University of Wisconsin Multidisciplinary Spine Didactics and Lab

Madison, WI US
November 8, 2019 to November 10, 2019

Statement of Need

Neurological surgery is an area of medicine that requires exceptional precision.  Surgical labs such as this course allow medical professionals the opportunity to practice skills in a risk-free environment.  Participants will get the opportunity to study the intricacies of real anatomy.  For many participants, this course will provide experience performing real surgery when they would not be permitted to practice on patients, providing them with a better framework for understanding the activities of the OR and the decisions of a surgeon.

Initial learning will take place with foundational case discussions. The cadaver lab provides a unique opportunity to apply knowledge to cadaver specimen anatomy and the skills needed to surgically correct pathophysiology. The unique anatomy and pathology of humans cannot be effectively replicated. The skills gained from detailed, planned cadaver study is the gold stand for learning real applications of medical knowledge and generating understanding and continued learning in practice.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for Neurological Surgery and Orthopedics physicians, midlevel providers, residents, and researchers interested in improving patient outcomes, interprofessional teamwork, and gaining hands-on experience in spine surgery techniques.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of practice-based learning and improvement, medical knowledge, and patient care and procedural skills.

This activity also focuses on the Interprofessional competencies of roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communcation, and teams/teamwork.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this educational, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify 3 areas of cervical and 3 areas on lumbar spine care improvement.
  2. Demonstrate appropriate anatomical landmarks for safe placement of FDA approved instrumentation.
  3. Identify 5 complications associated with spine approaches and 5 mechanisms to avoid them.
