Understanding Patient Psychology in the COVID-19 WorldContains 4 Component(s)

Prevention of Medical Errors Amidst a PandemicContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Simulation training is an established training tool in many military and aviation settings. As chiropractors, we are educated to recognize and prevent errors in the patient's care. However, we are experiencing patient care situations with unparalleled history due to the COVID pandemic, the mutations, and the sequela suffered by its victims. It has been found that at least one-third of COVID-19 patients may experience lingering neurological issues after recovering from the infection, and 30 – 50% of people are going to have some mental health issues. The course's goal is to provide the chiropractor and their staff with an overview of the problem of medical errors, factors contributing to the occurrence of these errors, and steps that can be taken to reduce medical errors in key care settings. We will discuss policies and procedures to mitigate patient care mistakes, resulting in a decreased risk to patients and doctors themselves.
Strategic Patient Conversations - Improve Pain-CopingContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
In this course, Dr. Ya-Ling J. Liou will discuss how to achieve better lasting and evidence-based outcomes in your patients with pain by incorporating a 5-step strategy to improve coping and resilience. Doctors of Chiropractic are frequently the first portal of entry for patients with pain. Patients’ experience with pain is shaped by context and that context is laid down haphazardly during childhood by caregivers, whose focus is usually on moving past it as quickly as possible. Without acknowledging patients’ belief systems around pain as shaped by their earliest pain experiences, lasting relief will remain out of reach. Dr. John Gottmann of the University of Washington did the groundbreaking research which led to what is now widely referred to as Emotion Coaching. This is a 5-step strategy that has been shown to improve coping and resilience for emotions. Given the shared neurobiology by pain and emotion, these 5 steps are an important addition to any clinical practice. Attend this webinar to learn how to use your conversation with patients to achieve lasting, evidence-based outcomes.
What the A’s? How to be an Evidence-based Practice ClinicianContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a way of approaching decision making about clinical issues. It means making decisions with the best and most current knowledge possible from science and from practice, with a provider’s expertise, experience, life knowledge and intuition completely integrated, and with patient collaboration, where the healthcare provider values what the patient wants as the outcome for this decision. The 5A’s – Ask, Acquire, Appraise, Apply, Assess/Adjust – is a framework to assist provider’s implementing EBP decision-making. This framework will be described in the presentation with examples being from the literature on chiropractic care for children in sports.

Chronic musculoskeletal pain has reached epidemic levels around the world. Millions of people suffering turn to Chiropractors and other professionals for relief of their symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no absolute consensus on the best way to manage and treat these people. In the wake of the lack of an accepted standard of care, Chiropractors attempt different techniques, modalities, and practice styles with different outcomes. How can we be certain our treatment plans are backed up by the most current evidence? When do Chiropractors co-manage with other specialties? How often should they present for therapy? This webinar will explore the nature of clinical evidence, what a clinical practice guideline (CPG) is, how we can use them to strengthen our care plans, and how the Chiropractic profession, through the Clinical Compass, is bridging the gap between evidence and everyday practice.

With the rise of an office-based culture and the predominance of screens, millions of people around the world are finding themselves with life affecting neck pain and symptoms. Chiropractors have been successfully treating neck pain for over a century, but how do we KNOW what we have been doing is supported by evidence? Are we doing the right things? How do we handle complicated patients? How long do we treat them before we seek collaboration? What exactly ARE the best practices?

Treating Concussion Beyond the Adjustment in a Chiropractic PracticeContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Concussion has been a common topic in the media for the last few years and continues to present challenges to physicians, patients and patient athletes. In the chiropractic office, we can treat the concussed patient and include nutrition and supplement recommendations. There is also a wide variety of testing to evaluate damage to the immune system and neurological system, which can be treated successfully with the right information. With a disruption of the blood brain barrier, infection is extremely common. With inflammation, the stress of the injury or the stress prior to the injury can also affect outcomes and the duration of symptoms. Looking at how the adrenals, gut function, neurotransmitters, basic nutrition and deficiencies can aid the chiropractic physician in instituting care beyond, yet including, musculoskeletal treatment in their office. Simple recommendations can be implemented immediately after the history physical and diagnosis is rendered.
