Registration is now open for the 2016 Rural Emergency Continuum of Care (RECC) conference! This popular event will be held at the Civic Centre in Prince George on June 9 + 10 and will feature accredited CME, including hands-on skills workshops taught by rural and regional health care practitioners.
This year, in addition to the popular difficult airway, procedural sedation, and joint injection workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to participate in three HOUSE (Hands-On Ultrasound Education) intensives based on the course operated by UBC Rural CPD. These intensives – covering ectopic pregnancy, abdominal pain, and vascular access – require pre-reading ahead of the workshop, so that in-class time can be spent honing skills and image interpretation in a 2:1 learner to instructor environment. There will be an additional fee of $125 for each of the three ultrasound intensives.
Pre- and post-courses for 2016 RECC will be offered in three locations: Prince George, Vanderhoof, and Quesnel.
- June 7 + 8 – The CARE Course: Quesnel (This course is fully subscribed.)
- June 8 – The Shock Course: Prince George
- June 8 – Northern Reflections Medical Education Day (faculty development): Prince George
- June 11 – HOUSE Program: Prince George
- June 11 – Wilderness Medicine Course: Vanderhoof
- June 12 – CASTED: Emergency: Vanderhoof
Please note that The CARE Course is fully subscribed.
Enrolment is limited for all hands-on workshops as well as pre- and post-courses. Register early to guarantee your seat and avoid disappointment.
