For the first time ever, Sanford hosted a pediatric trauma symposium. As part of their training, doctors and nurses used simulators to practice their skills during different situations. One simulator focused solely on infants. Health professionals also shared ideas and ways to improve child care through satellite sessions.
"It’s the first ever pediatric trauma symposium and we're hoping to continue it each year and it’s a very valuable and educational experience for everybody that’s here,” said Jon G. Ryckman, of pediatric surgery.
Sanford is the only certified pediatric trauma center in the state of South Dakota.
