2016 Instructor Seminar

Sirius hosted its annual Instructor Seminar on 19-21 February 2016 in Sainte-Adèle, QC. The Seminar provides an important opportunity for Sirius instructors from across Canada to refresh and update their advanced medical and teaching skills and knowledge. Presentations included a review of the current standards of soft tissue wound management by our medical director Marc Gosselin MD. Technical skills sessions included coverage of injections, airway management and immobilization. As always, it was a dynamic and lively weekend and great to reconnect among colleagues again.
