OS7047-14 - Clinical Trial Methods  (details)

Course Number: OS7047-14
Course Title: Clinical Trials Methods
Course Date: May 7-9, 2014
Course Sponsors: American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation, Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research
Course Directors: 
Brent Ward, DDS, MD, FACS, Sean Edwards, DDS, MD

Course Overview
The course is open to any Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon with an interest in study design including residents, fellow, faculty, and private practitioners. More specifically, it is intended for OMS interested in designing a clinical trial and developing a study protocol.  It will also be of value to practitioners who must critically evaluate the literature of published clinical trials and assess the merits of each trial and the implications for the care and treatment of patients.  Ideally, a resident and a faculty mentor pair will attend the course. Residents will also have the opportunity to interact with course faculty and faculty from other programs who are in attendance. A limited number of dental students who have been accepted into and OMS residency program or those who have a strong interest in attending an OMS residency program are also invited to register for the course.

Course Objectives
The Clinical Trials Methods course objective is to provide a broad overview of clinical trial design with a focus on the phase III trial.  The National Cancer Institute defines a phase III trial as: "A study to compare the results of people taking a new treatment with the results of people taking the standard treatment (for example, which group has better survival rates or fewer side effects)."  The course will combine both lectures and breakout sessions where participants will, under the guidance of the course faculty, design a clinical trial for a pre-assigned topic. The designs will include statistical methods, a budget, potential funding sources, and a publication plan.  At the end of the course, each group will present and defend their study design.  Each group's study design will be evaluated and scored by course faculty. You will be assigned to a breakout session prior to the course date. The breakout groups and their leaders include:

o    Dentoalveolar/Implant: Joe Cillo, DMD, MPH jecdna@aol.com

o    Pathology/Cancer: Jasjit Dillon, DDS, MD dillonj5@u.washington.edu

o    TMJ: Gary Bouloux, DDS, MD, gbouloux@hotmail.com

o    Craniofacial Trauma: Paul Tiwana, Paul.Tiwana@UTSouthwestern.edu

 

Breakout group members will be contacted by their group leader who will work with them to select a clinical trial proposal topic prior to the course. After registering for the course please list breakout sessions in order of preference and email to Michelle Jones mrjones@umich.edu. While every effort will be made to assign you to the group of your choosing, group assignment will be made on a first come first served basis.

A455-15 - Dental Hygiene Study Club May & Sept 2014
 (details)

Course Number: A455-15
Course Title: 2014 Dental Hygiene CE Club

Two Courses for the Price of One!
DAY ONE

Course Date:    
May 9, 2014

Speaker: 
Dr. Lisa Knowles resolves foundational communication problems associated with provider-patient relations as well as doctor-team relations. Her experience as a general practice resident, associate, practice owner, entrepreneur, professor, wife, and mother provides multiple perspectives in her quest to help people build better relationships to satisfy their personal needs and wants. Dr. Knowles has a degree in Communication and Dentistry and is an adjunct professor at the University of Detroit Mercy Dental School. She provides care in Charlotte, Michigan and offers small business and corporate communication consulting through her business, IntentionalDental Consulting. She shares much of her visionary thinking on her own blog site at Beyond32Teeth.com

Course Overview:
-The Mouth as a Health Indicator: Although we recognize an unhealthy mouth can indicate an unhealthy body, we are often unsure of next step initiatives to get our patients onto the road to health. Dr. Knowles offers a way to transcend our traditional tooth-fixing roles and invigorates our profession with her tried and true success stories as a provider who thinks beyond 32 teeth. Dr. Knowles reviews the clinical oral manifestations of stress, disease, and behavior types throughout the session and follows up with proven approaches to connect with these patients. She provides ice-breaking communication scripts to achieve an open dialogue with patients and helps get to the root cause of their disease.

-What You Say Determines What You Pay: Case acceptance is challenging when words clumsily come out of our mouths. Our confidence disappears despite having a great deal of knowledge to share with our patients. With jumbled words, patients become uneasy and case acceptance declines. When patients do not accept treatment, the overall production in the office dips. Without revenue, the practice is unable to afford to pay higher wages and raises become sporadic if at all. If your goal is to make more money and feel confident in delivering messages, Dr. Knowles will review specific word usage and the A.W.E. business technique to help you get the right words out of your mouth. At the same time, she will discuss the importance of word choices in creating the optimal patient relationship. By improving your relationships with your patients, she will show you how to increase your case acceptance and ultimately increase your take home pay.

