In 2021, clinicians have a variety of continuing education options ranging from online virtual learning to one- or two-day workshops in a variety of cities.

All educational offerings have continuing education credits available, and all programs include extensive handout and reference materials.

Whether you are looking to obtain or maintain your NCC certification, sharpen your practice skills, or just update your professional knowledge base, there are choices to fit every clinician’s needs.

I am so excited to be partnering with Drs. Stephanie Martin and Suzanne McMurtry Baird on another wonderful 2-day offering!

This is an incredible opportunity to get a fetal monitoring update and learn everything you need to know about hypertension, sepsis, hemorrhage and other issues with maternal morbidity/mortality from the best minds in critical care.

We are back in Las Vegas for this annual program, and it will pack a punch! Join me and my co-authors Becky Cypher and David Miller as we present updated information on all aspects of fetal monitoring. We will also be spending and entire morning session on medico-legal issues (mock deposition anyone?) with attorneys Jay Kelley and Marilena DiSilvio from the law firm of Elk & Elk. Bring your questions, bring your cases, there will be ample time for discussion. And you won’t want to miss the break-out sessions that include an interactive tracings review, the ever popular myth-busting with David, and a brand new session on antepartum care of the high-risk patient.
