The “Advanced Examination and Treatment for Selected Shoulder Conditions” course presented by North American Seminars is an advanced-level course that aims to enhance the clinician’s differential diagnosis and treatment skills of selected shoulder conditions. The advanced educational course is intended for the experienced clinician. The live, multi-day workshop will provide an in-depth scientific and clinical basis (evidence-based practice), the clinician will enhance their ability to develop more precise treatment plans to achieve functional outcomes.

According to the online course description, special emphasis will be placed on current surgical, examination, and treatment trends, and discussions and presentations will occur regarding some controversial selected shoulder conditions. Evidence-based information regarding failures, complications, and mistakes that have occurred during the last 40 years of examining and treating patients with shoulder problems. In addition, several news trends in surgical procedures for rotator cuff tears and repairs, instability surgeries, SLAP lesions and biceps tenotomy versus tenodesis will be described and examined.

The online course description notes a number of course objectives, including developing differential diagnosis skills to rule in/out specific shoulder conditions and selecting and evaluating examination techniques for examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and prognosis of the shoulder for patient wellness. Additional course objectives include: analyzing case studies to be presented and discussed to develop clinical reasoning skills; identifying and demonstrating treatment interventions that provide the best practice patterns for shoulder conditions; and identifying resources available to research current best practices.

North American Seminars will be conducting this 2-day workshop September 27 to 28 in New Jersey and November 1 to 2 in Washington state. For additional course information, visit
