Secure your seat for this two-day didactic and simulation conference, held in partnership with Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Participants will review implementation strategies and discuss approaches to enable a more effective and lasting application of the pain, agitation and delirium (PAD) guidelines by utilizing the multiprofessional team.

During this conference, which will be held at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, internationally recognized faculty will present lectures on patient management strategies and engage participants in clinical scenarios through small-group simulation labs. Hospitals are encouraged to send a team of two or more participants who will then be able to implement these strategies within their hospital’s ICU after the conference.
