Sports Concussions - An Evidence Based Course Designed to Maximize Results - Burien, Washington, USA
Mar 02 - 03, 2019 | CME 15.00 | USD $450 | Burien, Washington
Sports Concussions - An Evidence Based Course Designed to Maximize Results is organized by HealthClick and will be held from Mar 02 - 03, 2019 at Highline Medical Center, Burien, Washington, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credit. Course Description : This course is a two-day advanced evidenced based course specific to Sport Related Concussion in today’s health care environment. Course attendees will be equipped with a systematic evaluation of patients who have sustained a concussion and will be provided with tools to improve patient outcomes to return an athlete safely and efficiently to play. Current evidence supports a multi-modal approach to concussion management based on clinical trajectories. These trajectories include; cervical, ocular, vestibular, post-traumatic migraine, cognitive/fatigue and anxiety/mood and when identified early can facilitate active rehabilitation and return to sport. Conference Objectives are: • Describe pathophysiology of sport related concussion and current diagnostic and management strategies employed both on the field and in the clinic. • Identify potential symptomology following concussion to include cognitive, orthopedic, neurological, physiological and psychological dysfunction. • Compare and contrast differences between special populations to include child and elite athletes in regards to concussion management. • Discuss objective testing utilized in sport related concussion to include sideline assessment tools, computerized neurocognitive testing, and specific measures for cervical, ocular, vestibular and exertional impairments. • Perform a comprehensive concussion evaluation to include cervical examination, vestibular ocular examination and exertional testing to quantify impairments commonly occurring with concussion injury. • Identify driving subtypes via clinical trajectories specific to individual patients in order to facilitate return to sport in a timely fashion when appropriate. • Compare and contrast current evidence on the role of rest versus guided active rehabilitation strategies to include decision making on initiation of return to play protocol. • Design appropriate impairment based treatment plans based on clinical trajectories and driving subtypes that are multi-modal to insure safe return to play. • Employ sport specific drills that address post concussive impairments and insure athlete is safe to return to sport and/or activity. • Identify patients that need referral to neuropsychology, neurology or possible neuro-optometry for further assistance in post concussive management. • Discuss patient and caregiver education on current evidence regarding residual effects and potential sequelae from concussion injury. • Describe current technology available for both diagnostic and intervention of sport related concussion. • Design effective home exercise program to prevent reoccurrence of symptomology and facilitate functional athletic independence. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The target audience for this medical event is for PT’s, PTA’s, OT’s and AT’s. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credit. CME : This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18.0 contact hours/1.8 ceus for New York, Illinois or District of Columbia licensed therapists. Conference Description : This two-day advanced course provides an in-depth analysis of the scientific and clinical rationale for examination and treatment of selected shoulder complex conditions. Over one-third of this course involves hands-on lab sessions utilizing case studies, clinical reasoning and problem solving skills. A special focus will be on the algorithm-based examination format for the special tests of the shoulder. Updated evidence-based information on sensitivity/specificity and likelihood ratios of the tests will be thoroughly addressed. In addition, selected mobilization techniques, rhythmic stabilization, perturbation techniques, and open and closed chain exercises will be practiced in the laboratory sessions. Discussion of evidence-based rehabilitation will include the optimum exercises for rehabilitation of the shoulder complex, shoulder taping, proprioceptive/kinesthetic training techniques and the scientific basis for plyometrics.
