Family Medicine Leaders: Interview with Ken Bertka, MD: OAFP and AAFP Leader, EMR Expert, Family Man
After traditional opening comments about patient and physician blogs, followed by medical factoids, Dr Synonymous introduces our special guest Ken Bertka, MD. Dr Bertka is one of the hard workers in Family Medicine. He just finished service on the AAFP Board of Directors and continues a decades long influential relationship with the Ohio AFP, including service as President and Delegate to the AAFP Congress of Delegates. Ken loved his role as co-editor of the Core Content Review of Family Medicine which has been a leader in CME for family doctors for over 40 years. You'll enjoy hearing of Ken's work in Toledo covering a vast array of family medicine positions and continuing patient care. He's an EMR expert and an entertainer. Ken is a role model for fathers and husbands, demonstrating a commitment to family and marriage even more focused than his medical career work. We'll have fun with a discussion about family and Family Medicine. And always we talk about how to honor and protect patients during the massive change coming in health care,including mention of the patient- physician relationship and socio-technical innovation that helps with clinical and human decisions.
