Welcome

UPMC Hamot 2019 Emergency Medicine and Trauma Conference

Erie, PA US
September 20, 2019

Co-Sponsored by the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Research and evidence often surpass current practice standards; therefore, health care providers must be able to assess and implement improved patient care in advance of published standards. As new trends emerge, it is the responsibility of health care providers to facilitate implementation of practice change to incorporate emerging technologies and adapt to changing practice environments. Standardization of care in tertiary and regional emergency centers is a crucial factor in providing consistent, high-quality care to the regional community.

This activity has been designed to increase the participant’s critical thinking and knowledge of some common and not-so-common challenges in trauma and emergency medicine. Specific topics were selected based on challenges faced almost daily in trauma and emergency patient care, as well as ongoing and emerging health care concerns and trends. Ample time for questions and answers has been built in to each presentation. Audience members will also have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with presenters during refreshment breaks and lunch.

Target Audience

Trauma and emergency medicine physicians, nurses, advanced practice providers, and pre-hospital personnel, as well as primary care practitioners with an interest in trauma and emergency medicine will benefit from attendance at this activity.

  • Describe physiologic signs to differentiate patients who would benefit from transfer to an accredited trauma center
