    Abstract

    Clinical Controversies Recently, both national and international authorities have promulgated conflicting statements on vitamin D testing and treatment. What are clinicians and patients to do?

    This webinar will address the existing data so that participants can answer these five key clinical questions:

    • Who might be at risk for low vitamin D? 
    • Can we assess for vitamin D deficiency by physical exam? 
    • Is a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin sufficient?
    • What are the best means to assure sufficient vitamin D levels?
    • What research questions still need to be answered?
    • Sufficient time will be available for a live question and answer period for all real-time participants.

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Understand the role of vitamin D as a hormone
    2) Identify which patients are at greatest risk for low vitamin D
    3) Recognize the clinical indications for vitamin D testing and treatment
