OhioHealth Continuing Medical Education presents:

Grant Level I Trauma Care Conference 2012

November 13 & 14, 2012

The Conference Center at NorthPointe

9243 Columbus Pike Lewis Center, OH 43035

This past year our program has been one of growth. Professionally we have strengthened our program with physicians, staff and programs and are pleased to share what we have learned over the past year.  Clinically we are delivering world class care for an ever increasing number of patients.  We have expanded our services to include acute care surgery and increased our excellent Trauma Nurse Practioner program. 

This year’s conference will explore traditional practices versus current evidence based practices that are beneficial to the trauma patient.  You will interact with the presenters as they challenge your knowledge using the Audience Response System throughout the two days. 


We are excited to present Dr. Kenji Inaba, MS, MD, FRCSC, FACS, from Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center, University of Southern California speaking about non-invasive surgical intervention on complex liver injuries and management of penetrating thoracic injuries.  It is our hope that you will find the conference intellectually challenging and professionally rewarding.

Have a wonderful National Nurses Week! May 6-12, 2011

On May 6, 2011, the American Nurses Association is sponsoring National Nurses Week. The purpose of National Nurses Week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles registered nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the American people.

To celebrate National Nurses Week, LifeLink would like to pay tribute to all of our nurses, those of Grant Medical Center and other who provide highly skilled, safe and quality care in a variety of settings, and who encounter increased challenges to their professional and ethical commitment to deliver essential health care.

Have a wonderful National Nurses Week!
