Seattle Science Foundation Spine Conference

Seattle Science Foundation, James Tower, 6th Floor
Swedish Cherry Hill
The Seattle Science Foundation Spine Conference Series is a reoccurring educational conference held for health care providers who treat spine disorders. Experts in the field will provide didactic lectures on up-to-date content regarding current and emerging interventions for spinal conditions, focusing on identification, treatment, and improvement in patient care, both surgical and non-surgical.
Evaluation and treatments of spinal conditions continues to drastically change as new technologies and therapies emerge. For this reason, there remains a tremendous need for continued education in the training of current and future health care providers regarding knowledge and interventions for spine disorders. To address these deficits and advancing challenges, the Seattle Science Foundation Spine Conference Series will provide didactic lectures with Q&A sessions led by experts in the field with the focus of improving patient care, treatment, and outcomes.
This symposium is intended for neurosurgeons, physiatrists, neuroradiologists, advanced practice clinicians and other sub-specialists in the treatment of spinal diseases in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, California and Alaska.
By attending this course, the participant will provide better patient care through an increased ability to:
- Apply treatment options for a variety of spine disorders which are commonly seen at the Swedish Spine Program.
- Implement protocols related to new research in the management of spine patients.
- Discuss treatment outcomes with patient.
- Compare and contrast technological options.
- Participate in developing guidelines for treating spine patients that will improve patient care.
Objectives will be listed for each session depending on the topic selected.
