UPMC Hamot 2020 Critical Care & Emergency Medicine Conference

Erie, PA US
September 18, 2020

Join your colleagues and gain the latest updates in critical care and emergency medicine!

This activity has been designed to increase the participant’s critical thinking and knowledge of some common and not-so-common challenges in critical care and emergency medicine. Specific topics were selected based on challenges faced almost daily in critical care 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

Critical care 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.
