Event Overview
Welcome message:

Our 15th Annual Winter Conference on Pediatric Emergencies focuses on many challenges facing Pediatric and Emergency physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the clinical care of children. The goal of this conference is to increase the knowledge and enhance the competence of attendees. Emphasis will be placed on practical application of the evidence-based topics presented.

Topics for this year’s conference have been selected based on the educational needs determined from the identified professional practice gaps. The gaps were derived from a variety of sources including evaluations and outcomes data from past participants; clinical expert input; Symposia Medicus’ online survey; and other medical and nursing data.

Conference format will include didactic lectures, case studies, and question and answer sessions.

An outstanding faculty has been assembled for this conference. Each member was selected based on their individual area of expertise and ability to communicate current, evidence-based, and practical information to participants.

You are sure to enjoy our 15th Annual Winter Conference on Pediatric Emergencies while sharing ideas and experiences with colleagues from across the country in the beautiful setting of Beaver Creek.
