Brilli and M. DeVita 2 INTENT AND OVERVIEW A Rapid Response System (RRS) is an organized structure of administrative, clinical, and quality improvement functions whose intent is to prevent harm and death in patients demonstrating physiologic deterioration in the hospital. The most widely recognized component is the response (or efferent) arm commonly called a Medical Emergency Team (MET) or Rapid Response Team (RRT). They are a preplanned group of health care practitioners who respond to crises. The team may be the same as or different from the hospital’s “code” team, but they have a critical difference: they respond prior to an arrest in an attempt to prevent the arrest from occurring. MET and RRT are rapidly gaining acceptance in the U.S., Australia, and Europe. This year’s course returns to its 2-day format to accommodate a higher efficiency learning experience. There are workshops, pro-con debates, tutorials, and of course the highly successful panel discussions utilized last year. Once again, participants are invited to submit abstracts and present posters if accepted (see “Abstracts” on page 23 ). Faculty will formally visit every poster to foster collaboration. WHO SHOULD AT TEND This course is designed for patient safety officers, hospitalists and hospital based physicians, critical care medicine physicians, critical care and general ward nursing staff, hospital administrators, nursing directors, respiratory care directors, and finally resuscitation and clinical outcomes researchers as well as other health care professionals. CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 13.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Other health care professionals are awarded 1.30 continuing education units (CEU’s) which are equal to 13.0 contact hours. MEETING LOCATION The conference will be held at the David L. Lawrence Conference Center located in downtown Pittsburgh across from the Westin Hotel. The Convention Center address is 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. (See “Accommodations” on page 22).
