The purpose of the Intermountain Emergency Services Conference is to provide a learning opportunity for pre-hospital and emergency department professionals, to promote a collegial learning atmosphere, and improve patient care outcomes. Reviewing current evidence based practice guidelines and hands on clinical instruction helps to solidify the participants ability to care for acutely ill patients in emergency settings.


Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply current research findings and evidence based practice guidelines when caring for complex or critically ill patients both in the field and the hospital based setting
  • Discuss topics to increase knowledge base when dealing with airway management, being prepared for external mass disasters and traumatic arrests
  • Apply hands on skills sessions and relate that experience with lecture and discussion with other providers​

Target Audience 

Registered nurses, pharmacists, critical care physicians, advance practice clinicians, and pre-hospital care providers (EMTs and paramedics).
