Conference Brochure

Toxicology for Urgent, Emergency, and Critical Care Course is organized by Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held on Apr 13, 2018 at Conference Center At Waltham Woods, Waltham, Massachusetts, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Pharmacists and EMS Personnel. This course may also be of interest to those who practice in Critical Care and Trauma, Emergency Medicine or Toxicology. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 8.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :
This course is designed to update clinicians on the care of the intoxicated, overdose, or exposure patient. There are approximately 1 million ED visits annually for drug poisoning while most acute care hospitals do not have a Medical Toxicologist on staff to guide care, often relying on phone consultation from a local Poison Control Center. However, management decisions are often needed prior to Poison Control consultation or rely on bedside clinical judgment that phone consultation cannot provide.

This course is designed for a wide range of clinicians, including emergency physicians, hospitalists, intensivists, residents, midlevel providers, nurses, pharmacists and prehospital personnel. Topics will include novel antidotes, updates on management of cardiovascular drug intoxication, management of withdrawal syndromes, emerging drugs of abuse, common medication errors, issues with analytical methods, and updates on the opioid epidemic.

This course will be a collaboration between the Divisions of Medical Toxicology at BIDMC, BWH, and CHA; the Program in Medical Toxicology at Boston Children’s Hospital; the Department of Emergency Medicine at MGH; and the Regional Center for Poison Control and Prevention for MA and RI.

Conference Objectives :
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Manage common toxicologic presentation such as agitated delirium and drug-induced bradycardia
• Develop strategies to improve your ability to evaluate pediatric poisoning when it presents in practice
• Increase your understanding of the opioid epidemic
• Recognize common dangerous medication errors
• Utilize new antidotes and novel emergent medications
• Improve management of withdrawal syndromes

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
