Department of Emergency Medicine, JSS Medical College, JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research is organizing the 2nd State level Emergency Medicine Conference in Karnataka from the 15th to 18th of January, 2020.
'Emergency' by itself refers to a dangerous or serious situation that happens unexpectedly and needs fast action in order to avoid harmful results. In the field of Medicine it is the duty of the Emergency Physician to deliver that level of care on a daily basis. To prepare for the unexpected and to act swiftly with reason is a skill that is imperative to all practicing Emergency Medicine. To assist the clinician in mastering this skill, certain guidelines have been implemented with the goal of achieving optimal outcomes. The future of Emergency Medicine lies in our ability to craft such guidelines based on high quality research and evidence based practice of Medicine.
Emergency Medicine is flourishing and Karnataka personifies that aspect as much as any other state. With a considerable number of EM specialists graduating every year, evidence based practice of Emergency Medicine is thriving in the state. EM is a dynamic, team oriented speciality and so, as EM physicians, we should aspire to learn from each other and endeavour to strengthen the bonds of friendship that make us effective as a team.
The conference will have multiple hands-on workshops, scientific sessions, panel discussions and competitions for under-graduates, post-graduates, nurses, paramedics and specialists to undergo a learning experience for mutual benefit.
