PURPOSE

The purpose of the American Medical Seminars, Inc. (AMS) CME Program is to develop and deliver clinically relevant, evidence-based CME activities in an effort to align practitioner’s behavior with current clinical guidelines and the evidence to improve their competence and the care they provide their patients.

OVERALL OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this CME activity, through the use of clinical vignettes emphasizing Guidelines and Evidence-Based Medicine, the physician or healthcare provider should be able to formulate a differential, make a diagnosis, and develop a plan for the prevention and/or therapeutic management of the various disorders presented.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES FOR EACH TOPIC:

TOPIC 1: Brain and Spine Trauma.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Identify appropriate indications for ordering an imaging study in the assessment of neurological trauma.
  2. Determine the best study to order when clinically indicated for neurological trauma.
  3. Assess the stability or instability of spine fractures.

TOPIC 2: Concussion and Sports: A Guide for Primary Care.

Upon completion of this session, using Cochrane EBM sources and guidelines from the 3rd International Symposium on Concussion in Sports, the participant should be able to: COMP, GL, EBM

  1. Describe the pathophysiology and, using evidence-based medicine, review the emergency treatment of concussion.
  2. Apply an evidence-based medicine approach to decisions regarding imaging after minor head trauma.
  3. Demonstrate use of currently recommended management approaches for assessment, follow up, and return to play.

TOPIC 3 Evaluation and Treatment of Neck Pain.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: GL, COMP

  1. Describe the injuries that can occur in the neck region of athletes and athletic individuals.
  2. Develop a logical differential diagnosis for any athletic or active individual presenting with neck pain.
  3. Determine the rationale behind treatment approaches to various neck injuries as per the Cochrane Library Reviews and ACR (Rheumatology).
  4. Assess and order laboratory and imaging studies to assist in the diagnosis of neck injuries and pathologies as per the ACR Radiology Criteria and Guidelines.

TOPIC 4: Approach to Stress Fractures.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: GL, COMP

  1. Describe the stress fractures that can occur in various bones of athletes and athletic individuals.
  2. Determine the rationale behind differing treatment approaches to preventing and treating stress fractures, such as the ACSM and AOSSM Guidelines.
  3. Develop rehabilitation points and advice for athletic or active individuals presenting with stress injuries and fractures, with consideration of the specific bone or bones involved.
  4. Assess and order laboratory and imaging studies to assist in the diagnosis and prognostication of stress injuries and fractures as per the ACR Guidelines.

TOPIC 5: Trauma Case Studies.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Specify and apply critical issues in the evaluation and management of the injured patient using a case-based format.
  2. Identify the essentials of early ED care for the trauma patient using a case-based approach.
  3. Discuss the “essentials” of the effective inter-facility trauma transfer.

TOPIC 6: Upper Extremity Trauma.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Determine the utility of different projections of plain films of the upper extremity.
  2. Evaluate radiographic findings of common fractures and dislocations in the shoulder.
  3. Interpret common fractures of the wrist on plain radiographs.
