Event Overview
Welcome message:

Featuring hands-on training, live demonstrations and small-group interactive sessions to enhance your skills

Keeping pace with the rapid changes in evidence-based critical care medicine is a challenge for specialty-trained intensivists; for non-intensivists, the challenge of staying up to date may be overwhelming. This cutting-edge CME course is intended to provide core clinical critical-care skills to health care providers who are not trained as intensivists but whose clinical duties involve taking care of critically ill patients. 


The focus of this course will be to highlight recent important evidence-based advances in the practice of modern critical care medicine. The topics include a variety of intensive care issues, such as mechanical ventilation, ultrasound, family meetings, shock and vasopressors, toxicology, sedation, delirium, ARDS, bleeding and transfusions, infections, antimicrobials and cardiopulmonary arrest.


Our outstanding faculty, recognized as experts in the field, will use diverse teaching methodologies including: didactic sessions, interactive case-based discussions, Q&As and direct hands-on simulation, procedural and clinical management practice sessions. These sessions will assess your reasoning and strategies for incorporating, synthesizing and applying core critical knowledge.

Being a great doctor requires not only knowledge and clinical expertise but also, perhaps even more importantly, communication skills and empathy. Fortunately, both can be taught and can be learned. Join your peers and experts in the field during this interactive workshop to discover how to improve patient-centered care and communication in your ICU. You will walk away with tangible strategies to overcome your communication challenges as well as mindfulness techniques for enhancing empathic communication. Space is limited for this highly interactive and engaging workshop!

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

1. Review the basic principles of mechanical ventilation and describe indications for noninvasive and invasive ventilation

2. Identify specific causes of delirium in critically ill patients, interpret signs of delirium in the critically ill, and characterize appropriate sedation goals to prevent delirium

3. Describe evidenced-based management of the bleeding patient in the intensive care unit

4. Categorize different types of shock, describe the pathophysiologic mechanism behind each and formulate appropriate treatment strategies

5. Rapidly assess causes and determine appropriate initial treatment for patients in cardiopulmonary arrest and identify best practices for post arrest treatment

6. Identify appropriate steps for ultrasound guided cannulation of the internal jugular vein

7. Demonstrate increased understanding of contemporary evidence-based practice in critical care
