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 from 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 the 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. 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 Outcomes: • 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: • 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.

5th Annual Updates from ASH 2019: Practice Changing Abstracts is organized by Meeting Achievements, LLC and will be held on Feb 28, 2020 at InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, Chicago, Illinois, United States of America. Target Audience: This activity has been designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of hematologic cancers. Accreditation: Credit Designation Statement The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 3.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Description: Patients in medically underserved communities have limited access to subspecialty care. Community-based oncologists are well positioned to provide initial care for these patients, but often do not have the knowledge and confidence to manage difficult cases. According to the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment, between 2006 and 2008, the City of Chicago experienced an annual average adjusted cancer mortality rate of 194.2 deaths per 100,000 individuals. Cancer mortality has decreased over the past decade in Cook County; the same trend is apparent both statewide and nationwide. Although both trends are decreasing, Cook County cancer related mortality is greater than the national average deaths per 100,000 individuals. Also, city of Chicago cancer mortality rates are higher than regional, state, and national cancer death rates. University experts in hematological cancers agree that we need to join our regional cancer community to lower our county and state mortality rate. Also, many local health professionals do not have the time or resources available to attend the annual updates from ASH 2018 conference where the latest scientific and clinical research in blood cancers is discussed, so they need a venue in which they can learn about these important updates. Learning Objectives: • Discuss how comprehension of biology of leukemias has influenced treatment approaches; • Describe next generation improvements in CAR T-cell therapies that can improve patient outcomes; • Identify methods for integrating therapeutic advances into practice to improve current myeloma patient care; • List current best practice in first and second line therapies for lymphoid malignancies; • Name new technologies for the treatment of hemophilia; • Analyze how new scientific insights are informing diagnosis and treatment of myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms.

With the average treatment cost of $600 - $1,800 per patient depending upon indications aesthetically or medically, it allows for the physician to realize additional cash revenues within their practice with little or no capital expenditure. Empire Medical's Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Training is the perfect complement to other aesthetic injectible procedures (i.e. Botox/Dermal Fillers) and can be easily incorporated into any type of medical or aesthetic practice.

These platelets when activated release adhesive glycoproteins (fibrin, fibronectin, and vitronectin) and various growth factors forming a fibrin mesh under the tissue. Program Overview: The Platelet Rich Plasma course will review all of the indications for the use of PRP for all aesthetic, medical, pain management, and alopecia indications. This evidence based course allows for you to understand and fully integrate this popular procedure within your practice. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to: • Identify appropriate candidates for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections based on medical and/or aesthetic need determined by evidence-based protocols to optimize outcomes. • Describe the various standards of care to safely administer secondary uses of Autologous PRP injections for medical pain management. • Apply proper injection technique of PRP to safely administer the product, minimize complications and provide optimal patient outcomes.
