Two-Screen Virtual Board Game Didactic for Teaching Wilderness and Environmental Medicine Topics to Emergency Medicine ResidentsDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8J343
By the end of this didactic, the learner will: 1) describe the basics of the presentation of each topic listed above; 2) recall the basics of management of each topic listed above; and 3) improve learners’ preparedness for the Emergency Medicine Inservice Exam and Written Board Examination
ABSTRACT: Audience: This content is intended for emergency medicine faculty. Introduction: Faculty at our institution noted that it can be easy to identify and address the knowledge gaps of junior learners. However, they often find different skills are needed when precepting senior residents, a sentiment shared by faculty at other institutions.1 To foster the skills needed for lifelong learning and
By the end of the lecture, learners should be able to: 1) initiate the evaluation of a poisoned patient, 2) identify key interventions to support airway, breathing, and circulation, 3) identify the three components of risk assessment in the poisoned patient, 4) list the four options for gastric decontamination, and 5) select standard diagnostic labs and tests commonly used in evaluating poisoned patients.
Family Game Show-style Didactic for Teaching Nervous System Disorders during Emergency Medicine TrainingDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8D357
By the end of this didactic exercise the learner will: 1) name 13 important neurologic conditions related to emergency medicine: TPA (tissue plasminogen activator) contraindications/TPA eligibility, optic neuritis, botulism, giant cell (temporal) arteritis, viral encephalitis, neurocysticercosis, rabies, myasthenia gravis, neurosyphilis, status epilepticus, Bell’s palsy, dementia vs. delirium, acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (Guillain-Barré); 2) recognize five pattern words associated with each neurologic condition; 3) understand exam findings, diagnostic tests, and/or treatments for 13 important neurologic conditions.
By the end of this module, participants should be able to: 1) review the normal physiology of the pleural space; 2) discuss the pathophysiology of pneumothorax; 3) describe the clinical presentation of pneumothorax; 4) identify pneumothorax on a chest radiograph; and 5) review treatment options for pneumothorax.
