The Crashing Patient: Resuscitation & Risk Management Main Conference 2017

Las Vegas, NV US
October 19, 2017

There's no question that the practice of emergency medicine is high risk. "High risk" implies danger to patients, but we all know that patients aren't the only ones at risk in the Emergency Department (ED). Each patient visit also represents legal risk for the provider. The threat of malpractice in the U.S. healthcare system, especially in high risk specialties such as emergency medicine, is and ever-present issue that affects physician workups, practice patterns, and dispositions on a daily basis.

This conference has been created to address both parties at risk in emergency medicine- the patient and the provider. Topics have been specifically chosen to educate attendees regarding the optimal care of the sickest patients we see in daily ED practice- sepsis, cardiac ischemia, aortic dissection, etc. – as well as to educate attendees in how to bullet-proof themselves from the plaintiff attorneys. The instructors for the conference are acclaimed educators, winners of more than a dozen national teaching awards, and experienced national and international-level speakers who know how to present information in a practical and entertaining way.
