Treatment of Common Extremity Dysfunction through Mobilization is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Feb 29 - Mar 01, 2020 at Life Fitness Physical Therapy, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 16 continuing education hours. Course Description: There are few classes available where you will learn how to treat so many common extremity dysfunctions with so much success. This is a class that will change how you look at common extremity diagnoses and will help you to start treating differently on Monday morning. The focus of the class is using joint mobilization to normalize the stress on the tissues around a joint; immediately decreasing the stress on the tissues and secondary pain that this creates. This will take your understanding of extremity mobilization far beyond what you learned in school. As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Accurately explain the rationale for performing joint mobilization and its specific physiological effects • Explain and correctly demonstrate grading, oscillation techniques and sustained-hold techniques of joint mobilizations • Accurately identify the joint surface anatomy of each joint discussed in this course. • Accurately explain the application of the joint surface anatomy to the mechanics of each joint discussed in this course • Demonstrate proper extremity mobilization technique, hand placement, and body mechanics during lab scenarios Topics Covered: • Overview of surface structure and its effect on mobilization • Introduction and review of conservative and aggressive mobilization techniques with emphasis on functional application • Introduction and review of dynamic mobilization techniques • The shoulder / scapula • The elbow • The wrist and hand • The hip • The knee • The ankle and foot • Application to specific clinical situations

Overview: As the older adult population continues to increase and live longer, it is imperative that we offer high quality continuing education in the care and management of geriatric patients. Most physicians have received very little or no formal geriatrics training, despite this growing trend in the number of older adults they care for. Surveys demonstrate that physicians commonly report discomfort and dissatisfaction with providing care to the older adult. Further, studies evaluating standard quality indicators for the care of the vulnerable older adult show quite poor quality of care. Older adults with multiple co-morbidities report high rates of dissatisfaction with their health care. This activity is designed to provide practical information to clinicians and healthcare professionals who care for elderly patients. It will improve knowledge about diseases and syndromes common in the elderly and offer practical and effective guides to their management. This activity is designed to provide practical information to clinicians and healthcare professionals who care for elderly patients.

Cultural Competency & Diversity: Powerful Strategies to Improve Client Rapport & Multicultural Awareness is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 20, 2020 at Inn at The Colonnade Baltimore - a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: I was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, during an era when Canadians embraced the value of being a multicultural nation. I remember in college spending a semester studying French in Quebec City and experiencing what it is like to be a “fish out of water”. When I moved to the United States as a graduate student to study cross-cultural counseling, I had to learn how Americans think about diversity. Now, after 35 years of research, teaching, consulting, and clinical work in the U.S.A., I have a keen understanding of the challenges of providing mental health services in a multicultural and diverse society. Developing cultural competencies is a professional and ethical imperative for human service providers. When you attend this seminar, I will outline the knowledge, awareness and skills that clinicians should develop to work ethically, efficiently and effectively with people from different cultures and ethnic groups. I will help you identify: • The challenges of cultural competency for your own professional work setting (i.e. private practice, hospital units, nursing facilities, schools, colleges, etc.). • A method to map out the intersecting identities and positionalities of a helping relationship to build rapport and anticipate points of possible resistance • Empirically-validated self-assessments to evaluate your strengths, growth areas and design a professional development plan Confidence will grow as you learn to broach culture, ethnicity and race and tailor your interventions to different clients. Learn how to be more competent serving others, who are in some ways like all others, in other ways like some, and in some ways like no other. Objectives: • Apply DSM-5 cultural formulation to accurately assess cultural influences on diagnosis and treatment planning. • Review ethical standards for a culturally competent practice to inform clinical assessment and treatment. • Identify multiple intersecting identities and positionalities to build rapport and engagement with diverse clients. • Utilize clinical strategies to adapt interventions for clients from different cultural and ethnic groups. • Apply skills to overcome cultural barriers such as class, language, religion and different belief systems to improve treatment outcomes. • Increase treatment effectiveness by recognizing different cultural values and unintentional microaggressions.
