I wanted to share a conference that I'm helping plan in January 2020: Pediatric Sports Medicine Conference: Managing Pain in Your Young Athletes After Injuries. I attended last year and really enjoyed the content. It sold out last year, so if you're interested in attending, be sure to register before the end of Dec. UCSF Benioff Sports Medicine faculty will present evidence-based management of acute and chronic pain, including the roles of ice, splints and braces, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and physical therapy. By the end of this conference, participants will be able to: Recognize the early signs and symptoms of pain amplification syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome that could occur after injury Apply appropriate pain management strategies for young athletes, including ice and other modalities, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy, and physical therapy Discuss the red ‑ flags of pediatric musculoskeletal injuries, including when to get X-rays and when to refer Describe the proper prescription and fitting of upper- and lower extremity splints, including their duration of use depending on injury diagnosis Explain the steps needed for proper evaluation and management of concussions to avoid persistent post-concussion symptoms, including chronic headache pain Identify rheumatological causes of joint and back pain in pediatric patients Here is the link for more information or to register: https://ucsfbch.regfox.com/2020-pediatric-sports-medicine-conference
Hi All, I am orthopedic sports medicine and shoulder PA working at a practice in the Chicagoland area. I have been with this practice for over two years and my patient load has picked up but most of my patients are follow up visits. My physician does give me a lot of autonomy and I do have my own schedule. I have found that it is difficult to market my name in order to get more new patients added to my schedule. Obviously, part of the problem is that I am not a physician and some patients want to have an appointment with the physician first. I don't expect to see a ton of patients but I would like at least one new patient an hour if possible. I was wondering if anyone in a similar situation had any advice on how to increase the amount of new patients that I see? I have talked to the schedulers about putting add-ons on my schedule as much as possible. This has helped slightly but they are usually same day appointments. Is there anything else that may be beneficial? Any comments are greatly appreciated! M. Castelli, PA-C
