In this two-day program, participants will explore selected topics that every med-surg healthcare practitioner should know. General concepts will be covered to allow application to a wide variety of care settings, and comprehensive assessment and treatment modalities will be introduced to stimulate the experienced clinician. Each topic will be presented in a case study format highlighting the “red flags” to watch for, along with cutting-edge treatment strategies, in order to prevent further deterioration for the patient and ultimately to prevent harm.
