127839| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Peterborough - October 2018|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer you a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow you to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

Tailor-made for Physiotherapists, the course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture – grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

You will be encouraged to critically evaluate your own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide you with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific ‘placebo’ effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:

- have HCPC physiotherapy registration

- have CSP membership

- be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts

- give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant).

- attend all 6 days of the course

- be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration (see AACP website for safety guidelines).

You will also benefit from one year FREE membership with the AACP.

Previous delegates have said:

I found the course really eye opening and refreshing to be taught such a skill and encouraged to actually make my own judgements about it based on a variety of sources instead of told why I should believe what someone else is saying.

I think the course itself is a credit to the AACP as an organisation and I am really glad I had the opportunity to benefit from the tutors personal experience and viewpoint as a teacher. I feel really quite lucky!

Early Bird Booking Offer - get this course for only £32+VAT

Himself a keen sportsman (having completed over 15 marathons) Mr Benedict Rogers, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, understands the desire of patients to get back onto their feet quickly and so has designed this evening course to share his experience in what health professionals can do to optimise patient recovery post-surgery.

We will look at the patient pathways available and the methods that can be used to treat a range of hip and knee problems both independently, and as part of a multidisciplinary team.
 
Furthermore, this course will cover the current surgical options available to patients, their aims and expected outcomes. Using a series of case studies, Mr Rogers will demonstrate how best to optimise outcomes of surgery and how to best manage patient expectations.

127831| Bournemouth University| Strategic Marketing in the Media|

Or ... the fundamentals of creativity and its expression in marketing communication ...

This course will provide you with a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of creativity, and its expression, in marketing communication. It also offers you an insight into the role of ‘Creatives’ and how they execute their function, through the analysis and application of the creative brief.

The increased competition in the marketing communications industry and the abundance of images in all areas of the media, makes for a cluttered marketplace. The ability to ‘conceptualise’, or at least to discern, strong solutions through optimal use of visual and verbal cues/techniques, is invaluable. These are the areas that enable an effective capturing of the emotional high ground for successful brands.

Based on critical analysis and synthesis of course material, you will develop the ability to produce communication ideas, and progress these ideas into creative/message strategies. Strategic intuition and the application of research will then enable you to deduce the suitability and originality of this ‘creative product’.

127812| Multiple Locations| Budget Setting, Management and Control|

This course is targeted at public sector managers (and those working in a non-profit environment) who have to take budget management extremely seriously, particularly in the current climate of budget reductions and increasing demands on public sector services.

Budget Management is now an integral part of general service management and therefore required across all areas of service within the public sector. It is increasingly becoming an essential knowledge area for most management positions.

Many of the currently available programmes are designed for the private sector, which has different primary objectives, i.e. making a profit as opposed to the public sector primary objective of delivering a service. This difference is reflected in the emphasis of the content of the programme; however, the fundamental principles are the same for all sectors.

Another distinguishing feature is the ability for the programme to be tailored to meet the needs of specific organisations. Whilst the structure of the programme would remain the same, we will be able to offer bespoke aspects of the course such as including an organisation’s own management reports to be used in monitoring exercises, and so on.

 

Programme Aims

  • To improve the financial competence of learners in the area of budget setting, management and control.
  • To enhance both the underpinning knowledge of the subject and the ability to practically implement budget management techniques.

127813| Multiple Locations| Budget Setting, Management and Control|

This course is targeted at public sector managers (and those working in a non-profit environment) who have to take budget management extremely seriously, particularly in the current climate of budget reductions and increasing demands on public sector services.

Budget Management is now an integral part of general service management and therefore required across all areas of service within the public sector. It is increasingly becoming an essential knowledge area for most management positions.

Many of the currently available programmes are designed for the private sector, which has different primary objectives, i.e. making a profit as opposed to the public sector primary objective of delivering a service. This difference is reflected in the emphasis of the content of the programme; however, the fundamental principles are the same for all sectors.

Another distinguishing feature is the ability for the programme to be tailored to meet the needs of specific organisations. Whilst the structure of the programme would remain the same, we will be able to offer bespoke aspects of the course such as including an organisation’s own management reports to be used in monitoring exercises, and so on.

 

Programme Aims

  • To improve the financial competence of learners in the area of budget setting, management and control.
  • To enhance both the underpinning knowledge of the subject and the ability to practically implement budget management techniques.
  • To advance the participants skills and abilities, and increase their effectiveness in their current or future job roles.

