Our objectives were to provide our senior residents with exposure to various aspects of the field of MedEd, to further develop their teaching skills and to encourage them to consider a career in academic emergency medicine.
The goals of this curriculum are to provide residents with an introduction to teaching techniques that can be utilized on-shift to facilitate an excellent educational experience for junior learners while balancing the resident’s patient care responsibilities.
The primary goal of this observation medicine curriculum is to train current EM residents in short-term acute care beyond the initial ED visit. This entails caring for patients from the time of their arrival to the OU to the point when a final disposition from the OU is determined, be it inpatient admission or discharge to home.
By the end of this simulation, learners will be able to: 1) Identify potential impairment in the form of alcohol intoxication in a physician colleague; 2) demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively with the colleague and remove them from the patient care environment; 3) discuss the appropriate next steps in identifying long-term wellness resources for the impaired colleague; and 4) demonstrate understanding of the need to continue to provide care for the patients by moving the case forward.
This curriculum is intended to maintain a knowledge base of MCI processes to mitigate degradation of necessary knowledge between hands-on MCI training.
The Continuous Residency Improvement Committee (CRIC) – A Novel Twist for Program Evaluation in an Academic Emergency Medicine Residency ProgramDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8SD17
The purpose of this innovation was to develop a novel approach to continuous program evaluation and improvement using a multisource feedback design to improve resident satisfaction with the program’s responsiveness to feedback while addressing the ACGME mandate for self-study.
The purpose of this presentation is to provide ED providers with a tool that may improve the safety of their patient handoffs. By the end of this presentation, the learner will be able to 1) describe the importance of safe and efficient handoffs, 2) recall each element of the I-PASS mnemonic, and 3) demonstrate an understanding of how it can be feasibly performed in a busy ED setting.
