In this package you will have access to the following courses:
Ethics and Social Safety in Healthcare
Lynn Gerner, DC, FICPA
2 ethics CE hours
This program addresses ethical principles of healthcare as viewed through the lens of race and breastfeeding. There is documented disparity between health outcomes in the Black vs. non-black community. This is particularly visible in the areas of birth and breastfeeding. Dr. Gerner provides information about the origins of racism in the US and causative issues of inherent bias and privilege and how our healthcare system and individual chiropractic patients are influenced by these. Research studies and live interviews are presented to show how these factors lead to high rates of infant mortality, poor maternal health and generational disparity in the Black communities of all socioeconomic levels. Inclusive policies/procedures in the chiropractic office are addressed to improve care for all races and gender identities. Policies and procedures are explained using the AMA’s Nine Principles of Medical Ethics.
Patient Centered Chiropractic: Delivering Quality Care from Start to Finish
Derrell Blackburn, DC, MBA
4 exam/technique CE hours
How do you see your patients?
Patient Centered Chiropractic is designed to explain the significant aspects of delivering quality care, facilitating the healing journey of the patient from start to finish. Each team member in a chiropractic office participates in quality care and delivering the results the patient needs to get from where they are, to where they want to be. This seminar helps you approach care from a biopsychosocial model, considering the full health of the patient.
