In addition to the Oncologic Emergency Medicine Conference (information at, we will be offering a 3.5-hour workshop aimed at preparing Healthcare Professionals (HCP) to become effective responders during in-flight emergencies.

It will cover essential topics such as the physiologic stress of flying, the epidemiology of in-flight medical emergencies, the medical-legal considerations of responding, resources available to responders on a plane, and a structured approach to the most common in-flight chief complaints. We will integrate and emphasize important concepts via simulation helping HCP become better equipped in responding to most types of in-flight medical emergencies.
