As we found out in Havana, Anthony is an amazing educator and for DevelopingEM 2014 Salvador he has assembled an amazing group of physicians including Marianne Gausche-Hill, Mary McCaskill, Billy Mallon, Sue Beno, Joe Lex, Camilo Gutierrez, Charise Kwan and Marcelo Preto-Zamperlini.
Andrew’s presentation on the management of intracranial catastrophes outlines some of the controversies and potential solutions for emergency physicians for a disease process that is frequently a frustrating dynamic. Andrew has helped DevelopingEM from the start and whilst he won’t make it to Salvador he will be supporting us from back home in Oz.
Sanj is an emergency and retrieval medicine physician from Sydney. He has an interest in education and has taught around the globe. During DevelopingEM 2013 he gave this presentation, organised a fantastic CT interpretation workshop and assisted with the Ultrasound Workshop. This year he is chairing our Trauma Program which is shaping up to be a standout component of the program in Salvador.
Continuing with our presentations from Havana the next in our series from the Adult EM and Critical Care session is from Jorge Otero on Critical Care Ultrasound for the New Era. Jorge is a fluent Spanish speaker and it was great to have him on board in Havana where his presentations in Espanol were a welcome relief from the Aussie drawl for our Cuban companeros.
The goodwill from St. Lucia’s participation in the Developing EM Conference in Cuba continues to flow our way. St. Lucia will host its first ever Paediatric Intensive Care Basic Course!
Due to the overwhelming positive feedback from the ultrasound workshops at previous conferences, we have added a two day post conference workshop to the end of the Brazil conference this year. Presented in person by Drs Mike Mallin and Matt Dawson from the popular and innovative Ultrasound Podcast, it is sure to be an event not to be missed. With only 30 places available, make sure you book your place soon.
