Registration is now open for the Heartland EMS for Children virtual pediatric symposium, "From Accidents to Abuse: Treating Pediatric Burns." It will be held Oct. 19, 7-9 p.m., and provide two hours of free medical CNE/CME as well as two hours of EMS CEUs (trauma). This training will feature a speaker from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Burn/Trauma Unit. See the attached flyer and click or use the QR code to register (you may have to download the flyer before it will let you click to register).
As in the past, EMS providers may watch as a group and submit to me a list of attendees following the symposium, but nurses, physicians and anyone else seeking CME credit must register and watch under their own name to receive credit.
