Are you thinking about joining us at this year’s Emergency Medicine LIVE in Niagara Falls/Buffalo, New York?
Here’s what to expect at Emergency Medicine Institute’s CME Conference on October 2nd through the 5th. It’s a four-day conference. Day one, we make very heavy. It’s a full day and then each day after that, we only have morning sessions, so you have a lot of time to explore beautiful Niagara Falls and the Niagara Gorge. Autumn is a gorgeous time of year to visit one of the greatest wonders of the world.
Our conference will be presented by both an MD and PA with years of emergency medicine experience. They are passionate about giving you tools of clinical application. Not theory, not stuff that self-inflates the speaker. It’s specifically designed to give you increased confidence and competence.
On day one, we’re going to talk about the ER mindset and open communication among your team, between doctors as advanced practitioners and clinicians. We’re going to talk about abuse, addiction and some compliance issues. We’re then going to talk about medical malpractice defense and how to stay out of trouble, as well as medical error reduction. Then we’re going to make sure your fundamentals are in place, how to use the CBC and the basic metabolic panel in patient care.
This initially sounds very basic, but we talk deeply about how to look at a subject patient in terms of using the CBC band count and neutrophils. We’ll get into the chemistries in a way that will, hopefully, forever change your practice, such as how to use blood gases or liver functions, and how to look at renal functions or acid base. We give you clinical tools and we will help you align clinical presentation, your physical exam history, with the labs.
Day two is a pulmonary day, where we teach about the five major causes of pulmonary complaints. We go through chest X-ray interpretation, respiratory failure, CHF, reactive airway disease, croup, epiglottitis, and the dreaded pulmonary embolism.
Day three is more of our cardiac day, where we explore chest pain and the five major lethal causes of chest pain. We look at ECGs and acute coronary syndrome, we look at different imaging and work up techniques, and once again we visit acute coronary syndromes, pneumothoraces, PE, thoracic dissections, and pericarditis.
On day four, we tie everything together with abdominal pain such as diverticulitis, kidney stones, pregnancy biliary colic, and pyelonephritis. Then after the break, we will talk about headaches, like meningitis headaches, stroke, and temporal arteritis.
Each day, our speakers will be very available to help you. At too many conferences, speakers think you came to see them speak. We know that our speakers came there to help you, completely at your service. That’s why we do question and answer periods. That’s why we do audience response units, and that’s why the speakers are very friendly and approachable. The doctors who teach for us insist on you calling them by their first name because in this capacity, they’re not your supervising or collaborating physician, they’re your colleague in the learning process.
Consider joining us at the Emergency Medicine Institute CME Conference, October 2nd through the 5th in Buffalo/Niagara Falls. Our expectation is this will be the best conference you’ve ever attended and you will be able to deeply apply what you learned when you leave.
