FOCUS OF THE EDUCATIONAL MEETING
Signature Conference 2018 is designed to provide practitioners with up-to-date, evidence-based information on commonly encountered medical issues, while suggesting pragmatic approaches to clinical management. The discussion-based format encourages learner participation through dynamic interactive presentations and clinical case dialogue.

Our national speakers will present and critically assess recent advancements and industry updates.

This medical conference offers opportunity for collaboration with leading experts in the field of medicine.  Key elements to enhance patient care and improve outcomes will be discussed, such as:

  • Assess and provide patients with an accurate diagnosis and optimal care of a broad range of common disorders;
  • Utilize current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of frequently encountered therapeutic issues;
  • Formulate comprehensive evidence-based interventions and treatment strategies to reduce modifiable risk factors and improve long term outcomes. 

The multi-tracked agenda offers focused discourse in General Medicine, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery and Oncology.

STATEMENT OF NEED
Medical innovation (rapid scientific and technological advances and applied clinic data) force the bedside caregiver to master copious amounts of information.  Further, this information (new skills, new technology, new technique, etc.) must be translated into practice protocol to effectively care for patients.  For the general practitioner, the amount of new knowledge needed for best care can be daunting.  Signature Conference 2018 will compile data, research evidence of best care and relate proven strategies for implementation.  For the specialist, the medical conference will enhance knowledge base and core competencies.

EXPECTED OUTCOME
Physicians and members of the multi-disciplinary team will walk away with specific strategies thus making it easy to effectively implement the latest data driven advances into practice. The goal is to progress clinical competence, thereby, improving patient experience and outcomes.
