Mayo Clinic's 7th Annual Sports Medicine for the Primary Care Clinician 2023 CME Conference in Orlando, Florida offers attendees the confidence to accurately diagnose and treat sports-related conditions, as well as injuries sustained during recreational physical activities. This CME course covers appropriate testing and referral criteria, as well as what is on the horizon for diagnosis and treatment. The course also helps to improve the specific skills in physical exam and imaging interpretation that assist in the diagnosis of conditions that may have implications for participation, performance and recovery in sports and recreational physical activities.
This course is designed for athletic trainers, physical therapists, NPs, PAs, sports medicine physicians, family physicians, physiatrists, internists, pediatricians, ER physicians, orthopedists, and medical providers involved in the care and management of athletes and active individuals in clinic or non-operative/non-surgical/non-invasive settings.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Summarize how specific chronic illnesses can affect exercises.
- Identify medications to avoid for athletes and active patients considering sport-specific injuries.
- Emphasize exercise as a form of management for chronic conditions and various musculoskeletal injuries.
- Illustrate and rehearse various assessment strategies that participants can use in clinic to diagnose difficult to discern orthopedic and sport medicine conditions.
