Correlated Chiropractic Case Studies

Moreau, Harger, Borman – 14 hours of CE

This interactive seminar utilizes a grand rounds format providing interactive sessions in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of chiropractic patients. Furthermore, this seminar encourages active participation of learners through the utilization of hands-on workshops where examination and treatment techniques are demonstrated. Small group interactions are used for higher level thinking centered on the assimilation of case presentations to develop diagnoses and care management protocols. The integration of applicable gross anatomy studies provides learners with the appropriate anatomical relationship to the presented pathology.

This course is 11 hours of live CE plus three hours of online primer content, including an hour of gross anatomy provided by Dr. Bill Borman.

Cultural Diversity and Cultural Competency

Lori Holt – 2 hours of CE

This course will address cultural diversity and why it is important in patient care. This course will enlighten the doctor on how to be cultural competent in the different communities in which the doctor serves. The doctor will learn that by embracing cultural competence and diversity in health care, they can improve the overall quality of care to their patients.

This course is offered in an online format.

Documentation – The Doctor’s Best Defense

Lori Holt – 2 hours of CE

Clinical record keeping is an integral component in good professional practice and the delivery of quality health care. Good clinical record keeping improves continuity of care for all patients and should enhance communication between different health care professionals. This lecture will discuss the importance of documentation in treating all patients to include family members and athletes. Avoiding pitfalls and documentation “red flags” will be discussed.

 This course is offered live.

Emergency Management Leadership

Jerry Holt – 2 hours of CE

This two-hour presentation offers leadership lessons gained from several disciplines where the cost of getting it wrong can result in the loss of life. These lessons applied to leadership will help leaders to concentrate on using all the resources available to make sure that mistakes are identified and trapped before they can result in an error. Case studies from the airline industry and the fire service will be reviewed. Lessons learned will concentrate on getting it right, not on who is right!

This course is offered live.

About Our Sponsor - NCMIC

Most chiropractic physicians (DC) know us for our malpractice insurance. But we offer much more. Our goal is to help doctors do more by offering insurance and finance products to help protect their reputation and their practice.

Our long history of supporting DCs began in 1946 when a small group of chiropractic physicians couldn’t find an insurance company that would sell them the malpractice insurance they needed. This determined group created a company that would protect them and their fellow chiropractic physicians, specializing in matters specific to DCs.

Since then, our commitment to chiropractors has never wavered. And to help doctors do more, we’ve continued to broaden our products and services to provide solutions to the financial concerns that may arise at their practices including: equipment financing, business credit card, credit card processing, premium financing, business and personal insurance.

Each day we live by our promiseWe Take Care of Our Own.
