136483| West Dean College| Structural Repair of Historic Buildings|

Structural Repair of Historic Buildings with Ian Hume

Location of course: West Dean College of Arts and Conservation, Chichester, West Sussex, PO18 0QZ
Dates of course: 7 - 10 June 2021

About:
This course is of special value to those who wish to gain a new perspective in applying engineering principles to the conservation of historic structures.

Various permanent repair methods which might be applied to historic buildings are discussed and there will be debate about the merits of hidden repairs against more obvious repairs. Not all historic buildings are as hazardous as they sometimes seem and we will discuss alternatives to the carrying out of repairs to apparently unstable structures.

The programme covers inspecting, monitoring and repair works ranging from pointing and grouting to tying and underpinning. It also includes practical exercises, demonstrations and trials of equipment and remedial monitoring techniques. Use will be made of case studies to illustrate various points, discussion will be encouraged and there will be opportunity for discussion in small groups to consider specific problems. There will also be a visit to the Weald and Downland Living Museum.

The course will be of value to architects, conservation officers, masons, carpenters and others involved in conservation, as well as to engineers.

136480| Oryon Develop| Webinar: The Menopause & Perimenopause: Physical & Mental Health Effects|

Is there a link between hormones and mood? What is the menopause, the perimenopause and their effects? What kind of Hormone Replacement Therapies (HRTs) are available? How can we help patients who experience depression and mood problems?

These are just a few of the questions that Dr Monica Lascar, Functional Medicine Practitioner and Sexual Health Consultant, will be answering over the course of this interactive webinar. Join us on Tuesday 6th July to enhance your knowledge on helping the whole patient.

Dr Lascar sets out to demonstrate that mental health is just as important as the patient’s physical health when it comes to the menopause and perimenopause.

She will be refreshing your knowledge on menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms both physically and mentally. Understanding hormones, we will be exploring whether there is an evidence-based link with mood, looking into the effects on our neuro-steroids and neurotransmitters. Your patients may experience reproductive depression or mood problems such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) or postnatal issues, and we will be establishing why this is and how we can help them.

We will be outlining a brief history of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and delving into the current options for your female patients.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Speaker: Dr Monica Lascar, Functional Medicine Practitioner and Sexual Health Consultant

What's included: Live 2-hour group learning webinar, speaker's slides (if permitted), CPD certificate, recording of the course.

136479| Multiple Locations| Pharmacoepidemiology & Pharmacovigilance|

Postgraduate Professional Development Short Course (30 credits)

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has focused huge attention on the importance of pharmacoepidemiology. Speculation about the role of prescribed drugs such as ACE inhibitors, NSAIDs and hydroxychloroquine, followed by often poorly conducted studies of association with COVID-19, has caused anxiety globally. Development of Coronavirus vaccines will result in the need for intensive surveillance of subsequent safety profiles internationally. Having the skills to conduct and interpret such studies to a high standard has never been more important.

The global challenge of maximising drug safety yet maintaining public confidence has become increasingly complex. Health authorities are tasked to provide quality care while managing a growing drug budget. Regulatory authorities must balance the potential benefits of new drugs with the perception of their potential harm.

This Postgraduate Professional Development Short Course addresses the need for well-informed professionals to work in all areas related to the assessment of drug safety and the management of risks and benefits of medications, including vaccines.

This course is run in collaboration with University of London, and applications must be made via the University of London website.

Course objectives

This course aims to equip you with a basic understanding of the concepts and practice of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance, and to apply these skills to a currently unresolved drug safety issue. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding and critically evaluate issues surrounding the risks and benefits of drug use in humans including the cause, manifestations and consequences of adverse drug effects (ADEs), the manner in which these are detected and monitored, and the related historic and legal frameworks
  • Understand and critically compare fundamental statistical, economic and epidemiological concepts and methods
  • Understand and critically reflect upon important pharmacoepidemiological concepts and methods and how these methods can be applied to specific drug issues
  • Assess and critically analyse the results of pharmacoepidemiological studies, including critical appraisal of the study question, study design, methods and conduct, statistical analyses and interpretation
  • Understand how new medicines are assessed for their cost-effectiveness as well as efficacy and safety, before being recommended for use
  • Apply the techniques and approaches covered in the taught element of the course, plus your own experience, to evaluate issues presented to you in the format of a project, and where relevant, develop recommendations for the best option or options

Key course topics

Pharmacoepidemiology - you will learn about the fundamentals of pharmacoepidemiology, its conduct, practical uses and limitations in determining the effects of medications in large groups of people. The statistical basis underpinning pharmacoepidemiology will also be introduced, and you will integrate statistics and epidemiology to gain competence in critically appraising pharmacoepidemiology studies.

Pharmacovigilance - you will be introduced to the key elements of pharmacovigilance and its basis within drug regulation. Within the risk management elements of the course, you will gain insight into how pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance are combined in the investigation of the effects of medicines. Principles will largely be demonstrated within the European legislative context, whilst recognizing these general principles apply more broadly throughout the world.

Health economics - you will be introduced to the fundamental concepts involved in assessing the cost effectiveness of health technologies and methodologies used to assess the health related quality of life. Real world examples will be used to illustrate concepts.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at personnel involved in the safe use of medicines, particularly in developed countries. This includes those working (or intending to work) in: the pharmaceutical industry who are involved in drug development, licensing and surveillance; regulatory bodies who are involved in licensing and surveillance; the health service who are involved in drug policy; and health policy decision-making agencies.

136324| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Current Concepts in Scoliosis - Bespoke Treatment for the Patient|

Did you know in the UK around 3-4 in every 1000 children are diagnosed with scoliosis in need of treatment? Such a commonly presented condition can often be overlooked. This webinar will be the learning curve you need to enhance your knowledge and skills on best-practice management of scoliosis.

Mr Darren Lui, Consultant Complex Spinal Surgeon, joins us for his second spinal webinar in this series to talk to us about bespoke treatment for the scoliotic patient and their curve pattern.

To start, we will be understanding when patients need bracing and when should they be weaned off it. We all know the basic anatomy of scoliosis, but how do we analyse X-rays to identify skeletal maturity and growth velocity? Mr Lui will be looking at the Risser pelvis, left hand and olecranon to assess potential scoliotic patients. We will also be examining how you can objectively measure Cobb Angles and the reviewing efficacy of EOS dual planar imaging for scoliosis.

Minimising fusion levels is important to avoid long constructs, therefore selective spinal fusions can be chosen, such as Selective Anterior Thoracic Fusion and Anterior Thoracolumbar Fusion. We will be finding out what these involve. Mr Lui will also be exploring Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) modalities, delving into growth modulation and anterior scoliosis correction. We will also be asking are there alternatives to VBT?

Early onset scoliosis can be a particularly problematic for young patients. We will be learning about treatment methods including growing rod technology, Magnetically Controlled Growing Rods (MAGEC) and Traditional Growing Rods (TGR).

Lastly, Mr Lui will be giving us his insight into conservative management of scoliosis, such as Scoliosis Specific Physiotherapy Exercises (SSPE), Schroth method scoliosis care, and bracing.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Speaker: Consultant Complex Spinal Surgeon, Mr Darren Lui
