This program will focus on four distinct topics that Athletic Trainers have indicated they would like to learn more about.
- Reduction of Shoulder Dislocations will discuss the prompt management of glenohumeral dislocations and offer suggestions for minimizing patient discomfort that may be associated with shoulder dislocation.
- The Evaluation and Management of Hip/Groin Injuries will clarify the complexity of this joint and discuss the common clinical findings in order to improve decision making.
- The Evaluation and Management of Shoulder Injuries will discuss common findings associated with shoulder injuries in order to improve clinical decision making and treatment of common shoulder pathology.
- Sport Specialization is a growing concern for athletes and Athletic Trainers and identification of single sport training adaptations may help to prevent more significant injury

All individuals who affect the content of continuing education activities are required to disclose to the audience any real or apparent conflict of interest related to the activity. The activity faculty is further required to disclose discussion of off-label/investigational uses in their presentations. These disclosures will be made to the audience at
the time of the activity.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by University Orthopaedic Associates, LLC (UOA) and the Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey (ATSNJ). UOA and ATSNJ are jointly accredited by the Board of Certification to provide continuing education for Athletic Trainers. This activity has been accredited for 2 EBP Units. Athletic Trainers should claim only those educational credits that they actually
were involved in.
