On May 22, NYSPFP will host an educational webinar featuring E. Wesley Ely, M.D., M.P.H., focused on the link between ventilator associated events (VAE) and delirium in ventilated patients. Dr. Ely is a national expert on improving care and outcomes of critically ill patients, having conducted extensive research focused on the problems facing older patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
