In September, the upcoming 2021 POCUS WorldTM Virtual Conference will bring together our healthcare community worldwide, who share the common goal and passion towards advancing the education and implementation of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS).
This 2-day conference speaks to the needs of the medical providers who work tirelessly to support the community and provides them an opportunity to grow their network and elevate the POCUS mission. With a diverse offering of tracks and sessions, speakers from 14 countries, networking opportunities, educational resources, and more, POCUS World promises an unparalleled experience for the healthcare community.
The Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy™ recognizes the sacrifices and contributions healthcare professionals make and designed POCUS World to further support the community’s needs to elevate their level of care.
Jasmine Rockett, the Deputy Director of the POCUS Certification Academy, expresses how this unique conference aims to bring together “the global POCUS audience to converge on a shared mission of improving patient safety, increasing the efficient use of POCUS through education offerings at the conference, and build on the excitement of the current use of POCUS and future applications of POCUS.”
As a global virtual conference, POCUS World seeks to unite the medical community in learning and action, furthering the POCUS mission. With speakers, conference sessions, and innovative resources that engage all specialties and levels of POCUS users, this conference is bringing together professionals at various stages of our healthcare journey to learn from one another.
“What one person may need to get out of the conference may vary differently than what somebody else needs, that’s the reason for the diverse tracks and content being presented,” said Rockett.
From educational benefits such as extended access to all 58 sessions for three months after the conference to one-on-one and small group networking opportunities with subject matter experts and other healthcare providers, the opportunity to see live demonstrations by exhibitors, and more, POCUS World offers resources and knowledge across the spectrum of medicine.
The POCUS Certification Academy’s Global Director of Certificate Assessment, Torrey Smith, spoke further about how the conference’s format invites professionals from all backgrounds. “Attendees can tailor their experience to their own needs by being able to select sessions that fall within the specific tracks of Clinical Application, Medical Trends, or Education.”
Along with shaping our experience, attending means engaging with new applications of the modality, expanding our global network, obtaining access to professional development opportunities, and gaining knowledge of and accessing instrumental resources. Additionally, it is a chance to earn low-cost Continuing Medical Education (CME)’s and learn about validating our POCUS proficiency.
As a result of the virtual format, attending means having the opportunity to collaborate and engage with peers we otherwise would have never had the chance to connect with. Along with networking and connecting with other medical community members, the digital format also enhances the accessibility of the conference’s presentations and resources.
With all that it has to offer, POCUS World will indeed elevate the standards of care around the globe while providing healthcare professionals individual growth and development. This virtual experience is certain to meet the needs and wishes expressed by the healthcare community. Rockett promises that POCUS World will support attendees as they “continue to improve patient care and do what they do best.”
The POCUS Academy team is excited to meet you and collaborate in the shared mission of using POCUS to improve patient care. We look forward to seeing you at POCUS World in September!
