End of day

Workshops rotation

  • Basic A-E / Triage & Scene Management + Advanced A-E
    Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Exposure...
    An A-E assessment tells you most of what you need to know about an acutely-unwell patient, and doing it quickly & effectively can make a huge difference to their treatment and outcome. If you need an introduction or refresher to this critical skill, the basic A-E workshop is for you.
    For those comfortable with A-Es, join our advanced workshop to expand what you know and learn how to triage and manage a scene. This will be particularly useful for those looking to lead the response to our mass casualty simulation.
    Hosted by Dr Jess Beech, Dr Alex Finn, and TBC.
  • Difficult access
    Using ultrasound guided cannulation and EZ-IO, learn how to gain access to even the most difficult and shut-down patients.
    Hosted by Dr Jake Turner, Dr Tom Doel, & Dr Will Loveday.
  • Airway Management
    Airway compromise will quickly lead to death and disability in patients if not recognised and treated promptly. Hence, airway management is a key skill for emergency practitioners, who can employ a range of techniques including basic manoeuvres, supraglottic airways, intubation, and advanced video laryngoscopy.
    A team from UHCW anaesthetics will be running a hands-on station to teach these vital skills and will also introduce some important considerations in the treatment of trauma-specific patients.
    Hosted by Dr Cyprian Mendonca, Dr Ansari Umair, Dr Ambreen Yasin, & Dr Kumar Peeyush.
  • Human Factors & Communication
    These 'soft skills' are often under-appreciated and can greatly improve the quality of your patient's care and outcome. Have your eyes opened to how we can better support ourselves and each other.
    Hosted by TBC.
