12th Annual Northern New England Rural Emergency Services and Trauma Symposium 2019

The care of the critically ill or injured patient provides unique challenges in a rural or critical access setting. On November 13 and 14 join Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Center for Rural Emergency Services and Trauma (CREST) for its 12th Annual Symposium designed for rural emergency medicine providers by experts in austere, out of hospital, and tertiary rural emergency care. Effective interdisciplinary collaboration is critically important when providing high value rural emergency care.

In recognition of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team’s (DHART) 25th year of operation, we are offering a pre-symposium DHART half day event on November 13th which will be full of air transport lectures and airway simulation as well as the opportunity to meet the DHART crew in the DHART hanger.

Our core curriculum of this year's symposium will focus on the care of patients emergently requiring critical care transport. Nationally recognized speakers will transport you through discussions of stabilization, management, and transport of critically ill patient while delivering up-to-date clinical evidence and teaching practical skills broadly relevant to nurses, associate providers, physicians and EMS providers. Themes of critical care, hospital transport, team building, resource allocation, communication and compassion will underscore clinical content. For hands-on learning, you will have the option to pre-register for multidisciplinary simulation trainings, including in Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center's Simulation ambulance, to reinforce the principles and pearls from the day’s lectures.

Simulation Training Overview

In an effort to complement the didactics we have designed a simulated critical care transport experience. Pre-register to join us for two 90 minute SIM based learning experience. We will focus on the care of critically ill patients offering hands-on experiences with airway and hemodynamic management in a team environment. You will discover up to date treatment plans for the stabilization, management and transfer of patients who are critically ill —guided through your experience with Board Certified Emergency Care physicians, Level 1 Trauma nurses, and SIM based instructors.

Some of the simulation sessions will begin outside in our simulation ambulance. As it is November, please check the weather and dress appropriately.
