Course Description
The provision of preventive health care for all age groups can help to educate and to early identify common diseases before more serious health issues develop. The incidence of morbidity and mortality due to many chronic medical conditions, such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, hypertension, or obesity, are reviewed in terms of preventable causes and current trends. It is well accepted that the implementation of standard screening guidelines in everyday clinical practice can help patients identify most disease etiology and processes, and improve health. Common guidelines and teaching strategies are addressed as helpful tools and measures for the initial and follow-up evaluations of patients in everyday clinical practice.
