Acute surgical illness and injury can occur any time, any place. This course, designed for general surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, family medicine physicians and other providers, provides current information on the management of common surgical and trauma emergencies. The course focuses on tools and guidelines for rural hospital providers and establishes a framework for regional systems of care.
The prevalence and consequences of concussion at all levels of ice hockey are concerning. Reduction of concussion risk, as well as improved concussion diagnosis and management require a collaborative effort from medicine, psychology, sport science, coaching, engineering, officiating, manufacturing, and community partners.
This quality scientific program focuses on education and generates an evidence-based action plan designed to make a difference.
This three-day multidisciplinary conference explores current state-of-the art techniques and program development to implement a blood management program in hospitals. This is a one-of-a-kind summit organized by leaders in blood management from Mayo Clinic, Hartford Hospital, Loyola University, and Cleveland Clinic, with faculty participation from all four organizations.
The course will review multiple topics in clinical neuro-ophthalmology. The first day will consist of didactic lectures by experts in neuro-ophthalmology on various topics including giant cell arteritis, nystagmus, optic nerve sheath meninigioma, pseudotumor cerebri, third nerve palsy and the treatment of diplopia. On the second day, cases of common neuro-ophthalmologic problems will be presented to our panel who will discuss their practical approach to patient evaluation and management. Problems presented will include optic neuritis, neuroretinitis, neuromyelitis optica, ischemic optic neuropathy, hereditary optic neuropathy, anisocoria, diplopia, nystagmus and myasthenia gravis. The day will also include a session on the clinical/neuro-radiologic correlation of several neuro-ophthalmologic disease processes. The third day will start with case presentations by retina experts attempting to sort out the occasionally difficult question of "Is it optic nerve or is it retina?" as a cause of visual loss. The rest of the session will consist of multiple unusual case presentations with many useful clinical pearls presented by our expert neuro-ophthalmologists. "Featuring an ABPN Approved Self-Assessment Activity"
If you're unable to attend the onsite symposium, you can participate through a webcast! The symposium webcast will feature the same leading experts in the field, who will be presenting at the onsite symposium in real time. Concussion is a major public health priority that transcends age, gender and sport. The under-reporting and recognition of concussion; and the potential for short-term catastrophic consequences and disabling long-term neurological impairment from repeated concussions has prompted the passage of legislation in many states that requires the immediate removal from play of an athlete suspected of having a concussion; mandatory concussion education of all those who intersect with an athlete; and return-to-play clearance by a qualified health care provider. This state-of-the-art symposium highlights the epidemiology of concussion in sport; the pathophysiology of concussion; sideline and outpatient clinical evaluation; standard and novel diagnostic strategies; and implementation of return-to-activity guidelines. The format includes platform lectures, small group workshops, panel discussions, and live two-way remote audio/video concussion evaluations using robotic teleconcussion technology. The faculty is comprised of renowned scientific and clinical experts in the field of concussion from Mayo Clinic and leading US academic medical centers. The intended audience includes athletic trainers, athletic directors, allied health professionals and physicians involved, or with an interest, in the evaluation and management of individuals with concussion.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS COURSE IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. THERE WILL BE NO ONSITE REGISTRATIONS TAKEN.
This program focuses on acute care of the hospitalized patient in the inpatient setting and is applicable to internists, hospitalists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and administrators from novice to experienced. The course covers everything from critical care, hospital medicine, surgery, neurology, cardiology and medical specialties. Hospital care models are transforming and nurse practitioners and physician assistants play a vital role in the care delivery of hospitalized patients. This conference focuses on providing the most up-to-date and evidence-based guidelines and treatment pathways necessary to optimally care for hospitalized patients. Three content tracks will be offered: 1) Core clinical; 2) Advanced Skills; 3) Administrative (service line development, dashboards, system planning and implementation).
The pre-conference Infectious Disease Workshop will focus on helping the NP/PA gain updated knowledge of common infectious diseases seen in the inpatient (acute care) setting and learn to assess and treat.
This three-day multidisciplinary conference explores current state-of-the –art techniques and program development to implement a blood management program in hospitals. This is a one-of-a-kind summit organized by leaders in blood management from Mayo Clinic, Hartford Hospital, Loyola University, and Cleveland Clinic, with faculty participation from all four organizations. Following the successful 2012 course, the program has been slightly expanded for 2013.
This course offers presentations and discussions on the current literature on practical use of ultrasonography, with a focus on cutting edge procedures that have a direct impact on patient care. Faculty will provide attendees with new data, procedures and techniques to advance their practice. Learn new techniques from expert faculty members using state-of-the art technology during our hands-on training session. The hands-on training session will help participants to improve their machine operation and image acquisition skills. We intend to provide participants with awareness and basic knowledge of these methods and their potential application in improving health care.
This course has been approved as an equivalent of ACCP's Ultrasonography: Fundamentals in Critical Care. Upon conclusion of the course, participants will qualify to attend ACCP's advanced courses (Focused Pleural and Vascular Ultrasound, Critical Care Echocardiography), as part of the critical care ultrasonography certificate of completion program.
