Join us at the 29th Annual Pediatric Critical Care Nursing Conference, where clinical experts will provide insight and the perspective of their years of experience to help you navigate challenges you're facing now and anticipating in the near future. What are some new technologies being used to better assess, monitor and treat pediatric patients? Is research on sepsis providing information to improve outcomes? Have the benefits and risks of therapeutic hypothermia been more clearly defined? We hope your participation in this conference will help you answer these and many other questions, and positively impact the care you provide to the critically ill children for whom you care.

Mark your calendar, invite a colleague to join you, and plan on a unique learning experience.

Highlights of the 2013 Conference Include: Two new Preconferences!

  • Advanced Pediatric Pathophysiology: taking an in-depth look at a variety of disease processes including pulmonary vascular disease and traumatic brain injury, as well as new lab values and biomarkers.
  • Pediatric Critical Care Pharmacology: focusing on medication challenges such as sedation withdrawal and anticoagulation.

A number of "hot topics," issues you frequently deal with in your clinical setting, addressed in a variety of teaching styles including didactic sessions, faculty panels, concurrent sessions and interactive case study discussions.

Leaders in the field of pediatric critical care who will enthusiastically share their knowledge and provide guidance to work through challenging clinical dilemmas.
