Jan 25 - 26, 2019 | CME 11.25 | USD $670 | New York, New York
Pediatric Psychopharmacology Update Institute is organized by American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) and will be held from Jan 25 - 26, 2019 at New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn, New York, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. AACAP’s 2019 Pediatric Psychopharmacology Update Institute: Early Treatment Intervention: When, What, and For How Long? links the latest findings on the treatment of ADHD, substance abuse, depressive disorders, irritability, suicidal/self-injurious behaviors, psychosis and schizophrenia, anxiety, and high-risk mood and psychotic disorders. Eight top child and adolescent psychiatric researchers detail their approaches to treatment of psychiatric disorders from preschool through transitional age youth with the latest psychiatric medications, discussing medication selection, effectiveness, and expected adverse events. They review the latest data that address balancing benefits and risks across this age range using first-line psychotropic medications in the treatment of youth. In addition to the known, FDA-approved treatments, the speakers describe other relevant treatments that work in conjunction with psychotropic medication. At the end of the Institute, clinicians will have thoroughly reviewed current publications on psychopharmacologic treatments across the age range, so they can discuss how efficacy, safety, and outcome data is translated into clinical practice. Educational Learning Objectives : At the conclusion of this CME activity, the participant will be able to: • Discuss the latest evidence-based psychopharmacology data that specify indication and adverse events for medical treatment for important psychiatric disorders from preschool through young adulthood with stimulant medications, second-generation antipsychotic medications, lithium, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. • List the first- and second-line psychopharmacological medication choices and dose ranges for youth who present with ADHD, substance abuse, depressive disorders, psychosis, irritability, suicidal behavior, and prodromal or are at high risk for mood and psychotic disorders. • Present information on starting and stopping medications, how long a medication needs to be tried before switching to another medication, and the methods of phasing in a new medication while withdrawing the other, especially in regards to patients at different ages. • List the barriers that militate against the successful treatment with psychiatric medications for children, adolescents, and young adults with psychiatric disorders, as well as possible solutions including those that may not require the use of medication. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Hours: 16 or 1.6 CEUs (includes 1 online hour) or 2 graduate credits Prerequisite: S1; Intro S4 Webinar is included with S4 Who Attends: Physical Therapists A biomechanical and neurophysiological approach to the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex is presented. Emphasis is placed on the functional relations within this region so as to understand pelvic girdle dysfunction. Research documentation of the anatomical and mechanical roles of the related structures is provided. Topic areas include: functional anatomy, biomechanics of the sacroiliac and pubic joints, muscular and ligament influences, select pathologies, effects of the pregnancy, labor and delivery as well as dysfunction in the form of pathomechanics and pathophysiology. Laboratory experience involves the demonstration and practice of clinical evaluation methods for assessing dysfunction in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. The evaluation process approaches the problem from both joint and muscular standpoints. Treatment of pelvic dysfunction is also multi-dimensional and therefore soft tissue and joint mobilization is offered. In addition, time is provided for an introduction to the concepts and application of techniques such as positional release, respiratory assist mobilization and muscle energy. Patient education strategies integrating therapeutic exercise with manual interventions will be presented. Methods for self mobilization and stabilization are demonstrated. Additional suggestions relating to bracing, injection or ADL may also be included in management. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the attendee should be able to: • Demonstrate knowledge as well as clinical understanding of the functional anatomy in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Practically relate the biomechanics of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex to patient evaluation and treatment • Possess knowledge of pelvic dysfunction with respect to altered joint mechanics and abnormal neuromuscular behavior • Identify the potential relationship between pain and dysfunction with consideration of the biomechanical interdependency exhibited within the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Be able to treat pelvic girdle dysfunction using various manual therapy strategies such as myofascial release, respiratory assist mobilization, joint mobilization, and neuromuscular therapy (i.e. muscle energy, PNF) • Integrate home instruction strategies with manual intervention to facilitate improvement in pelvic girdle function and assist in pain relief • Be stimulated to pursue additional reading, course work or research in the pelvic girdle system.
