Advances in Rheumatology: What Have We Learned? - July 23, September 14, & September 22, 2016 from Jul 23, 2016 08:30 AM to Sep 22, 2016 11:00 PMLocations Vary, See Below,
In order to stay abreast of the new information and provide optimal care for patients, rheumatologists have a responsibility to review recent clinical trial data and publications. Providers often face a variety of therapeutic options and selecting and individualizing therapy for patients can be challenging. Although the data are available, it is not always clear how to best apply this information into clinical practice. Moreover, many physicians are unable to attend major medical conferences whereby the majority of this new data is presented. In an effort to address this gap a live program, Advances in Rheumatology: What Have We Learned? has been developed.

As the prevalence and severity of liver disease increases in the United States, largely due to chronic viral hepatitis and fatty liver disease, the need for education and training programs among physicians and mid-level providers has escalated. With on-going research and new pharmacological agents being tested, the SC Liver Research Consortium is uniquely positioned to bring cutting-edge information to the medical community. With a focus on Non-Alcohol Stetohepatitis (NASH), Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBS) and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) a series of one-day, interactive seminars will be offered in ten cities in 2016. Faculty for this innovative program will be comprised of clinical and research experts who practice locally. The faculty team is comprised of two physicians and one nurse practitioner or physician assistant who will provide a team-based approach to diagnosis, treatment and patient care.
12th Annual Coastal Dermatology Symposium: September 29 – October 1, 2016 from Sep 29, 2016 07:50 AM to Oct 01, 2016 12:15 PMMonterey Plaza Hotel, 400 Cannery Row, Monterey, CA 93940 ,
The Coastal Dermatology Symposium, presented annually since 2005, is designed to provide high-quality continuing medical education featuring latest updates in medical dermatology and the diagnosis and treatment of various dermatological conditions. The educational content is of interest to practicing dermatologists, dermatology residents, rheumatologists, allergists and family practice physicians, as well as nurses and physician assistants in those areas. Dermatologists and other health care professionals need comprehensive knowledge of the latest developments and techniques in diagnosing and treating skin diseases to ensure the highest standards of patient care. For the 12th Annual Coastal Dermatology Symposium, an internationally-known faculty and key thought leaders will present in-depth education and stimulate audience discussion on topics including: Acne, Rosacea, Contact Dermatitis, Atopic Dermatitis, Pediatric Dermatology, Skin Cancer, Psoriasis, Photosensitivity and Use of Sunscreens, Onychomycosis, and Dermoscopy.
Advances in Pain Neuroscience: Know Pain; Know Gain - October 5, 2016Oct 05, 2016 from 06:00 PM to 07:30 PMAmbulatory Care Building Auditorium 550 S. Jackson Street, Louisville, KY 40202,
This lecture will focus on two key elements in treating pain: education and movement. The first part of the lecture will discuss the importance of cognitions, pain and education. Current best-evidence provides strong support for PNE to positively influence pain ratings, dysfunctions, fear-avoidance, and pain catastrophization, limitations in movement, pain knowledge and healthcare utilization. The second part of the presentation will center on neuroplasticity, culminating in ever-increasing popular treatments such as mirror therapy, virtual reality, graded motor imagery and sensor motor retraining. Emerging research has tied hands-on treatment, exercise and movement to brain remapping, enhancement of endogenous mechanisms, graded exposure, cognitive restructuring of threat and more, all of which are very important in a human pain experience.

ISPCOP 2016: Tipping the Scales in 2016: A New Look at Regional Anesthesia, Neuromuscular Blockade and Opioids in the Patient with Obesity - October 24, 2016Oct 24, 2016 from 06:30 PM to 09:00 PMInterContinental Chicago, King Arthur Court, 505 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611,
General anesthesia is comprised of anesthesia, analgesia and neuromuscular blockade. Consequently, the vast majority of obese patients will receive opioids and neuromuscular blockers intraoperatively. Both opioids and neuromuscular blockers decrease the ability of the obese patient to regain adequate respiration at the end of general anesthesia and increase the risk for postoperative pulmonary complications including postoperative respiratory failure in a patient population with already impaired respiration. The focus of this symposium is to show alternatives to routine general anesthesia for the morbidly obese patient, including regional anesthesia for bariatric surgery, successful reversal of neuromuscular blockade and opioid free anesthesia.
Meeting the Challenge of Atopic Dermatitis From Infants to Adulthood - November 11, 2016 from Nov 11, 2016 06:30 PM to Nov 11, 2017 07:30 PMThe Cosmopolitan Hotel, 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard S, Las Vegas, NV ,
Atopic dermatitis (AD), also called eczema, is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disease that is associated with significant morbidity and costs to patients and their families. Clinicians need to remain up-to-date on the benefits and risks of all treatment options as well as make the appropriate selections for their patients. New and emerging developments in the pathogenesis of AD are evolving; therefore clinicians need to stay informed.
