The PrimeFare West Regional Scientific Symposium, held March 7–8, returned for a second consecutive year to the Denver Marriott City Center, Colorado. Attendees from 15 states convened for two days of education that included clinical tracks on prosthetics, orthotics, and pedorthics, and an administrative/management track designed to bring O&P practice owners and managers up-to-date on the business and regulatory environments facing the profession. The Colorado O&P Association meeting was also held in conjunction with the symposium.

Practitioners had the opportunity to earn continuing education credits and units (CECs and CEUs) through the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC) and the Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC). The pedorthics track offered 12 credits in courses presented by Dennis Janisse, CPed, and Erick Janisse, CPed, CO, either singularly or jointly. Among those course offerings were “The Science of Foot Orthoses,” and “Partial Foot Prosthesis Options,” as well as a live demonstration of fabrication techniques for foot orthoses. The orthotics track offered 12 credits; among those course offerings were “Tri-planar Biomechanics in Pediatric Function,” and “Axial Resist Weight Bearing Suspension AFOs,” presented by Pamela Hale, CPO, and Jason L. Bradshaw, CO, FABDA, respectively. The prosthetics track offered 12 credits; among those course offerings were “The K2 Patient: What Do They Really Need?” and “Outcome Measures Aiding Documentation,” presented by Leslie Roberts, CP, MSS, and Anna Avakian, CPO, respectively. Eight additional CECs/ CEUs were available through the administrative track and six through the WillowWood OMEGA® training seminar.

Thirty-five supplier exhibitors had space in the exhibit hall to showcase their products and offerings including the 15 event sponsors.

PrimeFare West will return to Denver in March 2015; dates have not yet been determined.
