Destin, Florida

1 2 3 4

Destin has grown from a historic fishing village to a premiere resort destination. The city sits along the coast in the Florida Panhandle, at the end of a peninsula separating Choctawhatchee Bay from the Gulf of Mexico. The area is famous for its emerald-colored waters and sugar-white sand beaches, hence the nickname “Emerald Coast”. Visit the Village of Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin Resort for shopping, dining, and exciting nightlife. The Market Shops and Silver Sands Factory Outlet Stores, both nearby, offer more shopping.

Why not try Big Kahuna Water Park, just a short drive away, or if you’re willing to travel a little farther, check out the Ebro Dog Track for greyhound racing. Eden State Gardens and Mansion is a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful scenery and perhaps a picnic. Make a trip to the Harborwalk Marina at the foot of the Destin bridge where you can rent a slip or chat with fishermen to perhaps pick up a few deep sea fishing secrets. Climb aboard a chartered fishing or party boat or simply lounge on the beach.

Destin can be accessed by arriving in the following airports: Okaloosa County Air Terminal (approx. 35 min drive); Northwest Florida Regional Airport (approx. 45 min drive); Pensacola Regional Municipal Airport (approx. 1 hr drive); Panama City Airport (approx. 1-1/2 hr drive).

All-suite accommodations, four-diamond service, and a sparkling location along the beaches of the Emerald Coast. Accommodations include refrigerator, microwave, wet bar, coffee/tea maker, sleeper sofa, sitting area, private balcony, internet access (fee may apply), safe, iron/board, hairdryer, and complimentary newspaper.

If you really want to be wined and dined, make a reservation at Seagar’s, featuring an 800-label wine cellar, prime steaks and seafood, plus a superb location. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa treatment at the Serenity by the Sea Spa, or play a game of golf on one of four championship courses at the resort.

The Hilton Sandestin is located minutes from Village of Baytowne Wharf; a short drive from Eden State Park, Gulfarium, and Destin Fishing Docks; and midway between Pensacola and Panama City.

PROGRAM PURPOSE

Presentations are designed to facilitate the physician, nurse specialist, and other providers maintaining skills of the same kind to review and update knowledge and abilities in one or more of these areas vital to the practicing professional:

Possess the scientific background for clinical practice

Maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of not only the specialty, but also of all additional related disciplines which may impact it

Maintain an up-to-the-minute armamentarium of knowledge and skills for the selection and use of complex equipment, pharmacological agents, and procedures necessary for the provision of quality patient care

Provide assistance with and support of other service providers, departments, institutions, and organizations dependent upon the professional expertise of the practitioner

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

Apply the pertinent physical and behavioral sciences - to include but not be limited to advanced anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and social sciences - as they impact and are affected by the planning, delivery, and monitoring of anesthesia and related services inherent in the anesthesia professions.

Explain the selection, dosing considerations with methods of administration, safe use, and contraindications and precautions of presented pharmacological agents through the understanding of their physico-chemical properties, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, updated uses, and more recently developed additional, related, and similar drugs.

Outline comprehensive management plans for the group of patients discussed, whether related in age, physical status, cultural background, invasive procedure, anesthetic or analgesic requirements, clinical setting, adverse reactions, and/or goals of care.

Apply the principles of safety and asepsis in the performance of anesthetic procedures and administrations, equipment use, and other applications encountered during the provision of anesthesia and analgesia whether in the surgical unit, the labor and delivery suite, the pain management clinic, or other more remote location of anesthetizing services.

Incorporate the appropriate recommendations and/or requirements of pertinent external organizations, institutions, and professional groups - recognized as serving as the authority for and/or holding the responsibility to compile and approve such tenets - in the provision of anesthesia and related services, whether medical, legal, philosophical, ethical, or health care management standards.

Apply the new techniques in the clinical setting of the participant.
