On Friday, May 22nd, RECC will feature a Rural Nursing Stream, which offers sessions specifically for rural nurses and nurse practitioners, taught by rural nurses. Topics include ECG interpretation, nursing scope of practice, and a two hour workshop on suturing and wound closure. In addition to the nursing stream sessions, delegates will also have the opportunity to attend three one-hour plenary sessions featuring discussion panels.
On Saturday, May 23rd, RECC will host a series of Wilderness Medicine talks, a round robin skills session, a panel discussion, and a one hour plenary talk. Anyone may attend the sessions on Saturday.
