  • The latest recommendations for initial gastrointestinal decontamination
  • When and how to use advanced decontamination techniques including lipid therapy and gastric lavage
  • Approach to the patient with neurologic signs of toxicity including specific nursing interventions
  • Updates on the management of some of the most common toxicities seen in practice including NSAIDs, chocolate, anticoagulant rodenticides and more!
