Optional Workshop: 12-Lead EKG Interpretation for Primary Care Providers

Sally K. Miller, PhD, APN, FAANP

8:30 AM – 11:45 AM

Offers 3 CE/CME Credits and .25 Pharmacology contact hour
Description:

This workshop will take the participant through the steps of interpreting a 12-Lead ECG necessary for the primary care provider. This interactive workshop will include didactic content and case studies to increase participants’ knowledge and skills for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs in adult patients. During the workshop participants will practice hands-on activities to increase their confidence in applying a systematic approach to interpretation.

Learning Objectives:
After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Review the principles behind the 12 views on the electrocardiogram (ECG) & how they align with frontal, augmented, & precordial leads.
  2. Interpret axis deviation, if present, on the 12-Lead ECG.
  3. Identify possible pathological events that explain abnormalities on the 12-Lead ECG.
  4. Utilize a systematic approach for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs
 
Optional Spirometry Workshop: Spirometry for Primary Care Nurse Practicioners

Mary Lou Hayden, RN, MS, FNP-BC, AE-C
Michelle R. Dickens, MSN, RN, FNP-C, AE-C

1:30 PM – 4:45 PM

Offers 3 CE/CME Credits
Description:

This workshop takes the participant through the information and skills needed for the primary care provider to incorporate spirometry into daily clinical practice. Spirometry basics are presented, followed by participant having an opportunity to perform this test on a fellow participant using an actual spirometer. The workshop concludes with case study discussions relating a case presentation and interpretation of the spirometry.

Learning Objectives:

After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Review potential indications for office based spirometry 
  2. Describe how to use FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC measurements in the diagnosis of common respiratory disease 
  3. Perform routine spirometry
  4. Recognize abnormal spirometry graphs and identify common conditions they represent
  5. Integrate spirometry into primary care practice to enhance patient care for patients with repiratory complaints
 
Optional Kidney Workshop

Denise Link, MPAS, PA-C, FNKF

1:30 PM – 4:45 PM

Offers 3 CE/CME Credits and 1 Pharmacology contact hour
Description
:
Acid-base, hyperkalemia and hyponatremia disorders can be complex and difficult to diagnose and understand.

Using patient examples, Denise K Link, MPAS, PA-C, FNKF, of the National Kidney Foundation and American Academy of Nephrology PAs has stories that will enable you to approach any ABG, hyperkalemia with confidence.

This interactive case presentation will provide a step wise approach using patient examples to help diagnose the underlying acid/base disorder(s) leading to comprehension between compensated and non-compensated disorders, hyperkalemia and/or hyponatremia etiology.

Learning Objectives:

After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Interpret ABG with confidence after review of stepwise approach for diagnosis acid/base disorders
  2. Discuss differences between compensated and non-compensated acid-base disorders
  3. Appreciate iatrogenic medications that lead to electrolyte disorders
  4. Identify common etiologies of hyperkalemia and subsequent treatment options
  5. Recognize algorithm necessary when approaching any hyponatremia
