FM LQ: Functional Mobilization Lower Quadrant is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Nov 21 - 24, 2019 at Inova Physical Therapy Center, Fairfax, Virginia, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This approach developed and taught by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, presents the dynamic principles and procedures of Functional MobilizationTM as an evaluation and treatment component of the Functional Manual Therapy® treatment model. Functional MobilizationTM couples active and resisted movement (PNF) with soft tissue and joint mobilization to facilitate normalization of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions. The participant is trained to evaluate each movement segment through the use of PNF patterns and to combine the selective pattern into the full trunk and extremity patterns. Instruction will emphasize the treatment of both hypomobile structures and the stabilization of hypermobile segments with prolonged holds to promote activation of the core muscle’s contraction. Functional MobilizationTM dynamically integrates the principles and procedures of PNF with soft tissue and joint mobilization for each technique. Instruction will emphasize mobile and hypermobile structures, stabilize hypermobile articulations and reeducation of the motor system. Course Objectives: • Develop specific Functional Mobilization™ progression strategies to enhance functional capacity of the lower quadrant. • Develop competence in the assessment and treatment of focus areas: lumbar spine, sacrum, innominate, coccyx, hip, knee and lower limb neurovascular treatment. • Develop home exercises to augment the treatment program. • Discuss the evidence for the FMLQ material. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

NDA Simulation Workshop: Pharmaceutical Development Decisions is organized by Pharmaceutical Education and Research Institute (PERI) and will be held from Dec 02 - 03, 2019 at Pharmaceutical Education & Research Institute, Inc., Fairfax, Virginia, United States of America. Who Should Attend: • Management and Scientific Professionals • Non-clinical researchers • Members of clinical research teams • Pharmaceutical Pharmacists • Project managers and regulatory affairs personnel Description: In this highly interactive course, participants gain a better understanding of the overall pharmaceutical development and regulatory processes by forming a “company project team” working together to get their product approved with the required label and within projected timeline and budget. The initial portion of the course covers pharmaceutical development strategy, regulations, non-clinical safety, chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC), clinical pharmacology and clinical development concepts. These sessions provide the groundwork for interactive IND and NDA simulations. Benefits of Attendance: • Learn strategies to increase the effectiveness of pharmaceutical R&D. • Experience submitting an IND and NDA via an interactive simulations. • Gain a broader view of how successful drugs are developed and reviewed • Network with expert faculty and colleagues • Share experiences & challenges in the biopharmaceutical development & regulatory review process Topics: • US and Global Regulatory Affairs • Non-Clinical Research and Development • Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control • Clinical Pharmacology/Pharmacokinetics • Clinical Development Decisions • IND & NDA Simulation Workshops Objectives: • Demonstrate the key components of the drug development process • Identify the requirements for submitting global drug applications (IND/CTA and NDA/BLA/MAA) • Relate more effectively with the different functional groups within your organization to facilitate your organization’s drug development and regulatory review process • Describe the importance of effective communication between the sponsor and the FDA and other regulatory agencies Additional $35 fee applies for students who are applying for continuing education credit. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
