Conference Summary

The Post-Surgical Elbow, Wrist and Hand is organized by Health Click and would be held during Nov 04 - 05, 2017 at North American Seminars Inc, Franklin, Tennessee, United States of America. This cme conference has been approved with 15 credits.

This course will serve as a review and update on systematic overview of the anatomy/physiology and common structures involved in specific diagnoses will be provided along with healing timelines for fractures, nerves, tendons and soft tissue. Post-operative wound care will also be discussed, including dupuytrens release, pin/fracture care and incision/open wound management.
This evidence based information will give you the confidence to progress your patient through the healing stages while considering the pathophysiology and pharmacological effects in the rehabilitation of your post-surgical patient. Review of post-operative diagnostic images will help increase your capacity to correlate imaging and clinical findings. Throughout this course, the importance of patient-centered care, professional collaboration and current evidence-based interventions will be emphasized to ensure exceptional patient outcomes.
At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to utilize clinical reasoning skills to establish treatment plans to promote proper healing and function in the post surgical elbow, wrist and hand patient.

• Identify critical anatomical structures of the elbow, wrist and hand and the ranges of motion available at each joint.
• Identify plans and procedures integrating clinical reasoning and evidence to facilitate best outcomes on injured tissues.
• Understand and discuss the healing properties of tendon, nerves, ligaments and bone and apply the knowledge into any clinical situation.
