Therapeutic Strategies for Degenerative Joint Disease: Overcoming Pain and Improving Function is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 27, 2019 at Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.30 contact hours. Target Audience : • Physical Therapists • Occupational Therapists • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Orthopedic Nurses • Physician Assistants • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Physical Therapist Assistants • Athletic Trainers • Exercise Physiologists • Personal Trainers Course Description : What is the one thing you hear from every client whose life you touch? The desire to remain independent and enjoy a quality life with family and friends. We see our clients working longer, with industry seeking our assistance to manage an aging workforce. We see children experiencing sports related arthritic changes in their teen years, based on MRI results. Our lifestyles have changed – with more convenience foods, a lack of exercise and sedentary work environments. The result is earlier degenerative joint changes, disability, and pain. However, evidence shows no predictive factors based on diagnostic test results to distinguish the severity of degenerative joint conditions as they link to quality of life or function. Grant me your time and learn the keys to effectively managing these clients through targeted exercise intervention, weight management, and aerobic capacity. Important information will be highlighted through case studies, demonstrations, mock patient presentations, and analysis of the latest coming from research studies that should guide your treatment decision. I will take you through the assessment process, detailing the key steps of the pathological changes, and evaluation techniques and concepts, specifically including skills to evaluate and treat the degenerative joint. We will delve into both non-operative and surgical interventions currently used to treat DJD patients, as well as the latest rehabilitation protocols so that you can return your own clients to active once again! Objectives: • Summarize the commonly-experienced condition of the degenerative joint disease. • Explain focused history taking techniques and examination methods to create diagnostic skills for evaluation of upper and lower extremity degenerative joints. • Analyze the decision-making processes regarding conservative and surgical treatment options for patients with degenerative joints. • Evaluate the methods most effective to educate patients regarding the arthritic process, treatment options, recovery steps, and long-term expectations. • Compare the recovery and rehabilitation stages to best counsel patients. • Design a treatment program for acute as well as outpatient clients.

Cardiac and Respiratory Complexities: Quickly Differentiate to Take Rapid Action is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Apr 26, 2019 at Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh/Crabtree Valley, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours. Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: You are assessing the patient who just returned from endoscopy following a foreign body removal. The patient is complaining of his throat itching. On assessment, his vital signs are normal, but he appears anxious. Is this normal following the procedure? Do you put him on a cardiac monitor? Should you call a rapid response? We have all been faced with the clinical dilemma when our patient has rapidly progressing dyspnea, tachypnea, fever, cough, and chest pain. What is happening? Distinguishing between heart failure, pneumonia, and ARDS can be difficult. Did you know that COPD could mask a pulmonary embolism? When your patient is wheezing, do you make the assumption it is asthma? Or could the presentation be caused by heart failure or an allergic reaction? Attending this conference will provide you with the confidence to recognize early and identify appropriate interventions to prevent further deterioration. We will discuss when non-invasive ventilation devices should - and should not - be used. If you are still struggling with blood gases, don't let blood gases intimidate you!

Internal Family Systems Therapy: Step-by-Step Procedures for Healing Traumatic Wounds and Alleviating Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Addiction and More - Raleigh
May 15, 2019 | CME 6.25 | USD $229.99 | Raleigh, North Carolina
Internal Family Systems Therapy: Step-by-Step Procedures for Healing Traumatic Wounds and Alleviating Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Addiction and More is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 15, 2019 at Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 clock hours of continuing education. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Addiction Counselors • Marriage and Family Therapists • Therapists • Other Professionals Who Work within the Mental Health Fields Course Description: After decades of clinical innovation and recent scientific research, the empirically validated Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been shown to be effective at improving clients’ general functioning and well-being. This effective model provides clinicians with procedures for helping clients with the most challenging mental health profiles to heal the wounded, burdened, and traumatized parts of their systems. The IFS model provides a compassionate, respectful, non-pathologizing approach to understanding the organization and functioning of the human psyche. The transformative IFS approach embraces and celebrates the natural multiplicity of the mind. Its assumption that every part of the system has good intention and valuable resources allows clinicians to approach even the most troubling of “symptoms” with compassion and respect. IFS offers therapists a powerful and effective set of tools for empowering clients with a wide range of clinical profiles to heal the wounded and burdened parts of their internal systems, resulting in: • a way to enter clients’ inner ecology without the overemphasis on containment and stabilization • symptom reduction and improved functioning for clients • deep self-healing within even the most troubled clients IFS is a powerful treatment modality. Once you experience it, you will want to incorporate it into your practice. Through instruction, video demonstration, and experiential exercises, Alexia D. Rothman, Ph.D., Certified IFS therapist and college of Dr. Richard Schwartz (founder of IFS) will show you step-by-step how to apply the most effective, empirically validated IFS interventions to help your clients connect with and understand their conflicting parts to facilitate deep, lasting healing. Course Objectives: • Present the origins and development of the Internal Family Systems Model, including empirical support for the model and the current status of research using IFS to treat posttraumatic stress disorder. • Provide an in-depth overview of IFS theory, basic principles, assumptions of the model and its treatment implications. • Describe the three major components of the psyche as outlined by IFS (parts, burdens, and the Self) including the characteristics of and assumptions regarding each component as they relate to clinical practice. • Discuss the goals of IFS therapy and case conceptualization through an IFS lens. • Provide a grounding in IFS procedures and techniques that can be implemented immediately in clinical and personal work, including the steps for facilitating the development of Self-Part relationships. • Summarize the steps of healing and unburdening wounded parts of the system in session.

Sep 20, 2019 | CE 7.00 | USD $299 | Raleigh, North Carolina
Streamlining Your Root Canal Treatments is organized by Ultradent Products, Inc. and will be held on Sep 20, 2019 at Embassy Suites by Hilton Raleigh Durham Airport Brier Creek, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dentist and Team Members. This CE Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7 CE Credits. Overview: Proper cleaning and shaping of the canal space is a prerequisite for achieving clinical success in endodontics. Studies have shown that the best movement to be applied in endodontic instruments is Roane’s Balanced Force technique. The engine-driven Balanced Force, or asymmetric reciprocating motion, has recently been applied to specifically designed nickel-titanium instruments, reducing the risk of fracture due to the accumulation of metal fatigue, which is the leading limitation of rotary nickel-titanium instruments. Though three times safer than the rotary movement, reciprocation alone has a downside of debris accumulation inside the canal. Objectives: • The benefits and limitations of reciprocation and rotation • The importance of file design and how this aspect can improve the instrumentation results • How to determine the working length electronically • An intuitive 2-file instrumentation technique, taking advantage of the two different kinematics • How to perform a superior cleaning using ultrasonification • The application of MTA repair cement • How to accomplish an effective single-cone obturation technique Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
