POCATELLO — Idaho State University is hosting its second annual Emergency Medicine Conference on May 17-18.

“Emergency Medicine: A 4-Act Play-- What’s Your Role?” is designed to focus on four main areas of emergency medicine: prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.

EMTs, paramedics, first responders, emergency physicians, nurses, and other direct care workers are encouraged to come, as up-to-date information on a wide variety of emergency medicine topics will be discussed.

Dr. Michael P. Allswede D.O., Program Director of Emergency Medicine Residency at the Sunrise Consortium in Las Vegas, Nevada, will present the keynote address. He will be speaking on lessons learned from the October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The presenters for this year’s conference were selected based on their expertise in their area of practice and their ability to convey current, evidence-based, practical information on their area of emergency medicine.

Other topics to be discussed will include: High Performance CPR, SIM learning experiences, FEAR-less Emotion Management, Human Trafficking by O.U.R., Search and Rescue, STEMI, Pediatric Respiratory and Trauma, and Wilderness Cases, among others.

ISU’s Continuing Education and Workforce Training is anticipating more than 200 attendees at this year’s conference. Registration will open on April 1.
