The PrimeCare O&P Network will bring a curriculum of educational offerings to the Nashville Convention Center in Tennessee June 5-6, including an expanded schedule of pedorthic classes that will serve up three additional hours of continuing education credits, for a total of 15 hours. The course list includes a six-session series focusing on pedorthic management of the diabetic foot.
The classes will provide timely guidance regarding the recent Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) ruling that pedorthists and pedorthic facilities must satisfy mandatory accreditation requirements prior to September 31, 2009, according to PrimeCare O&P.
Other offerings include an i-LIMB™ Hand practitioner-training certification course and an administrative/management session focusing on the new CMS surety bond requirement and its potential effect on O&P practitioners, their companies, and the industry.
In addition to the 15-hour pedorthic track, PrimeFare’s prosthetics, orthotics, and administrative/management curriculums each offer a total of 12 hours of CEU credits.
