Feb 22 - 23, 2019 | CME 11.50 | USD $475 | Phoenix, Arizona
Mayo Clinic 4th Annual Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Course 2019 is organized by Mayo Clinic and will be held from Feb 22 - 23, 2019 at Mayo Clinic Franke Education Center, Phoenix, Arizona, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Physicians, Anesthesiologists, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, CRNA's, Dieticians and Allied Health Professionals. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Course Description: Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care. Evidence-based medicine is employed to optimize the patient’s pre-, intra-, and post-operative course promoting early recovery while post-op complications and costs are reduced. We also focus on multi-modality pain management which allows for a reduction in postoperative opioid use. This proactive approach is comprised of data-driven, proven interventions: “Post-op recovery starts in pre-op.” New this year, a 3-hour opioid session that directly addresses how the team caring for the surgical patient can minimize post-operative pain and the need for opiate prescriptions. Course Highlights: • Enhanced recovery starts with a clearly defined preoperative preparation that involves the spectrum of health care team members, including the patient. • Intraoperative approaches have the entire scope of the patient’s care in mind including post-op recovery – multimodality pain control, pre-emption of nausea, and fluid management to minimize post-op ileus. • The opioid epidemic is a major national health care crisis. The course has added a session that directly addresses how the team caring for the surgical patient can minimize post-operative pain and the need for opiate prescriptions. • Post-op order sets and team care optimize patient recovery, convey the experience of accumulated knowledge and minimize complications and hospital stay. Learning Objectives: Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to: Surgeons: • Recognize the science and evidence supporting best practices in Enhanced Recovery to optimize their patient outcomes. • Reduce reliance on post-operative narcotics by using multi-modality pain management strategies Anesthesiologists and CRNAs: • Describe how intraoperative interventions regarding fluids, PONV prophylaxis, pain management, etc., can continue to affect patient outcomes in the post-operative period. Nurses: • Interpret the science and evidence behind ERAS protocol recommendations and improve ERAS protocol compliance. Hospital Administrators: • Recognize their role in facilitating the logistics of bringing together multidisciplinary teams that will improve patient outcomes and reduce costs

Hours: 15 Hours, 1.5 CEUs Prerequisite: Basic Cranio Facial (available online) Who Attends: Physical Therapists Description: This seminar will primarily be focused on displacement of the intra-articular disc of the TMJ, but will also cover the role of the subcranial spine in the causation of craniofacial pain and the association between detrimental oral habits (parafunctions) and craniofacial pain. Medial and lateral disc subluxations will be carefully examined, as will disc-condyle and disc-eminence subluxations. The progression of disc subluxation and other intra-articular pathology will be demonstrated by the use of clinical examples and all disorders will be illustrated by imaging. The imaging methods used in the diagnosis and management of the TMJ will be explained; this includes transcranial radiographs and tomography, as well as MRI, used for diagnosis and clinical management of intra-articular disc displacements. The lab sessions will focus on assessment of intra-articular pathology, as well as preparations of the TMJ and subcranial spine for reduction of the intra-articular disc. Finally, participants will have the chance to practice disc reduction and subsequent stabilization of the disc in the reduced position. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar the attendee should be able to: • Explain the concept of progression of intracapsular temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc pathology as an initial stage of dysfunction. • Discuss how a medial or lateral disc can progress to an anterior disc subluxation. • Predict the effect of oral bad habits in children and adults. • Describe the process of craniomandibular parafunction (teeth grinding) as a cause of micro repetitive trauma. • Explain the loaded gliding of the TMJ with systemic joint laxity as a cause of progressive joint disc pathology and degenerative joint disease. • Apply examination and treatment techniques to soft and hard tissues of the maxillofacial region with special emphasis on proper force and direction to avoid injury. • Explain the major cause of condylar height loss and consequential facial assymmetry. • Identify the signs and symptoms of vascular irritation for the TMJ. • Apply manual and muscular techniques for disc subluxations. • Discuss the use of removable interoclusal appliances for joint stabilization.
