Louisiana State University (LSU) Orofacial Pain Continuum
Louisiana State University (LSU) Orofacial Pain Continuum is organized by LSU Health New Orleans Continuing Dental Education and would be held during Jun 02, 2017 - May 12, 2018 at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America. This cme conference has been approved with maximum of 74 hours of clinical CDE credit.
Dentists who treat patients with TMD, sleep disorders, and other types of orofacial pain are the primary target audience for this multi-disciplinary and inter-professional continuum. Because many physicians and other health care practitioners also treat orofacial pain patients, they are encouraged and welcome to attend this continuum as well. The purpose of The 2017-2018 LSU Orofacial Pain ContinuumTM is to establish a new category of CE for orofacial pain that is more comprehensive yet can be completed in a one year, 5-weekend C.E. program. After completing this continuum, participants should be better able to recognize, evaluate, diagnose, manage and refer patients who have TMD, sleep disorders, and other types of orofacial pain.
A limited-attendance, interactive program with a low student to faculty ratio, the continuum facilitates one-on-one learning opportunities, relationship building, and bonding between/among participants and faculty. Designed around five sessions at LSU Health New Orleans School of Dentistry, each daily session typically starts at 8:30 am and ends at approximately 5:00 pm and includes breakfast, lunch, beverage and snack breaks.
Before the first session and between each session, participants will have self-study assignments. Self-study will consist of reading assignments in books and journals that apply to each subsequent session. These reading assignments are a key element of this comprehensive approach to orofacial pain continuing education. Not including self-study assignments, a maximum of 74 hours of clinical CDE credit will be earned after completing the five sessions.
