Jun 21 - 23, 2018 | CME 27.00 | USD $950 | Psychiatry
Psychiatry Board Review 2018 is organized by Mayo Clinic and will be held during Jun 21 - 23, 2018 at InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, Chicago, Illinois, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is psychiatrists (including those who are graduating and recertifying), as well as psychiatry-specific advanced practice providers (NPs/PAs/CNSs/RNs). This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 27 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Course Description: The Psychiatry Board Review course is unlike any other psychiatry board review course. It is aimed at graduating residents and psychiatrists who are re-certifying for their American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) boards – as well as psychiatrists looking to increase their overall fund of knowledge. Unlike question banks and online topic reviews, this course intentionally integrates self-assessments, focused lectures, and repeated quizzes – the most powerful tool for increasing knowledge. It applies the best in education science to the processes of mastering board content and draws on the considerable depth of Mayo Clinic faculty in both psychiatry and neurology. Course Objectives: Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to: • Articulate evidence-based treatment strategies for common and rare psychiatric illnesses. • Identify areas of relative knowledge deficit relative to a peer group of psychiatrists. • Use clinical reasoning and judgment to safety and effectively make clinical decisions based on best medical evidence. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Functional Mechanics of the Lumbopelvic Region and Lower Extremity is organized by Healthclick and will be held during Jun 23 - 24, 2018 at Vital Rehabilitation, Chicago, Illinois, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 hours of CME credit. Course Description : This two-day intermediate course provides you with the information and skills necessary to analyze the functional anatomy and mechanics of the lumbar spine and lower kinetic chain. Evidence-based research and up-to-date clinically-relevant techniques are presented. Extensive laboratory sessions focus on differential diagnosis to rule out lumbar stenosis, lumbar facet dysfunction, lumbar strain, lumbar disc herniation, hip bursitis, gluteal tendinitis, piriformis syndrome, ITB Friction Syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar tendinitis, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis as well as posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction. The manual therapy skills practiced will assist with promoting normal function while decreasing the potential risk of further injury. Differential diagnosis laboratory sessions, along with key examination techniques to analyze gait and functional mobility, will provide the essential skills needed to identify altered movement patterns within the ankle, knee, hip and lumbar spine. This approach demonstrates the importance of understanding of how synergistic movement is necessary within the lumbar spine and lower extremities to maintain functional, healthy movement patterns and to avoid compensatory motions that can contribute to long term injury. The key to this course is a systematic approach to examination of lumbar spine and lower extremity dysfunction. You will be presented with the tools necessary to approach dysfunction not only as an independent joint or musculoskeletal issue, but also as a possible contributor of a problem within the larger scope of the lumbar spine and lower kinetic chain. At the conclusion of the course, clinicians will understand how to perform a movement examination and apply critical thinking utilizing objective measurement tools to rule out specific dysfunction coming from the lumbar spine, hip and/or lower extremity regions. Critical results analysis will enable the clinician to develop progressive rehab programs to include manual therapy and specific exercise programs to promote optimal function. You will be able to maximize your therapy sessions by identifying the true mechanisms of injury and developing a comprehensive program that encompasses the synergistic movement patterns of the lumbar spine and lower kinetic chain to promote optimal function. Conference Objectives: • Identify anatomical structures and normal biomechanical motion of the hip, lumbar spine and lower quarter. • Apply etiological and physiological concepts as they pertain to the hip, lower quarter and lumbar spine function, while recognizing signs and symptoms associated with various conditions. • Implement a systematic approach to gait assessment and describe common impairments throughout the lower kinetic chain that can lead to movement dysfunction. • Develop and integrate an accurate treatment classification category into a comprehensive program for treatment of lumbopelvic disorders. • Perform a differential diagnosis examination to rule out: lumbar stenosis, lumbar facet dysfunction, lumbar strain, lumbar disc herniation, hip bursitis, gluteal tendinitis, piriformis syndrome, ITB Friction Syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar tendinitis, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction. • Plan and implement an evidence-based assessment for the lumbopelvic region and correlating structures based on a biomechanical assessment of the lower extremity and trunk. • Justify and perform specific mobilizations to the lumbar spine and lower quarter. • Develop a systematic approach that incorporates clinical reasoning skills and evidence-based research when analyzing the results from a movement analysis examination as it pertains to lower extremity and lumbar dysfunction. • Develop progressive exercise programs to decrease pain and promote biomechanically optimal motion within the lumbar spine and lower quarter. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
