Emergency Medicine Pharmacotherapy with Resuscitation (EMPoweRx) Conference (HOME STUDY)


 
Home Studies from the Emergency Medicine Pharmacotherapy with Resuscitation (EMPoweRx) Conference
 
Program Description
Emergency medicine pharmacotherapy has been one of the most explosive specialties within clinical pharmacy over the past 20 years. While still new, emergency medicine pharmacists and pharmacotherapy has not had its own platform to present the latest evidence and issues facing emergency medicine pharmacy, until now. The EmpoweRx conference is a hybrid conference that is designed solely by practicing emergency medicine pharmacists and will include a multidisciplinary and multispecialty speaker lineup to present on the latest in resuscitation, emergency medicine pharmacotherapy, and administrative issues that are unique to the ED. We are excited to partner with Pharmacy & Acute Care University and the Pharm So Hard Podcast to spread the multimedia capacity of the conference.
 
Join us for the most inspiring, energizing, and educational international event in emergency medicine pharmacotherapy.
