Rural Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Rounds 2022

Rural Point-of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Rounds

Overview

In partnership with the Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc), we are excited to invite you to the Rural POCUS Rounds!

This series of virtual rounds will be based on rurally focused POCUS topics, learnings and situations. The Rural POCUS Rounds series aims to increase the use of, experience with, and community surrounding point-of-care ultrasound for rural based healthcare providers.

The rounds will seek to

  • improve rural POCUS skills and confidence 
  • build a POCUS community of practice including mentoring, and ultimately better patient care


Each session will include presentation-style learning and time for volunteered case studies. Attendees will have an opportunity to share real-life scans and work through specific scenarios. 

Zoom link, and session information will be emailed to those who have registered prior to each session.
