ClinCon 2001 targets relationships between EMS personnel, suppliers – Brief Article

Suppliers targeting emergency medical treatment providers should take aim at ClinCon 2001, scheduled for July 19-22 at the Rosen Center in Orlando, Fla.

Subtitled “Science Hits The Streets,” ClinCon 2001 is a joint presentation of the Florida Emergency Medicine Foundation and the Florida College of Emergency Physicians and is one of the most heavily attended conference/exhibitions of its kind annually.

The goal of ClinCon, said the organizers, is to create an educational experience for emergency personnel that helps provide the highest quality pre-hospital care to patients.

Part of that process is ClinCon’s strong emphasis on hands-on buyer experience with the products shown by exhibitors. The one-on-one exposure serves to help train emergency personnel in the use of the products and also tends to establish long-term buyer/seller relationships.

ClinCon said attendees will have access to the latest in emergency medical equipment, vehicles and technology. Exhibitors are available to answer questions and solve technical problems and, said the organizers, create networks and long-term working relationships.

ClinCon is attended by paramedics, emergency medical technicians, firefighters, EMS medical directors and educators, emergency physicians and nurses and other allied health professionals.

Continuing education credit is available for a number of presentations. Among the topics are:

* The clinical, education and system management controversies effecting pre-hospital care

* The physiology of common complications that arise in ICU patients

* The basic of adult education as they apply to EMS and fire service personnel.
