Free Pharmacology Hours for Nurse Practitioners- Intrathecal Drug Delivery for Chronic Pain Managment

intrathecal pain mgtIntrathecal Drug Delivery for Chronic Pain – Selecting Patients and Optimizing Long-term Outcomes– Chronic pain affects an estimated 100 million adults in the United States. Because of the diversity of patient background and of chronic pain conditions, mechanisms, and clinical manifestations, a large population of patients is unable to achieve adequate pain relief or attainable functional goals. When patients are refractory to conventional medical management, intrathecal delivery of analgesics may provide certain advantages. Over the last 3 decades, the more than 300,000 patients who have received implanted pumps for a variety of indications have helped establish intrathecal therapy as a safe and effective method of drug delivery.  Two analgesic agents have been approved for intrathecal use by the US Food and Drug Administration: ziconotide and morphine. Nevertheless, intrathecal therapy may be underutilized owing to poor patient selection, safety concerns, and other systemic barriers. This Interactive Professor™ program will provide data and guidance on evaluating patients who are candidates for intrathecal drug delivery, initiating intrathecal therapy for chronic pain, and tailoring therapy to reflect ongoing monitoring.
Comprehensively evaluate patients with chronic pain who are candidates for intrathecal drug delivery.
Discuss the clinical profiles and prescribing considerations associated with intrathecally delivered analgesic medications, including ziconotide and morphine.
Initiate intrathecal therapy for chronic pain based on an individualized evaluation of potential benefits and risks, previous treatment responses, and an adequate therapeutic trial.
Tailor intrathecal drug therapy to reflect ongoing monitoring for efficacy and treatment-emergent adverse events.

Weight Loss & Low Calorie Sweeteners- Free CEUs for Pharmacists

Can Low Calorie Sweeteners Help with Weight Management?– Weight management is a perpetual hot topic in scientific circles and the media. When it comes to the role of low-calorie sweeteners, research appears to be mixed.

The Role of Timing in the Brain- Free AOTA CEUs for Occupational Therapists

brain and computer chipIntroduction to Clinical Application of IM– This informative presentation will challenge you to think about the effectiveness & efficiency of the services you provide to your patients and students. There are numerous peer-reviewed clinical studies that clarify the role of timing in the brain (or what is referred to as temporal processing) to a wide array of human cognitive & motor abilities in both children and adults, including attention/concentration, working memory, executive functions (planning, organizing, self-evaluating, self-control), cognitive processing and speed, speech production and auditory processing, language, reading, learning, and motor control/coordination. You will learn the importance of addressing underlying deficits in timing & rhythm to improve neural efficiency in order to accelerate and exceed expected outcomes. The Interactive Metronome is a patented intervention that improves timing in the brain & body. An overview of the clinical application of Interactive Metronome relevant to a variety of allied health and educational disciplines will be discussed.

Remission in Major Depressive Disorder- Free CCMC CEUs for Case Managers

antidepressantRemission in MDD: What Does the Future Hold for Clinicians and Patients?
Although many antidepressants are available to treat major depressive disorder (MDD), as many as 70% of patients diagnosed with MDD do not reach remission even after receiving an adequate course of treatment. Remission is currently being redefined. The outcome measure that is generally reported in clinical trials “has been arbitrarily defined as a symptom reduction of 50% or greater from pretreatment in total symptom severity.” Yet, a response that does not achieve an asymptomatic remitted state “constitutes an unsatisfactory outcome in that it includes patients with ongoing, clinically significant disease activity. While symptomatic remission increases the probability for recovery in MDD. Available evidence indicates that the majority of individuals with MDD receiving guideline-concordant and measurement-based care do not achieve and sustain a fully remitted state with index antidepressant treatment.
This neuroscienceCME Live and On Demand will challenge clinicians to reinvent the future of MDD treatment which includes increased patient participation in the treatment process, measurement-based care and a re-definition of treatment to remission as improvement of all symptoms of MDD with functional recovery.
Assess symptom severity with a validated tool at each visit.
Initiate an evidence-based treatment plan that involves patient participation to address residual symptoms of depression.
Develop a long-term treatment plan with the patient focused on sustained remission and recovery.

Free CPEUs for Registered Dieticians- Understanding Inactivity Physiology

couch potatoUnderstanding Inactivity Physiology– Inactivity physiology represents a paradigm shift for how we think about how lifestyle causes disease. Simply put, the inactivity physiology paradigm says that “too little exercise” is not the same as “too much sitting” (physical inactivity) and that too much sitting has very potent effects on the body contributing to the most common diseases. This course describes the exciting news emerging from the young and rapidly growing field of “inactivity physiology,” which is taking aim at improving health in a sedentary society and targeting some of the most common diseases caused by sedentary lifestyles.
Explain the basic tenets of the inactivity physiology paradigm, including why “too little exercise” is not the same as “too much sitting.”
Assess patient willingness, ability, and readiness to change physical activity behaviors.
Review tools to help patients evolve from an inactive to an active lifestyle and meet the recommended physical activity guidelines.
