|Title||Development of a series of "5-minute Bedside Teaching Modules" in Emergency Medicine|
Clinical Emergency Medicine (EM) teaching is driven by the bedside patient encounter. Currently clinical teaching occurs in an ad hoc fashion with individual staff physicians delivering short didactic sessions as they are able. These brief ‘lectures’ are delivered during the course of a clinical shift but are heterogeneous, varying in length and content. Bedside teaching is influenced by the case mix of the various department, physician experience and background, and time constraints. Trainees may therefore have vastly different experiences in EM rotations, with the possibily for significant gaps in education.
To support clinical teaching in EM, we will develop a series of modules that explore common patient complaints, and areas of critical importance. Each will have a set of learning points and objectives along with a list and description of relevant resources/evidence [images, figures, videos, bibliography etc]. There will also be links to landmark papers, textbooks, and discussions about area of controversy - the modules will be both teaching aid, and a ‘gateway to deeper learning.’ Modules will be graded by complexity, allowing teaching specific to trainee level.
The goal of this project is to begin to integrate and provide structure for clinical EM teaching across British Columbia.
