FUNdamentals: POCUS 101 will be an introductory session for those new to clinical ultrasonography/Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS). It will include flipped content sent to you before the conference as well as a quiz. The workshop will include a brief review ovf key concepts and hands on scanning practice of three core applications: scanning for abdominal and pleural fluid as well as pericardial effusion. Completion will include an assessment which, if passed, makes you eligible for more supervised scanning in the afternoon!
PROfound: USask’s first ever multidisciplinary POCUS Round Table will give Saskatchewan clinicians a chance to further guide the adoption and integration of POCUS throughout the province of Saskatchewan. We hope to establish provincial recommendations on training, scope of practice, documentation and quality assurance. Key recommendations will then be shared with the entire conference audience at the last session of the day for feedback and ratification. There will be flipped content sent out for this session including a draft framework document.
SONO EXPO: For those interested in exploring the spectrum of POCUS applications at USASK, we are excited to offer you deep dives into Inflammatory Bowel ultrasound as well as Pediatric EM ultrasound. And as usual, expect at least 30 minutes of hands on scanning as well! This is a great opportunity for students and residents to explore applications outside the core USASK POCUS curriculum.
SONO Abstracts and SONOGAMES: Always inspiring, educational and a good time, the students square off with their abstracts and then go head to head in the sonogames.
SUPERVISED SCANNING: Struggling with an application or two? Need some POCUS coaching? Here’s your chance! Instructors qualified in basic, diagnostic and resuscitative POCUS will be on hand to help you take your scanning to the next level for 3 straight hours!
SONO ROUND UP: We will present the main recommendations for a USASK POCUS Framework as developed by the Round Table panels and participants. The audience will have the opportunity to provide feedback and vote using an audience response system.
