The Learning Never Stops...
Some find it hard to admit that they don't know everything. When you are in the medical profession, however, it is a necessity to admit when you don't know and seek continuing education. Where would we be with regards to surgery techniques if we never adapted and changed? What about the management of concussions or spineboarding techniques? No matter what, come to grips with the idea that what you know today is not sufficient for tomorrow.
EKU faculty, preceptors, former students, area clinicians and a current student spent part of the weekend updating their skills and practicing the creation of IV access on patients. EKU's AT Faculty, Dr. Eric Fuchs, led the continuing education event with supporting evidence for the need of the skill, explanation of the process and demonstration/practice. This event was done in conjunction with the Kentucky Athletic Trainers' Society and was possible through a collaboration with EKU's Nursing Programs.
Thanks to all those that worked to make this possible so EKU faculty, preceptors, and alumni could maintain the highest levels of care through educational advancement. Special thanks to Dr. Fuchs who has continued to update his skills and share that with others!
