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
2-Differential diagnosis and decision-making
3-Systematic EKG interpretation
4-Systematic acid-base interpretation
5-Interpretation of the neurological examination and initial management of selected neurological conditions
Participants receive a checklist compendium 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 prioritizes scenario-based training and includes over 40 scenarios that course participants take turns managing. Structured feedback is provided after demonstrations and a group-discussion period.
Coffee breaks will be served from 10:30 to 11:00 and from 15:30 to 16:00.
