Course description & learning objectives

This pre-course focuses on competence development through simulation-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).

Course format

The course prioritizes simulation-based training and includes over 40 scenarios that course participants take turns in managing.  Structured feedback is provided after each scenario using checklists.  The course includes also brief lectures, demonstrations and a group-discussion period.
