Pre-conference Workshops: EPICC: Emergency Practice, Interventions and Care-Canada Course May 30 & May 31 (Thu-Fri), 09:00-16:00 Fees: $377; max 24 spots (nurses only) You can register through https://epicclearning.ca/events/epicc-foundations-parksville-bc/ EPICC uses evidence-based learning and assessment methods to fully engage the adult learner. Theoretical content is learned online before attending the course. The programs use mixed learning methods of small and large group case studies and simulation – there is no powerpoint-style learning at the attended sessions. The programs leverage the “community”…when everyone is together at a course, we believe that learners should be interacting, not watching lectures. The purpose of the course is to provide a standardized approach to the emergency department patient with a variety of presentations. In addition to discussing presenting complaint pathophysiology and standardized treatment, a focus will be placed on rapid plans of care, follow-up assessments and formats to communicate clinical data to other nurses and health care professionals. The intended participants for this course are Registered Nurses working in (or interested in working in) the Emergency Department. Other professions and emergency department staff are welcome to attend the EPICC; however, only Registered Nurses can receive certification in the course. APLS: Advanced Pediatric Life Support Course May 31 (Fri), 08:00-17:30 Fees: Physicians $550; Residents $400; RNs & RTs $400; max 12 spots You can register at the same time as your conference registration Developed by the AAP, APLS focuses on the core knowledge needed to provide care to critically ill and injured children in the emergency department environment. In this one day course, participants will work in teams to complete simulated resuscitations of pediatric patients. Scenarios will attempt to accurately reflect presentations that may be seen in community emergency departments. Emphasis will be on hands on practice in a high fidelity simulated environment. We will be utilizing the Mobile Medical Unit for this course in order to best replicate the clinical environment. This course is ideally suited to clinicians who regularly work in the emergency department and who are comfortable with the material covered in the Heart and Stroke Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course. APLS is designed to complement but not replace PALS. Most participants find it useful to recertify or review the PALS material before taking APLS. APLS Participants are generally pediatricians, emergency physicians, emergency and pediatric nurses and respiratory therapists. Senior trainees in pediatrics, family practice and emergency medicine are also welcome. Course instruction will be by Physicians and RN’s certified and experienced in Pediatric Critical Care and Resuscitation. We all enjoy working with adult learners and are excited to learn from and with you as we share our experience, tips and knowledge. Course participants will need to complete prereading of the The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource, Fifth Edition. Upon registering for the course, participants will receive details about purchasing and accessing textbook material.

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support for Experienced Providers (ACLS-EP) is a NEW ACLS renewal program designed primarily for seasoned healthcare providers who manage complex cardiovascular, respiratory, and other emergencies and need to renew their ACLS course completion requirements. The ACLS-EP Course emphasizes a systematic approach to patient care, critical thinking skills and critical decision-making skills and the questions; if you knew the cause of the cardiac arrest, would that change your management approach? If you had this information before the arrest, could you have prevented cardiopulmonary collapse or death? More generally, if you knew the eventual cause of sudden death (eg, acute coronary syndrome), what could you do to create a pathway for prevention and survival? Through didactic instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners will enhance their skills in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiopulmonary prearrest, arrest, and postarrest patients. Intended Audience: This course is designed for seasoned ACLS providers who wish to renew their provider status by using critical decision-making strategies. Physicians and other healthcare professionals who respond to complex cardiovascular, respiratory, and other emergencies are encouraged to attend. Learners are strongly encouraged to evaluate their knowledge and skill level before the course. The ACLS-EP Course is designed to challenge learners in an interactive format, which requires a comprehensive understanding of ACLS algorithms and practice skills.Course emphasis is at the Team Leader level, and minimal time is devoted to didactic material (ie. lectures). A learner who is not up-to-date with the current ACLS materials will have a difficult time keeping up with colleagues. Participants will work through participant selected case based and round table discussions of cardiovascular, respiratory, toxicological, metabolic and Post-Arrest Care. The prerequisites to enroll are current HSF BLS, eligibility to do an ACLS update course, and a score of at least 84 percent on the ACLS-EP entrance exam (a link will be provided in the ACLS-EP manual – the registrant will have two attempts to pass). If students have questions as to whether they are eligible, they can contact the Medical Director at email@example.com. If students are not up-to-date in BLS, they will have the opportunity (as part of the cost) to get BLS skills practice and testing prior to the ACLS-EP course (the morning of the course). It will require them completing an online module first through HSF. Further details can be obtained by contacting the Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
