Thursday 10.30 – 12.00 and 13.00 – 14.30h

The use of point-of-care ultrasound by Emergency Physicians in guiding invasive procedures is growing rapidly. It is essential to work safely, while adapting to the new possibilities that ultrasound guided procedures offer. During this workshop you will learn to perform ultrasound guided peripheral and central venous access, and upper & lower extremity nerve blocks.

Do not miss this opportunity to practice new skills on realistic phantoms, in small groups by experienced staff.

  • Peripheral intravenous line placement
  • Central venous line placement

Part 2 Ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks

  • Upper extremity: medial, ulnar and radial nerve

What is your experience with the new Dutch "Meldcode kindermishandeling en huiselijk geweld"? A new "afwegingskader" has been added to step 5, do you know how to use it?
In this workshop we will talk about what has been changed, and how that effects our daily practice. Using actual cases we will discuss the best way to handle it.
Off course there will be enough opportunity for you to ask your questions and discuss the cases you already encountered.
