Each concurrent session is 50 minutes long with 15 minutes
for travel to the next session – lunch is 1230 to 1330.
Concurrent sessions have been identified as designed for
physicians/nurse practitioners, nurses or both (multi-disciplinary).
The focus of the GROUP A sessions is for the identified health
professionals, although other disciplines are welcome to attend.
GROUP B (hands-on/demo) workshops are restricted to the
identified health discipline group. Due to the hands-on and/or
demo component and limited capacity of certain sessions,
participants will be assigned to a maximum of two of the
workshops in GROUP B.
Most sessions will be held at the Banff Park Lodge, although
some GROUP B workshops will be held at the Mineral Springs
Hospital next to the hotel.
