Breakout Sessions

The following six breakout sessions will be offered during the conference. You will have the opportunity to choose the sessions you would like to attend when you complete the online registration form. 

1. How to Reduce Hemolysis in the NICU
During this breakout session, we will discuss the reasons for an increased rate of hemolysis in the NICU population, how this impacts the need for recollection of specimens, and potential opportunities for reducing cancelled laboratory tests. We will discuss the findings of a quality improvement project performed at St. Marys Hospital that used evidence-based medicine to drive practice change in the NICU.

2. Putting Out the Fire: Strategies to Deal with Burnout
Today’s workers deal with juggling and balancing many different roles. As demands from work and home increase, employees can feel drained of internal resources. This program takes a proactive approach to help workers understand burnout and stress. The focus will be on strategies for prevention and recovery from burnout to maximize employee well-being. A variety of stress management tools will be introduced along with ideas for how each individual can positively impact their work environment.

3. Phlebotomy Training
In this breakout session, we will cover what possibilities are available in the didactics of phlebotomy, how much laboratory and clinical exposure is necessary and how to prepare students for the national certification exam. We will also discuss Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) and other electronic resources as well as the assurance of trainer competence.

4. Helping Parents and Children Through Painful Procedures
In this breakout session, we will cover how to recognize pain in children and how to identify how to help children through painful procedures. We will also describe the “Comfort Positions” parents can use to support their child during medical procedures.

5. Blood Culture Update
In this breakout session, Dr. Patel will review the following: Guidelines for blood cultures, what goes on in the laboratory, blood culture contamination and rapid testing of positive blood culture bottles.

6. Supervisor Panel Discussion
