" in slaves. This presentation will examine the history of lung function measurements, exploring how and why 18th century assumptions about race persist.
