2020 Online 12 Hour CE Package

Overview

Life West is providing a one of a kind 12 hour CE package featuring some of the best and brightest in chiropractic. Included are all California mandatory topics for re-licensure. In this package we have provided seminars that are relevant, up to date, and in line with some of the most important conversations of the profession to date. In this package you will have access to the following courses:

Ethics, Law, and Preventing HIPPA Audits in a Social Media World
Michelle Massa, DC
2 ethics CE hours
 
Dr. Massa is a practicing chiropractor and former faculty and Health Center Compliance Officer at Life Chiropractic College West.  She'll guide you through the latest laws, policies, and procedures so that your practice will be compliant and up to date.
 
Examination of Headaches, Vertigo, and Cervical Spine Sprain and Strain
Ramneek Bhogal, DC
4  exam/technique CE hours
 
This 4 hour presentation is designed to help practitioners identify common headaches, types of dizziness, and sprain/strain of the cervical spine through clinical history taking and examination.  Clinical signs and symptoms will be reviewed and emphasis will be placed on how to differentiate one presentation from the other during examination.  Attendees will walk away with the confidence to identify and better care for patients with these clinical diagnoses.
 
Stroke: Cervical Spine Adjusting, Stroke and Cervical Artery Issues
Gerry Clum, DC
3  general CE hours
 
The conversation around cervical spine adjusting and vertebral artery issues has changed significantly in the last ten years.  Recent epidemiological and anatomical research illuminates and clarifies the disputed connections between chiropractic and stroke.  Dr. Clum delivers a clear and invigorating update on the safety of cervical spine adjusting and vertebral artery issues, based on a review of the scientific literature.
 
Diagnostic Imaging in Chiropractic Practice
Jamie Motley, MA., DC, DACBR
2 x-ray CE hours
 
Dr. Motley, Life West Professor and Director of the Master’s of Science in Diagnostic Imaging program, presents current imaging standards and practice and reviews typical and unusual cases.
 
Pharmaceuticals, Heart Rate Variability, and the Nervous System
Pamela McBride, DC
1 general CE hour
 
When it comes to medications, it pays to know your enemy. This one hour seminar demonstrates how balancing the nervous system can be made more difficult when certain medications are being taken by your patients. Without an understanding of medication impact, patients may fail to improve despite your best efforts.  Improve your patient care by understanding which classes of medications are most likely to impact the care you provide.
