SAVE THE DATE!
We are excited to announce the location and dates for WEDOC 2018! This annual conference will be hosted at the iconic Fairmont Empress in Victoria, BC on April 19-20, 2018.
Situated on the majestic seashore of beautiful Victoria BC, next year’s conference was inspired by surfing imagery. The surfer represents our emergency teams walking fearlessly into the wild ocean of the ED, into overwhelming waves of patients with uncertainty and danger lurking just beneath the surface. Bringing together everyone who is involved in emergency operations from across Western Canada, we will share stories, successes, and challenges commonly faced in our EDs. With various cross-provincial speaker panels, invited speakers, and innovative abstracts, we expect to tackle many shared issues and ideas to improve our EDs. Our popular learning buffets will be back — where participants meet with speakers in intimate small table discussions to learn, share, and expand on various concepts. We are also bringing back the awards for the BEST PERFORMING EDs! We encourage you to share this unique ED operations conference with all of your team members and join us at the historic Fairmont Empress Hotel where we have carved out plenty of social time to meet and mingle with other teams across Western Canada. Please join us in beautiful Victoria BC for another great year at WEDOC!
