Management of Challenging Cases
Why this course?
The medical literature is constantly evolving and practitioners often find it hard to stay current with best practice guidelines.
In order to provide optimal care, clinicians must recognize common signs and symptoms of injury. Practitioners should utilize appropriate clinical tests and imaging in order to make the correct diagnosis. Patient care is often difficult as injury can impact pain, function, sleep, daily activity, and sports participation. Treatment often varies between practitioners and is frequently not based on the best available evidence. The use of opioids may benefit some patients, but the proper patient selection and use need to be scrutinized to optimize outcomes and prevent addiction. Conservative and surgical treatment options should be weighed and selected based on the potential for optimal outcomes.
This activity is designed for athletic trainers interested in or involved with the management of sports-related injuries.
Upon completion of this program, learners should be better able to:
- Discuss the considerations for opioid use and consider alternative pain reduction methods.
- Recognize signs and symptoms injury and determine appropriate referral, imaging and care.
- Choose appropriate indications and methods for reducing joint dislocations.
- List common clinical considerations for managing sports injuries.
