NEW Using Photobiomodulation in Diverse Clinical Applications

Participants This session is suitable for clinicians (physicians, allied health and nursing) and researchers.

Background Requirements Graduate level knowledge and outcomes and attributes in clinical and biological sciences will be necessary for this session.

Educational Needs/Expected Learning Objectives The session will discuss the lack of knowledge of the underlying principles and clinical evidence to support the use of laser photobiomodulation in various clinical applications along with the relevance of irradiation parameters to clinical effects. Attendees will be provided with an overview of clinical applications, current challenges/debates, and focus - for the areas indicated - on providing a summary of biophysical and biological rationale, as well as current clinical evidence. This session will serve to improve performance, clinical competence, and clinical outcomes by enabling better clinical reasoning and clinical decision making in attendees. The principle aim of the activity is to enhance evidence-based practice: informing better decision making for individual patients through the use of the best available evidence; along with better clinical outcomes, and improved patient safety.
