Overview

High Risk Emergency Medicine Hawaii is a course designed to address those topics that, due to the risk of misdiagnosis or misadventure, produce the greatest anxiety and concern in the daily practice of emergency medicine. Offered by the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, nationally renowned for emergency medical and trauma care, this conference will meet the needs of the practitioner who encounters a high risk condition in their daily medical practice. This includes practicing emergency physicians as well as internists, family practitioners, and others who practice in an urgent care, high risk, or emergency department setting.

Pre-conference Overview
For the first time this year, we will be offering a one-day course focusing specifically on high-risk pediatric emergency medicine (PEM).  The morning session will include presentations on several anxiety-provoking topics, with each presentation to be followed by small group case discussions led by our PEM experts.  The afternoon will consist of workshops whereby participants will rotate through 8 hands-on stations focused on pediatric airway, access, and other procedures.  Here, participants will be able to practice managing difficult airways, placing pigtail catheters, obtaining ultrasound-guided intravenous access on infants and children, and performing procedures in special pediatric populations, such as replacing gastrostomy buttons and managing tracheostomies.  

Instructors for both the morning and afternoon sessions include UCSF PEM faculty who are nationally recognized educators, and who have taught at both the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly and the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference and Exhibition.

Register today to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn directly from the experts.
