SASKSONO19 – DEEP DIVE ON POCUS!

The SASKSONO19 program comes together!

Join us on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019!

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN: https://ccdeconference.usask.ca/index.aspx?cid=408

This year, our  “DEEP DIVE” means we will be going beyond test performance metrics,  exploring in-depth the role clinical ultrasonography can have in improving patient outcomes and system efficiencies. Our conference includes a range of learning experiences including short lectures, hands on workshops for beginners as well as those already familiar with the basics, a Sono-Round Table to develop a multidisciplinary clinical ultrasonography framework at USASK, supervised scanning with top level coaching, as well as rapid oral abstracts and the always entertaining Sonogames!

As organizers, we are committed to delivering a conference that supports the learning and wellness of all our attendees. We have included several optional opportunities for networking, exercise, relaxation and laughter! We will also have spaces for breastfeeding/pumping for those who may choose to use them, and as organizers, will do our best to help attendees secure quality childcare if needed.  We also hope to be a low/minimal waste conference so please consider bringing your own coffee mug and/or water bottle.

Detailed Program:

7:30: Wellness Opportunity (optional) “Run at the speed of sound” or  “Sound walk with talk”. We will provide a meeting location and encourage our attendee runners and walkers to join us for a great start to the day!

10:30 am – 12:00 pm: Morning Concurrent Sessions

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.Screen Shot 2019-01-03 at 2.04.29 PM.png

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 and anatomy learning as well! This is a great opportunity for students and residents to explore applications outside the core USASK POCUS curriculum.

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! And if that seems a bit daunting – don’t sweat it, we’ll offer a mid-point stretch and re-energizing session. This way you’ll be sure to finish strong as you head into the final hour which will include (for section 3 credits) a detailed assessment of your skills!

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.
