Spaulding Virtual Grand Rounds 2013-2014: Preventing Injury and Enhancing Recovery

These eight one-hour, live and on-demand sessions on physical medicine and rehabilitation are presented by experts from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and broadcast from Boston, MA.

This second annual Virtual Grand Rounds Series is designed to change how clinically-active physiatrists handle common medical problems affecting patients. The series focuses specifically on enhancing clinical practice related to: diagnosis and management of athletic pubalgia; prevention of complications from transforaminal epidural injections; development of a multidisciplinary cancer survivorship team that includes cancer rehabilitation; innovative treatment strategies for performing artists; evaluation and management of hip and lumbopelvic pain in female athletes; advances in understanding burn rehabilitation outcomes and complications; and emerging therapeutic options to prevent and treat spinal cord injury-induced osteoporosis.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  • Explain a systematic approach to diagnosis of groin pain in the athlete.
  • Describe the complications associated with Transforaminal epidural injections.
  • Describe the mechanical differences between rearfoot and forefoot strike running.
  • Identify the key recommendations from the Institute of Medicine’s report “From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition”.
