The 15 focused, case-based workshops below will be live streamed during the course. They will each be recorded during the live stream and made available to registrants for 90 days following the course's conclusion so that participants can learn from any or all of them.
Workshops T1 - T5
Live Streamed on Thursday, April 4, 2024, 4:30 - 6:00pm (ET)
T1: Calcium Cases - Joy Tsai, MD
In this workshop, we will cover both basic bread-and-butter and uncommon “zebra” cases. By working through these cases together, this workshop will help a busy clinician review basic bone and mineral metabolism pathophysiology as well as learn about innovative treatment strategies.
T2: Hypoglycemia - Deborah J. Wexler, MD
In this workshop, we will review the underlying pathophysiology of hypoglycemia, a complicated case of hypoglycemia in diabetes, and mini-cases illustrating examples of hypoglycemia in the absence of diabetes.
T3: Updates in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Adrenal Insufficiency ~*Includes commentary by a nurse* - Melanie Haines, MD
In this workshop, we will review updates in the diagnosis and treatment of adrenal insufficiency. We will examine the influence of cortisol assay techniques on the diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency. We will discuss new entities in the differential diagnosis of primary and central adrenal insufficiency, including immune checkpoint inhibitor-induced hypophysitis. We will summarize comorbid conditions that must be considered when a diagnosis of primary or central adrenal insufficiency is made. Lastly, we will assess how to appropriately counsel patients and other healthcare providers about adrenal sick day rules and the prevention of adrenal crisis.
T4: Topics in Male Reproduction: A Case-Based Approach - Ravikumar Balasubramanian, MBBS, PhD, MRCP (UK)
Ravikumar Balasubramanian will discuss diagnostic challenges and controversies relating to androgen replacement in men and through clinical cases will provide a framework for diagnosis and treatment of male hypogonadism. He will also discuss fertility considerations in men with secondary hypogonadism.
T5: Illustrative Cases of Thyroid Dysfunction ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus*- Nikolaos Stathatos, MD
In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss important points of both everyday questions that come up in our clinical practice as well as more complicated cases that will allow for a challenging debate on various aspects of thyroid pathology, pathophysiology, and management. These topics include cases from mild thyroid dysfunction, to medication-induced thyroid pathology, to thyroid cancer management. Primary Care providers will find this workshop especially helpful.
F1: Calcium and Bone Disorder Cases ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus* - Marc Wein, MD, PhD
In this case-based workshop, participants can update their approach to and understanding of bone and mineral disorders: metabolism, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. We provide updates and best practices for both common and uncommon topics, emphasizing exciting new advances in these disease areas.
F2: Challenges in Cystic Fibrosis-Related Diabetes: The Emerging Role of Diabetes Technology beyond Type 1 Diabetes - Melissa Putman, MD
In this workshop, we will briefly review the background, significance, and unique features of cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). We will then discuss cases illustrating some of the challenges in the diagnosis and management of CFRD In the outpatient and inpatient setting, highlighting the potential role for diabetes technology to improve diabetes care in this patient population.
F3: Pituitary Case Discussion: Perspectives from an Endocrinologist and a Neurosurgeon - Laura Dichtel, MD, MHS and Pamela Jones, MD, MS, MPH
In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to illustrate the importance of collaborative care of pituitary patients between an endocrinologist and a neurosurgeon. We will cover a range of pituitary diagnoses in these cases, with a focus on the endocrine workup, review of pituitary imaging, surgical approach, and follow-up care of these complex patients.
F4: Case-Based Approach to Reproductive Endocrinology - Margaret Lippincott, MD
In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss reproductive endocrinology pathophysiology. We will cover a range of reproductive endocrinology disorders affecting women and/or men, emphasizing new, clinically relevant information for screening, diagnosis, and treatment of these disorders.
F5: Practical Update on Thyroid Ultrasound - Giuseppe Barbesino, MD
The workshop is aimed at endocrinologists interested in the interpretation of thyroid ultrasound. In this interactive session, Dr. Barbesino will involve the audience in the interpretation of ultrasound images of thyroid disease and thyroid nodules.
S1: Calcium and Bone Disorder Cases: Topics in Pediatric and Transition Age Patients - Deborah Mitchell, MD
In this workshop, we will review cases of altered bone and mineral ion metabolism which present initially in pediatric and young adult patients. These cases will provide participants an interactive opportunity to review the pathophysiology of these more rare conditions as well as both conventional and emerging management strategies.
S2: Challenging Diabetes Cases ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus* ~*Includes commentary by a nurse practitioner*- Allison Kimball, MD
In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss diabetes challenges that primary care providers are likely to encounter. We will cover a range of challenging cases with a focus on evaluation and management of diabetes in primary care.
S3: Pediatric Endocrinology That an Adult Endocrinologist Should Know - Takara Stanley, MD
In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss pediatric endocrine topics that adult endocrinologists often encounter while caring for adults. With particular attention to differences between pediatric and adult pathophysiology and management, we will cover endocrine conditions that are diagnosed in childhood and continue into adulthood, such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia, type 2 diabetes, growth hormone deficiency, and delayed puberty/hypogonadism. We will also discuss best practices for transitions of care.
S4: Challenging Reproductive Endocrine Cases - Maria Stamou, MD, PhD
In this workshop, we will review clinical cases of females and males with rare and common reproductive disorders with the goal to understand the physiology of human reproductive biology and discuss the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of endocrine disorders of reproduction.
S5: Lessons Learned from Challenging Thyroid Cases - Nikolaos Stathatos, MD
In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss important points of both everyday questions that come up in our clinical practice as well as more complicated cases that will allow for a challenging debate on various aspects of thyroid pathology, pathophysiology, and management. These topics include cases from mild thyroid dysfunction, to medication-induced thyroid pathology, to thyroid cancer management.
