Overview

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Don’t miss this opportunity to acquire and maintain bedside ultrasound skills using live human models and highly realistic simulation task trainers with the guidance of experienced faculty! The use of bedside ultrasound by clinicians to guide invasive emergency and critical care procedures has been proven to improve success and reduce complications, and is rapidly becoming established as the standard of care. UGEMP provides an opportunity to acquire and maintain the skills required to perform the following procedures using Ultrasound-guidance.

PRE-COURSE WORK:

Before the course, the students will have access to web-based learning modules. These online modules will demonstrate the cognitive aspects of performing the procedure. Learners will complete this self-directed learning at their convenience, before arriving for the one-day hands-on procedure lab and human patient simulator sessions. (Half the credits are for the online modules).

ONSITE @ CESEI:

Human models will allow for demonstration of human surface landmarks, real-time ultrasound image generation, and human ultrasound anatomy. Ultrasoundable task-trainers that simulate the tactile feel of human tissue will allow for the repeated practice of invasive procedures without harming the human models. The instructors will demonstrate the procedure and will supervise the learners’ performance of the procedures in small groups. Formative evaluation in the form of immediate feedback provided by the instructor will help the learners to monitor their progress and guide their learning.
