The primary goal of this curriculum is to teach EM interns critical thinking; clinical decision making; and presentation, communication, documentation and procedural skills. The secondary goal is to identify interns who might not be performing at the expected level for potential early intervention. In addition, we wanted to ensure that all interns have achieved Level 1 milestones in the patient care, systems-based practices, and interpersonal and communication competencies.

By the end of this educational session, the learner will: 1) understand indications and contraindications for suture repair of lacerations, 2) compare when various types of wound repair are appropriate: such as sutures, staples, tissue adhesive and tissue tape, as well as what size of suture material is appropriate depending on the location of the laceration on the body, 3) list the appropriate types and sizes of suture for various locations and types of lacerations, 4) understand the definitions of the three types of wound closure (primary, secondary and delayed primary) and when they are appropriate, 5) understand the basics of local anesthetic including which anesthetic to use and the maximum dose for each, 6) understand when sutures should be removed, 7) list various suturing techniques and their indications, and 8) improve comfort levels in performing various suturing techniques including: simple interrupted, horizontal mattress, vertical mattress, and corner repair. If desired, instructors can individually assess the learner sutures using the attached complete validated suture checklist to show proficiency in these techniques.
