BE THE SPINE EXPERT!

I just recevied this email in my box this morning.  Looking for opportunities and building relationships is critical to long term practice growth.  If you need help getting this rolling with the medical people in your community, call me.  I will be creating this presentation as the 2nd in the MD Lecture Series and submitting for CME ap.  This discussion will be on cervicogenic headache, below is the outline.  These will be 20-30 minute talks on two separate shifts.

Dr. Owens,

Linda, our nurse manager loves this idea. We feel doing something for the nurses themselves is a good way to start the inservices this year. Let me know what dates you had in mind and I'll set it up. Thanks so much for thinking of the NICU.

The audio consultation with Dr. Zair Fishkin, orthopedist, was cut short for some reason. That has been fixed.  Make sure that you listen to the interview all the way through.  He talks specifically about what he expects from the chiropractors that he works with.  It can be found in the Members Section under MD Audio Library.

2010 Outstanding Paper: Medical and Interventional Science

The Chiropractic Hospital-based Interventions Research Outcomes (CHIRO) Study: a randomized controlled trial on the effectiveness of clinical practice guidelines in the medical and chiropractic management of patients with acute mechanical low back pain

The Spine Journal 10 (2010) 1055–1064

PURPOSE:

To determine if full CPGs-based study care (SC) results in greater improvement in functional outcomes than family physician–directed usual care (UC) in the treatment of AM-LBP.

STUDY DESIGN/SETTING:

A two-arm, parallel design, prospective, randomized controlled clinical trial using blinded outcome assessment. Treatment was administered in a hospital-based spine program outpatient clinic.

CONCLUSIONS:

This is the first reported randomized controlled trial comparing full CPG-based treatment, including spinal manipulative therapy administered by chiropractors, to family physician–directed UC in the treatment of patients with AM-LBP. Compared to family physician–directed UC, full CPG-based treatment including CSMT is associated with significantly greater improvement in condition-specific functioning.

New E-Course Posted

The first e-learning module has been posted on the MD Relationship Program Web site.  The article is from a survey that was put out to 1000 orthopedic surgeons in North America that was publised in Spine 2009.  This is an interesting look inside the surgeons mind.  The short quiz at the end will help you to learn the high points of the paper. This is a very important article and the information inside will help you to grow better relationships with medical professionals in your area.
