Watch highlights from the Inaugural Emergency Medicine Quality Summit and Register for the 2015 Event!

Have you registered for the 2nd Annual Quality Summit?

The 2nd Annual Quality Summit for Emergency Medicine is presented by the Baylor, JPS, & Parkland Division of EmCare. In 2014, its inaugural year, the Quality Summit was an exclusive event for EmCare-affiliated clinicians; however, after much success, the division decided to make the event annual and extend an invitation for non-affiliated clinicians to take advantage of the CME credits, networking and fun the event offers.

“It started with a little journal club at local restaurants and went into more of a clinical integration forum, which went on for about a year and a half, and now this is a summit that we felt would allow us to showcase all of the quality improvement and examples of integrated leadership in the [Dallas/Fort Worth] metroplex,” said Dr. Nick Zenarosa, EmCare’s system medical director for the Baylor/JPS division.

Last year, the summit’s topics included: “Treatment of Headache and Chronic Pain,” “Lactate in Sepsis,” “Low-Risk Chest Pain” and “End Tidal CO2 Patterns and Usage.”

War time trauma, population health and HIV screening in the ED are a few of the topics that will be covered at this year’s event that’s expected to draw more than 300 emergency medicine clinicians to the day-long event at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas on January 30, 2015.

“We had between 150 and 200 people attend,” said Crystal Stanley, project manager for EmCare’s Baylor/JPS Division. “The summit is something the Baylor Quality Committee put together for the division for continued education, to bring everybody in the division together, to get some CME credit, get some vendors here so everyone can learn about some new products and technologies. It’s been a really great success!”
