How to Treat Neck and Spine Injuries in Urgent Care Centers
30 MINUTES
0.5 CE CREDITS

Neck pain is a complaint commonly encountered in urgent care. Many patients, from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, will present to an urgent care center with a chief complaint of neck pain and the discomfort can be a debilitating to a patient. It is the providers responsibility to appropriately evaluate and manage the condition.
UCCs differ in that they treat all ages of patients, from the very young to the elderly. Clinicians must be able to locate and determine the etiology and severity of the injury in patients with acute neck pain. This is especially true for the very young and geriatric populations. A thorough history and physical examination, and a heightened awareness of any red flags that signal a more serious underlying serious condition should be used for treating this population. This systemic approach ensures that medical decisions and treatment options are proper to the individual patient who presents with neck pain.

Understanding Chest Trauma and Abdominal Injuries in Urgent Care Centers
30 MINUTES
0,50 CE CREDITS

Chest trauma and abdominal injuries are modern major health problems with a high mortality rate and are both life-threatening conditions often involving other anatomical regions requiring concurrent diagnosis and treatment. Blunt chest trauma produces 25% of traumatic deaths, contributing to the 50% of global mortality caused by trauma. Blunt chest trauma is commonly associated with multiple-organ damage that favors catastrophic patient outcome. Abdominal injuries are a frequent diagnosis in multiple trauma, and the presence of extra-abdominal injuries and sepsis produces a significant effect on the outcome. The standard management of chest trauma and abdominal injuries may become multidisciplinary through patient transportation from urgent care to surgery and then in ICU. Early diagnosis and initial assertive management within the urgent care setting are the keys in reducing morbidity and mortality. Course expiration date: 3/10/2026