 

Programme Objectives

 

  • To ensure that learners understand the importance of budget setting as fundamental to managing budgets

127811| MentorHealth| Webinar On How to treat Anxiety Disorders|

Training Options
 Duration: 90 Minutes  
Tuesday, June 5, 2018   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

 Overview: Anxiety is one of the most common reasons clients seek mental health services. However, anxiety disorders can be especially difficult to treat, and oftentimes professionals note that many clients seek treatment for years with minimal relief. This topic teaches professionals the basic neuroscience behind anxiety, and explains why traditional methods are often necessary, but not sufficient, for recovery from anxiety.

Additionally, this content presents an easy-to-follow roadmap for anxiety treatment and presents several examples of techniques that have been shown to help clients better manage and reduce their anxiety in an efficient and effective manner.

Why should you Attend: Anxiety disorders are one of the most common reasons clients seek mental health services. However, some clients continue to experience severe symptoms months or years into treatment, despite treatment compliance. One reason progress can stall in therapy is that traditional psychotherapeutic methods often emphasize "top down," cognitive methods and do not incorporate "bottom up" (often somatic) techniques, which can alter key brain areas implicated in anxiety.

Attendees of this webinar will learn about the main areas of the brain involved in anxiety disorders, be able to identify at least two brain-changing techniques that have been shown to help clients manage and reduce anxiety, and outline three main ways to change the brain. With more options for anxiety treatment, treatment approaches can be tailored to individual clients’ needs. Attendees will leave the seminar with a better understanding of the necessary components of anxiety treatment, and concrete techniques they can begin using tomorrow.

Areas Covered in the Session:

    Here's Your Brain on Anxiety
        The "Main Players" of Anxiety and How Each Brain Area Functions in the Context of Anxiety
        Brain Connectivity: We're Wired to Be Anxious (and Alive)
        Anxiety and Its Connection to Common Pathways and Networks
    Three Ways to Change the Brain
        The Resilient, Non-Anxious Brain: Cool, Calm, and Collected
        Examples of Bottom-up, Top-Down, and Horizontal Techniques
        Roadmap for Creating a Non-Anxious Brain
    Brain-Changing Techniques You Can Start Using Tomorrow
        Interoceptive Exposure Exercises
        Body-Based Exercises
        Breathing-Based Exercises
        Movement-Based Exercises
        Cognitive Exercises


Who Will Benefit:

    Social Workers
    Licensed Mental Health Counselors

127810| MentorHealth| How to Examine Critical Regulatory Requirements related to physician Practice Acquisitions|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes  
Wednesday, June 13, 2018   |   11:00 AM PDT | 02:00 PM EDT

Overview:    In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law, including its 2016 changes. He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting physician practice acquisition arrangements on behalf of health systems, hospitals, medical groups and physician practices. The webinar will focus on regulatory requirements, key provisions, valuation considerations and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.

Why should you Attend: As health care organizations and physician practices pursue acquisition strategies and transition to more innovative post-transaction models, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring any new arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law.

Prior to moving forward with any arrangement, they should carefully evaluate whether the proposed structure and financial terms support compliance with Stark's technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility so they will be prepared to mount a defense in the event the arrangement is ever challenged. This webinar will focus on the Stark Law's underlying technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility as they apply to physician practice acquisitions.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Provide a General Stark Law overview
Examine Critical Regulatory Requirements related to physician Practice Acquisitions
Discuss best Practices for Drafting Purchase Agreements and the Related Financial Terms
Discuss best Practice for Drafting Post Transactions service Arrangements (e.g., Employment, Professional Services, etc.) and the related Financial Terms
Review processes for documenting Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness

127809| MentorHealth| Health Outcomes of Childhood ADHD - Impact on Life Expectancy and Clinical Implication|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes  
Friday, June 8, 2018   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview:    That childhood ADHD predisposes to increased risks for impairment in educational, family, peer, and eventual occupational functioning by young adulthood, among many other major domains of life activities is well established in research. Less appreciated is that the disorder also predisposes to increased health, medical, and dental risks, such as an increased risk for accidental injuries across the lifespan. And ADHD also predisposes to certainly personality traits and lifestyle choices that have a significant impact on these health related factors.

Such risks and impairments are known to influence estimated life expectancy. This lecture describes the various domains of major life activities that have been found to be significantly impaired in children growing up with ADHD by their young adult years. It will show that ADHD adversely affects health outcomes and that such outcomes may have a detrimental impact on estimated life expectancy by young adulthood. The implications of these findings for alterations in ADHD management will also be discussed.

