At WineCollective, we understand the importance of health and appreciate an opportunity to support our health care workers. We were especially proud to help sponsor the 2012 ICU education day at the Foothills Hospital. As Critical Care nurse Pam Hruska explains, this is an important event meant to promote broader education for those responsible for caring for our health:
“Each year we organize this full day conference for critical care nurses, physiotherapists and respiratory therapists to provide a forum to refine knowledge and skills on relevant topics in our clinical practice.
Our enrollment this year included 120 critical care staff from all intensive care units within the city and we had six guest speakers. Our topics ranged from hemodynamic support, ecstasy & PMMA overdose, care of organ donors, the experience of life and death in the ICU, treatment of stroke patients, and an overview of critical care provided in STARS transport.”
WineCollective provided two packages as door prizes for the event. The winners were two hard-working Critical Care Nurses:
Congratulations! We’re more than happy to support the frontlines of Critical Care for the important and compassionate work they do.
On a side note, we think that wine and your health go hand in hand!
