Practicing Bedside Echo/Ultrasound: When It Counts

Practicing Bedside Echo/Ultrasound: When It Counts
Does PoCUS offer real help to guide the management of emergency and/or critically unwell patients? For those unsure of the value of learning PoCUS this event considers the rationale

Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August 2022

As part of our Surf Sand & Soundwaves 10th Anniversary we invite intensive care, emergency department, anaesthesia and smaller health centre practitioners to join us for a weekend of learning from interstate presenters who will be sharing their knowledge and passion for ultrasound all day Saturday and on Sunday morning. Join A/Prof Konstantin Yastrebov, Drs John Evans, Yang Yang, CartanCostello, and Jonathan Sheldon and hear why you should learn ultrasound, what the use and value of echo in a teaching hospital or regional ICU is, lung ultrasound in general and Corona Virus cases, and more.   

This face-to-face event will encourage interactive participation, and it's a great opportunity to catch up with other practitioners and meet new contacts whilst learning in the relaxed environment of Mantra on Salt Beach. Come and enjoy a cocktail on us after Saturday's program has finished. 

Head to Northern NSW - there are so many activities and sights to enjoy, so come to Kingscliff for a weekend away and make the most of it.

We will be recording this event, and registrants of this stream can view the recordings for 45 days following the event.
