PNF I: The Functional Approach to Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Sep 20 - 22, 2019 at Emergency Room - Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. 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: To effectively treat as a Functional Manual Therapist®, one must address the interrelationship between the neuromuscular, soft tissue, and articular systems. PNF I offers a dynamic and functional evaluation and treatment approach to this interrelationship based on specific analysis of motor recruitment patterns and Characteristics of Neuromuscular Function. This course progresses from specific shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle, and trunk patterns to weight-bearing postures and movements. Content emphasizes the establishment of efficient motor recruitment patterns for rehabilitation of neurological and orthopedic patients and posts manipulative techniques. The material in this course is directly related to current neurophysiology of muscle function and motor control. Course Objectives: The participant will develop an understanding of the: • normal growth and development principles on which PNF has founded • neurophysiology behind the PNF principles • FMT paradigm of mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control. • application of the FMT paradigm to the practice of PNF. • FMT operational definition of Functional Efficiency and how it applies to the practice of PNF. • attributes and differences between tonic vs phasic contractions and isometric vs maintained isotonic contractions. The participant will develop the: • clinical skills to determine a patient’s neuromuscular ability to initiate functional movements with a proper feed-forward mechanism, and if necessary, select the proper PNF technique to facilitate a CoreFirst contraction. • manual skills to assess the mechanical capacity of the joint and soft tissues associated with PNF patterns and functional positions of hook lying, on-elbows, sitting, and gait. • observation skills to identify inefficiencies in the scapula and pelvic patterns as they relate to functional activities • skills to identify the presence or absence of CoreFirst® strategies in various functional movements and postures and demonstrate the necessary clinical reasoning to determine the proper PNF intervention if a dysfunctional motor strategy is identified. • clinical reasoning necessary to implement a plan of care related to the restoration of efficient mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control through the utilization of appropriate principles and techniques of PNF based on the objective and subjective findings related to a patient’s presenting symptoms. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Sclerotherapy for Physicians & Nurses is organized by Empire Medical Training (EMT), Inc and will be held on Sep 27, 2019 at Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta - Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. Description Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer with unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing EMT's training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. EMT's comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today. Target Audience This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of Health Care Practitioners involved in the care of the patients with Aesthetic requests. Credit Designation Physician Credit Medical Education Resources designates this live activity, for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Nurse Credit This CE activity provides 8.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education. Medical Education Resources is a provider of continuing nursing education by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #CEP 12299, for  contact hours. Program Overview The Sclerotherapy seminar is a combination lecture and workshop where learners will participate in didactic lectures in the morning followed by hands on training in the afternoon. Learners will understand how to use FDA approved sclerosants for various cosmetic vein indications and will also gain a proficiency in the administration as well. The purpose of the training is to help learners provide enhanced patient care to those who present themselves with various medical and cosmetic vein conditions. Procedures which have not been taught in their previous medical education. Learning Outcome • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate who will maximally benefit from the Aesthetic Procedures and will also acquire the technical skills to perform such skills to benefit patients aesthetically. • To educate physicians further concerning their base knowledge of venous anatomy and pathophysiology of medical and aesthetic venous disease. Improve their diagnostic skills concerning medical associated venous disease and improve patient outcomes. • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate for cosmetic sclerotherapy through physical examination and be able to administer treatments in a safe and efficacious manner for greater patient satisfaction. Educational Objectives After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to: • Practice procedures such as cosmetic sclerotherapy injections competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications. • Apply and understand the generally accepted protocols for the administration of the (2) FDA Approved sclerosants for aesthetic indications (i.e. unwanted arterioles, telangiectasias, and reticular veins). Learn the proper guidelines for the acquisition, patient charting, administration issues (i.e. medical intake forms, informed consents) and the corrective measures for adverse events. • Describe the mechanism of action and basic venous anatomy, differences between the product characteristics, managing expectations, and accepted after care for follow up after the sclerotherapy procedure. • Identify who is a proper candidate for the aesthetic sclerotherapy procedure, patient benefits, and education concerning the development of unwanted veins and other environmental reasons for their development. Increase patient awareness and offer enhanced patient care in relation to the management of these unwanted legs and facial veins. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
