this program is available via Webinar only.

Join us this fall for a one-of-a-kind conference featuring speakers from Charles George VA Medical Center; EmergeOrtho: Blue Ridge Division; AntiFragile Physical Therapy; Patient Advocacy NC, PLLC; and Southeastern Sports Medicine.

You will have the opportunity to learn more about ERAS in the orthopaedic community, virtual reality therapy, common spinal conditions, pain management from the physical therapist’s perspective, nurse coaching for the orthopaedic patient, Achilles repairs and injuries that mimic ankle sprains. You will hear about the orthopaedic journey from a patient’s perspective.

Along with learning some exciting things about orthopaedic care, you will have the opportunity to network with other orthopedic care providers. This will be a continuing education activity for nurses and physical therapists to achieve contact hours. We look forward to seeing you there!
