Splinting the Hand, Wrist, and Elbow is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Nov 14 - 15, 2020 at First Choice Medical Group Physical Therapy, Indian Harbor Beach, Melbourne, Florida, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hourswill 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, ATs & Assistants. Description: The art of custom splinting is an often frustrating and challenging skill to master. Invariably we find our best efforts in a pile of very expensive and awkward to handle mass of materials leaving both our patients and ourselves baffled by the outcome. Taking control of the materials through understanding their properties, characteristics and “feel”, along with a strong foundation of upper extremity biomechanics and surface anatomy can quickly turn the tables in your favor. Holding true to the title, Barry has created a remarkable formula for mastering splint fabrication in an introductory environment that incorporates ample opportunity to both observe and fabricate custom splinting, all the while, sharing the dos and don’ts that can only come from 20 years of trial and error. A fun, relaxed and non-intimidating workshop developed to replace frustrated and baffled with enlightened and confident. Diagnosis and conditions covered in this workshop include fractures, arthritis, contractures, CTDs and wounds. Emphasis is placed on replicating the actual patient environment. Course handouts and labs are designed to allow immediate clinical application of splinting techniques. Objectives: • Identify the characteristics, components and “feel” of splinting materials • Demonstrate and Identify the preparation and tools needed for successful splinting. • Successfully complete the fabrication of finger, hand, wrist and forearm based splints • Identify the biomechanical and anatomical features of splint design. • Identify the indications and contraindications for splinting the upper extremity involving contractures, arthritis and CTDs • Identify the clinical guidelines for splinting including patient evaluation, education and safety

Manual Therapy and Functional Exercise for the Shoulder Complex is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Dec 05 - 06, 2020 at First Choice Medical Group Physical Therapy, Melbourne, Florida, United States of America. Target Audience: This is an intermediate level course intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and 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, ATs & Assistants. Seminar Description: Shoulder pain is extremely prevalent in the general population, being ranked as the third most common musculoskeletal complaint. This two-day hands on seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of shoulder function and its relationship to the entire upper extremity. Improve your outcomes in the clinic or training room by examining the best evidence-based manual techniques and functional exercises for conservative and post-op management of common shoulder conditions. Common pathologies, progressive non-operative and post-operative treatment involving impingement, instability, rotator cuff pathologies/tears, adhesive capsulitis, arthroplasties, and thoracic outlet syndrome will be covered with strong reference to their impact on function. Techniques covered will include joint and soft tissue mobilizations, kinetic chain strengthening, taping strategies, plyometric and athletic shoulder exercises and more. This seminar is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs of the busy clinician. The hands on course content will be grounded in evidence based treatment strategies and supported with pertinent case studies. The APP Oncology Summit offers a unique opportunity for APPs from various healthcare teams in the community to collaborate, learn from each other and national faculty, and share best practices on a range of issues related to the care of cancer patients. Objectives: • Identify relevant functional anatomy and biomechanics that directly relates to addressing the most common shoulder complex disorders. • Identify current updates on treatment strategies for common shoulder complex diagnoses. • Demonstrate manual therapy techniques addressing joint and soft tissue limitations that are appropriate for the clinical presentation of each patient. • Demonstrate application of general principles of functional exercise,stretching and taping for mobility and stability appropriate for the clinical presentation of each patient. • Identify precautions & rehabilitation considerations following common surgical procedures of the shoulder complex. • Demonstrate impairment specific functional exercise and manual therapy, properly choosing treatment techniques relative to the specific diagnoses. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