Course Objectives:

-The Mouth as a Health Indicator: learn to incorporate a Beyond 32 Teeth approach to caring for patients with root cause analysis, learn how to collaborate with professionals to address comprehensive patient needs, Learn how to use the A.W.E. technique to improve communication

-What You Say Determines What You Pay: gain confidence in word choice, establish optimal patient relationships, increase case acceptance, understand association between communication and productivity as it relates to the financial health of a practice

"Bridging the Gap: Treating a Patient with Autism" (Morning Session)

Speaker:  
Karen Raposa, RDH, MBA is a registered dental hygienist and mother of a son with autism. She has written textbook chapters, magazine articles, and continuing education materials on patients with autism and developmental disabilities. Ms. Raposa lectures internationally at professional dental and dental hygiene meetings. But perhaps Karen's greatest contribution to our body knowledge is her passion for helping us learn more about working with special needs patients, more specifically those with autism. Karen's personal insight into autism, her compassion for people stricken with this disorder, and her extensive product knowledge, coupled with a real world understanding of both clinical challenges and the corporate world, provide a unique perspective that we can all learn from.

Course Overview:
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is now reporting that 1 in every 88 children today is born with some form of autism, a disease that affects an individual's ability to communicate, socialize, and in some cases function independently on a day-to-day basis. Practitioners are finding patients who are challenges with these diseases in their practice on a more routine basis than ever before. The need to better understand these patients and their unique abilities and gifts has never been greater.

This course provides a review of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the reasons why practitioners need to better understand these unique patients. A review of how to properly assess the patient’s abilities will be conducted. Techniques for treatment and a review of technology and creativity that might be used will be explored. A comprehensive documented home care regimen that should be provided to caretakers will be discussed. Guidelines will be given for practitioners on how to easily incorporate these special patients into their practice and make their career more rewarding than they ever imagined it could be.

Course Objectives:
- Generate a basic understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Provide a review of how to properly assess the patients abilities
- Establish and review techniques for treatment that encompass creativity
- Provide guidelines on how to easily incorporate the patient with ASD into a practice

P155-14 - 29th Annual Jarabak Lecture: Enhancing Your TAD Experience -- A Multi-faceted Approach  (details)

Course Number: P155-14
Course Title: 2014 Annual Jarabak Lecture: Enhancing Your TAD Experience -- A Multi-faceted Approach
Course Date: May 16
, 2014 (Friday)

Featured Speakers: Dr. Sebastian Baumgaertel, DMD, MsD, FRCD(C)

Dr. Baumgaertel received his dental degree from the University of Bonn, Germany, where he later assumed a teaching and research position in the Policlinic for Prosthetic Dentistry. He received his orthodontic education at Case Western Reserve University. He now holds the position of Clinical Associate Professor there and is the director of the subspeciality clinic for skeletal anchorage. He also instructs the orthodontic biomechanics course. He maintains a private practice in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Baumgaertel has lectured nationally and internationally on orthodontic mini-implants and on Cone Beam Computed Tomography. He has published multiple scientific articles and is author and co-editor of two textbooks: Mini-implants in Orthodontics -- Innovative Anchorage Concepts and Self-ligating Brackets: Current Concepts and Techniques. He serves as a member of the editorial review board of the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and acts as an ad-hoc reviewer for The Angle Orthodontist, The Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, Clinical Oral Implants Research and other highly-respected journals.

Course Overview
TADs have entered the orthodontic mainstream -- there is no doubt about it. However, much of the initial excitement seems to have faded amongst practitioners, often times leaving behind a somewhat bitter taste consisting of unexplained TAD failures, out of control cases, frustrated patients, and other unexpected results. This is unfortunate and avoidable as TADs may be the most important orthodontic innovation of the past decade and as such can and should be part of every state-of-the-art orthodontic practice.

In the 2014 Jarabak Lecture, Dr. Baumgaertel will share his evidence based principles and clinical techniques that have stood the test of time and really work. You will learn the various factors that can impact your treatment success and when controlled, will make the difference betweeen success and failure. Let one of the most respected educators in this field help you take your mini-implant practice to the next level and gain the confidence you need to treat a wide variety of indications with a high level of success.

Course Objectives
Participants will learn:

  • The best sites to place an orthodontic mini-implant
  • How to best place the implant at the selected site
  • The keys to maximizing clinical success rates
  • How loading the mini-implant correctly can make all the difference
  • How to implement TADs into your daily practice
  • The informed consent process
  • Simple and efficient biomechanics
  • How to use mini-implants in different clinical situations (case presentations)
