Hour 1: The Biopsychosocial Model of Health
How to incorporate advanced concepts of basic science such as anatomy, physiology, endocrinology, and neurology into your examination & history process. We will discuss the components of each and how they all play a role in the patient’s desire to seek care as well as how they will present in the history/exam.
Hour 2: Examination Red Flags, Referrals and Reviews
Quality care is determined by the doctor’s ability to know when the right time to treat is. Common presentations will be discussed as well as well as how to rule out red flags. If red flags are present, the proper lines of communication will be discussed as well as co management of a patient. When it is determined a patient is in the right place, quality care will lead to referrals when discussed adequately.
Hour 3: Technique & Treatment Protocols
We will review the standards of care as well as common techniques & treatment protocols for patients of all presentations. From acute care to chronic, each patient deserves to be cared for as an individual and ethically prescribed the correct technique and amount of care based on their presentation.
Hour 4: Pain to Wellness
Pain looks different for different populations. The causes for each population will be discussed as well as different techniques and care options for the specific population. From pediatrics to geriatrics, each deserve care and each deserve an opportunity to live a high quality of life, regardless of where they are in life.
