Health care professionals are invited to advance their professional practice by attending one of University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s free seminars, “Advancing Cardiac Care at Shore Regional Health: Primary and Elective Angioplasty.” These educational presentations will be held on Wednesday, March 7 at Layton’s Chance Winery in Vienna, Md., and March 28 at Knoxie’s Table in Stevensville, Md.; both events begin at 5:30 p.m.

These events are designed to provide registered nurses with additional tools and knowledge to take their critical care practice to the next level. On hand to share his field expertise is University of Maryland Community Medical Group Cardiologist, Jeffery Etherton, MD. Dr. Etherton currently practices at UM Shore Medical Centers at Dorchester and Easton and was one of the key contributors to bringing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) to UM Shore Regional Health and to patients of the mid-shore.  Additional education will be provided by a member of UM Shore Regional Health’s cardiology team.

Healthcare professionals are encouraged to attend the event and network with leaders from critical care, emergency departments, patient experience and Magnet® & professional practice. Registered Nurses who attend the event are eligible to earn 1 contact hour credit.
