8th Annual Hopkins ICU Rehab Conference
10/10/2019 - 10/12/2019
Early rehabilitation of hospitalized patients can reduce muscle weakness, physical impairments and delirium. Yet achieving these outcomes is no simple task. Beyond understanding the science, it requires collaboration and coordination between clinicians who have traditionally worked in "silos." This conference will bridge the interdisciplinary gap from research to the bedside, and bring together clinical experts who are creating a culture based on proactive rehabilitation.
2nd Annual New Jersey Neurovascular Symposium
11/1/2019 - 11/1/2019
Cherry Hill, NJ
This annual conference looks at stroke management from a systems of care perspective, from pre-hospitalization to endovascular & neurosurgical interventions. It focuses on early stroke recognition and determination of stroke severity, as well as the latest advances in treatment and the importance of individualized care in the hospital setting.
Pediatric Critical Care Summit of the Americas

This is an extremely unique opportunity to be part of an amazing collaborative involving Pediatric Critical Care experts from all aspects of the Americas coming together to share knowledge and forge new connections and partnerships.
Mayo Clinic’s Current Concepts in Extracorporeal Life Support: Medical Management and High-Fidelity Cannulation Simulations
12/5/2019 - 12/7/2019
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL US
Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is increasingly being used for refractory cardiopulmonary failure and its use in the adult population is gaining attention in clinical practice. The paucity of randomized clinical trials and guidelines has led to significant practice variation when trying to address the challenge of minimizing risk and maximizing benefit. This course provides the necessary framework for management of a patient requiring ECLS through the use of practical case-based scenarios, high-fidelity hands-on simulations, and discussion of current hot topics.

Current practices in preventing post-intensive care syndrome
- Organizational structure and healthcare delivery systems of critical care units in Morocco
- Similarities and differences in critical care education and training in Morocco
- Quality processes and how change is implemented to improve patient care
- Treatment of infectious diseases occurring in Morocco and North Africa
