Honored Guest Speaker

David Viskochil, MD, PhD, is Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Medical Genetics at the University of Utah.  He has been involved in research in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) since his fellowship in Clinical Genetics when he was a key member of the laboratory that first cloned and characterized the NF1 gene.  His research has continued to focus on the molecular genetics of the neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) gene, and bone health and cancer malignancy in patients with NF1. He has served as chair of the Clinical Care Advisory Board of the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) and is a principal investigator of 5 clinical trials as well as conducting a natural history study for progressive scoliosis in pre-pubertal individuals with NF1.   He is focused on the development of novel therapies to treat patients with NF1.  As co-director of the NF Clinic at the University of Utah, Dr. Viskochil follows over 200 NF patients.  He was the recipient of a Young Investigator Award from the National Neurofibromatosis Foundation (NNFF) and a K-08 award for NF1-related research.

May 2, 2015 Neuro-inflammation in Neurologic & Psychiatric Diseases: Implications for Clinical Practice The purpose of this Continuing Medical Education Symposium is to articulate the role and mechanisms of Neuro-inflammation in various common diseases and to employ and target new treatment approaches in patients with chronic pain, dementia, schizophrenia, depression , stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease.

The target audience is neurologists, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. 

As these clinicians seek to provide state-of-the-art care, both on a diagnostic and therapeutic level to challenging patients with neuro-psychiatric disorders, many do not fully appreciate the mechanisms of pathogenesis as well as action of many therapeutic agents and interventionS as they relate to neuro-inflammation.  Due to the shift to individualized medicine, one treatment no longer fits all, requiring the need for in-depth understanding of how treatments affect the immune system, adequate assessment of preexisting conditions, risk stratification of possible treatment side-effects, and diligent follow-up to ensure continued safety after treatment initiation.

June 20 - June 22, 2015 World Federation of Athletic Training and Therapy, 2015 World Congress: Overuse Injury in Sport an Interprofessional Approach The World Federation is a coalition of national organizations of health care professionals in the fields of sport, exercise, injury/illness prevention and treatment. The primary objective of the WFATT is to promote the highest quality of health care and functional activity through the collaborative efforts of its members.

The theme of this conference, "Overuse Injury in Sport, An Interprofessional Approach" addresses two areas of emphasis and current gaps in health care:  (1) assessment and management of overuse injury in sport and (2) Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP).

Much attention is paid to trauma and acute injuries in sport, mainly because there is clearly a moment of injury, they are easily assessed and, most often, interventions are easily identified.  However, several authors have reported that most injuries in sport are considered overuse or chronic injuries.  The etiology of these injuries is multifactorial and consensus is lacking on their management.  This conference is dedicated to providing clinicians with evidence-based knowledge and skills for the assessment and management of overuse injuries to improve the outcomes of their patients with overuse injury.

Collaborative patient-centered health care among professionals or Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP) is an emerging best practice in health care.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has created an initiative to enhance patient outcomes, reduce clinical error rates, increase patient satisfaction, and increase retention of healthcare professionals through IPCP and Interprofessional Education (IPE)  on a global scale.  Other organizations, the Institutes of Medicine, the American Medical Association, the American Physical Therapy Association, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association have also identified the importance of IPCP and IPE in the future of health care.  Addressing IPCP and IPE at this conference is intended to highlight the enhancement of patient outcomes and satisfaction and to provide guidance in implement these in their own practice.
