Cardiovascular CT Imaging: Intensive Level II Training Course and Introduction to 3D Vascular Angiography & Stress Perfusion CT (Nov 11 - 15, 2019)
Nov 11 - 15, 2019 | CME 58.75 | USD $3600 | Norfolk, Virginia
Cardiovascular CT Imaging: Intensive Level II Training Course and Introduction to 3D Vascular Angiography & Stress Perfusion CT is organized by Cardiovascular Associates, Ltd. (CVAL) and will be held from Nov 11 - 15, 2019 at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Norfolk, Virginia, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Cardiovascular Disease Specialists, Radiologists, Fellows-in-training and Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgeons. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 58.75 CME hours. Conference Description : Multiple approaches to evaluation of cardiovascular CT studies exist with varying accuracy depending on the type of workstation, type of scanner, referral population, patient selection, and training mentor preferences. Few courses offer an algorithmic, comprehensive approach to interpretation and offer coronary cath/ IVUS, echo, and MRI correlations or review extracardiac thoracic interpretation or the application of CTA to peripheral angiography. Cardiovascular Associates and Bayview Physicians Group have joined together to design a comprehensive course to provide a unified educational program based on the standards co-developed by the ACC and SCCT. Conference Objectives are : • Operate a 3-dimensional workstation to extract pertinent information from a thoracic volume of interest (VOI), then analyze and interpret the cardiovascular findings systematically, using the VRT-MIP-MPR method, to construct a complete and accurate Cardiovascular CT Report. • Judge the quality of Cardiovascular CT studies and its relationship to cardiac CT technical factors including the advantages and disadvantages of various types of cardiovascular CT scanners: 32 slices, 64 slices, 256 slices, dual source CT, and PET-CT hybrid imaging. • Formulate an acquisition protocol for CT contrast administration, recognizing the kinetics of triphasic injection and caveats in special patient populations such as those with valvular disease, a history of adverse reactions to contrast media, intra-cardiac shunts, and high BMI. • Cite CT radiation dose reduction strategies, radiation risk measures, and published radiation dose values in comparison to other cardiac modalities, and manipulate CT scan collimation, temporal resolution, and the three fields-of-view for cardiac patients to minimize risks to the patient. • Characterize plaque density and vulnerability for individual lesions, difference between abnormal findings and image artifact, and caveats of stenosis estimation including the effect of window and level view settings. • Evaluate regional contractility, calculated estimation of ejection fraction, myocardial resting perfusion, native and mechanical valves, and pericardial disease. • Evaluate typical and complex tertiary referral studies including acute aortic syndromes, pulmonary embolism, simple congenital heart disease, post-aortic surgery studies, pre and post electrophysiologic intervention, and cardiac masses, etc. (see table of typical and tertiary cases presented). • Interpret extracardiac thoracic structures such as pleural effusions, lung nodules, lymphadenopathy, infiltrates and cite the Fleischner Society guidelines for Management of Small Pulmonary Nodules Detected on CT Scans. • Construct an appropriate workflow and staff training program, utilizing the patient SPARR (Selection, Preparation, Acquisition, Reconstruction, and Reporting) system including the appropriate integration into clinical care.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Tapping: Evidence-Based, Mind-Body Treatment Approach to the Anxiety Spectrum Disorders and Pain (Dec 04, 2019)
Dec 04, 2019 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249 | Norfolk, Virginia
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Tapping: Evidence-Based, Mind-Body Treatment Approach to the Anxiety Spectrum Disorders and Pain is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 04, 2019 at Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel, Norfolk, Virginia, United States of America. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychotherapists • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Addiction Counselors • Occupational Therapists • Case Managers • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: The anxiety spectrum exemplifies the disorders where emotions override thought. Fragmented memories get stored in the body. The Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) collapse this uncomfortable emotional and physical reactivity, freeing a path for spontaneous insights and clearer thinking. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a comprehensive mind-body treatment that desensitizes three areas: unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical reactions. EFT combines physical interventions derived from restorative (self-applied) acupressure theory with cognitive interventions. EFT is an evidence-based practice with over 100 published studies. One published study demonstrated a 24% decrease in cortisol (stress hormone) level in the EFT group. (Energypsych.org) EFT is an effective brief therapy and belongs in every therapist’s tool box. Transform your clinical excellence. Bring EFT into your practice and treat resistant problems that other methods failed. This seminar focuses on cutting-edge techniques of EFT to treat the anxiety spectrum disorders, including: Phobias • Generalized Anxiety • Social Anxiety Disorder • Panic • OCD Acute Traumatic Stress Reactions These mind-body methods are emerging into mainstream mental health, trauma treatment, coaching, employee assistance programs and sport psychology arenas as a rapid, effective, non-invasive, calming, desensitizing tool. Do not miss this opportunity to learn evidence-based techniques you can use immediately with your clients and improve treatment outcomes. Objectives: • Explain the origin and efficacy of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) including peer reviewed, published research. • Implement self-applied, light touch or tapping on acupoints to calm and rebalance the body system while thinking about disturbing upsets to create a desensitized state as measured by continuous dropping of the SUDS level. • Distinguish that EFT is a mind-body treatment that desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical discomfort. • List exploratory questions to elicit the first or worst defining event and how to treat in all manifestation in the past, present and future. • Demonstrate EFT techniques for stress, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder and panic and traumatic events. • Describe how EFT can greatly diminish OCD-frustrating compulsions and unwanted habits. • Acquire a two-prong approach to treating social anxiety: EFT and social skill building. • Describe why EFT works in conjunction with and beyond talk therapy and how it often cuts quickly through resistant problems. • Explore working with pain reduction using acupoints and psychological constructs of metaphors and emotions. • State the ethical concerns of not working outside the knowledge base and obtaining ongoing “permission” to use these methods.
