Running Injuries - Examination, Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Interventions is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Dec 07 - 08, 2019 at Heinz Rehab Hospital, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is for PT, PTA, AT. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credits. CME : This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 contact hours/1.8 ceu’s for therapists licensed in New York, Illinois or the District of Columbia. Conference Description : This two-day intermediate level lecture and hands-on laboratory course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines for the examination, differential diagnosis and treatment interventions for running-related injuries. New research on how to accurately diagnose and treat plantar heel pain, Achilles tendinosis, Achilles tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, stress fractures and muscular strains will be reviewed. An emphasis on the utilization of video gait analysis as a key diagnostic and treatment tool will be incorporated throughout the course. Hands-on laboratory break-out sessions will focus on performing a functional biomechanical examination specific to runners, fabricating orthotic devices, and performing and interpreting selected special tests for the hip, knee and ankle with an emphasis on their application to runners. Case studies will be utilized throughout the course to illustrate key concepts. This interactive course will allow course participants to enhance their diagnostic, examination and treatment skills of injured runners. The overall course objective is to provide course participants with a thorough understanding of running biomechanics and the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines in order to effectively and efficiently enhance the quality of patient outcomes. A comprehensive course packet will include pictures, references and clinical pearls for quick reference in the clinic. Conference Objectives are : • Explain the relationship between lower extremity anatomy and physiology and running biomechanics. • Perform and independent and accurate functional runner-specific lower extremity evaluation. • Discuss normal running mechanics and apply this understanding to successfully treating injured runners. • Identify and apply the latest evidence-based approaches to evaluating and treating the following common running injuries: plantar heel pain, Achilles tendonopathy, medial tibial stress syndrome, stress fractures, chronic exertional compartment syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome and lateral hip pain. • Perform an independent assessment of a running two-dimensional video gaitanalysis with emphasis on breaking down a runner’s form from the anterior, lateral and posterior views. • Analyze and correlate biomechanical examination findings with a two-dimensional video gait analysis in order to apply evidence-based running-specific exercises to treat the runner’s biomechanical impairments. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Course is organized by Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Education Programs and will be held from Mar 16 - 17, 2020 at Geisinger Wyoming Valley, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 14 contact hours (2 days) or 7 contact hours (1 day). The target audience for this medical event is useful to physical therapists, paramedics, social workers, dietitians, respiratory therapists, speech and occupational therapists, LVNs/LPNs, and others who interact with the hospitalized trauma patient. Course description: Through instruction and advocacy, the mission of TCAR Education Programs is to expand the knowledge base and clinical reasoning skills of nurses who work with injured patients anywhere along the trauma continuum of care, particularly in the post-resuscitation phase. By partnering with trauma centers and trauma systems, TCAR Education Programs provides adult and pediatric inpatient nurses an outstanding learning experience designed to meet educational goals, improve patient outcomes, and fulfill regulatory requirements. Unlike standardized trauma programs targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) course was specifically created to meet the learning needs of INPATIENT trauma nurses. This live, 2-day educational offerings give hospital staff members the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to meet regulatory requirements and provide excellent care to this challenging patient population. The TCAR course offers emergency, perioperative, critical care, and acute care, and rehabilitation nurses the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to address the needs of the hospitalized trauma patient. TCAR covers a wide range of pathophysiologic and nursing concepts and is designed to be a broad, core-level program, rather than an advanced or specialty-specific course. Course Objectives: By the end of the class, participants will be able to: • Describe the trauma continuum of care. • Explain the biomechanics of common injuries. • Anticipate specific wounds and complications based on mechanism of injury information • Discuss the body's multisystem responses to traumatic insults • Incorporate physical assessment, imaging studies, and laboratory data to evaluate the hospitalized trauma patient • Describe appropriate medial, surgical, and nursing interventions for frequently encountered injuries
