Acute & General Medicine Conference and Advanced Life Support Group have teamed up to offer a leading simulation-based course on the management of common acute medical emergencies.
The courses, which are being run on both days of the AGM Conference (21 and 22 November), aim to teach attendees how to deliver prompt, accurate assessment of patients with medical emergencies and offer insight into the practical procedures necessary for their effective management.
Run by expert acute medicine trainers, the 'hands on' courses will take under an hour to complete. This skills training provides a perfect complement to the lecture-based speaker programme. They will cover different emergency scenarios such as the breathless patient; the shocked patient; the unconscious patient; the patient with chest pain; the confused patient and the collapsed patient.
The sessions will involved both simulation and demonstration and involve the assessment of the patient, identification of the problem(s) and how to manage appropriately. The trainers will provide feedback as the case unfolds in 'real-time'.
Delegates will also be able to polish their skills on central venous access and applying chest drains under ultrasound guidance - alongside a qualified trainer at the Sim Lab. And doctors will also be able to test their acute medicine knowledge online by accessing our Virtual Learning Environment. All this comes as part of the AGM Conference package, with no additional charges.
The courses will be overseen by Prof Terence Wardle, honorary professor and clinical sub dean at the Universities of Chester and Liverpool and a team of trained instructors from the ALSG MedicALS: Acute medical emergencies course. ALSG is a charity dedicated to saving life by providing training.
