The format includes case-based presentations with many opportunities for questions and discussion. Audience participation is encouraged! This year, in addition to bringing you Rural Rounds on rurally-relevant hot topics, for the first time we are also teaming up with CODI intensivists. Participants will learn from critical care specialists who have a passion for supporting their rural colleagues - view and review rural case simulations, discuss real cases that were supported via CODI and gain skills to apply in your practice. Highly interactive and engaging case simulations for you - by you!
