2nd International Symposium of Critical Care in Cancer Patients 5/29/2019 - 6/1/2019 Houston, Texas, USA
The incidence of oncologic diseases has risen in recent years. This is associated with an increase in the number of patients with cancer that can be found in intensive care units. Critically ill oncologic patients have several therapeutic challenges due to their nutritional and immunologic baseline, risk of infectious diseases, and cancer-treatment toxicities. For this reason, it is essential to reduce the knowledge gaps, and provide critical care staff with updated educational resources to improve patient outcomes. This Symposium addresses the complex scenarios that could be found in the intensive care units and allow the attendees to have direct contact and learn from oncologic critical care experts.
Abdominal Wall Reconstruction (AWR) 2019 Conference 6/6/2019 - 6/8/2019 Washington, D.C.
The Conference is a comprehensive two-day symposium. The purpose of this highly interactive meeting is to offer an evidence-based discussion on all aspects of AWR through didactic lectures with video education and case presentations to address the growing rate of hernia repairs and updates in technology and procedures. Currently, there are approximately 350,000 ventral hernia repairs performed annually in the United States and the patient population continues to be increasingly complex with significant co-morbidities. This conference will address the high overall complication rate as well as the association of ventral hernia repair as the cause of the second highest postoperative readmission rate. The agenda is constructed to provide the participants with an in-depth understanding of the complexity of AWR. The course is comprised of internationally renowned faculty that are a diverse group of experts chosen from the disciplines of general and plastic surgery, based upon their ongoing contributions to the field of abdominal wall reconstruction. The individual sessions will focus on patient optimization, selection of surgical approach and reinforcement material for different patient populations, and management of complications.

8th Annual Hopkins ICU Rehab Conference 10/10/2019 - 10/12/2019 Baltimore, Maryland
Early rehabilitation of hospitalized patients can reduce muscle weakness, physical impairments and delirium. Yet achieving these outcomes is no simple task.

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.
