Clinical Solutions for Mitochondrial and Metabolic Dysfunction
IFM’s Hormone APM will take place immediately before Bioenergetics (Formerly Energy) 2020. Attend both for six full days of educational content that will change the way you see patients. REGISTER FOR HORMONE APM
Energy drives all biologic activity—within individual atoms and molecules, as part of cellular physiology, up through organ-system and whole-person functioning, and, ultimately, the entire biosphere. The last 20 years have brought us dramatic breakthroughs in understanding about how mitochondria work and what they require for enduring optimal function. Genetic and epigenetic vulnerabilities have been discovered; the effects of toxic environmental exposures on energy production have been revealed; and connections between dysregulation in energy production and many clinical conditions have been described.
Physiology is one side of the coin, but we are also learning about the larger energy landscape, including the mechanisms underlying the clinical effects of magnetic fields and microcurrent, hands-on therapies such as manipulation and craniosacral, acupuncture, and the profound power of the therapeutic partnership.
This Advanced Practice Module will investigate the science of mitochondrial function and dysfunction, the impact of oxidative stress, as well as nutritional and lifestyle influences on both health and disease. Clinicians will learn how to regenerate compromised mitochondrial function and how to address the varied underlying causes of fatigue, depression, headache, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases. Evidence-based modalities to address pain will be introduced, and the profound potential of the healing partnership will be both explored and experienced.
IFM PLANNING CALENDAR
Clinical competencies to be mastered through the module:
To obtain a CME Certificate/Certificate of Completion for this course you must, by Saturday, July 25, 2020, complete:
A certificate is automatically issued upon passing the course assessment. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
IFM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
MD/DO: The Institute for Functional Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 17.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
ACCME-accredited courses for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are eligible for Category 2 credit through the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). To obtain the Category 2 credit, please email, fax or mail certificates of attendance to the AOA Department of Client and Member Services. For more information click here.
ABIM MOC Points Available: Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 17.25 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
DC: Northwestern Health Sciences University (NWHSU) provides continuing education credit for chiropractic physicians. IFM submitted an application to NWHSU who applied to all states, except Alabama, Arizona, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. For a complete list of states and approval hours, please contact email@example.com.
ND: Generally, naturopathic state licensing boards accept continuing education courses accredited through the ACCME. Please contact your state naturopathic board to inquire if CME credits from ACCME-accredited organizations are accepted.
Nursing Professional: For the purpose of re-certification with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), contact hours approved through ACCME are accepted. Please contact your state nursing board to inquire if continuing education credits from ACCME-accredited organizations are accepted.
PA: The American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) accepts all continuing education credits from organizations accredited by the ACCME. Please contact your state physician assistant board to inquire if continuing education credits from ACCME-accredited organizations are accepted.
RD: The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) did not pre-approve this course. Pre-approval is not required for ACCME-accredited courses. CDR automatically accepts continuing education credits obtained from ACCME-accredited organizations. Please check with your healthcare licensing board to inquire if prior approval by CDR is required to obtain continuing education credits for an activity despite this circumstance.
Other: Please contact your healthcare licensing board to inquire if continuing education credits from ACCME-accredited organizations are recognized and accepted toward fulfilling your continuing education requirements.
*CME credits are subject to change.
In our recent study, Functional Medicine Practices, Opportunities, Challenges, and Emerging Trends, we uncovered a common need among practitioners for robust practice implementation training. In response, we have begun to enhance each of our Advanced Practice Modules (APMs) with additional content on translating the module into action. New presentations will explore topics ranging from clinical pearls to billing and coding compliance for insurance-based practices.
