Conference Overview

 

This event will discuss a variety of timely, practical issues encountered in the emergency department on a daily basis. Lectures will be engaging, sometimes controversial, and present the audience with examples of both successes and failures in emergency medicine. Changes don’t always equal advances and advancement doesn’t always mean change. At the end of this program, participants should be able to distinguish between advancement and change in the ED in a relaxed, family-oriented environment where learning does equal fun!

This program has been designed to include all emergency medicine professionals including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, trauma nurses, residents, and emergency medicine technicians.
