LIVE Encore Virtual Conference

As we continue to navigate through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in support of our CRNAs during National CRNA Week, Encore Symposiums is offering a FREE two-hour virtual COVID-19 update on Saturday, January 30th. Encore Symposiums is proud to share the expertise of Kevin Driscoll, DNP, MSN, CRNA, in a live virtual two-hour conference in the comfort of your own home during convenient weekend hours.

Kevin Driscoll is a Staff Anesthetist at the NIH (National Institutes of Health)*, Clinical Center, Building 10. This is the world’s largest research-only dedicated hospital where they take on medically complex cases to gain greater insights into future diagnosing, treating, and curing patients. The NIH has played a pivotal role in both the COVID vaccine development and federal recommendations for response. Prior to that, he was at the Johns Hopkins Hospital where he helped lead the first Collaborative Unit-Based Safety Program in the Department of Surgery and co-chaired a Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Community. He received his DNP from Yale University, where his focus was on the geo-spatial analysis of the positive correlates for veteran suicide in the post-9/11 veteran communities. Kevin currently serves as the President of the NBCRNA (National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA).

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving disease that has caught the healthcare community by surprise. Traditional forms of learning about a disease, such as textbooks and journal articles, are lagging and have been replaced with up-to-date, real-time briefings to outline the current state of the science. A clear understanding of the History, Virology, Epidemiology, Physiology, and Pharmacology are critical to both the management as well as treatment of COVID patients. The global awareness of these concepts guides all recommendations and provides healthcare professionals with critical knowledge to fill in the gaps where recommendations may lack to ensure that providers and patients remain safe. This series will provide the background to Coronaviruses and highlight some major advances that are unfolding in real-time.

*Kevin Driscoll is providing his insights in a personal capacity and not part of his role as a federal employee.

Due to an unpresidential demand, this fourth series of the COVID Update will be held Saturday, March 13th from 1:30 - 3:30 PM PST. The registration is limited to 200 CRNAs. The registration deadline is March 5th, or until the limit has been reached. Once the registration limit has been reached, you will have the option to be placed on the "Wait List" for a future session.

This program has been prior approved by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists for 2.00 Class A CE credits; Code Number 1040187; Expiration Date 3/13/2021. AANA designates this program as meeting the criteria for up to 1.00 CE Credits in pharmacology/therapeutics. The AANA is an approved provider by the California Board of Registered Nursing, CEP #10862.
