EMCREG-International has been holding educational symposia for more than 20 years with our first live educational event occurring in 1998 at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) annual scientific session in San Diego, California . The strong turnout and reviews from that first event launched what would become a 20-year educational tradition, with EMCREG holding over 30 live events at the annual scientific sessions for ACEP, the Society of Academic Emergency Medicine and more recently the American Heart Association.
The popularity of our symposia resulted from consistent cutting-edge and evidence-based content presented by academic experts in the field in a strictly unbiased fashion. What began primarily as a cardiovascular emergencies format quickly evolved into topics covering many important disease processes presenting to emergency and acute care physicians. Our state-of-the-art and evidence-based topics evolved from primarily acute coronary syndromes to eventual cover many acute care treatment and management topics including, but not limited to, acute ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, traumatic brain injury, hypertensive emergencies, acute decompensated heart failure, severe bleeding, anticoagulation, septic shock, venous thromboembolism, cardiac biomarkers, point-of-care testing, clinical guidelines, and critical topics. And what began as an emergency medicine audience evolved to include cardiology, hospital medicine, nurse practitioners, intensivisits and other clinicians treating patients in the acute care setting.
