This program has been designed to provide an update and review of critical care issues and conditions encountered in the critical care and acute care medical-surgical unit. It is intended to keep conference attendees abreast of the latest scientific developments in the diagnosis, causes, and treatment for critical care patients. It is therefore designed to fulfill the educational needs of internists, pulmonologists, intensivists, pharmacists, nurses, respiratory therapists and all other interested healthcare professionals to keep current in this rapidly changing field. 

Course Director Naeem Ali, MD, states, “Critically ill patients are cared for by many people in the hospital and each group has unique perspectives on care. Because we care for these patients as a team, we believe that education should be modeled in a similar way.  The MATCH conference will highlight advances in patient care in a multidisciplinary format.” 

This all day event is open to nurses and dietitians, respiratory and physical therapists, pharmacists and physicians with an interest in caring for critically ill patients and the speakers will reflect each of these disciplines.  To register for the conference, contact Beth Glinski at 614.292.1452.
