We have negotiated a reduced hotel rate at Hilton Garden Inn Murfreesboro from $129/night and Residence Inn Murfreesboro from $129/night, both a 7-10 minute drive from the The EC2 located at 2610 Merchant’s Walk, Murfreesboro TN 37128.
In this course, we offer didactic and simulation training designed to reinforce the core knowledge and skillset needed to be an ECMO Specialist (RN, RRT, CCP or MD caring for an ECMO patient).
This comprehensive 5-day training course is designed to train clinicians for their role as an ECMO Specialist. Our course is formatted to provide the educational content suggested by the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO). ELSO has published suggested “Guidelines for Training and Continuing Education of ECMO Specialists”. These guidelines provide a framework governing structure, content, evaluation and on-going training requirements essentially outlining standards that can be used by organizations training clinicians to function as ECMO Specialists. Adherence to and building upon these concepts ensure that a solid knowledge base is established. When partnered with hands-on and/or simulation training the learner develops a strong skill set to provide quality care to the patient receiving extracorporeal life support.
This course is designed primarily for the novice, combining didactic presentations with hands-on equipment, circuitry wet labs and progressive simulations. This course may be beneficial as a refresher course for those wishing to reinforce their prior training. The course content will cover both VA and VV modalities and the hands-on wet labs and simulations will be conducted in our new Extracorporeal Education Center. Integration of collaborative ECMO Advantage philosophies set the cornerstone for your learning experience leading to improved safety, better outcomes and decreased complications.
Current learning strategies allow for the conveyance of relevant didactic content which is then reinforced when incorporated into specific simulations. This format is designed to enhance the learning experience by immersing the learner into a realistic environment in which they must appropriately apply the knowledge they have acquired to resolve the issue at hand. It incorporates repetition, layering of information and progressive development of specific technical skills used when addressing routine and emergent situations.
Debriefing is an essential component of training and time for this process is allocated at the conclusion of each simulation. A debriefing session provides immediate learner feedback and is an opportunity for the sharing of information and positive reinforcement. The intent of this course is to promote patient safety by enriching knowledge, technical expertise, teamwork, and interpersonal communication required in today’s healthcare environment.
We have purposely limited registration to 12 learners per event in order to provide the greatest opportunity for hands-on training.
