Title: 2-Day POCUS Workshop
Details: Date: 20 – 21 August 2022 (Saturday and Sunday)
Venue: Suntec, Hall 404, Level 4
Course Director: Dr Lau Yie Hui
Faculty: TBA
Synopsis: This 2-day workshop is designed for any healthcare professional who wishes to learn core POCUS skills that is applicable to a wide range of settings. This workshop focuses on image acquisition components of POCUS, and it would be appropriate for learners who would like either a taste or refresher of foundational POCUS skills.

It utilises a small-group, hands-on format, where participants will get to practice on live models and receive instant feedback regarding their techniques. There will also opportunity for Meet the Expert discussions during each workshop.

It can be attended as individual modules (with the exception of Introduction to CCE which comprises of 2 modules). Pre-reading material will be provided prior to the workshops.

Course Objective: At the end of the workshop, participants will have had exposure on how to perform POCUS on various organ systems and discussions on clinical applications.
Target Audience: • Junior doctors hoping to be exposure to the full breadth of POCUS
• Senior doctors hoping to refresh their knowledge
• Allied health, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists

Title: Mechanical Ventilation Workshop
Details: Date: 20 – 21 August 2022 (Saturday and Sunday)
Venue: Suntec, Hall 404, Level 4
Course Director: Dr Pipetius Quah
Faculty: Dr See Kay Choong
Dr Sewa Duu Wen
Dr Phua Ser Hon
Synopsis: This 2-day workshop is designed for healthcare professionals who look after ventilated patients. The workshop will cover principles of mechanical ventilation, clinical application to different patient groups, troubleshooting, weaning, and learning about the newer modes of ventilation.
Course Objective: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to understand the basics of patient-ventilator interaction, respiratory mechanics, how and when to use mechanical ventilation and understand the complications of mechanical ventilation.

Participants will be able to understand the different modes of ventilation and the options of using the various modes. Participants will be able to understand how to wean patients from mechanical ventilation and describe an approach for difficult ventilator weaning.

Target Audience: Healthcare professionals who look after ventilated patients, including junior doctors who will work in the Emergency Department or ICU, senior doctors who would like a refresher on mechanical ventilation, nurse practitioners and allied health who look after ventilated patients.
