There are relatively few educational opportunities for nurses who wish to participate in spine care specialty training. For those taking care of patients with spine pathology, a fundamental knowledge base and a similar language and terminology will enhance communication among practitioners and ultimately improve patient care and outcomes. This one-day course will review spine anatomy and terminology. There will be discussion about various spine pathologies and procedures. Participants will be introduced to topics related to physical exam, perioperative complications, psychosocial aspects of perioperative care and pain management. A multidisciplinary faculty will present information about the role of interventional spine techniques, physical therapy and chiropractic care. Faculty will emphasize the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients with spine pathology.
