Plan to come early! This year, attendees have numerous opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills over 2 days of small-group Workshops and Pre-Conferences preceding the 3-day Main Conference. Using state-of-the-art mannequins, ultrasounds, and other high-tech equipment, four Advanced Invasive Procedures Workshops (APWs) will be offered. Perfect your advanced procedural skills in these popular workshops, which are specially designed as 100% hands-on experiences in small groups with individual attention from expert faculty.
In addition to APWs, early-arriving attendees can select from among eight outstanding Pre-Conferences with topics in advanced assessment, diagnostic testing, and clinical management. Whether it’s Beginning/Advanced 12-Lead EKGs, Beginning/Advanced Imaging and Radiology, Cardiac Valvular Disease Workshop, Mechanical Ventilation Boot Camp, or Advanced Suturing, there’s literally something for everyone!
The Emergency Neurological Life Support® (ENLS) course will be offered beginning on Wednesday afternoon and continuing through Thursday morning. The ENLS® course is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the critical first hours of a patient’s neurological emergency. Now in its fourth version, ENLS® demonstrates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management.
