About the course

The 2020 programme builds on the success of Resuscitation Symposium 2018/19 and the feedback and suggestions from delegates.
The programme has been expanded to cover additional topics, whilst retaining the discussion panels and dedicated clinical scenarios sessions that have proved so popular. The contribution made to the new programme by a number of Consultant Emergency Physicians and Intensivists under the direction of Prof Tim Harris, is acknowledged.

The sessions address topics highly relevant to the front-line clinician, with a clear focus on the evidence base and the practical implications for day-to-day clinical practice – simple facts to make big changes.

By the end of the course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of recent advances in resuscitation medicine and be up to date with new/recent research evidence (and the implications for practice); the course will certainly give you greater confidence in your practice in relation to resuscitation and will help you identify areas of practice that need to be changed or reviewed.

Our faculty have agreed either to lecture live to you on the day, or provide the content which will be recorded a few days before.
