ACFAOM’s 2015 Annual Clinical Conference will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriot, Orlando, Florida.

And it is FREE to ACFAOM members as a membership benefit. We are collaborating with APMA this year to present a case based, office based, and evidence based educational program the day before the APMA Annual Scientific Meeting. This will not be the usual passive education provided at most podiatric conferences. You will be an engaged and active participant in the whole learning process. The faculty members act as coaches, and encourage participants to present their own ideas about the cases presented.

High, inside starting point and intramedullary reaming are keys for Jones fracture fixation in athletes
Orthopedics Today
Jones fractures are fractures of the proximal fifth metatarsal metaphyseal-diaphyseal junction that are common in young athletic populations, particularly elite athletes. The poor blood supply to the fifth metatarsal has been well documented, and Jones fractures develop along a watershed area between the intramedullary nutrient and metaphyseal arteries. Surgical fixation is indicated in cases of failed nonoperative treatment, re-fracture, nonunion or when more rapid recovery is required typically in active individuals.

Reemphasizing the importance of watching your patients walk
Podiatry Today
With a busy schedule and trying to keep up with your record keeping, it sometimes becomes very routine to only examine a patient’s foot in a static position. Unfortunately, it is easy to become narrow minded and solely focus on the foot. In doing so, many of us may even fail to have the patient stand up and bear weight on the foot. Just as important as simple weightbearing is watching your patient walk.

FiercePracticeManagement

PRACTICE MANAGEMENT PEARLS FROM AAPPM


Social media do's and don'ts for medical practices
Physician's Practice
Don't avoid social media just because of HIPAA fears. Social networking, done right, can bring multiple benefits to your practice. Patients have come to expect unprecedented access to their physicians, especially through technology-based means; a large part of that is social media. However, many physicians are leery of wading into uncharted waters that have the potential to open them up to legal risk and possibly blemish their reputation. Yet refusing to embrace social media could ultimately harm your practice. Younger tech-savvy patients expect to see their physicians’ online. If they don't, they may choose to leave your practice for one that has a more robust online presence.
