Best-selling author Marcus Engel, MS, will deliver a keynote speech, The Other End of the Stethoscope. As a college freshman, Mr. Engel was blinded and nearly killed after being struck by a drunk driver. Following two years of rehabilitation, more than 300 hours of reconstructive facial surgery, and a multitude of life changes, Mr. Engel brings a unique perspective to patient care. Many nursing schools nationwide have used his presentation to teach the fundamentals of caregiving. He is working on his fifth book, Narrative Nursing, to help nurses overcome compassion fatigue and burnout.
Attendees at this 10th ACS NSQIP National Conference will enjoy a wide range of informative workshops, interactive general and breakout sessions on quality improvement, and abundant networking opportunities.
