Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits (May 15, 2019)
May 15, 2019 | CME 6.00 | USD $229 | Arlington, Texas
Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 15, 2019 at Sheraton Arlington Hotel, Arlington, Texas, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a amximum of 6.0 CCUs. Target Audience : • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Social Workers • Speech-Language Pathologists • Certified Brain Injury Specialists • Recreational Therapists Course Description: Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion. In this one-day seminar, participants will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the course are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Course content will also include patient-focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to utilize by treating practitioners. Course Objectives: • Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to behavioral control. • Characterize the neurophysiology of memory and effect of fear/anger upon new learning and memory. • Analyze the effect of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries upon cognitive centers. • Connect neurotransmitters with the communication system within the brain. • Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement and accuracy in therapy. • Recommend simple neuroanatomy-based techniques to rapidly de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers. • Assess neuro-behavioral barriers that impact new learning.

Nov 15, 2019 | CE 7.00 | USD $299 | Arlington, Texas
Contemporary Endodontics Starting Today Course is organized by Ultradent Products, Inc. and will be held on Nov 15, 2019 at Hilton Arlington, Arlington, Texas, 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 Hours. 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. The main goal of this comprehensive hands-on course is to take the attendee through all the aspects needed to take the practice to the next level by utilizing a simple and efficient endodontic technique, presenting a new instrumentation system based on the safety of reciprocation allied to the efficiency of rotary movement. In a few hours, the attendee will gain practical skills that can be immediately incorporated into the office. Objectives: • Determine the benefits and limitations of reciprocation and rotation • Comprehend the importance of file design and how this aspect can improve instrumentation results • Determine the working length electronically • Master an intuitive 2-file instrumentation technique, taking advantage of the two different kinematics • Perform an outstanding cleaning using ultrasonification • Understand the application of MTA repair cement • Accomplish an effective single-cone obturation technique Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
