Date Event Description
April 2, 2016 Musculoskeletal Summit: Where Orthopedics & Neurology Meet
Register   Details

Orthopedic surgeons recognize the presence of a traumatic neuropathy. There can be lack of understanding regarding competence of timing of referrals and treatment planning.

Basic understanding of Orthotic devices.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is difficult to diagnose as the symptoms may be related to peripheral neuropathy, radiculopathy or plexopathy. The electro-diagnostic studies require training and experience in the procedure to diagnose the condition. If misdiagnosed it can lead to unnecessary surgeries, painful feet or nerve abnormalities including neuromas. If the diagnosis is not made in a timely fashion, it can lead to worsening pain in the feet and loss of muscle mass in the feet and gait abnormalities.

Carpal tunnel syndromes remain a clinical diagnosis supported by electro-diagnostic study.  Conservative management is not well established and surgical indications are not clear.

Radicular pain is a very common neuromuscular complaint and it is a clinical diagnosis.  In most cases, it is not supported by abnormalities on electrophysiological test or neuroimaging.  This makes it very challenging and difficult to treat.

Current physician guidelines concerning management of traumatic neuropathy sustained in the foot and ankle recommend medical suppression of symptomatic peripheral neuritis, bracing and orthotic are of sensory and motor nerve deficits and possible surgical treatment of the nerve compromise.  However, patient treatment plans are commonly not optimized due to physician backgrounds and skillsets.


April 9 - April 10, 2016 Missouri Sleep 2016
Register   Details

Sleep disorders are common but unfortunately under diagnosed per the Institute of Medicine's report on sleep disorders in 2006. The IOM report identifies one way to close this gap is in the form of CME activities for health care providers. This activity will serve as a sleep medicine conference for health providers from the state of Missouri and surrounding states to provide an activity for clinicians to gain expertise in more effectively diagnosing and treating common sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia, and hypersomia. It will also allow for discussion and review of recent changes pertaining to the field of sleep medicine in regards to changes in requirements for accreditation by the American Academy of Sleep medicine and technical specifications and rules for sleep labs to follow while performing studies.

Another gap that has been identified is the lack of access to sleep centers and labs in especially rural areas. We will discuss other diagnostic options that can be used to identify patients with sleep disorders such as home sleep testing. This Conference will also explore new and cutting edge treatment options available for sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and insomnia.

The objective of this course is to provide the medicolegal death investigator with the necessary knowledge and technical skills to perform competent medicolegal death investigations.  The investigator will then be instructed in the proper way to disseminate the information to forensic scientists and law enforcement personnel so that a coordinated, efficient, and complete death investigation can be achieved.

At the conclusion of the course, students will be assessed as to knowledge gained.  This course emphasizes the medical aspects of death investigation and is not designed to be a homicide seminar.

Completion of this course qualifies the attendee to participate in the Master's Courses, a series of advanced death investigation conferences.
