Until the conference
EKG Boot Camp
This workshop will focus on the high risk EKG that you can’t afford to miss. We will also cover five things you should look for on every EKG of a syncope/palpitations patient and document on their chart. Every participant will also receive an “MI Window” to use in class and take home to use in their clinic while reading EKGs. Practitioners at all levels of EKG interpretation will benefit from this course.
This workshop is meant for the PA who wishes to gain new experience with joint injections or for the PA who needs to refresh joint injection techniques. Experienced orthopedic PA, Eric Glassman, will provide an overview of types of injection materials, including the efficacy of each type for various orthopedic conditions. Pearls and pitfalls of joint injections will be reviewed and hands-on practice with anatomical models will allow the participant to progress through various types of common injections used in primary care, rheumatology and orthopedics.
Managing Dental Emergencies Workshop
Dental pain is a common symptom that PAs encounter in daily practice, and dental emergencies can be difficult to manage. This workshop will review methods and techniques that can be used at bedside for dental local anesthesia, as well as tools and innovations available for use by PAs in managing dental pain.
ACLS & BLS Recertification
Take your ACLS Recertification with fellow PAs in a fun, interactive course. Prior certification is required. Participants may select ACLS only or ACLS and BLS recertification for a low additional fee. Note: This course will be up to 6 hours long, so those who wish to attend the ACLS workshop will not be able to attend session 2 workshops on Thursday.
Current, New, and Emerging Contraception Roundtable Discussion
Renowned specialist in Women’s Health, Dr. Anita Nelson, will be presenting in a NEW roundtable, small group discussion format in which participants will first learn about what is current, what is new, and what is coming down the line in contraceptive health. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss difficult cases with an expert in the field, submitting questions in advance and also being able to bring questions and cases to the discussion. Seating is limited to ensure a small group, interactive experience for each attendee.
