Dec 06 - 08, 2019 | Credits 21.00 | Fort Worth, Texas
Return to Vitality: Circulation, Respiration is organized by American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO) and will be held from Dec 06 - 08, 2019 at UNT Health Science Center, Fort Worth, Texas, United States of America. Continuing Medical Education: 21 credits of AOA Category 1-A CME anticipated. Course Description: Vitality is something we experience on a daily basis. We see it in newborns, young children, plants and other living things, yet we have no way to measure it other than comparing it to itself: youth vs. aging, healthy vs. ill, etc. In this three-day class, attendees will explore the most current scientific research, osteopathic research and clinical practice concerning the respiratory and circulatory functions, which are vital functions and contain vital forces, or vitality. The functions interact and are interdependent, and they feed each other. For instance, over 50% of venous blood flow in the inferior vena cava is respiration dependent. According to Doppler imaging, the pulse of the inferior vena cava moves at the respiratory rate, not the heart rate. Attendees also will explore the use of “vital forces” as “activating forces” in treatment. Dr. Fulford’s idea of shock in the nervous system will be expanded to include the use of vital forces to treat the shock and expand the concept to the vascular system. Did you know shock is a codeable diagnosis? Dr. Lossing will discuss principles of Dr. Sutherland and Barral along with ideas from traditional Chinese medicine to teach attendees exactly how vitality can be palpated, used in treatment and verified. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Learn to identify and administer treatments for edema, fatigue, neuropathy, pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, and many others. Advances in the medical management of cancer have led to earlier detection, improved treatments, and increased survival rates. However, research shows that most cancer survivors experience long-term physical, psychosocial, and cognitive impairments during and following cancer treatment. Rehabilitation professionals are increasingly challenged to provide supportive cancer services that address quality of life, cancer-related fatigue, neuropathy, musculoskeletal deficits, and integumentary concerns. This interactive course will discuss the latest evidence based tools and strategies for the care of patients with diverse cancer types across the cancer continuum. Functional outcome measures and current reimbursement requirements from Medicare and private insurance companies will be addressed. Problem-based case studies and lab activities will enable participants to develop an effective therapy program for cancer survivors. Course Objectives: Upon Completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Understand the pathology and medical management of various types of cancer • Perform a thorough evaluation of the patient with cancer • Select functional outcome measures and evidence based assessment tools • Develop and progress a cancer rehabilitation plan to address cancer related side effects • Understand current reimbursement mandates of federal and private insurance companies Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Audience: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Assistants, and Speech Language Pathologists CEU Credits: 15 hours or .15 or 15 CEUs Course Summary: As clinicians treating individuals with central nervous system dysfunction, such as cerebral palsy, congenital hypotonia and other multi-system impairments, we can make advances in our clinical decision making skills by establishing hypotheses regarding the critical impairments that we observe in our assessments and be more precise in our treatment sessions. This 2-day, hands-on lab intensive seminar is designed to further enhance the ability to treat individual’s with CNS dysfunction. We will briefly review the current Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach principles and rationales that support our treatment planning and the strategies used within a treatment session. Development of your handling skills will be emphasized as a way to influence multi-system and single system impairments related to the clients’s functional outcomes. Development of specific handling skills related to in-effective posture and movement behaviors observed in the neurologically challenged client will be the primary focus of this seminar. Discussion of therapeutic intervention and the clinical decision-making process will be discussed. A combination of didactic, video examples, laboratory learning experiences and patient demonstration will ensure the integration of NDT as a foundation for intervention. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • For a given individual with a neurological impairment, demonstrate the ability to use graded sensory input to influence posture and movement • After identifying the relationship between functional limitations, multi-system impairments, and single system impairments, prioritize 3 essential elements of intervention. • For a given neurological impairment, justify a treatment strategy using at least 3 interventions discussed in this course. • For a given neurological impairment, demonstrate the ability to use sustained and intermittent touch of varying pressures with movement, joint compression, and traction. • Identify at least 3 treatment strategies/techniques that effectively address alignment, base of support, muscle activation and functional outcomes in the client with a neurological impairment.
