Conference Brochure

National Procedures Institute (NPI) Joint Exam and Injections is organized by National Procedures Institute (NPI) and will be held from Dec 06 - 07, 2018 at Omni Austin Hotel at Southpark, Austin, Texas, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16.00 AMA PRA Category 1 credits and AAFP Prescribed Credits.

Joint Exam and Injections Course Description:
This CME course represents an intensive, evidence-based review of examination and treatment techniques for musculoskeletal problems encountered in daily practice. Numerous studies demonstrate that more than 20 percent of all visits to primary care providers deal with these complaints. The pertinent history and physical examination techniques are reviewed. The functional anatomy of the joint, as well as common mechanisms of injuries, is stressed. After an initial review of the basics of clinical examination and a general approach to the evaluation and treatment of injuries are completed, a broad review of the benefits of joint aspiration and injection will occur. Why use a shotgun approach with medications that affect the entire body when a focused injection can take care of the problem?

To enhance the educational experience, it is recommended that participants attend this course in comfortable attire so that you will be able to get supervised practice experience in the examination techniques pertinent to every joint. A case-based scenario approach is used to review the most common injuries including running injuries. More than 75 percent of the 2-day course involves interactive sessions. In the afternoon, each session has extensive practice times with joint models to review and practice common aspiration and injection techniques. Coding for the diagnoses is also included throughout the course. CPT codes for the different aspiration and injection techniques are reviewed, as well as other issues for coding and reimbursement are discussed.

Learning Objectives :
By the end of this activity, the participant should be better able to:
• Identify the anatomy and function of the joints most commonly presenting in primary care offices with injuries or dysfunction.
• Utilize specific physical diagnosis tests to evaluate each joint using evidence-based medicine guidelines.
• Identify common mechanisms of injuries and the pathology that can lead to injury or dysfunction.
• Choose imaging techniques used for evaluation of the joints discussed.
• Perform exam techniques by practicing them in a supervised setting.
• Perform joint aspirations and injections by practicing using joint models.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
