Utilizing the Flipped Classroom, Simulation-Based Mastery Learning and Group Learning to Teach and Evaluate Lumbar Puncture SkillsDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8RW58
The goal of the curriculum is to teach and evaluate senior medical students / emergency medicine residents on the performance of a lumbar puncture using a group learning protocol. At the completion of the training session, learners should be able to: 1) Demonstrate how to perform a LP on an adult patient by achieving the minimum passing standard on the checklist, 2) state the indications and contraindications of performing a LP, and 3) state the potential complications that can occur after performing a LP.
By the end of the activity, learners should be able to: 1) Calculate an anion and osmolal gap. 2) Recognize poisonings amenable to hemodialysis. 3) Interpret EKG changes related to a variety of ingestions, including beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers, digitalis, and tricyclic antidepressants. 4) Recognize poisonous plants and their clinical toxidromes. 5) Calculate loading dose of N-acetylcysteine as antidote for acute acetaminophen ingestion. 6) Collaborate as a team to arrive at solutions of problems. 7) Recognize poisons that have available antidotes 8) Know the clinical effect of various types of snake envenomations. 9) Recognize the toxicity associated with at least four household chemicals. 10) Know the antidotes for six common poisonings.
By the end of this session, the learner will be able to: 1) Recognize normal and abnormal left heart global function 2) Recognize normal and abnormal right heart global function 3) Recognize pericardial effusions and pericardial tamponade
At the end of this module, the learner will be able to: 1) list the diagnoses critical to the emergency physician that may present with headache; 2) identify key historical and examination findings that help differentiate primary (benign) from secondary (serious) causes of headache; 3) discuss the indications for diagnostic imaging, lumbar puncture and laboratory testing in patients with headache; 4) recognize life-threatening diagnoses on CT imaging and CSF examination; 5) describe treatment strategies to relieve headache symptoms.
