The Heart in Detail is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Sep 12, 2018 at Four Points by Sheraton Nashville - Brentwood, Brentwood, Tennessee, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Cardiologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.30 contact hours. Course Description: • Did you ever wonder why your patient with a myocardial infarction will have dyspnea? • Or have a hard time explaining how beta-blockers work? • Or become confused about ejection fractions, let alone hemodynamics? If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about which blood vessel perfuses what part of the heart, or why they have an arrhythmia, or how their heart failure is causing their kidney problems, then you need to join Cathy Lockett, a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable. Designed with the bedside clinician in mind, this seminar is appropriate for all healthcare professionals wanting to improve their assessment skills, build a firm foundation of cardiac anatomy and physiology and apply these skills in daily patient care. Understanding these essential concepts will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately. Cathy's teaching style allows for an informal interactive discussion. You will leave with a systematic approach to interpreting ECGs, an understanding of common cardiac pathologies, and a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in patient care. Course Objectives: • Describe the basic electrophysiology of the heart: Electrical versus mechanical function. • Utilize the "Thumbs Technique" to determine the ventricular axis of the heart. • Review the more common cardiac arrhythmias and discuss the causes. • Define hemodynamic principles in the body. • Relate coronary artery perfusion to cardiac musculature and the conduction system. • Interpret ischemia, injury, and infarction patterns on a 12-lead ECG, 15-lead, and right-sided ECG. • Integrate new evidenced-based guidelines to treat Acute Coronary Syndrome. • Explain the process of valvular dysfunction and state treatments for aortic and mitral valve disease. • Describe heart failure and relate physical assessment findings to hemodynamic parameters in a patient with decompensated heart failure. • State the evidenced-based treatments to include medications and invasive procedures for chronic and acute heart failure. • Differentiate dilated from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Behavioral Treatment of Chronic Pain: Evidence-Based Techniques to Move People from Hurt to Hope is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Oct 08, 2018 at Four Points by Sheraton Nashville - Brentwood, Brentwood, Tennessee, United States of America. Course Description: We are in the midst of a nationwide push to treat chronic pain and address our out of control opioid prescribing. At least 1/3 of the people we treat are dealing with this condition, yet most of us are ill-prepared to address this with skill and expertise. The CDC recently published recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain, specifically highlighting behavioral treatment as an approach that should be tried before opioids are prescribed. We are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual’s lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. We need to arm ourselves with the skills needed to offer our clients evidence-based behavioral interventions that will help them live healthy and productive lives. Come to this interactive and cutting-edge training and learn creative tools and techniques to transform your practice. Learn powerful mindfulness interventions and motivational interviewing techniques to move your clients towards behavior change. Master the four pain-changing CBT tools. You will leave with the skills and confidence to provide practical and life-changing help to help people move out of chronic pain and into active, healthy, and meaningful lives. Course Objectives: • Describe how the emotional aspect of client’s pain can be more problematic than the physical aspect. • Specify the differences in risks of opioid medications use in men, women and the elderly and the related treatment implications. • Assess the psychological, physical, social, and behavioral factors that contribute to chronic pain and articulate their treatment implications. • Implement motivational interviewing techniques to motivate clients towards behavior change that reduce the symptoms of chronic pain. • Summarize the CDC recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain and communicate how that impacts clinical treatment. • Utilize mindfulness based strategies to decrease symptoms of chronic pain in clients.
Bringing Trauma-Informed Yoga into Mental Health Clinical Practice is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Oct 19, 2018 at Hilton Brentwood/Nashville Suites, Brentwood, Tennessee, United States of America. Course Description: This state-of-the-art workshop and discover yoga-based interventions to regulate the autonomic nervous system and learn exactly how to incorporate these interventions into your psychotherapy session. Join Debra Premashakti Alvis, Ph.D., RYT, for an in-depth training on the principles and practices of trauma-informed yoga, with a special focus on chair yoga postures, yogic breathing exercises, and yoga nidra, the yogic sleep. She is one of the first practitioners to combine yoga with the wisdom of neuroscience and techniques from somatic psychology into a personalized approach for bringing yoga into the session, groups, and yoga classes. The focus of this work is on regulating the client’s autonomic nervous system as the groundwork for trauma healing. Debra trained with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk’s The Trauma Center in Boston and will share transformational skills for you and your clients. Learn first-hand why organizations as diverse as the U.S. Army and the U.S prison system have embraced yoga as an evidence-based approach to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression. Through lecture, experiential exercises, video clips, and case studies, you will leave the workshop with the background and tools you need to add trauma-informed yogic interventions to whatever style of therapy you currently practice. Course Objectives: • Evaluate ways that autonomic nervous system dysregulation contributes to PTSD symptoms. • Ascertain symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder which can be decreased through a trauma-sensitive yoga practice. • Practice trauma-informed chair yoga postures for use in the individual or group psychotherapy session. • Determine the benefits of bringing yogic deep relaxation into the therapy session. • Specify yogic strategies to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression in clients. • Apply applications of chair yoga and three-part deep breathing practices into your clinical work, using scripts and practice sessions.
