11th Annual Advances in Heart Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation is organized by Beaumont Health and will be held on Mar 09, 2019 at Detroit Marriott Troy, Troy, Michigan, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 5.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Target audience This one-day conference will provide cardiologists, internists, physician assistants, cardiac nursing personnel, and associated allied health professionals (e.g., physiologists, physical and occupational therapists, cardiac rehabilitation personnel, dietitians, recreational directors, public health professionals, health care administrators) with an overview of recent advances in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Course Overview Recent studies have shown that arterial inflammation plays a key role in the development and progression of atherosclerosis, that acute myocardial infarctions often evolve from mild-to-moderate coronary artery stenoses, that patients who experience a fatal coronary event invariably had antecedent exposure to one or more major coronary risk factors (i.e., hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, cigarette smoking, diabetes, obesity), that angiographic findings may vastly underestimate underlying atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, and that aggressive medical management may represent a safe and effective alternative to many elective coronary revascularization procedures. Moreover, cardiorespiratory fitness appears to be one of the strongest prognostic markers in persons with and without heart disease. Collectively, these data highlight the value of lifestyle modification and contemporary pharmacotherapies in the prevention of initial and recurrent cardiovascular events. Several mechanisms may contribute to improved clinical outcomes, including partial (albeit small) anatomic regression of coronary artery stenoses, a reduced incidence of coronary inflammation, platelet aggregation, and plaque rupture, and enhanced coronary artery vasomotor function. Conference registrants will be provided with the latest information on heart disease prevention and rehabilitation by a nationally distinguished faculty to “help patients help themselves.” Objectives • Describe the healthcare needs of an aging population, the importance of rebranding traditional cardiac rehabilitation programs, and the value in reaching out to families to facilitate these objectives. • Summarize the rationale for the changes made in the most recent American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines on the management of hypertension. • Assess the strengths and limitations of traditional atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk assessment and examine their impact on blood pressure management. • Describe the changes in creatine kinase and cardiac troponin that occur with vigorous exercise and their clinical significance. • Identify potential mechanisms by which high-volume, high-intensity exercise training may increase the risk of atrial fibrillation. • Review the inherited cardiac condition where habitual vigorous exercise appears to worsen prognosis. • Clarify the pathophysiology of lipoprotein (a), an emerging novel target for therapy, and review current and future approaches to treatment. • Review the individual and collective impact of increased physical activity, proper nutrition, weight management and avoidance of tobacco products, on lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic metabolic conditions, and the emerging field of “Lifestyle Medicine”. • Summarize the evidence supporting the role of selected physical, chemical, and psychological stressors in the triggering of acute cardiovascular events, as well as the potential role of various preventive interventions, including cardioprotective medications and regular moderate-to-vigorous intensity exercise training. • Review an interesting case study pertaining to a patient with cardiovascular disease (e.g., atherosclerotic coronary artery disease and/or structural abnormalities), including the diagnostic evaluations employed, the treatment approach used, and related cardiovascular outcomes. • Discuss the cardiac and non-cardiac benefits of daily aspirin and the management of patients on varied anticoagulation therapies. • Discuss the proximate cause of acute myocardial infarction, as well as the morphology, detection, and potential management of vulnerable coronary plaque. • Review the role of vitamin and mineral supplements for the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, with specific reference to potential mechanisms of benefit and which supplements may be harmful. • Identify the role of evidence-based integrative medicine approaches in the prevention of chronic disease, and the fundamentals in guiding patients toward complementary mind/body techniques. • Explain the causes of sudden death in young athletes and the relative roles and efficacy of different screening strategies. • Identify the barriers and facilitators to adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors in medically-supervised, home-based and worksite settings.

DFA: Dynamic Foot and Ankle is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Sep 14 - 15, 2019 at The Training Room Physical Therapy, Troy, Michigan, United States of America. 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 of management for the foot and ankle. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of the anatomical and biomechanical presentation of an efficient foot and ankle which provides for a dynamically stable and mobile base of support. Each participant will explore the biomechanical and functional impact of the foot and ankle on the entire kinetic chain and examine the role of the foot and ankle as an essential component of optimal mobility, alignment, and motor control of the human system. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical impairments of the foot and ankle. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will develop advanced skills of evaluation, differentiation of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions, and implementation of an appropriate plan of care and utilization of Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. The course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyze the biomechanical difference between a normal and an efficient foot and ankle in supervised lab practice sessions and instructor guided discussions. Participants will be able to: • verbalize the difference between a “normal” and an “efficient” foot and ankle based on the presented “challenge of normal”. • identify the 6 key structural components of a “compensated supinated” foot. • identify 13 functional characteristics of an efficient vs. inefficient foot. • evaluate their lab partner’s foot and ankle using 14 function based evaluations. • develop the skill to set 10 structural and functional goals for treating the foot and ankle. • perform the appropriate manual skills to evaluate the structures and function of the foot and ankle. • perform effective treatments for the restoration of mobility and function of the foot and ankle. • synthesize the information gained through objective and subjective evaluations to create an appropriate prognosis for a lab partner. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
