Myofascial Release Therapy is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held from Feb 29 - Mar 01, 2020 at Methodist Children's Hospital, San Antonio, Texas, United States of America. Audience: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Therapy Assistants, Exercise Physiologists, and Athletic Trainers CEU Credits: 14 hours or 1.4 or 14 CEUs Course Summary: Fascia is a three-dimensional matrix of tissue that envelopes every system of the body. When fascia becomes bound down or scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, the tension adversely impacts multiple systems, especially the neuromusculoskeletal system. Symptoms may be remote from the apparent area of injury, including referred pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, nerve impingement, organ dysfunction, and abnormal sensations. Many of these clients are experiencing myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions do not appear on standard x-rays, MRIs, or examinations. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy practitioner. Myofascial dysfunction may become symptomatic from months to years post-injury. Patients often present challenging symptoms with chronic pain, which may not show typical dermotomal or myotomal patterns. It may occur at the point when the body has maximized its adaptive potential and loses the ability to compensate for abnormal tension. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Manual release of the abnormal tension is essential to manage painful restrictions and to restore mobility and function. In this lab-based course, you will learn how to differentiate between myofascial conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia, identify motion restrictions through posture screening, hands on motion testing and palpation. You will learn how to apply MFR to improve mobility, circulation, and posture, and decrease painful restrictions using this gentle manual therapy technology to achieve improved functional outcomes across the lifespan. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Describe the anatomy and function of the fascial system. • Perform a myofascial evaluation of posture and motion testing to identify motion barriers. • Discuss the mechanism for myofascial release and indications and contraindications. • Define myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia and discuss the differences between them. • Apply myofascial techniques to the spine and extremities to improve functional mobility as part of a therapeutic program. (lab) • Discuss the evidence-based research regarding the impact of the fascial system and efficacy of myofascial release.

Dear Colleagues, The Organizing Committee of the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium® welcomes you to the Best of SABCS® Houston 2020 to be held on February 29, 2020 in collaboration with the Texas Society of Clinical Oncology (TxSCO). The SABCS®, now in its 42nd year, is the premier conference for basic, translational and clinical cancer research professionals. It is well known for presenting the latest breast cancer data from all over the world. The Best of SABCS® allows professionals who unable to travel to San Antonio, as well as those who seek a concise critical review, the opportunity to hear expert multidisciplinary faculty review and place in context conference highlights, as originally presented at SABCS® 2019, in a half-day program. Attendees will learn the current advances in breast cancer research that are changing clinical practice for the benefit of patients as well as exciting translational science soon to impact breast cancer care in the near future. We would like to extend recognition and thanks to the supporters of the Best of SABCS® for understanding the importance of this education and making it possible to organize this very valuable educational activity. We encourage and look forward to your attendance; please register early to secure a place. Target Audience: These regional symposia are directed to academic and community physicians, medical residents and fellows training in oncology subspecialties, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and basic/translational researchers involved in breast cancer. Specialties include medical, surgical, gynecologic, and radiation oncology, as well as other pertinent healthcare professionals involved in breast cancer medicine. Accreditation: The Long School of Medicine designates this live activity up to a maximum of 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Learning Objectives: • Identify factors that predispose individuals and increase the risk of developing breast cancer • Describe prognostic and predictive molecular signatures and biomarkers that can identify the most appropriate treatment strategies for individuals with breast cancer. • Discuss scientific advances from the laboratory that have great potential to translate into increased knowledge of breast cancer biology and pathogenesis. • Review new results from clinical trials in all aspects of breast cancer care presented during oral, poster and educational sessions at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium®. • Discuss on results of evidence from preclinical research and clinical trials that support the rational combinations of traditional and newer pharmacologic interventions, with a focus on novel therapeutics and resistance mechanisms. • Develop appropriate individualized treatment strategies for those patients who would benefit from new treatments in all the major subtypes of breast cancer and also focus on reversing resistance to commonly used therapies. Needs Assessment: Education to improve physician understanding of the latest trial data, guidelines, and applications in clinical practice has been identified as a vehicle for closing the knowledge gap and helping to improve patient outcomes [Christian 2006]. This proposed CME symposium will address the above gaps in clinical practice/knowledge between what is known and what healthcare practitioners wish to better understand regarding the screening, diagnosis, and management of patient with BC. In addition, it will focus on identified research/presentations from SABCS® 2019 that cover these issues, including results of BC research, facilitating the rapid translation of new knowledge into better care for breast cancer patients and addressing issues such as axillary management in primary BC, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), cell cycle regulation with CDK inhibitors, genomic heterogeneity, and proteomic analysis of BC.

For other professions, this course counts as 6.0 contact hours of professional development. Please save your certificate and course outline to submit to your national, state or local agency for continuing educating credit. Course Description: Specific diagnosis within the realm of shoulder pain can be problematic. While it is unrealistic for a single test to make a pathognomonic diagnosis, there are clinical tests with varying levels of sensitivity and specificity that, when clustered together, can aid the clinician in determining proper pathology. The clinician must decide between various manual techniques, exercises, modalities and adjunctive treatment techniques. In this exciting, interactive, one–day seminar you will practice multiple specialized tests and determine how to cluster them to improve accuracy of diagnosis. Participants will have the opportunity to practice various mobilization and stabilization techniques to address limitations in range of motion and pain. Through hands–on labs and case studies, participants will be educated on current concepts in adjunctive treatment techniques, such as instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic taping and ergonomic adaptations, which can be immediately incorporated into practice. The educational level of this course is intermediate. Learning Objectives: • Review shoulder anatomy and define orthopedic pain pathologies • Identify and cluster provocative tests for the shoulder • Perform manual techniques on the shoulder and scapula • Explain concepts in adjunctive treatment techniques • Develop treatment and home exercise plans.
