CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION

Designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician associates, nurses, and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the care of pediatric patients, our Current Issues in Pediatric Emergencies takes place over the course of three days. Our expert faculty will discuss the latest evidence-based advancements in pediatric emergency medicine, present emerging clinical data, and provide skills and strategies for application and implementation into your practice. This educational activity aims to increase both the competence and performance of all attendees as well as contribute to your ability to work together as part of a coordinated healthcare team.

Topics for this year’s conference have been selected based on the educational needs underlying identified professional practice gaps. The gaps were derived from a variety of sources including evaluations and outcomes data from past participants, clinical expert input, Symposia Medicus’ online survey, and other medical and nursing data such as current clinical guidelines, research findings, literature reviews, and patient safety considerations.

An outstanding faculty has been assembled for this conference. Each faculty member was selected based on their individual area of expertise and ability to communicate current, evidence-based, and practical information to participants.

The conference format includes didactic lectures, question and answer sessions, and case studies. A group of lectures, the question and answer sessions allow attendees to ask the faculty critical and challenging questions about caring for patients during various pediatric emergency situations.

You are sure to enjoy our conference on Current Issues in Pediatric Emergencies while sharing ideas and experiences with colleagues from across the country in the beautiful setting of Alaska.

On your Celebrity Solstice® Cruise, you will experience scrumptious, world-class meals, theatrical extravaganzas at the Solstice Theater, cocktails in the lounge or breakfast overlooking the sea at sunrise. Travel and Leisure magazine named Celebrity Cruises® as one of the “World’s Best” among the Top Large-Ship Cruise Lines.

If you crave more rest and relaxation onboard, you can indulge in a unique collection of both familiar and unknown wines from around the globe at the Cellar Masters Wine Bar, or discover a state of pure tranquility in the AquaSpaSM. The Celebrity Solstice® boasts the first Lawn Club at sea, where you can enjoy casual outdoor activities onboard. You can also experience live art during the Hot Glass ShowSM, where professional glassblowers create custom-designed artwork right in front of your eyes. All this and, of course, exciting shore excursions for the entire family!

Symposia Medicus and the conference faculty hope you join us aboard the Celebrity Solstice® for this cruise conference of a lifetime.
