About EVENTS

In light of the current situation, White Plains Hospital has decided to cancel all upcoming events. This was a difficult decision, but one that was made with the safety of our community in mind.
 
We know that there is a lot of anxiety surrounding coronavirus, and we want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, staff and community safe. We ask that for the next few weeks you listen to the Governor’s advice and practice social distancing. While it may feel like you are doing nothing, you are actually playing a huge role to help contain the spread of the virus.  
 
Our team at the Hospital is constantly monitoring the situation and will keep you updated if anything changes. We appreciate your understanding and please stay healthy.

  • Diagnosis and Management of Common Orthopedic Injuries: A Primary Care Update

    Statement of Need
    Orthopedic standards of care assist primary care providers in the treatment of common injuries. When a patient may benefit from a more specialized level of care following an injury, appropriate protocols and referrals help achieve the best possible outcome. This course will help participants identify common injuries in the primary care setting and manage them with the appropriate standards of care.

    Activity Goals
    Orthopedic injuries are on the rise and are a common reason for emergency department visits. These injuries should be diagnosed promptly and accurately to optimize patient outcomes. This activity will review issues that can be effectively managed by a primary care provider versus those needing to be referred to a specialist, and analyze how an interdisciplinary team approach can improve care and outcomes among orthopedic patients.

    Learning Objectives
    After attending this activity, participants will be able to:
    • Describe how to diagnose and treat common problems in the following orthopedic areas: neck and back; foot and ankle; sports medicine; hip and knee; and hand, wrist, and elbow
    • Identify issues that can be effectively managed by a primary caregiver versus those needing to be referred to an orthopedist
    • Explain how to safely treat orthopedic problems that are appropriately treated by a primary care provider following the recommended guidelines.
    • Analyze how an interdisciplinary team approach to orthopedic problems can improve patient care

    Intended Audience
    This activity is specifically designed for those involved in the following settings: Internal/Family Medicine, Sports Medicine, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Emergency Medicine. It is also designed for professionals working in academic settings, including athletic trainers and coaches, as well as other health professionals interested in the diagnosis and management of common orthopedic injuries.

    Accreditation
    In support of improving patient care, Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    Credit Designation
