I just received the new AVA brochure and what I found of interest is that 35% or 10 hours of the 35 hoiurs of general sessions and break-out sessions is being giving by one industry member's direct employees.
I find this conference brochure to be very mind boggling. We need to develop clinical speakers who are not industry members to submit for talks at this point.
Where are you practicing in the field clinicians out there who can speak to care and maintenance or troubleshooting of lines or vein assessment or ultasound techniques?
Do you not exist? Did you not submit? Are you afraid to speak?
It is time for you to come forward and give us your real life experiences. I want to hear your research and your clinical expertise. Please submit for next year as I do not need to hear an industry conference. I want to hear the real in the field stuff. I want to hear real everyday strategies and real everyday clinical feedback so I can learn.
