Description

Medical simulation has been a transformative force in medical education. Through the use of increasingly sophisticated technology, we are now able to simulate everything from yearly family doctor visits and simple procedures to complex operations such as heart surgery. Now more than ever, simulation is an essential tool for delivering the highest quality training, and it can be particularly valuable to physicians who teach in the acute care setting, where it is not always possible or practical to allow students to learn by working directly with patients.

This book is written and designed specifically to guide medical educators in emergency medicine on how to integrate medical simulation into their teaching and achieve optimal results. Inside you’ll find:

• Clinical cases drawn from faculty at major teaching centers, formatted and annotated so that they can be tailored to novice or advanced learners and easily deployed in a diverse range of settings.

• Cases that cover the full spectrum of EM pathology.

• Valuable ‘tips or tricks’ accompanying images and patient data.

• A Companion Website including imaging and laboratory results pertinent to each case study – presented in Powerpoint format for easy download; video clips to simulate sonogram results.

An invaluable new resource for training emergency physicians, nurses, and EMTs/paramedics, Emergency Medicine Simulation Workbook: A Tool for Bringing the Curriculum to Life provides a roadmap to the unique educational benefits of medical simulation along with a wealth of material educators can adapt for use in their own teaching and assessment portfolios.
