In line with Informa Life Sciences’ philosophy of ‘Exhibition with Education’, Saudi Health offers a comprehensive multi-tracked congress including a diverse range of conferences covering a broad range of specific medical disciplines. Key global issues that will be debated at the conferences include:
Imaging Administration Conference
Medical laboratories (MEDLAB) Conference
Biomedical Engineering Conference
Executive Nursing Conference
Non Communicable Diseases
Saudi Radiology Technologists Conference (SRTC)
The 1st Saudi Health Executive Nursing conference will run under the theme of “developing nursing: the next step”. The conference will take be on topics directly relevant to nurses throughout the kingdom, with three sessions dedicated to leadership, research and strategic direction, and a fourth session dedicated to assisting nursing leadership in clinical advancement and accreditation. This conference will lead towards developing the Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSA’s) which lead to a highly effective, patient-centric nursing attitude.
Nursing is at the core of most patient management within the hospital, and the role continues to develop. The nursing profession is continuing to take on more responsibility at every level, and this is tending to place more decision making in the hands of nurses around the world. Therefore, the first Nursing conference to be held at Saudi Health will be focussing on providing nurses with much valued knowledge and practical advice on subjects related to leadership, as well as a strategic view of the pro.
SAUDI RADIOLOGY TECHNOLOGISTS CONFERENCE
Saudi Health is hosting the fourth Saudi Radiological Technologists conference. This will be a great opportunity for radiological technologists to meet and discuss the latest advances in the field. This conference will focus on the most important modalities currently in usage in the kingdom, including US, PET/CT and general X ray. The conference will also have sessions on some of the most crucial issues associated with the radiological profession, including dose management for PET scans, as well as practical techniques for countering radiation in X rays. There will also be an important update on the medical and legal factors at play when practicing as a radiographer in the 21st century.
ADMINISTRATION IN IMAGING
The radiology department is arguable the most complex in the hospital. It is both diagnostic and treatment-focussed, with new modalities and treatment methods entering into usage far more regularly than in any other section of the medical profession. Added complexity from tele-medicine and computing techniques gives this discipline a need for sophisticated administrative tools with which to manage workflows and clinical updates.
The Administration in Imaging conference will do just that. It will offer practical solutions to many of the most complicated and knotty issues which administrators face when looking at the department, as well as show some novel ways with which to deal with computerisation, and the associated workforce related issues which this raises.
Cardiology is a field which is consistently changing, as well as diversifying in both scope and scale. Saudi Arabia, perhaps more than any other country, is dealing with a massive demographic and life-style shift, placing it at the front line of many of the most pressing issues in cardiology and healthcare.
In collaboration with the Saudi Heart Association, this conference will give a catch up on the latest updates in Lipidology, cholestoral and ACS for those who are on the front line of the health care profession. It will give timely, and appropriate, information and treatment advise on all ranges of lifestyle related heart diseases as well as an insight into the macro-level cardiac issues which effect all members of the medical profession in Saudi Arabia.
NON COMMUNICABLE DISEASES
Sedentary lifestyles, as well as unhealthy diet, are driving many members of Saudi society towards Diabetes and other associated health issues. Organised in co-operation with the Ministry of Health, this conference will give a timely update on the most pressing issues which primary health care professionals need to deal with, in particular with both Diabetes and hypertension. These conditions are not only dangerous in themselves, but which can have serious complicating repercussions on any other condition which individuals may acquire.
As a crucial component of healthcare, Laboratory Medicine provides all those involved in the healthcare system with crucial information that can make the difference in the quality, safety and efficacy of care given to patients. Doctors across all specialties depend on laboratories’ results to make critical decisions about prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
MEDLAB Saudi will focus on all aspects of Laboratory management. The issue of quality, accreditation and risk management will be discussed as well as the future of Laboratory medicine and the challenges laboratory management is facing.
BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING CONFERENCE
Bio Medical Engineers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia play a vital role within Healthcare Institutions. Their profile is integral to the outcomes a physician achieves. It is by far the core foundation in gaining patient satisfaction. The future of biomedics will transform healthcare delivery; therefore this conference aims to extend exclusive learning experiences via innovation and e-technology. Each delegate will leave via tools to improve and implement their department, preparing them for an accreditation
