FEATURE FRIDAY: University of Arkansas, College of Medicine, ICARE Conference

This July 10-12, at the Hammons Convention Center in Rogers, Arkansas, the ICARE Conference will raise awareness and provide an educational update to front-line emergency healthcare practitioners about critical and acute care. This symposium is put on by the College of Medicine CME Office, at the University of Arkansas, and “will present a variety of topics for an interprofessional audience of emergency care providers. Attendees will interact through active instructional methods including pro/con sessions, panel presentations, hands-on skills training, and other team-based learning strategies.”

Items covered in this course include:

1. Updates in evidence-based diagnostic and treatment recommendations for commonly encountered emergency situations;

2. Assessment and treatment of traumatic injury;

3. Appropriate care and follow-up for acute manifestations of chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes, obesity, hypertension); and
