IPCE Upcoming Activities
This annual, full day, interactive conference provides a focused update on cardiac arrhythmia care for your patients. Cardiac arrhythmias may indicate serious heart disease, an increased susceptibility to stroke, or sudden cardiac death. On the other hand, many arrhythmias are relatively innocent. In any case, many arrhythmias are amenable to excellent treatment outcomes when physicians and nurses are well informed. Update your knowledge through presentations by experts in Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology, panel-led question-and-answer sessions and lively case discussions using interactive technology.
Medicine is changing rapidly and the pace of change is even greater in Neurology. This conference will provide an annual update to primary care specialists who are the first contact for the patient with a neurological complaint. Tools for early recognition and updated guidelines for diagnosis and treatment will be presented and discussed. Newer technology and tools for a variety of neurological disorders and conditions will be shared.
This full day didactic course will focus on the evaluation and non-surgical treatment of common orthopedic conditions. Topics will cover treatment of acute injuries, back pain, sports medicine injuries, and best management practices of orthopedic injuries. Clinical exam and diagnostic pearls, pitfalls to avoid, and a practical treatment approach for the primary care provider will be provided for the various conditions. The specific conditions and topics presented alternate approximately every six years to ensure a fresh approach and new curriculum is presented every year. Ample time is allotted for questions during the day and orthopedic surgeons and affiliated providers will be available for your specific case questions.
Pediatric dermatology is a growing and needed subspecialty. The pediatric population has special dermatologic needs, and the field of pediatric dermatology is devoted to meeting those needs through education and advances in research and clinical care. The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital has the largest group of board-certified pediatric dermatologists in the region, and all members of the division participate in the production of this activity.
Child Abuse Summit: Tips from the Team is designed to provide medical and professionals from all disciplines with the knowledge, tools, and skills needed to properly identify and respond to all types of child and family maltreatment including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and/or neglect.
Integrated Behavioral Healthcare: Evidence Based Practices & Innovations is a one-day interactive conference which will include plenary presentations, question-and-discussion periods, and break-out sessions on a variety of relevant topics. Course content and delivery is designed to help participants develop practical strategies and valuable networks while pursuing a plan for behavioral health integration.
This conference brings together a diverse audience of clinicians, administrators, and staff involved or interested in bringing behavioral health expertise into general medical care—to better achieve whole-person care and reduce fragmentation across the medical-mental health divide.
While it is challenging to adapt our systems and patient care models, it is imperative that we continue to find ways to enhance the implementation of behavioral healthcare services in healthcare settings. We can accelerate our efforts by learning from each other’s attempts. Through this conference and its subsequent initiatives, it is our goal to continue to provide an educational summit where healthcare providers/organizations/teams can convene to share their insights, lessons learned, and best practices related to the effective integration of behavioral healthcare into the primary care setting.
The goal of Health Professions Education is to develop learners who are equipped to improve health in the modern health care ecosystem. In order to meet this goal, it is fundamental that educators use data to constantly improve their educational programs and measure their effectiveness. Examples of data include clinical data, population health data, and educational data. This conference will focus on sharing strategies for gathering high-quality educational data, interpreting data, using data to drive improvement, and linking education to clinical and population outcomes. Sessions will be highly interactive and emphasize implementable strategies.
This conference is intended for multidisciplinary members who work with obese patients; these include bariatricians, psychologists, registered nurses, registered dietitians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and program managers. The material discussed during the 1.5 day course will be geared toward quality and safety improvements in the care of the obese patient population. We will have both national and local presenters speak about these vital topics that affect patient outcomes. There will also be time allotted for participants to have their questions answered during the panel discussions.
