Specialty Research Rotation – Acute vs Chronic Schmorl’s Nodes
A review of the current understanding between acute versus chronic Schmorl’s Nodes in the human spine. Since these conditions are endplate fractures and can occur as a result of a single traumatic event or as a response to a chronic degenerative condition, it is critical to understand the assessment and diagnosis of this condition as it relates to the management of spine pain. This topic includes specific peer reviewed medically indexed papers outlining the contemporary understanding of Schmorl’s Nodes. Participants are required to listen to a short introduction, complete a short pre-test followed by review of all research papers, providing a written summary of each using the Cornell Notes System of organization with a final post-test documenting completing of learning objectives.
Short introduction video with audio requires approximately 30 minutes, review and writing of research reviews will require approximately 2 hours. Total time is 2.5 hours.
A final examination consisting of 10 questions requiring a passing grade of 80%.
