Seminar Overview:

Healthcare practitioners are currently faced with the challenges of both treating and preventing the ever-increasing incidence of chronic diseases.  The need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners. PES is fortunate to have dental and medical practitioners representing a variety of specialties participating in the CME/CE sessions. PES understands the importance of offering inter-professional healthcare education, allowing colleagues to gain cross-specialty perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease.

More than 70 million Americans experience fatigue, irritability, depression, inability to concentrate, memory problems, loss of productivity and auto or workplace accidents, primarily due to sleep disorders. These symptoms affect many aspects of your life and if left untreated, some sleep disorders may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke. The course will educate healthcare providers on sleep disorders as the physician typically bears the burden of diagnosis, however, dentists, psychologists and respiratory therapists are usually involved.  The course will also educate healthcare providers on how to comfortably communicate the importance of advance care planning and describe the steps of the advance care planning process.

Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:

  • Healthcare System in Egypt: Medicine & Dentistry
  • Introduction to the Basics of Sleep Physiology
  • Sleep Apnea – Overview and Diagnosis
  • Review of Oral appliances for treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing
  • Evidence Based Review of Longevity Strategies
  • Overview of Planning Considerations for Health and Aging

Learning Objectives:

Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.

By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.

Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

The healthcare industry worldwide continues to face challenges and obstacles with providing quality healthcare and patient outcomes with continuing budgetary and resource challenges. Healthcare delivery is focusing more on prevention at the community level to meet these challenges.  Scandinavian countries, including Norway, have by necessity developed a healthcare delivery model combining population-based public health principles and prevention with clinical medicine due to their isolated locale and limited resources. Through professional exchanges with in-country practitioners, this program explores Scandinavia’s commitment to primary care as key to improving population health, how to effectively deal with the aging population while keeping rising healthcare costs down, and how to keep up with and utilize the newest technology.  By design, this program offers opportunities for medical professionals to compare and contrast cultural perspectives with current best practices in their own professional setting.  During this program, we will be looking at varied practice models from hospital and clinics. Each have a unique approach; however, we all desire the same outcome.

Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:

  • Scandinavian Healthcare System: History, Challenges & Conquests
  • Updates & Scandinavian Perspectives in Dentistry
  • Community Healthcare Delivery: From Prenatal to Palliative Care
  • Oral Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
  • Generational & Gender Perspectives in Medical Care
  • Travel Medicine Updates & Medicine at Sea

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.

  • Conduct educational healthcare programs to learn about best practice models reflecting current approaches in medicine and healthcare across different cultures for providing quality patient outcomes
  • Provide professional educational exchanges with international colleagues, healthcare educational organizations and clinics to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease
  • Allow medical/healthcare professionals to compare and contrast current best practices in medical/healthcare delivery to provide quality patient outcomes in their own professional setting

Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.

By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting
