As a result of this CME activity, participants should be better able to:

1) Incorporate literature review to determine evidence-based best practice in spine care.
2) Evaluate spine cases from a multidisciplinary perspective and achieve consensus formulating treatment plans.
3) In case review format, present surgical cases with good and bad outcomes to provide interactive discussions with an emphasis on reducing care disparities related to diversity of patients - age, ethnic background, etc.
4) Review mechanisms, stabilization, repair and rehabilitation of spinal injuries secondary to trauma.
5) Consider culture, language and health literacy in all patient - provider communications.


Kern H Guppy, Chris Bandy and the planners of this activity have disclosed that they have no financial relationships with a commercial interest that constitute a relevant financial relationship.  

A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.
