Welcome to the SickKids 12th Annual Paediatric Emergency Medicine Conference.
This year we are offering a variety of learning formats to meet your individual learning needs. From short quick hit lectures highlighting new and innovative practices to case-based breakouts and hands-on workshops, all our sessions are designed to bring you evidence-based practical information that you can apply in your own practice setting.
We are delighted to have three superb keynote speakers; Dr James Holmes from UC Davis Children’s Hospital in California, Dr. Garth Meckler from Vancouver Children’s Hospital in British Columbia and our very own Dr. Suzanne Beno from SickKids in Toronto.
We are also offering three hands-on preconference courses including the all new Advanced Paediatric Procedural Sedation Course highlighting key issues and best practices with hi-fidelity simulation cases to practice skills. In addition, as ultrasound becomes a key component of emergency medicine practice, we have added new hands-on beginner ultrasound course to address this need in the paediatric emergency setting. We will also be offering the intermediate level ultrasound course for those who are interested in increasing their paediatric ultrasound skills.
Finally our conference offers an engaging community with faculty who are always ready to answer your questions and international colleagues to develop networks.
I look forward to meeting you in October.