Why should you Attend: Participants will be better able to understand the various and numerous domains of major life activities that childhood ADHD may impair across development. You are likely to be surprised to learn just how widespread the impairments association with untreated ADHD are likely to be, making it among the more impairing outpatient disorders treated in clinics. These psychological, educational, social, and occupational impairments have significant implications for life courses and intervention and are well understood.

But participants will also learn about the more recent findings concerning the various health and medically related domains that are also at risk for impairment when childhood ADHD goes untreated until adulthood. This will permit those attending to better appreciate the potential impact ADHD may have on both healthy years and total years of life expectancy as a consequence of these health related impairments. These new discoveries come from research that is still “in press” and thus allow participants to be as current as possible in understanding mortality risk and life expectancy in patients having ADHD.

Those attending will also learn the implications of these findings for improving management of ADHD across the life span. Evidence will show that ADHD is not only a mental health problem but a public health problem. You don’t want to miss out of these cutting edge findings and their implications for the clinical management of patients with ADHD.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Increase knowledge about impaired major life activities
Improve understanding of impact of childhood ADHD on various health and medical problems
Alert clinicians to the evidence that such adverse health effects adversely impact estimated life expectancy
Review the implications of these findings for revising approaches to clinical management of ADHD

Who Will Benefit:
Psychologists
Psychiatrists
Counselors
Clinical Social Workers
Psychiatric Nurses

127808| MentorHealth| Physician Employment Agreements: Items to Consider|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes  
Monday, May 7, 2018   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview:    We will review the various elements of the physician employment agreement, focusing on the pitfalls and the problems that can develop when the agreement does not clearly define the relationship, and/or when the parties do not fully understand what is being agreed to.

Such items as term and termination, termination for cause, duties of the physician, call, non-compete, and compensation are all items that should be clearly set out in the agreement and fully understood by the parties.

Why should you Attend: Formal written contracts establish the legal relationship between the parties; they state the terms and conditions of that relationship and the rights and obligations of each party. They confirm the intentions and relationships of the parties as they enter into this relationship, and they eliminate uncertainties regarding mutual rights, obligations, and relationships. If everything remained as it is at the time the agreement is signed, there would be little need for formal documents. However, the agreement serves to protect against future disputes. Therefore, it should include as precise language as possible. Ambiguous terms in agreements are of little effect when disputes occur over the meaning of a party's rights or obligations. You should attend to gain an understanding of what should and what should not be in a physician employment agreement.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Corporate practice of medicine
Term and termination
Termination for Cause
Severance pay
Provision allowing physician to terminate for cause
Severance pay
Duties of the physician
Standards for the provision of professional services
Referral to hospital
Continuing medical education

Who Will Benefit:
Physicians
Healthcare Executives
Physician Practice Managers

127807| MentorHealth| Webinar On ADHD: Diagnosis and Subtyping|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes  
Thursday, May 24, 2018   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview:    In this program Dr. Barkley provides detailed information on the specific nature of ADHD symptoms as revealed by clinical research so as to better inform the current diagnostic criteria for ADHD. He then reviews the various modifications necessary for updating the DSM criteria and making them more useful with special populations (girls, adults, etc.).

He also addresses the changes that are still needed to improve these diagnostic criteria based on findings in the research literature. Dr. Barkley then addresses the issue of subtyping of ADHD along with the emerging conclusion that one form of the inattentive type may constitute a new disorder known in research as sluggish cognitive tempo or sometimes called ADD by clinicians.

Why should you Attend: Attendance will familiarize you with the latest criteria for diagnosing ADHD in children and adults including not just the DSM-5 criteria, but also the modifications that are essential for applying those diagnostic criteria to special populations (girls, adults, etc.). These modifications were well documented in research over the past decade yet went ignored in the final version of DSM-5. You will find that clinicians can not afford to ignore such evidenced-based adjustments that permit a more rigorous approach to the diagnosis of ADHD than that permitted in the DSM-5 criteria.

These criteria will also be further informed by the latest clinical research perspective on the nature of ADHD as a disorder of executive functioning and self-regulation. The clinical implications of this perspective are far more useful for understanding the management of ADHD than is the attention deficit perspective.

Furthermore, those attending will learn about the new disorder of attention known as sluggish cognitive tempo that has come to replace the earlier Inattentive Type of ADHD, a subtype no longer recognized in DSM-5 as it has been demoted to a presentation. You won’t want to miss out on these cutting edge discoveries and their clinical implications as presented by an international authority on ADHD who tracks the published research findings weekly and brings those findings into his presentations.

