A New Paradign of Spine Care: Turning Crisis Into Opportunity

The care pathway for people with back pain remains highly variable with too many low value procedures and interventions be-ing performed. This interdisciplinary course is designed to advance the knowledge and skills required to evaluate, classify, and manage spine pathology for patients in a variety of settings. The course will chal-lenge some traditional models of healthcare and build on clinician’s current clinical expertise through lecture, and inter-disciplinary discussion. Current evidence-based models and strategies for both surgical and non-surgical management will be highlighted as well as the importance of collaboration among health care profes-sionals in providing patient centered care. The format will be virtual with opportunity for participants to interact and ask questions with each speaker.
