MUSC CME Spine Care 2017
On February 25, 2017
Patients normally seek out primary care providers when experiencing back pain, neck pain or radiating extremity pain. The goal of this conference is to improve competency when identifying these common and challenging conditions, and determine appropriate treatment options resulting in optimal patient outcomes. Clinicians should also be able to recognize and diagnose the more serious spinal conditions and make appropriate referrals based on physical exam, symptomatology and complaints. The topics for this conference were chosen based on feedback from needs assessment of primary care providers who attend our CME conferences as well as input collected from referring physicians in this region. This educational activity is designed for physicians, mid-level care providers, physical therapists, and chiropractors.
