Keeping pace with the rapid changes in evidence-based critical care medicine is difficult for specialty-trained intensivists; for non-intensivists, the challenge of staying up to date can be overwhelming. Never has this been more evident than during our battle with COVID-19. This cutting-edge CME course is intended to provide core clinical critical-care skills to health care providers who are not trained as intensivists but whose clinical duties involve taking care of critically ill patients. The focus of this course will be to highlight recent important evidence-based advances in the practice of modern critical care medicine and leave the audience with tangible strategies to immediately improve their practices. Hot-off-the-press emerging topics will also be addressed, arming you with the latest information.

Our outstanding faculty, recognized as experts in the field, will use diverse teaching methodologies including: didactic sessions, interactive case-based discussions, Q and A sessions, panel discussions and procedural demonstrations. These sessions will test your clinical reasoning and leave you with strategies for incorporating, synthesizing and applying core critical knowledge to your intensive care practice. Our faculty come from various training backgrounds and include physicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and speech and language pathologists to assure the most up-to-date and practical content is delivered.

Our mission is to deliver the most up-to-date practice recommendations across a broad range of clinical problems encountered in the care of critically ill patients via an interactive, highly accessible, and educationally sound platform
