IES Patient Safety Conference

Friday, August 30, 2019

IES has a history of providing innovative provider and team-centric education to address real-time issues in emergency medicine.  We intend to raise the issue of patient safety in the setting of a teambased/case-based approach to emergency care.  This 8-hour program will provide an emphasis on performing actions necessary to ensure patient safety in critically ill patients, with some simulation of real-world time pressure events.   

Please RSVP soon because this conference will only accommodate 100 seats. Once those seats are full, we will begin a waiting list.
