ACOEM’s Essentials of Occupational Medicine program will be comprised of approximately 60 individual courses in 15 sections and provides an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the clinical, technical, and professional concepts of the field for the non-specialist or new entrant.
Compression neuropathies are common issues that affect workers. Properly diagnosing these syndromes is critical to treat them early, which will lead to better outcomes. Evidence-based treatments for these conditions continue to be re-examined in the literature, and it may be surprising to the learner what treatment strategies have been shown to change the outcome and which ones do not. This Compression Neuropathies course is designed to be an introduction to compression neuropathies and equip health professionals with an understanding of the job requirements and the functional abilities of patients with these problems.
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:
1. Identify the common compression neuropathies that will be seen by the occupational medicine physician.
2. Understand the anatomy and physiology of the compressed nerves.
3. Conduct proper physical examination techniques and order appropriate tests to diagnose the conditions correctly.
4. Implement appropriate treatment.
5. Know when to refer appropriately.
6. Manage return to work.

As a provider accredited by the ACCME, ACOEM is responsible for ensuring our education is fair and balanced and that any clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. As such, ACOEM must include an original release date and a termination (expiration) date on products. Content must either be reviewed once every three years or expire after three years, which is why courses have an expiration date. This date not only denotes when the course will no longer be available to new users but also includes the final date to claim AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. While there is a possibility that a course will be renewed for an additional three years – and a new expiration date posted – this will not be determined until a review is conducted.
A course that has already been purchased but exceeds the expiration date can still be completed and/or reviewed, but a learner may no longer be able to claim the AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ associated with the course.
