Critical Skills for Critical Care:
A State-of-the-Art Update and Procedures for ICU Providers
Training together as members of the interprofessional critical care team is essential to practicing high-quality critical care. Join us for a state-of-the-art update in critical care medicine through this intensive, hands-on, simulation-based experience in critical care ultrasound, mechanical ventilation, and airway management. Learn the latest updates in critical care through engaging and interactive sessions, including concise, evidence-based reviews, case-based discussions, and expert debates in areas of clinical controversy. The faculty are a mix of advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) and physicians, and together form a team with a wealth of bedside ICU knowledge and experience in these modalities to the share with participants.
Prior to attending, you will receive materials that form the cognitive base of the course. You are expected to become familiar with the content prior to the course start in order to reduce the need for lectures, so the focus can be on hands-on, interactive training.
Advanced practice providers, physicians, and others practicing critical care or emergency medicine are encouraged to attend.
Ultrasound, mechanical ventilation, and airway management skills are at the center of this course, and are taught from the perspective of the whole critical care team. Co-chairs Janna Landsperger, MSN, and Sue Stempek, PA, explain what to expect from our 2017 course.
