Dec 11, 2019 | CEH 6.00 | Santa Monica, California
Fighting Back Against Diseases of Devastation is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Dec 11, 2019 at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Santa Monica, Santa Monica, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEH. Description: What are diseases of devastation? How did the current opioid epidemic begin and why has it grown so aggressively? What role do pharmaceutical companies and market-based medicine play in the proliferation of opioid prescriptions? 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.

Course Description: This course would be of interest to health care providers in fields related to the musculoskeletal system, including, but not limited to, radiologists, sports medicine physicians, physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, sonographers, physician assistants, and resident and fellow trainees. The UCLA Department of Radiological Sciences, in collaboration with lead physicians from the departments of Rheumatology, Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, is proud to offer a comprehensive interdisciplinary musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound hands-on learning experience. The MSK Ultrasound Course and Hands-On Workshop will review pertinent aspects of upper and lower extremity ultrasound critical for clinical application. This weekend course will include, in addition to basic MSK ultrasound of joints, current topics such as MSK ultrasound intervention, ultrasound of peripheral nerves, ultrasound of muscle, pediatric sports ultrasound, and MSK ultrasound economics. A multidisciplinary approach will be emphasized through interaction with physicians from various subspecialties. The course also features live, split-screen video demonstrations of basic MSK ultrasound scan techniques essential for appropriate clinical application. In addition, the interactive hands-on workshop will provide ample opportunity for participants to practice techniques learned in the lectures via focused, small group training with subspecialists. Two concurrent tracks will be available (introductory and intermediate tracks), each offering a more personalized lecture and hands-on training experience tailored to the participant’s particular skill level and experience with MSK ultrasound. Introductory Track: Suggested for those participants interested in learning and developing basic MSK ultrasound scan techniques and protocol. This track is appropriate for those with limited or no prior MSK ultrasound experience. Lectures will focus on fundamentals of MSK ultrasound as it relates to scanning the main joints of the upper and lower extremity. Intermediate Track: Suggested for those participants who have a basic understanding of normal MSK ultrasound anatomy and scan techniques, and who are interested in further advancing their MSK ultrasound knowledge and refining their skills. This track is appropriate for those who may have attended a prior MSK ultrasound course, or who have some clinical experience with MSK ultrasound. Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the course, attendees should be able to: • Identify basic MSK anatomy pertinent to ultrasound • Perform basic MSK ultrasound exams of the major joints of the upper/lower extremity • Identify advantages/disadvantages of MSK ultrasound as an imaging modality • Describe both the unique and complimentary roles of ultrasound examination • Recognize transducer and required equipment selection • Describe normal findings and common pathology on ultrasound of the major joints • Recognize the main MSK ultrasound imaging pitfalls and artifacts • Perform various dynamic maneuvers during an MSK ultrasound examination • Become familiar with the spectrum of MSK ultrasound-guided interventional procedures.
