Title:  How to prevent your student athlete from becoming a lumbar spine patient

Presenter: Andrew Cannon, PT, SCS, MHS, CSCS

Target Audience: Athletic Trainers

Description: 

Low back pain (LBP) is a public health problem and the prevalence of LBP in adolescents has increased in recent years. LBP lifetime prevalence for ages 9-16 is 39% and from age 15 on prevalence is very similar to adults. Still we don't often think about adolescents and LBP? Not only is there considerable impact of LBP among adolescents in daily life, (e.g school absenteeism and reduced physical activity) but also due to the relationship between adolescent LBP and the development of disabling LBP in the future. Treating adolescents with LBP as adults will likely result in less than ideal outcomes. We all are aware that the predominant diagnoses are quite different as are the biopsychosocial drivers. In the busy athletic training room setting management and care for your athlete with LBP, as well as when to refer out can be a challenge for both the high school and collegiate student athlete. After a review of the anatomy, biomechanics and the value of historical biomechanical predictors, we will propose a management algorithm that is actionable, allows clarity, direction of care and the need for referral to other healthcare providers. This will be reinforced with case studies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare and contrast LBP between adults and adolescents
  2. Describe the biomechanical and biopsychosocial risk factors related to adolescent and adult LBP
  3. Describe via case studies the application of the proposed low back pain management algorithm for the your student athletes

Title: The NATA 3rd Party Reimbursement Initiative

Presenter: Joe Greene, MS, ATC 

 

Target Audience: Athletic Trainers

Description: 

Athletic trainers deliver skilled healthcare services to athletes and the physically active population in high volume with an exceptionally diverse and versatile skillset.

Rarely, have athletic trainers, or their employers, attempted to submit claims for medically necessary care to insurance providers despite their scope of practice allowing them to deliver these services.

Because athletic trainers are nearly universally trained in collegiate environments where services are rarely billed, there has been limited exposure to the critical components of billing insurance companies successfully.

To help address this, and to help secure reimbursement long term, the NATA established the NATA Third Party Reimbursement Initiative in 2018 to help educate athletic trainers and athletic training leadership to advocate effectively and best move this effort forward. This presentation provides background on the current status of the project.

 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this learning experience, participants will be able to; 

  1. Summarize the current status of the NATA Third Party Reimbursement Initiative.
  2. Recognize the term medical necessity and the need for it to be present in order to bill third party payors successfully.
  3. Analyze the nuances of how a practice act, documentation, and implementation all most be coordinated optimally in order to bill successfully.
  4. Analyze the need for consistent and effective advocacy with both employers and insurance providers.

Title: Steps to improve Documentation for the Athletic Trainer

Presenter: Ed Strapp, FP-C, NRP, ATC

 

Target Audience: Athletic Trainers

Description: 

Ask many Athletic Trianers, and they'll tell you documentation is one of the least favorite parts of their job. However, next to patient care, it is one of the most important things ATs do. Many Athletic Trainers do not appreciate the varied and critical purposes served by their patient care documentation. Some simply see their patient care reports as documents filed in their office or casually tossed aside or ignored by the physician they refer their athlete too. Some see these documents more as evidence that "can and will be used against them" in a quality improvement review. A deeper appreciation for improved documentation requires a better understanding of its uses, applications and the vital components of Clinical and operational aspects as well as legal and financial pieces.

Title: Lateral Epicondylagia - Comprehensive Assessment and Management

Presenter: Terry Pratt, PT, MS, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT

Location: On Demand - Asynchronous

Target Audience: Athletic Trainers

Description: 

This course will describe the current evidence regarding assessment and management of lateral elbow tendinopathies.  Significant changes have occurred in understanding of the mechanisms and pathology of lateral elbow pain.  Although this is typically termed “lateral epicondylitis” or “tennis elbow”, recent investigation has determined that this condition is not typically active inflammation but a tissue response and changes due to too little or too much loading or a result of abrupt fluctuations in loading of the tissue in combination with suboptimal biomechanics.  Traditional treatment has included the use of eccentric exercises, R.I.C.E., frictions and stretching can be provocative.  Alternative treatment approaches will be presented in combination with describing the impact of aging, vascularity, collagen makeup, and tendon type and how they impact clinical decision-making regarding management and treatment.

 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this learning experience, participants will be able to;

-List major and minor contributing factors predisposing patients to lateral elbow tendinopathy.

-Describe evidence-based test clusters for identifying structures contributing to elbow pain and discomfort.

-Describe evidence-based therapies for the treatment of lateral elbow tendinopathy.
