Program Description

This intensive review course is designed to examine current practices with emphasis on recent advances in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Target Audience

The potential audience includes:

  • Senior Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) resident physicians preparing for Part I (Written) of the Board Certification Examination
  • PM&R physicians in their first year of practice preparing for Part II (Oral) of the Board Certificate Examination
  • Practicing PM&R physicians seeking continuing medical education and a knowledge update
  • Practicing PM&R physicians preparing for their ABPM&R Maintenance of Certification Examination

Statement of Need

  • Electrodiagnosis is a highly technical skill and there is lack of uniformity in how different practitioners execute it. Based on previous evaluations, there is still a need for more hands-on training with EMG, including examinations on Myopathies and Motor Neuron Disease and Radiculopathies.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury is still underrecognized, and due to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the incidence has increased because of better technology and equipment used by our armed forces.
  • Separately, physiatry has expanded over the past decades to include an interest in Musculoskeletal and sports medicine, including sports-related concussion.
  • Clinicians need to be aware of diagnosis and management of cognitive, somatic, and emotional sequelae in concussed athletes.
  • It is now more common for physiatrists to handle spasticity management using either botulinum toxin injections or ITB pump refilling as new data is published regarding the effectiveness of these treatments. Younger physiatrists were exposed to hands-on training with these treatment options during residency, but older clinicians were not and they need adequate hands-on training in order to properly and effectively manage their patients’ spasticity.
  • Physiatrists are becoming more established as experts in the area of Musculoskeletal Disorders and are seeing more patients in need of treatment. There is a need for practicing physiatrists to focus on their diagnostic and treatment skills for this disorder, including understanding the importance of Musculoskeletal ultrasound, including limitations and capabilities of using high-resolution, real-time imaging of musculoskeletal features for diagnostic and interventional procedures.
  • Healthcare reform underscores a remarkable change in the regulatory landscape in the field of PM&R; physiatrists are held more accountable and expected to understand complexities of navigating the healthcare system, multiple payers, value-based purchasing, and bundling.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Incorporate evidence-based techniques for performing electrodiagnostic tests into practice
  • Incorporate a diagnostic strategy for traumatic brain injury, based on awareness of high incidence
  • Apply traditional physiatric care regarding traumatic brain injury for assessment and treatment of the concussed athlete
  • Demonstrate knowledge of diagnosis and management of the concussed athlete
  • Demonstrate correct injection and implanting techniques when treating spasticity management with botulinum toxin or use of an intrathecal baclofen (ITB) pump
  • Incorporate best evidence-based clinical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of Musculoskeletal Disorders
  • Evaluate limitations and capabilities of Musculoskeletal ultrasound for diagnostic and interventional procedures
  • Incorporate the regulatory changes in PM&R
