Nursing Negligence: Even If It's Not Your Fault, It Will Be Your Problem is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 01, 2019 at Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax, Fairfax, Virginia, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours. Target Audience • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: Jessica attended a nursing program with stellar faculty and great internships. She had always heard, "if you don't document, you will get in trouble". No one could explain what that meant. During her orientation as a new graduate, her preceptor taught her how to document the unit requirements and reassured her that writing much more was a waste of time. Jessica never questioned otherwise. At this time in her career, Jessica was thinking… "I don't worry much about charting; the computer takes care of that. As long as I chart what my unit audits for, I can sleep soundly." 2 years later Jessica sat down quietly at the deposition table, her head hung low and she hadn't slept in months. They asked her to say and spell her name for the court reporter and she was sworn in. "Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?" If this could happen to Jessica, it could happen to you. But how did this happen? How did what Jessica charted turn into a deposition proceeding? How does this happen to any good nurse? Healthcare today is rife with litigation against nurses. There is more accountability, reliability, autonomy, and liability. The rate of nurses becoming part of lawsuits is steadily on the rise. Join Legal Nurse Consultant, Cyndi Zarbano, for this interesting and intriguing look into nursing documentation. This intense workshop will immerse you into the world of nursing from a litigious viewpoint. Learner Objectives: • Plan to use factual tactics to stay out of court. • Assess time stamping in your charting for contemporaneous patient accounts. • Explain deposition behaviors that favor your credibility. • Summarize hazards of inconsistent use of drop down boxes. • Distinguish between defense counsel that is for or against you. • Formulate habits that keep your license safe. • Analyze the chart specific to your specialty. • Contrast between poor and exceptional quality charting. • Summarize common charting mistakes and how to avoid them.

Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Marriage & Family Therapists • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Nurses • Other Mental Health Professionals • Probation/Parole Officers Course Description: Are you frustrated with having the same client session over and over? Perhaps you’re watching your clients struggle with addiction, anxiety, or other mental health challenges, and your attempts to empower them to make positive changes in their lives feel like going into battle. You feel like you’re working harder than your client, and you feel like they resist everything. You can make a significant, positive impact on your clients’ lives with Motivational Interviewing. Motivational interviewing (MI) has emerged over the past three decades as a leading approach for addressing a core clinical concern – motivation. When mastered, this evidence-based approach is highly effective in motivating positive change. Better still, motivational interviewing can be used regardless of diagnosis and in conjunction with other treatment approaches. Chris Wagner, Ph.D., motivational interviewing trainer and author, will teach you the skills you need to know to successfully help these clients. You’ll learn how the MI process works, how to help your clients resolve ambivalence about change, and how to effectively respond to resistance in clients. You’ll leave this seminar confident and with the strategies you need to treat your clients with depression, anxiety disorders, addictive behaviors and other clinical issues. Escape the pattern of struggling with clients, and instead evoke your clients’ own motivation to change! Objectives: • Describe how to combine person-centered and strategic components to improve clinical outcomes using MI in a positive and supportive way. • Model how the four processes and OARs skills of MI help reduce client ambivalence and empower change. • Explore ways to elicit, recognize and respond to “change talk” to improve treatment outcomes. • Develop clinical strategies for working effectively with clients who are resistant to change. • Explain ways that MI can enhance the effectiveness of other existing therapeutic approaches. • Choose how to effectively use MI to help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression and addictive behaviors.

VFM: Visceral Functional Mobilization is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Jun 28 - 30, 2019 at Inova Physical Therapy Center, Fairfax, Virginia, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 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: Visceral Functional Mobilization (VFM) is a course designed to train the participant to palpate and identify structures of the digestive system, starting from the esophagus to the rectum, including the gallbladder, liver, and sphincters. Other structures that will be introduced include the diaphragm, prostate, bladder and uterus. Research has identified that limited visceral mobility impacts skeletal mobility and the function of the involved organ. This course is designed to train the participant to identify mechanical dysfunction within the abdominal viscera and provide treatment strategies to enhance function and mobility. This course is an expansion upon and refinement of the visceral section previously taught in Functional Mobilization II (FM II). Course Objectives: • Develop anatomical palpation skills for the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive organs. • Correlate subjective and objective findings gained from directed questions, Functional Tests, Functional Movement Patterns, PNF, and palpation. • Correlate changes in visceral mobility to functional changes in the spine and extremities. • Identify appropriate FM strategies to enhance mechanical capacity of identified restrictions. • Develop a home program inclusive of self-mobilization procedures.~Discuss the clinical and published evidence for treatment of viscera. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

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.