Areas Covered in the Session:

The current research clinical view of ADHD
The nature of the attention and inhibition problems evident in ADHD
Understanding ADHD as a disorder of executive functioning
The DSM-5 criteria
The problems with DSM-5 criteria and how to fix them
The problems with earlier DSM subtyping of ADHD and a more recent alternative approach
The nature of sluggish cognitive tempo – a distinct disorder of attention from ADHD that can be comorbid with it

Who Will Benefit:
Psychologists
Psychiatrists
Counselors
Clinical Social Workers
Psychiatric Nurses

127805| MentorHealth| Webinar On Vascular Catheterizations - the Basics|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes   
Thursday, May 17, 2018   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview:    This Webinar will help you establish(or re-establish for some of us) a Catheter coding foundation.Beginning with defining the common physician/specialty phrases and words we encounter we will start to understand the building blocks of Selective and Non-selective catheterizations, access sites and laterality as described by the physician documentation.What is included in these codes will be a topic for discussion as will notes or indicators as to other procedures the physician may have performed that are separately billable.

The main body of the presentation with provide plenty of "hands-on" practice scenarios including a basic 5 Step Guide to capturing each catheterization code and when to add more than one! As we explore through the Five Catheter Coding Zones, Arterial (upper and lower Diaphragm), Venous, Pulmonary and Portal areas, we will cover 26 common scenarios plus unique coding exceptions to each Zone that you will want to take special note of.

Finally, our discussion will close with a review the current CPT® codes that bundle these catheterizations and the (much needed) incentive to keep going in this ever-changing specialty.I hope you can join us for this valuable discussion!

Why should you Attend: Catheterization codes are complex, high paying Interventional Radiology Codes that many practices and offices perform every day.Building a correct foundation in capturing these codes is an absolute must in this industry. Incorrect coding of these procedures can cause thousands of dollars in lost revenue or even thousands of dollars in overpayment making your practice subject to legal fees, back-payment and fearful audits.

Education is they key to avoiding overpayment that could appear negligent or worse yet, intentional. Protect your practice by inter-office education and establishing skills that will last year to year.

Areas Covered in the Session:

What are the Codes Involved?
Definitions of Common Terms
The Vascular Zones
Practice Scenarios
Special Notes
Codes that include Cathers
What's Next?

127804| MentorHealth| Scoop - Top Targets of Fed HIPAA Enforcers & Simple Steps to Take Control|

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes

Overview:    This webinar for HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates will identify the top OCR HIPAA enforcement priorities for 2018 and explain simply how you can master HIPAA compliance requirements for each enforcement priority.

Why should you Attend: HIPAA Compliance is in crisis throughout the United States. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services has just announced results of its recent HIPAA Compliance Audits of Covered Entities (CEs). The audited CEs represented a cross-section of all types and sizes throughout the nation. All knew they were on a shortlist to be audited and had access well in advance to the questions they would be asked and documents they would be required to produce. Nevertheless, OCR found 94% (59 of 63) of CEs to be inadequate or worse in Risk Management compliance and 87% (55 of 63) to be inadequate or worse in Risk Analysis compliance. No CE was in compliance with the Risk Analysis required implementation specification in effect since 2005.

OCR also audited HIPAA Compliance of a randomly selected cross-section of Business Associates (BAs) but has not released the results yet. OCR has identified HIPAA Compliance topics that are its biggest concern and top targets for CE and BA enforcement, including, obviously Risk Analysis-Risk Management. All are routine, easily avoided and non-compliance is extremely dangerous for Covered Entities, Business Associates and Patients. Not surprisingly, HIPAA Enforcement and demands for protection of Individually Identifiable Health Information is ramping up dramatically. The public, law enforcement and elected officials are alarmed and many are outraged by continuous, serious breaches of Health Information and medical identity theft. More than 170 million Americans have been victimized since OCR began to keep count in 2009. And the organizations experiencing breaches or committing violations suffered significant financial loss and immeasurable, ongoing damage to their reputations - whether they are nationally known or locally prominent.

This session will identify OCR's highest priorities for HIPAA Compliance and explain the simple steps CEs and BAs may follow to comply. Some think HIPAA is complex, impossible to understand or follow. We think differently. The secret is the HIPAA rules are easy to follow step-by-step when you know the steps. The HIPAA Rules are a blueprint to protect Health Information. You should attend this session to see the blueprint and learn how to find and follow the HIPAA Rules easily, simply, step-by-step.
