2019 STEMI Conference Information

2019 Montana STEMI Conference

Thursday, May 2 – The Lodge at Whitefish, MT

The Cardiac Ready Communities Program and the American Heart Association Mission Lifeline Program, with support from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, are once again hosting the state wide STEMI Conference. The Mission Lifeline initiative was created by AHA to assist healthcare professionals such as EMTs, physicians, nurses, and quality improvement specialists, improve the current STEMI system of care in Montana. In the spring of 2018, the Cardiac Ready Communities Program at MT DPHHS assumed responsibility for the goals and outcomes of the Mission Lifeline initiative into the larger Cardiac System of Care for Montana. The mission of the program is to increase survival and decrease disability from cardiovascular emergencies through development and implementation of high-performance systems of care across the state.

The 2019 STEMI Conference will focus on recognition and treatment of STEMI conditions within the context of a system of care. General sessions will provide an overview of current treatment guidelines and goals, discuss consequences of STEMI, and look to developing a team approach to care. Breakout sessions will be aimed at the EMS professionals and hospital providers. The day will conclude with a panel presentation of a case study in STEMI care from the patient perspective.

EMS professionals will receive CEUs from the EMS TS office and nursing CEUs will be provided through MNA.

Registration is $35 – Late Registration $50 after 3/28/19

 

For more information, contact Janet Trethewey at 406.444.0442
