Course description & learning objectives
This course focuses on competence development through scenario-based training. The competences in focus are:
1-The initial management of critical patients in all age groups (Core Curriculum 2.1)
2-Differential diagnosis and decision-making (Core Curriculum 2.2 + 2.5)
3-Systematic EKG interpretation (Core Curriculum 2.4.4)
4-Systematic acid-base interpretation (Core Curriculum 2.2.6)
5-Interpretation of the neurological examination and initial management of selected neurological conditions
(Core Curriculum 2.2.5)
Participants receive a course manual prior to the course and a checklist compendium onsite that helps guide the initial management of critical syndromes (e.g. anaphylaxis, hemorrhagic shock, hyponatremic encephalopathy) and information-acquisition from patients with common symptoms (e.g. shortness of breath, vertigo).
The course includes a pretest with references to open-access educational
The course prioritizes scenario-based training and includes over 40 scenarios. Participants take turns managing the case and acquiring clinical information. The course also includes brief lectures, demonstrations and a group-discussion period.
Thanks to the scenario-based format, the course provides an opportunity to train for the EBEEM Part B.
Coffee breaks will be served from 10:30 to 11:00 and from 15:30 to 16:00.
