After attending the 2010 â€œFetus & Newborn: State-of-the-Art Careâ€ conference, your colleagues provided the following examples of how they would change their practice due to what they learned:
â€œAdvocate for greater initial resuscitation with CPAP and follow guidelines for rise in saturation.â€
â€œEncourage OBs to delay cord clamping for 60 seconds.â€
â€œTry to start feeds within the first 1-2 days of life with all my micro-premies.â€
â€œ Change how I approach parents during ethics consults, and consider other factors besides gestational age.â€
â€œUse tools and information presented as a template for changes to improve safety, specifically in shift-to-shift reporting.â€
Now you have the opportunity to attend the 27th Annual The Fetus & Newborn: State-of-the-Art Care conference and learn first-hand from national experts. Take home â€œpearlsâ€ that you can put immediately into practice to improve the care and outcomes of your NICU patients. Your interests and knowledge gaps will be addressed in lectures, lively discussions and 1:1 interaction with colleagues and faculty. Address your daily clinical challenges, evaluate evidence-based approaches for managing the critically ill neonate, and translate the latest research into practical clinical applications. This is a conference not to be missed!
Highlights of the 2011 conference include:
The ever-popular â€œNeonatal Pharmacologyâ€ Preconference, focusing on patient safety and the latest guidelines in addition to the most current pharmacologic treatment options for common diseases and complications.
Opportunities to interact and problem-solve with nationally known experts through case discussions and faculty panels.
Advances in technology and implications for patient care and outcomes, including bedside imaging, simulation training and interventional cardiology.
Discussion of â€œhot topicsâ€ such as prenatal drug exposure, the new guidelines for GBS treatment and neonatal resuscitation, effects of maternal obesity, ROP, the late pre-term, ethics and medical-legal issues.
First time the conference will take place in Las Vegas! At the end of the day, enjoy some well-deserved relaxation and sample the diverse entertainment, dining and shopping options that Las Vegas has to offer.
The Fetus & Newborn: State-of-the-Art Care conference blends fundamental science and clinical trials which provide the evidence for the day to day management of both mundane and complex neonatal disorders. This translates into the best possible outcomes for our patients -- the ultimate goal of all we do. We look forward to welcoming you to Las Vegas!
