ECG-u Workshop

ECG-u Workshop

Friday, June 3, 2016                        08:00 – 17:00

After the success of the initial ECG-u workshop in 2014, the ECG-u course is now being deployed across Québec and offered as a pre-conference workshop at CAEP. This will be of particular interest to physicians, residents, nurses or any health professional wishing to improve their knowledge of interpreting emergency ECGs.

Presented as an interactive workshop, the ECG-u workshop covers all facets and intricacies of the ECG in the ED: wide and narrow tachy, bradys and blocks, PMP problems, metabolic disorders, coronary ischemia, STEMI, killers ECG, etc. It allows a systematic vision of all problems affecting the ECG commonly encountered in the emergency medicine and intensive care environment to develop.

This interactive workshop is developed from the best available data regarding the use of ECG in medical emergencies, organized in a systematic approach targeting the most significant clinical issues. The course is based on entirely original materials, from the extensive bank of ECGs housed in the ED of the Montréal Heart Institute. All the images are original and high quality in full colour.

The focus is on the use of ECG in the ED in most common situations to address key challenges faced by emergency physicians, hospitalists and intensivists. Participants first receive 50 ECGs to review a few days before training. It is IMPORTANT to proceed with the evaluation of these ECGs before class so that you can fully enjoy the workshop.

The day is divided into 11 interactive training blocks on specific topics, not known in advance by the participants (the first activity is precisely to guess the theme from the ECGs analyzed). Each progresses as follows:

  1. Small group analysis of some ECGs (previously distributed)
  2. Guessing block’s theme
  3. ECG review in plenary
  4. Interactive key point presentation
  5. Summary
  6. Transition to the next block

Education credits are available for 7:00 (Category I credits) continuous professional development via CPASS of the University of Montréal.

Developers and co-directors of the course, Drs. Alain VadeboncÅ“ur and Dominic Larose, have over 50 years’ experience in emergency medicine and almost 25 years at the Montréal Heart Institute emergency department. They have reviewed and continue to incorporate the most recent data from emergency medicine and cardiology literature dealing with the ECG.

Maximum number of registrants: 40

Registration fee: $475.00 for physicians; $325.00 for residents and other health professionals

Academic Symposium 2016: Emergency Physician Educators & Scholars…the Path to Success!

Saturday, June 4, 2016                   12:00 – 16:00

The vision of the Academic Section is to promote high-quality emergency patient care by conducting world-leading education and research in emergency medicine. Through its three working groups focused on leadership/administration, education, and research, the Academic Section delivers the annual Academic Symposium.

This year, the Academic Symposium will be geared to those looking to take their education careers to the next level.

  • Are you a new or budding medical educator in emergency medicine?
  • Are you an experienced emergency medicine educator or scholar ready to mentor the next generation?

The Education Working Group has gathered experts from across Canada to present everything that you need to know to kick-start your career in medical education. Rob Woods, Jason Frank, and Teresa Chan are leading three panels, with topics including the training recommended for different careers paths in medical education, how to make a real impact on medical education, and the essentials to have scholarly work published in education.

The full symposium is included with the Resident Program. Residents will have the opportunity to be seated with education leaders during the pre-symposium lunch and mingle at the reception.

Pre-registration is recommended for everyone else and includes a lunch and reception.

Registration Fee:

  • $35.00 in advance
  • $50.00 at the door

Simulation Olympiad

Simulation Olympiad

Join us for another exciting simulation-based resuscitation competition at this year’s CAEP conference.

Better yet, enter your own inter-professional team to participate at this year’s competition.

Day 1 – Preliminary Competition – Saturday, June 4, 2016  09:00 – 12:00

All teams compete in a single 10-minute resuscitation scenario and are debriefed by a panel of EM experts. Multiple scenarios will be used for audience entertainment. Audience voting will determine which teams advance to the semi-finals.

Day 2 – Semi-finals and Finals – Sunday, June 5, 2016  13:00 – 16:30

The top four teams will compete in two semi-final scenarios. The top teams will then compete in the final scenario. Audience voting will be the deciding factor.

Registration Details
