Tuesday, 16 May 2023

 
There are many skills required of EM clerkship directors (CDs), such as developing a curriculum that covers learning objectives, training residents and faculty to reliably assess students, and providing sound career advice. CDs are also beholden to many stakeholders, including the medical school, the department, and students as learners and advisees. Additionally, as part of their role, CDs are responsible for maintaining and documenting compliance with accreditation standards, especially during Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) visits. This workshop will address vital skills for running a successful clerkship and how to navigate common pitfalls.

Emergency Department Operations On-Ramp: A Crash Course (ED Administration and Clinical Operations Committee and Operations Interest Group Sponsored)

Clinical operations is a rapidly developing field that impacts every facet of care within the emergency department. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the unique challenges faced by academic emergency departments. They will analyze recent developments in operations research and apply them to physician staffing, review and practice designing a quality assurance process, and chart the career trajectories available in operations. This workshop will be of primary interest to new medical directors, residents and fellows interested in leadership, and educators.

Bringing the Outside In: Incorporating Wilderness Medicine Into Your Curriculum (Wilderness Medicine Interest Group Sponsored)

This workshop teaches the fundamentals of resource-limited medicine and practical ways to implement a wilderness medicine (WM) curriculum. Sharpen your decision-making skills based on history and physical exam using intuition (as opposed to technology), improvised medical care, and incorporating environmental factors on topics less commonly seen in the emergency department (e.g., lightning, toxic plants, and altitude illness). Rotating small groups will teach hands-on skills and instructional techniques. Participants will then design activities to take back to their institutions.

Education scholarship is essential for promotion of faculty and for investigating and disseminating new educational practices. With very little faculty development devoted to medical education research, educators often fall behind on scholarship. The ability to identify well-designed study questions, situated within appropriate conceptual frameworks, is key. Outcomes should strike a balance between feasibility, meaning, and importance. This workshop will engage participants in all aspects of medical education research, from concept to publication.

Simulation Hacks: Building and Validating Do-it-yourself Models (Simulation Academy Sponsored)

Virtually no department/residency has an unlimited simulation budget. Due to the high costs of commercial simulations, replacement tissue and supplies, simulators must improvise and develop DIY models for various clinical procedures. This is especially true for high-acuity low-occurrence procedures. This workshop specifically teaches how to build models and where to look for specific replacement hacks. It also discusses strategies for converting innovations into scholarship and research.

Ultrasound-guided Nerve Block (AEUS Sponsored)

Pain is one of the most common issues causing patients to present to the ED. In light of the opioid epidemic, a multi-modal approach to controlling pain is ideal with the use of non-opioid medications and ultrasound guided nerve blocks. In addition to controlling pain, these blocks can also help with a wide range of procedures, ranging from laceration repairs, abscess drainage to chest tube placement. Taught by a group of ultrasound leaders from across the country with specialized expertise in nerve blocks, this workshop will further advance emergency care through procedural education allowing providers to feel more confident performing ultrasound guided nerve blocks when treating acute and chronic pain or when performing procedures. Hands-on practice will be emphasized during this workshop.

Beyond Microaggressions: Upstander Training for Allyship

ER physicians see large patient volumes with variable acuity and interact with assorted personalities. We encounter macro and microaggressions at work, though there is little formal training at many institutions on bystander response and creating a culture that encourages source control. In this workshop, attendees will learn foundational knowledge on microaggressions, identify their own implicit biases and practice strategies for response. Attendees will be better equipped to serve as allies, to provide effective source control and to train residents on these concepts.

Excellence in clinical and didactic teaching is critical, yet many faculty have not had formal teaching training. This short, intensive, easily accessible course covering fundamental topics in EM clinical and didactic teaching may provide a solution to this dilemma. During this newly designed medical education boot camp, expert educators will utilize interactive and experiential educational techniques to work with faculty on the fundamentals of teaching through facilitated discussions, application and practice.

Become an Excellent Peer Reviewer (Research Committee and Evidence-Based Healthcare & Implementation Interest Group Sponsored)

In addition to providing an overview of peer review, this workshop teaches how to perform excellent peer reviews through an exercise to enhance basic critical appraisal skills. Participants will divide into small groups to review three medical research studies (one publishable, one that can be improved and one that is clearly not publishable). Each small group will select specific items that can be modified to improve each study and make them acceptable for publication. Following successful completion, participants will be paired with faculty mentors to improve their individual performance of peer reviews.

Developing Effective Education for the Next Generation (RAMS and Simulation Academy Sponsored)

Next generation is coming -- are educators ready? Each generation is shaped by its cultural experiences, leading to characteristic preferences for learning. This four-hour workshop will equip educators with teaching methods to engage the Gen Z learners who will increasingly comprise emergency medicine trainees. In small groups, educators will discover, discuss and apply strategies to manage common instructional challenges arising from Gen Z learning expectations, with an emphasis on simulation’s unique pedagogical strengths for this learner group.

Virtual Reality Training in Mass Casualty Response (Disaster Medicine Interest Group and Emergency Medical Services Interest Group Sponsored)

Recent mass casualty events demonstrate that targeted hemorrhage control, swift extrication with minimal interventions, and immediate transport are priorities for care. During this workshop, participants will navigate a scene and triage patients within an interactive, immersive VR simulation designed with the Unity virtual reality software. Patients are modeled after a universal avatar and have a variety of life-threatening injuries (e.g. acute arterial bleed, penetrating injury, pneumothorax, amputations). Learners will be provided with a guided summary of their performance.

Accelerating Principles of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Ageism at the Interface of Geriatrics and Emergency Medicine
(Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine (AGEM), Academy for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Emergency Medicine (ADIEM), and Geriatric Emergency Department Collaborative (GEDC) Sponsored)

The National Institute of Aging (NIA) Health Disparities Research Framework published in 2015 catalyzed hundreds of research awards to explore the environmental, sociocultural, and biological determinants of health disparities at the interface of aging.  This session will highlight a 5-year review of the quality of diversity, equity, and inclusion geriatric emergency medicine research reporting focusing on falls, medication safety, elder abuse, and altered mental status. The findings will include a synopsis of the status quo as well as tangible approaches to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion research reporting in the years ahead.
