Emergency Care: What Every Provider Should Know
This online course covers the key concepts that define the field of emergency medicine, with the goal of teaching life-saving treatments for patients presenting with life-threatening emergencies.
The course is open to all healthcare providers, as well as hospital or school administrators interested in training providers.
Designed to bolster and supplement training in parts of the world where emergency medicine is still evolving, this course enables healthcare providers to learn critical skills from faculty or senior providers. Our goal is to increase the capacity of current emergency providers to deliver quick effective care and improve outcomes from serious conditions such as:
- heart attacks
- car accidents
- severe infections
Content is presented in the form of concise didactic lectures, with graphics, photos and video clips used to highlight key points.
Clips from the television show “ER” highlight critical management decisions and quick actions that can mean the difference between life and death.
Our problem-based approach to learning can easily supplement emergency medicine residency programs.
If resources and faculty are available locally, a procedure/skills lab can complement this online course .
Please note: this online course requires Internet access.
