Multidisciplinary Emergency Critical Care Program
We provide an evidence based and practical critical care education to emergency medicine trainees and nurses. We use innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to maximize the quality of teaching and to continue to improve the curriculum by incorporating the voices of the trainees.
Our educational collaboration is not only with other passionate educators among EM physicians, intensivists, and subspecialists, but also with other healthcare professionals, such as palliative care providers, FLEX nurses, advanced practice providers, respiratory therapists, and pharmacists. As a team, we will push the boundaries of knowledge in the field of emergency critical care in order to provide the best care for our critically ill patients in our emergency department.

The theme of the day is a promotion and celebration of multidisciplinary critical care education for our EM residents. It is truly "multidisciplinary" in that we will have EM attending, EMCCM attending, EMIMCCM attending, PedsEM attending, Neurocritical care attending, Anesthesia/CCM attending, Anesthesia/IM/CCM attending, Cardiac anesthesia/CCM attending, Pulm/CCM attending from Stanford, Kaiser Santa Clara, and Palo Alto VA. We will also collaborate with Stanford Simulation team, pharmacy, and respiratory therapy team to maximize the quality of education for our residents.
EMCCM MD/RN Collaborative Education Session
EMCCM fellows/Mitarai to discuss the challenging ICU cases seen in ED with FLEX RNs. The cases are chosen by FLEX RN with sets of questions, and MDs go over rationale/evidence/pearls. It is held during FLEX RN meeting on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
Critical Care for Emergency Medicine Conference Content Library Development
Development of open-source critical care library of content specifically targeted for presentation at emergency medicine resident conference. We hope that this project will ultimately serve as a template for the development of a broader, open source critical care lecture content library for emergency medicine residency programs.

Stress Inoculation Educational Program for Multidisciplinary Team Training in the Acute Resuscitation of Critically Ill Patients
The goal of this project is to develop a set of comprehensive multidisciplinary team training modules with the goal of optimizing team performance in high stress resuscitation scenarios.
