Pre-courses add value

Richard Branson presents at the Mechanical Ventilation Workshop.

Congress doesn’t start till tomorrow, but early birds are here today to take part in three great pre-courses aimed at delivering targeted information designed to boost their careers.

The day-long “Ultrasound Guided Peripheral Access Course” is covering all the bases for new and experienced inserters alike. With both didactic and simulation training included, attendees will walk away with the confidence they need to assume this role in their facilities. The course is being sponsored by Teleflex.

The “RT Leader Workshop: Defining and Communicating the Value” kicks off this afternoon and will give managers and other leaders the chance to learn more about the drive to replace volume with value in the respiratory care profession. Through both lecture and interactive sessions, attendees will be brought up to speed on the need to employ patient-focused respiratory care protocols and measure the results of their programs and services. The workshop is being sponsored by Monaghan.

And the AARC’s “Preparing for a Pandemic: The Strategic National Stockpile — Mechanical Ventilation Workshop,” which is supported by a grant from the CDC, is giving attendees another chance to get up to speed on the ventilators that will be called into action in the event of a natural or manmade disaster with a major respiratory component.

Something extra found here

The Congress is chocked full of educational opportunities, but some of our dedicated exhibitors are upping the ante even more by hosting industry-sponsored breakfast and lunch symposia aimed at delivering critical information — and additional CRCEs too.

Fisher & Paykel and Genentech will get things started tomorrow morning and Getinge, Sunovion, and Boehringer Ingelheim have sessions planned for Thursday.

Medtronic and Mallinckrodt round things out with Friday presentations.

Preregistration emails went out to attendees for these events, but seats may still be available, so if you’re in Indy, go by the company booths and see if you can still take advantage of these great educational opportunities.
