ABIM MOC II - How to Receive Credit Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 4.5 MOC II points in Medical Knowledge in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Learning & Performance Objectives: The Rheumatology Update & Highlights from ACR 2019 course is a review of rheumatic diseases at the intersection of new clinical knowledge and its translation into practice. This course will also explore areas of leading-edge science that are likely to prove important to the treatment and management of patients with rheumatic disease. Rheumatology is a fast-moving field in which new discoveries are continually being made and new treatment modalities developed. Because the basic and clinical scientific underpinnings of rheumatologic practice frequently and directly come to impact therapy, lectures and year-in-review updates will provide participants with the most recent information of the full-range of rheumatologic conditions. In addition, panel discussions and optional meet-the-professor luncheon will provide small group discussion for participants to raise questions and participate in dialogue with the course instructors and clinical experts. A partnership between primary care physicians and rheumatologists plays a critical role in identifying situations that require immediate attention and support optimal long-term patient management. This half-day course is designed to provide family practice physicians or those that provide primary care to their patients with up-to-date information on how to recognize, diagnose, treat, and follow common rheumatologic conditions. A comprehensive presentation on new treatment approaches in rheumatic diseases will open the course, then, expert faculty will provide participants with evidence-based guidance in the treatment and management of rheumatic conditions, arthritis, and tissue degenerations. Lectures will provide attendees with the latest information in arthritis, lupus and other rheumatologic conditions; panel discussions will allow participants to raise questions and participate in dialogue with course faculty. The intended result of this activity is increased knowledge, competence and performance towards the evaluation and management of the rheumatologic disorders. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Recognize the clinical benefits, and manage risks of protein based biologic therapies for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis • Develop strategies to determine when to introduce small-molecule signal transduction inhibitors into treatment • Recognize the presence of co-morbidities associated with rheumatic diseases and account for these in treatment • Evaluate new and future treatment approaches for lupus management • Consider the roles of specific immune cells, genetics and cytokines in the pathogenesis of lupus, and the potential to exploit these factors as therapeutic targets • Recognize the signs and symptoms of primary vasculitis of the CNS and develop strategies to both diagnose and initiate treatment • Discuss the latest advances in treatment approaches and therapeutic options for patients with rheumatic diseases • Recognize differences in crystal-induced arthropathies and the implications for treatment of Gout and CPPD (pseudogout) • Create treatment plans for patients with rheumatoid arthritis that aligns with the most current evidence-based guidelines • Assess the impact of psoriatic arthritis and anticipate the potential need to switch or augment therapy Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Evaluation and Management of Head & Neck Lymphedema is organized by Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy and will be held from Feb 21 - 23, 2020 at Mercy Clinic Orthopedic Surgery - Clayton-Clarkson, St Louis, Missouri, United States of America. Accreditation: CEUs for CLTs are provided through the FPTA, AOTA, and NCBTMB. CEUs for SLPs are provided through ASHA (2.0 CEUs - Introductory level, Professional area). Overview: Head and Neck Lymphedema (HNL) is a devastating condition that frequently follows surgery or radiation for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Not only can HNL affect the patient’s communication and swallowing function, but in severe cases can affect respiration, vision, and even ambulation, not to mention the frustration and embarrassment that accompanies this disfiguring condition. However, with proper treatment, HNL can typically be reduced to a manageable level. This 2 ½ day workshop will provide the academic foundation and practical application for the therapist to successfully implement basic techniques to reduce the edema that can create such devastating impairments. Therapists will learn about: (1) the basic lymphatic system; (2) evaluation and measurement; (3) Manual Lymph drainage (MLD); (4) compression wraps and garments; (5) documentation and billing Course Objectives: • Explain the basic anatomy and physiology of the head and neck lymphatic and venous systems and identify the relevant structures involved in lymphatic drainage. • Identify the most common forms of head and neck cancer, their treatments and side effects, and their functional impact on communication and swallowing. • List the various causes of edema in the head and neck and their appropriate treatments. • Differentiate between typical post-operative edema and lymphedema involving the head and neck. • Describe the effects of head and neck lymphedema on communication, swallowing, and psychosocial processes. • Demonstrate basic proficiency in assessment and development of a basic treatment plan for a patient with head and neck edema. • Demonstrate proficiency in basic techniques to reduce edema of the head and neck in order to improve communication and swallowing. These include: • Manual Lymph Drainage techniques • Compression wrapping for the head and neck • Kinesiotaping of the head and neck • Evaluate a written case study for a patient with head and neck lymphedema and perform an appropriate treatment session for that patient.

Disarming the Suicidal Mind: Evidence-Based Assessment and Intervention is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 26, 2020 at Sheraton Westport Chalet Hotel St. Louis, St Louis, Missouri, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 CEUS / 6.0 CE / 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Psychiatrists • Counselors • Teachers • School Administrators • Marriage and Family Therapists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Nurses • Other Mental Health Professionals Description: From Triage to Tomorrow Suicide deaths have increased dramatically in recent years to 40,000 Americans annually, a leap that has been attributed variously to the Great Recession, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and access to guns and prescription pain killers – but what about medical error? Thirty-nine percent of suicide completers have been seen in an ER within the past year (many for mental health complaints and self-harm), while 59% of ER patients with injuries from deliberate self-harm do not receive a psychiatric assessment. Despite these trends, graduate training in assessment of imminent self-harm is often limited, offering little practical experience in counseling labs due to intake policies designed to avoid liability. This course offers a revealing look inside the complex and rapidly expanding knowledge-base concerning the epidemiology of suicide and self-harm, while exploring the most effective measures you can take to save your patients’ lives. Learn to recognize risk factors associated with suicide attempts, as well as long-term and imminent warning signs, and accurately assess self-harm and suicide risk. Discover evidence-based interventions and explore the challenges of treatment across populations, including patients with addictive behaviors. Finally, we will deconstruct the emergency mental health protocols of today and identify common thinking errors leading to diagnostic and intervention mistakes that actually worsen crisis situations. Objectives: • Analyze the rapidly expanding knowledge-base concerning the epidemiology of suicide and self-harm as it relates to clinical practice. • Recognize risk factors associated with suicide attempts, as well as long-term and imminent warning signs to improve client level of functioning. • Articulate common assessment and clinical intervention errors that can be lethal. • Identify ethical issues related to suicidal assessment and involuntary psychiatric commitment. • Implement comprehensive assessment/intervention strategies to put to practical use in session. • Overcome clinical challenges with suicidal clients to improve treatment outcomes.
