This popular annual event – at the heart of the RCP conferences programme – will update the skills of delegates and ensure that they have the knowledge required on the acute medical take.
This popular annual event will discuss the most evolving areas in acute medicine and showcase a different blend of specialties. The highlights of this year's programme, shaped by your feedback, will cover acute state of mental health, management in diabetic emergencies and risks of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy.
Conveniently delivered in just 1 day, the conference covers common clinical conditions which present particular challenges to clinicians working in this area.
The programme has been informed by delegate feedback from the 2016 conference. It includes interactive sessions and take-home messages that can be applied to day-to-day practice.
Programme organiser Dr Nikhil Premchand, training programme director at Health Education North East for acute medicine and infectious diseases, said:
'Acute medicine' is an opportunity to update physicians in current management of ambulatory conditions and the conundra they may face when on call. You will also get an insight into embedding research and dealing with unexpected findings.
