Preconference: Neonatal Pharmacology

Pharmacotherapy is an essential element of the overall treatment plan for the critically ill neonate, requiring frequent evaluation, diligent follow-up and an eye on the clinical “big picture”.   New guidelines and evidence must be carefully considered before incorporating the information into bedside practice.  Join us and return to work with new insights into the unique complexities of pharmacologically treating critically ill newborns.

This Preconference will enable you to:

  • Provide safe pharmacologic treatment of neonates through reduction of medication errors and implementation of evidence-based dosing guidelines.
  • Evaluate the impact of pain and sedation management on neurologic outcomes.
  • Evaluate pharmacologic aspects of neonatal nutrition.
  • Discuss antifungal and antibiotic choices for critically ill neonates.

Location

Host City: NEW ORLEANS

The soul of New Orleans is thriving!  The birthplace of Jazz and festive home of Mardi Gras, New Orleans provides an exciting, colorful setting for the conference “The Fetus & Newborn.”  Stroll through the picturesque French Quarter and view quaint Italian courtyards, sculpted fountains and sprawling Victorian mansions.  Venture to Bourbon Street, the historic center of the French Quarter, known for its lively music, folklore, mystery and iconic architecture as well as its famous night life.  Take in a show at Preservation Hall and hear New Orleans musicians playing jazz, explore fine antique shops and art galleries on Royal Street or stop by St. Louis Cathedral and relax as you watch the artists gather around Jackson Square.

A visit to New Orleans would not be complete without sampling its world-renowned restaurants, serving the Cajun and Creole cuisine that helps define this city’s heritage. Relax any time of the day with a fresh hot beignet and café au lait at Café du Monde.  Enjoy celebrated restaurants, including Commander’s Palace, Emeril’s, K-Paul’s, Acme Oyster House, Tujague’s, Mother’s, and Herbsaint for a gastronomic treat. Stop by Pat O’Brien’s on Bourbon Street and try their famous libation—the Hurricane!—as you take in the local jazz scene.

New Orleans offers an abundance of adventures for you to enjoy!  Climb aboard the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar for a ramble uptown to the Garden District and Audubon Park and Zoo.  The Swamp & Bayou Tour, plantation tours and Garden District and French Quarter Walking Tours are available through Gray Lines.  The Steamboat Natchez is moored in the heart of the French Quarter and open for dockside dining and beverages.  You’ll also want to visit the National World War II Museum, with its priceless artifacts, displays, oral histories and live entertainment reminiscent of the era. Don’t forget Harrah’s Casino, the Riverwalk Marketplace, and a tour of Mardi Gras World for a peek behind the scenes at the artistry and imagination involved in planning this magical annual celebration.

Overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, adjacent to the Riverwalk Marketplace and two blocks from the world famous French Quarter, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel will serve as conference headquarters for this meeting.  In addition to placing you in the center of all the excitement and energy of incomparable, unforgettable New Orleans, the hotel offers three restaurants, two cocktail areas and Pete Fountain's Jazz Club for a taste of that wonderful music that uniquely belongs to this town.  A health club, two outdoor heated pools, tennis and racquet ball are just a few of the services available to you at your home away from home.

For dining, entertainment and sightseeing, there’s no place like New Orleans.  To receive more information, call the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau at (800) 672-6124 or visit the website at www.neworleanscvb.com.  See you there!

NCC Coding

PRECONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Neonatal Pharmacology

Pharmacotherapy is an essential element of the overall treatment plan for the critically ill neonate, requiring frequent evaluation, diligent follow-up and an eye on the clinical “big picture”.   New guidelines and evidence must be carefully considered before incorporating the information into bedside practice.  Join us and return to work with new insights into the unique complexities of pharmacologically treating critically ill newborns.

This Preconference will enable you to:

  • Provide safe pharmacologic treatment of neonates through reduction of medication errors and implementation of evidence-based dosing guidelines.
  • Evaluate the impact of pain and sedation management on neurologic outcomes.
  • Discuss antifungal and antibiotic choices for critically ill neonates.
  • Evaluate pharmacologic aspects of neonatal nutrition.
