2018 LLUCH Neonatal/Pediatric Transport Conference
Thursday, June 7, 2018
7:00 AM - 5:00 PM
24760 Stewart St., Centennial Complex 4th Floor, Loma Linda, CA 92350
*Complimentary shuttle provided at designated zones for sim lab attendees.
This one-day, multidisciplinary conference is designed for those seeking an overview of neonatal and pediatric transports, seeking knowledge regarding assessments, care, and stabilization of neonates and pediatric patients prior to transport for higher levels of care, and seeking to cultivate their career development as a neonatal and pediatric healthcare provider. The conference will address situational awareness, recognizing signs and symptoms for NAT, surgical emergencies, difficulty airways, as well as, acute life-threatening conditions. Learners will have an opportunity to discuss the importance of debriefing, clear communication, self-care, and the future of transport. (Conference Brochure | Register)
CEs for: ANCC, APA, BRN, CAPE, Physical Therapy Board of California, Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board.

2017 LLUCH Care of the Newborn Brain Symposium - Neuro NICU
This multidisciplinary conference is designed for health care providers interested in understanding perinatal diagnoses and their etiologies, increasing diagnostic skills in assessing high-risk infants, and discussing issues that surround the age of viability. Attendees will learn about pre and postnatal best practices through utilizing a team approach in planning care of both mother and baby. Evidence-based practices, including provision of family-centered care before, during and after birth, and sometimes infant dying and death, will be discussed. The need for a small baby unit will be described, highlighting the necessity of neurodevelopmental care to improve all health outcomes. (Conference Brochure)
