133457| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Advanced FMLA: Issues and Solutions|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview:

Is ensuring your company's compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) giving you a 'serious health condition'? Does trying to determine the interplay between the FMLA, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) make you want to file an unfair labor practice charge? If so, then this information is for you.

You will learn what constitutes a 'serious health condition' under the FMLA, what you can do to identify and address potential abuse of FMLA leave, and the interplay between the FMLA and other similar medical and disability-related leave statutes.

As if that weren't enough, this topic will also provide tips and tricks for suggested best practices and answer your FMLA-related questions.

Why should you Attend:It is estimated that mistakes employers make in managing FMLA cost $21 billion in lost productivity, continued health benefits, and labor replacement. Understanding the law, as well as the interaction of FMLA with other laws can be a challenging task. Studies estimate that over half of all employers have granted unverified time off.

Lawsuits that have resulted from wrongful terminations cost on average over $300,000. Information may mean better and more cost-effective decisions may be made and provide protection to the company.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Serious Health Condition
    • Inpatient Care
    • Continuing Treatment
    • Chronic Conditions

133414| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Belfast - September 2019|

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

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants 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).
- 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)
- attend all 6 days of the course

Using a series of case studies, Mr Arjuna Imbuldeniya will demonstrate how allied health professionals can best optimise outcomes of surgery and how to best manage patient expectations.

133408| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Weston Super Mare - September 2019|

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

 

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants 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).
- 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)
- attend all 6 days of the course
