Neonatal Pharmacology 2020: Incorporating Evidence-Based Practice into Clinical Decision Making

Image for Live streaming

November 11-13, 2020

 

Live Streaming 

We've been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and made the difficult decision to convert our conference on October 29th and October 30th to an all virtual meeting. We feel that a safe in person conference isn't possible in the current environment. We hope you can still join us however in this switch to an all virtual conference. Here's a few details to consider in this transition:

What Should I Expect

  • Engaging live, virtual sessions from our panel of speakers on drug therapy updates designed to help you gain knowledge, skills, and tools to become a better clinician
  • Opportunities for question and answer session with our expert speakers
  • Virtual networking opportunities to help connect and collaborate with our speakers and attendees

Conference Description

The need for evidenced-based practice in neonatology is increasingly important as clinical decisions and treatments are made. The conference is designed to help NICU professionals including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse managers and experienced staff nurses make those decisions. The goal of the conference is to share evidence-based approaches in the care of the neonate.
