36th Annual OB Challenges Conference is organized by MEDNAX Services, Inc. and will be held from May 16 - 18, 2019 at Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa, Glendale, Arizona, United States of America. Target Audience: • Practicing Obstetricians • Nurse Practitioners • Residents • Family Practitioners • Obstetrical Nurses • Medical Students • Certified Nurse Midwives • MFM Fellows Continuing Medical Education: The MEDNAX Center for Research, Education, Quality and Safety designates this live activity for a maximum of 20.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Continuing Nursing Education: This educational activity provides 20.0 continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours. Conference Overview: Approximately 1 in 10 babies in the US are born prematurely. Recently this number has been increasing despite a significant amount of medical resources directed at this problem. Preterm infants account for about 17% of infant deaths and surviving infants are at increased risk for lifelong disabilities. There are also still significant racial/ethnic disparities in preterm birth rates with the rate for non-Hispanic black women being almost 50% higher than in non-Hispanic white women. This conference endeavors to explore the history of preterm birth treatment and review proven effective strategies in management. In addition, we will update our audience on recent advances in preterm birth prediction, prevention and management. We will also discuss new directions and emerging strategies for the management of this persistent medical challenge. Course Objectives: The conference lectures will inform participants about the current thinking regarding many of the problems they face in their challenging obstetrical practices, and better equip them to handle problems or seek assistance from specialists. After attending this course, the registrants will be able to: • Understand the appropriate use of progestogens in preventing preterm birth. • Update on current recommendations for antenatal steroid use including periviable and late preterm use. • Learn the appropriate identification and management of the short cervix. • Understand the potential role for pessaries in preterm birth prevention. • Discuss the unique challenges of preterm birth prevention in multiples. • Introduce new management approaches such as group prenatal care. • Discuss social contributions to preterm birth including trauma and intimate partner violence. • Review interventions for improving neonatal outcomes including magnesium for neuroprotection and delayed cord clamping. • Explore how provider/staff burnout and swamping may contribute to preterm birth rates. • Examine racial disparities in preterm birth rates and identify potential strategies for improvement.

Trauma Advanced Principles is organized by AO North America and will be held from Sep 05 - 08, 2019 at Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa, Glendale, Arizona, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 27.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Building on the knowledge and skills gained through the AO Basic Principles in Fracture Management course, this Advanced Principles of Fracture Management course explores the treatment of complex fractures and fracture complications. Through didactic case-based presentations and faculty and participants’ group discussions, participants will gain expert insight into: • Complex fractures of the upper and lower extremities • Fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum • Fracture complications and polytrauma management This course also provides valuable, hands-on experiences through the opportunity to practice newly learned surgical techniques on artificial bones. Participants will use preoperative planning and the latest fixation techniques to address the treatment of malunions and nonunions. Prerequisite: The AO Basic Principles of Fracture Management course is a prerequisite for the Advanced Principles of Fracture Management course as familiarity and competence with instrumentation and techniques will be assumed. Learning Objectives: Upon completion, participants should be able to: • Apply reduction techniques in fracture management with attention to soft tissue • Assess and treat complex diaphyseal and (peri)articular fractures using advanced application techniques • Demonstrate strategies for assessing and treating open fractures and soft-tissue injuries • Initiate appropriate management for patients with pelvic injuries and polytrauma • Recognize complications and manage accordingly Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Sep 05 - 08, 2019 | CME 31.00 | USD $1600 | Glendale, Arizona
Trauma Basic Principles is organized by AO North America and will be held from Sep 05 - 08, 2019 at Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa, Glendale, Arizona, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Course Summary: This Basic Course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles. The four guiding AO principles of fracture fixation are: • Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures • Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen • Atraumatic surgical technique to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue • Early, pain-free mobilization returning the patient to function as soon as possible. The course will cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability, as applied in context, of the soft tissue injury for each limb segment’s major fracture types. This course is the foundation for the AONA curriculum, which teaches the surgeon how to manage trauma and trauma reconstruction. The goal of this course is not to advocate the treatment of all fractures by surgical fixation, but rather to help ensure that when surgery is carried out, that it is done properly based upon principles, appropriate preoperative planning, and decision making. Learning Objectives: Upon completion, participants should be able to: • Discuss the concepts of stability, their influence on bone healing, and how to apply implants to achieve appropriate stability • Plan a treatment based on assessment, imaging, classification, and decision making • Apply reduction techniques in fracture management with attention to the importance of the soft-tissue • Apply related psychomotor skills to the practical application of orthopedic implants to fractured bones • Plan the initial treatment of the polytraumatized patient Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
