St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care specialists lend their clinical expertise to CME program

The first annual Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Update for the Primary Care Provider was held Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Moravian College in Bethlehem. The program was attended by primary care physicians, nurses and advanced practitioners from St. Luke’s University Health Network and throughout the region.

Expert faculty included members of St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care team, including orthopedic surgeons, primary care sports medicine specialists, and William G. De Long, Jr., MD, Chairman, Orthopedic Care & Sports Medicine, St. Luke’s University Health Network. Topics included physical examination techniques, osteoarthritis management, indications for advanced imaging, and concussion management.

“We had great feedback from attendees on the content, format and the speakers for our first CME program,” says coordinator John Ostrowski, Athletic Training-Sports Medicine Relationships, St. Luke’s University Health. Some of the comments included:

  • “I believe the conference was a succinct view of some of the more common medical situations faced by the primary care provider on a near day-to-day basis, from common work-up at the bedside of multiple joint and spinal complaints to the more specialized situations of return-to-play with concussions and skin lesions.”
  • “This was the best conference I have ever attended. Clear, concise, helpful info was provided. Every speaker kept to the topic and was excellent. Thank you.”
  • “This was an excellent conference for the primary care provider to ‘refresh’ on exam techniques as well as Radiographic workups for each area. I would definitely come to the next one!”
