Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
AutismOne, the world’s largest/most comprehensive autism conference, covering autism spectrum disorder and related topics, in conjunction with the American Association of Integrative Medicine (AAIM) and the American Academy of Pediatric Osteopathy, is offering a 23+ unit CME program for health care professionals*, and AAIM is offering the BCIP (Board Certified in Integrative Pediatrics) credential.
Said Teri Arranga, AutismOne’s executive director: “CME programs at AutismOne are very much enjoyed by professionals, who have the opportunity to grow ideas and develop relationships with colleagues who address a variety of scientific disciplines and come from esteemed institutions. The 2016 CME program was robust, and the 2017 program is being expanded to three days, offering even more credits and fascinating education at the same price. This is an important and convenient way for health care practitioners to earn 23+ AMA-approved CME units* plus explore the BCIP credential that inspires confidence in their patient base. Learning about the gamut of more effective interventions for autism and other childhood conditions tells a health care provider’s patients that the practitioner has a greater breadth of knowledge and cares enough about patients to widen academic horizons.”
Dr. Shawn K. Centers, medical director of the CME program for AutismOne, stated: “We want to train more practitioners so more children can be helped. One of the most frequent comments from parents who have attended the AutismOne conferences in the past was about the lack of knowledgeable practitioners in their local geographic area and the burden and expense in traveling to areas where there was a qualified practitioner. From practitioners there was also a very strong feeling that there were not enough programs at which to get adequate training. AutismOne’s focus is not just biomedical, but covers a wide range of approaches, and these areas require knowledge and skill. This CME program will teach a licensed provider the fundamentals of treating a child on the autism spectrum, as well as give a review of integrative principles for the seasoned clinician, in preparation for a nationally recognized credentialed test that will lead to a certification.”
In the general conference lectures, there will be education that provides hope and direction for parents new to the diagnosis of autism, as well as many technical sessions for parents with children with more complex issues. Lectures include “From Nutrition to Neuromodulation: How to restore brain function in autism” and “A Novel Approach to the Reconstitution of the Brain Microbiota.” Featured speakers include Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Suzanne Humphries, MD.
After productive days of learning, parents and physicians alike can enjoy relaxing at festive evening events.
