Conference Description 

During the period of transport, critically ill neonates and children are at risk from disease, injury, and the transport itself. This risk can be minimized by good communication between the referring and receiving providers, careful evaluation and management, anticipation of complications, and a well-equipped and well-trained team. This conference provides a comprehensive approach to clinical issues related to neonatal and pediatric transport.

Target Audience

Advanced practice providers, nurses, paramedics, physicians, and respiratory therapists, who have training in the transport of neonatal and pediatric patients to tertiary care centers.

With his unique experience he enjoys creatively inspiring those around him in public safety to become the best personal version of themselves, in order to become the best possible provider. Jim is the founder and director of Mission Ready, a program that is dedicated to first responder professional development and promoting excellence in the field.
