Conference delegates will have the opportunity to brush up on a wide range of topics including obstetrical and gynecological emergencies, indigenous cultural competency, and clinical coaching. There will be a wide selection of hands-on workshops to choose from for the 2015 event, including airway management, suturing, ultrasound, casting, and injections.
