Summer School in Bioinformatics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL - EBI) and will be held during Jun 25 - 29, 2018 at European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Cambridge, England, United Kingdom. The target audience for this medical event is aimed at individuals working across biological sciences who have little or no experience in bioinformatics. Applicants are expected to be at an early stage of using bioinformatics in their research with the need to develop their skills and knowledge further. No previous knowledge of programming / coding is required. This course provides an introduction to the use of bioinformatics in biological research, giving participants guidance for using bioinformatics in their work whilst also providing hands-on training in tools and resources appropriate to their research.Participants will initially be introduced to bioinformatics theory and practice, including best practices for undertaking bioinformatics analysis, data management and reproducibility. To enable specific exploration of resources in their particular field of interest, participants will be divided into focused groups to work on a small project set by EMBL-EBI resource and research staff, ending in a presentation from each group on the final day of the course. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

AOTrauma Course - Basic Principles of Fracture Management is organized by AOTrauma and will be held during Jun 25 - 28, 2018 at Leeds Dental Institute, Leeds, England, United Kingdom. The target audience for this medical event is Orthopaedic surgery, Trauma surgery. The course is based upon a philosophy that good fracture management requires more than the practical skills required to ‘fix’ a fracture. The competent fracture surgeon should understand bone physiology, response to injury and the processes of repair. Good decision-making is the key to fracture management and interaction between participants and a large faculty during lectures, group discussion and practical sessions will help you develop these skills. Practical sessions involve the fixation of common diaphyseal and articular fractures on real size artificial bone models, using AO TK approved instruments and implants. Much of the course content can be aligned to the trauma and orthopaedic component of the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme. Participants will have the opportunity, on request, of completing relevant workplace based assessments. This course is aimed at junior trainees. ATLS training is recommended before attending the course. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Conference Objectives: Major Incident Medical Management and Support : Hospital (HMIMMS) is the leading course for hospital staff responsible for planning, training and managing aspects of a major incident from a hospital perspective, with course objectives including : • The type and incidence of major incidents and therefore the need for proper response and management planning. • Understand and able to implement and follow the seven principles encapsulated in the CSCATTT approach to successfully managing a major incident. • Understand the need for major incident training - focusing on those aspects of the plan which do not occur in day-to-day practice, i.e., command, control, communication and triage. • Able to deliver the medical support needed for major incidents in the hospital setting using the concept of ‘collapsible hierarchy. CPD Points System Revised guidance from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges emphasises that the focus of CPD should be on its quality and reflection of its impact on a clinician’s practice, rather than the amount of time spent on the activity and that the responsibility for identifying CPD requirements rests with the individual and should be based on their personal areas of practice and personal development plan agreed at their annual appraisal. Although one 'CPD credit' will normally equate to one hour of educational activity, the amount of educational activity obtained from a specific event may vary between individuals depending on an individual’s specific learning outcomes. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Kinetic Control - Multi-Joint Synergies in Alignment and Coordination is organized by National Centre of Rehabilitation Education (NCORE) and will be held during Jun 26 - 27, 2018 at Royal Derby Hospital, Derby, England, United Kingdom. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14.0 CPD Credits. This module and all the related Kinetic Control courses, seek to deliver the ability for you to help all patients to move better, feel better and do more. These courses present movement as the vehicle supplying choice in people's life, for life; a perspective-shifting the emphasis away from pain and pathology, placing movement and movement health at the center of intervention strategies. The two days of this particular module, employ a movement focused philosophy to those issues related to alignment and co-ordination, considering how both factors may influence any one individual's movement health. This module evaluates alignment and offers a classification and clinical interpretation of sustained, habitual alignments effect on movement. This evaluation process directs therapists towards a means of establishing a more optimised movement system. The observation and analysis of patterns of muscle synergies in functional tasks is examined and options for retraining more efficient movement strategies are presented. Conference Objectives are : • Display a good understanding of why movement matters to postural alignment and recruitment synergies in functional tasks. • Demonstrate an understanding and ability to observe changes in functional movements that reflect changes in relative stiffness and relative flexibility. • Display an ability to observe posture and classify individuals into a relevant alignment subgroups for the low back, the hip, the neck and the shoulder. • Demonstrate an understanding of the implications of alignment classification to changes in muscle length and recruitment, to potential risk of pain and to movement health in general. • Display an ability to discuss strategies and options to minimise or correct some of the negative causes or consequences of postural alignment change. • Demonstrate the ability to observe function tasks or activities and analyze the pattern of synergist recruitment being used and make a judgment as to whether it is appropriate or aberrant. • Demonstrate the ability to devise a movement retraining strategy to change an aberrant pattern of recruitment into an appropriate pattern of recruitment depending on the task involved and the loading (non-fatiguing movement or fatiguing load) requirements of that task.
Jun 27 - 27, 2018 | CME 6.00 | GBP £175 | Surgery
Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) is organized by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) and will be held on Jun 27, 2018 at Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. The target audience for this medical event is Consultants and Senior Trainees in all surgical specialties. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6 CPD Points. Conference Overview : This is a one day course for Consultant surgeons and posts CCT trainees from all surgical specialties. The course examines the non-technical skills which underpin good operative performance using short talks, video simulated scenarios, an audience response voting system and small group discussions. At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand the theories and research relating to adverse events in surgery and the importance of the non-technical skills in improving performance. They will also be able to use the NOTSS taxonomy to observe, rate and provide feedback on behaviors in the operating room. Aims & Objectives : Technical skills are, of themselves, inadequate to ensure optimal outcome following surgery. This course aims to address the non-technical skills that are the essential cognitive and interpersonal aspects of operative surgery underpinning technical actions and optimizing and enhancing the performance of individual surgeons and through them, the surgical team. Learning Outcomes : On completion of this course, participants should be able to: • Demonstrate an understanding of the relevance of non-technical skills and error management to surgical performance • Observe and discuss examples of good and poor behaviours in the operating theatre; • Use a taxonomy of non-technical skills • Rate behaviors using the NOTSS rating scale • Provide structured feedback to trainees/other consultant surgeons based on observations • Discuss how non-technical failures can lead to poor clinical outcomes. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
