KJD: Knee Junction Dilemma (KJD) is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Aug 24 - 25, 2019 at Outpatient Rehab Center: Sutter Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, Oakland, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This course is a lab intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system of management for the knee. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of anatomical and biomechanical presentation of efficient knee function, and the interdependence between knee function and healthy motions of the foot/ankle and the hip. With the recognition that the knee is greatly influenced by the motions of the entire lower extremity, the participants will be guided through functional evaluations and assessments to identify key dysfunctions of the lower extremity to better guide interventions aimed at enhancing knee function. The participants will first be guided through select interventions for the foot and ankle and the hip prior to systematically working through an extensive series of direct treatments to the knee and surrounding structures, all with a focus on restoring a more optimal state of function to the lower extremity. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function and motor control impairments of the knee. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will implement an appropriate plan of care, and utilize Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. This course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention.

The Hand, Wrist and Elbow Complex Course is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Oct 19 - 20, 2019 at Alta Bates Hand Therapy, Oakland, California, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs, ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hours will be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATC & Assistants. BOC Board of Certification, Inc. Approved Provider Conference Description: This two-day seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of hand, wrist & elbow function and their relationship to the entire upper extremity. This unique approach thoroughly examines the relationship of these structures to human performance and suggest strategies for functional improvement. Common pathologies, mechanisms of injury, and progressive pre and post-operative treatment involving fractures, RSI/CTDs, tendon/nerve lacerations, arthritis, sprains/strains and dislocations will be covered with strong reference to their impact on function. Course content includes medical screening, differential diagnosis, imaging, functional progression of treatment, splinting/casting, PAMs, pain management and the non-compliant patient. This seminar will NOT present a “protocol driven approach” to rehabilitation. Rather, the participant will learn a “framework” for physical examination that will permit rapid synthesis of findings into a “dynamic treatment plan” designed to increase patient satisfaction and outcomes. Objectives: • Demonstrate a working understanding of the biomechanical systems of the elbow, wrist and hand and relate this information to functional impairments. • Demonstrate an appropriate physical examination of the elbow and wrist. • Identify sound biologically based treatment plans for osseous and soft tissue pathologies. • Identify appropriate splints and positioning devices to improve upper extremity performance. • Identify psychosocial assessment techniques and motivational techniques designed to improve client compliance with therapy prescription.

Nov 14, 2019 | CEH 6.00 | Oakland, California
Fighting Back Against Diseases of Devastation is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Nov 14, 2019 at National Nurses United, Oakland, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEHs. Description: Of concern to registered nurses is that drug overdose is now the leading cause of injury and death in the United States - claiming 350,000 lives over the past two decades, with 47,000 deaths in 2017 alone. Twenty seven states have sued the pharmaceutical companies behind the opioid explosion. Yet, people who are in dire need of healthcare and treatment are targeted and penalized for opioid use. As opioids claim lives from nearly every gender, race, ethnicity, and community in the United States, disparate treatment and police responses to the epidemic expose deep-seated race-based fault lines in the U.S. health care and criminal justice systems. Opioid use disorder should be treated as a public health issue. By comparing the opioid crisis with similar diseases of devastation, nurses will analyze the opioid epidemic as a symptom of the outsized influence of Big Pharma in our broken, for-profit health care system. The class will conclude with discussion of systemic interventions nurses can take to heal diseases of devastation and protect nurses’ professional judgment. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Describe diseases of devastation, specifically the opioid epidemic. • Discuss the role of rising drug prices, “me too” drugs, and race in opioid treatment policy. • Compare and contrast registered nurses’ role in advocating for robust public health measures with the pharmaceutical industry’s exploitation of public health. • Explain how nurses’ advocacy for systemic public health interventions - like Medicare for All and others - can counter Big Pharma’s hold on our health care system. Note: All class times 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, additional hour available.
