It’s certainly not the shiniest. No airway toys, no free pens, not even a latte (don’t worry, there is always coffee!). No cabaret-esque introduction, dancing girls or ‘90’s rave approach to lighting. There’s never to my knowledge been an ICU consultant dressed up as a uterus at DEM either, a la the wonderful SMACC 2013…! For me, its 3 things that make DEM great – the ethics, the true innovation and the heart.
Central to the ethos of DevelopingEM has always been the excellence of the program. This year we think we have our best program ever with the format and content influenced by the feedback of previous delegates. You can see what’s in store for you if you come to Salvador by reviewing the previous presentations which are available on our website.
Luis is a LLSA specialist and has a monthly column in Emergency Medicine News entitled “Living with the LLSA” providing comprehensive reviews of required reading for members of the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
DevelopingEM is excited about the addition of a LLSA session and are very thankful for the involvement and expertise of Luis.
Our welcome reception on Monday 8th of September will be held in the gorgeous Pestano Convento do Carmo. This 16th century carmelite convent is a beautiful venue in the heart of the Historic Centre of Salvador (The Pelourinho) which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
DevelopingEM has, from the very first, had a focus on emergency medicine and critical care around the globe. And from the beginning we’ve been helped by Natalie Thurtle.
