Nursing Negligence: Even If It's Not Your Fault, It Will Be Your Problem is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jun 07, 2019 at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort&Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of America. Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: Jessica attended a nursing program with stellar faculty and great internships. She had always heard, "if you don't document, you will get in trouble". No one could explain what that meant. During her orientation as a new graduate, her preceptor taught her how to document the unit requirements and reassured her that writing much more was a waste of time. Jessica never questioned otherwise. At this time in her career, Jessica was thinking… "I don't worry much about charting; the computer takes care of that. As long as I chart what my unit audits for, I can sleep soundly." 2 years later Jessica sat down quietly at the deposition table, her head hung low and she hadn't slept in months. They asked her to say and spell her name for the court reporter and she was sworn in. "Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?" If this could happen to Jessica, it could happen to you. But how did this happen? How did what Jessica charted turn into a deposition proceeding? How does this happen to any good nurse? Healthcare today is rife with litigation against nurses. There is more accountability, reliability, autonomy, and liability. The rate of nurses becoming part of lawsuits is steadily on the rise. Join Legal Nurse Consultant, Cyndi Zarbano, for this interesting and intriguing look into nursing documentation. This intense workshop will immerse you into the world of nursing from a litigious viewpoint. Learner Objectives: • Plan to use factual tactics to stay out of court. • Assess time stamping in your charting for contemporaneous patient accounts. • Explain deposition behaviors that favor your credibility. • Summarize hazards of inconsistent use of drop down boxes. • Distinguish between defense counsel that is for or against you. • Formulate habits that keep your license safe. • Analyze the chart specific to your specialty. • Contrast between poor and exceptional quality charting. • Summarize common charting mistakes and how to avoid them. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

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 for the management of the pelvic girdle. Explore the biomechanical and functional impact of the pelvis on the kinetic chain both above and below the pelvis. In the Functional Manual Therapy® (FMT) treatment approach, management of the pelvic girdle an essential aspect of patient care for the restoration of efficient mobility, alignment and motor control of the human system. Participants will be instructed to utilize a clinical reasoning framework for examination, evaluation, and treatment planning for the management of the patient with decreased function secondary to neuro-musculoskeletal impairments of the pelvic girdle. The systematic FMT® treatment approach allows for seamless transitions between evaluation and treatment of identified impairments as an ongoing process in a session-to-session (reflection-on-action) and moment-to-moment (reflection-in-action) basis. The participants will be guided through the utilization of Functional MobilizationTM for treatment of mechanical dysfunctions including joints, soft tissues, visceral and neurovascular structures. Functional MobilizationTM is a dynamic, three-dimensional treatment strategy which utilizes active, resisted and/or passive movements to specifically mobilize mechanical restrictions. FMT® is rooted in the principles of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), which is the foundation for the manual handling skills which will be instructed for the management of the neuromuscular function impairments (decreased efficiency of muscular initiation, strength and endurance) and motor control deficits. Additionally, participants will be trained to utilize observation of gait as an essential component of examination/evaluation and re-evaluation. Course Objectives: Participants will develop an understanding of: • The biomechanical and functional relationship of the pelvis to the trunk and extremities. • The 8 specific biomechanical motions of the innominate. • The specific functional and accessory motions of the sacrum in relationship to L5 and in relationship to each innominate. • The specific functional and accessory motions of coccyx, and implications on kinetic chain and whole body function. • Structural and functional goals for treating the pelvic girdle. Participants will develop the hands on skills to: • Palpate and evaluate the mechanical capacity of the coccyx, sacrum, innominate, L5, hip and surrounding soft tissues, neurovascular structures and viscera. • Assess the neuromuscular function and motor control of the lumbo-pelvic region. • Utilize advanced manual therapy treatment skills of FMT to enhance function of the pelvic girdle. • Integrate immediate neuromuscular re-education and motor control training following treatment of mechanical capacity. Participants will develop the ability to: • Link the information gathered through objective evaluation with structural and functional deficits observed in the patient to create rational explanations of the impact of identified dysfunctions with patient reported complaints. • Synthesize the information gained through objective and subjective evaluations with the goal of treating towards a more efficient pelvic girdle structure and function to create a realistic prognosis for each patient. • Utilize patient education and novel concepts for home exercise programs to empower patients to help themselves. • Correlate current literature related to treatment of the pelvic girdle.
