Track 3 – TRAUMA AND INJURY IN THE ED
Track Chair: Dr. Raoul Daoust
Dr. Malo will discuss the challenges of treating a severely injured patient in the latter stages of pregnancy. He will address common questions such as:
as well as how to respond to a cardiac arrest. He will discuss the indication and techniques of performing a perimortem cesarean section.
|* Resident Abstract Award Winner|
|LO034||Does head injury matter? Comparison of functional outcomes in elderly who have sustained a minor trauma with or without head injury: a prospective multicenter cohort study||Audrey-Anne Brousseau*|
|LO035||The prevalence of alcohol-related trauma recidivism: a systematic review||James Nunn|
|LO036||The influence of cognitive rest and graduated return to usual activities emergency department discharge instructions on symptoms of minor traumatic brain injury||Catherine Varner|
Transfusion medicine in trauma is a rapidly evolving topic. Good studies have been completed in the past years and we can now integrate their results in our daily practice. However, there are still many controversies that Dr. Notebaert will discuss in this session. A few examples: When should we transfuse Tranexamic Acid? Should Prothrombin Complex Concentrates or other products be considered? What is the role of Viscoelastic Tests (ROTEM and TEG) in trauma?
Using clinical cases, Dr. Daoust will review the advantages and risks of hypotensive resuscitation in trauma.
Track 4 – PEDIATRIC I – PEDIATRIC PEARLS AND HOT STUFF
Track Chair: Dr. Chantal Guimont
In this presentation, Dr. Crocco will review the evidence for anti-emetics in children, including ondansetron. He will discuss recent evidence suggesting that doctors are not using these medications correctly, as well as the importance of understanding research methodology and applying it clinically.

In this session, Dr. Raymond-Dufresne will review evidence related to the use of in situ simulation in pediatric emergency medicine. She will also share her personal experience using in situ simulation and will provide the audience with tips for the successful implementation of such a programme in their own clinical environment.
Pediatric emergency medicine literature is abundant. In this session, Dr. Blanchet will present five recent articles that influenced his practice.
The removal of codeine from many hospital formularies has left a void in analgesic options for children. Dr. Poonai’s evidence-based synopsis of opioids, non-opioids and non-pharmacologic therapies for fractures, otitis media, and abdominal pain will inform a rational approach to management of children’s pain in the ED.
Track 5 – LEADERSHIP IN EM
Track Chair: Dr. Jim Christenson
The CanMEDS 2015 framework launched in October 2015, introduced a major change to the manager role and renamed it the leader role. Emergency physicians will have to teach the CanMEDS roles in the clinical setting to help learners to become competent leaders. Likewise, emergency physicians might wish to increase their leadership competencies to become better leaders and in doing so, better role models for learners. But what elements of leadership can be taught and how can we teach them? Dr. Poitras’ presentation will review the competencies and milestones that are defined in the leadership role of the CanMEDS 2015 framework. He will also discuss which ones are the most teachable/learnable in our clinical context and how emergency physicians can increase their leadership competencies to become better leaders and role models.
Leadership roles in medicine and academia attract some and repel others, while many others look on in puzzlement from the sidelines. Dr. Schull does not claim to have all of the answers, but promises an entertaining exploration of the following questions: What makes for effective leadership? Why does it matter? Are leaders born or can they learn the needed skills? Why do leaders sometimes fail?
This session will provide an exercise to work with audience participants and explore a personal component of leadership.
Track 6 – SIMULATION OLYMPIAD – FINALS
