Description

CJEM is the voice of Canadian Emergency Medicine with an expanded mandate to serve all providers regardless of practice locations.  The journal offers multiple opportunities for physicians to contribute to the journal’s mission and vision.  While these approaches are generally well-known among researchers the need for submissions from the entire spectrum of ED MDs has never been more important.  This workshop which will be led by the CJEM EIC, Deputy Editors and Decision Editors will highlight the myriad of sections that are accepting submissions that would not be considered research.  Please join us in small group facilitated discussions as each opportunity and section is reviewed and the contribution opportunities are highlighted.

Audience

  • All CAEP members including students and residents

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will gain increased knowledge of the various sections of CJEM including commentaries, humanities, CJEM Debate, Just the Facts, Journal Club, editorials.
  • Participants will gain a detailed understanding of the requirements and author instructions for each section including social media engagement considerations.
  • Participants will engage in active discussion with members of the CJEM editorial board with an eye to pitching potential ideas for manuscript submissions.

Description

Quality Improvement (QI) is rapidly becoming the preferred method to advance patient care. Whether you are interested in learning more about the science of QI or you are looking for an effective approach to tackle local quality issues, this practical workshop will provide you with the foundation and tools to successfully complete meaningful QI projects. We will go through the steps of a QI project, including how to select appropriate quality issues to tackle, how to apply process improvement tools, and how to carry out a project using rapid cycle change methodology.

Audience

  • Any emergency department (ED) staff (e.g., physicians, nurses, or allied health care professionals) or trainees interested in improving patient care. No previous QI training or experience is required, and knowledgeable attendees are likely to still learn a lot! Participants are encouraged to come to the course with local quality issues in mind for discussion.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply QI theory and methodology to examples
  • Review the importance of adequately diagnosing and understanding quality gaps

Description

Gender identity and sexual orientation are key determinants of health. Education in emergency medicine around caring for patients who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming has traditionally been minimal. This workshop aims to be an open, safer, all-inclusive learning space, focused on building an understanding of trans issues and providing strategies to provide meaningful care to trans, genderqueer and gender fluid communities. This session will include an explanation of the language we use to differentiate between sex, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation. It will also have small group and case-based learning.

Description

The key procedural components of airway management are laryngoscopy and intubation, facemask ventilation, supraglottic airway ventilation and neck rescue aka cric. As emergency physicians we need to be experts in performing these procedures. While we say we do this all the time, we actually don’t. Manikins are not ideal for reinforcing the subtleties of optimal airway management. In the workshop I will share pearls on optimizing these

Description

Venkatesh Thiruganasambandamoorthy and Jean Chen will argue the benefits of Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) as a means of preventing the use of unnecessary medical intervention to our patients and system, while Suneel Upadhye and Sam Campbell will contend that the idea is an unrealistic fad that exposes patients to misdiagnosis and physicians to medical legal risks. The MC will moderate the discussion and take questions from participants after the initial arguments.

This format aims to discuss the challenges associated with applying appropriateness of care principles in a realistic and practical way. Presenters and participants are encouraged to voice strong opinions with open minds and tongues in their cheeks!

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the extreme perspectives of choosing wisely
  • Develop strategies to explain CWC concepts to patients
  • Learn good medical-legal practices to support CWC principles

Audience

Description

As emergency departments rise to the challenges of the pandemic, and its impact on patients and healthcare systems, one of the disruptive technologies that has emerged is the development of ED virtual care delivery models in Canada. Virtual care has evolved as an important modality for providing patients with timely access to care, while maintaining the need for social distancing to decrease spread of Covid-19. In addition, virtual care may potentially help to mitigate issues related to ongoing ED overcrowding and lack of resources. As a the number of ED virtual care sites evolve in Canada, practical guidance and evolving principles for emergency physicians to deliver virtual care safely in this setting are important. This session will review important principles for emergency physicians to be aware of, in ensuring safe practices to mitigate medico-legal issues that can occur in the ED patient setting.

Audience

  • emergency physicians considering virtual care as a means of providing patient care

Learning Objectives

  • Identify key medico-legal considerations when providing ED virtual care.
  • Using case vignettes, identify specific issues to consider in ED patient populations and the provision of virtual care.
  • Appreciate the importance of ensuring appropriate expectations from both physicians and patients regarding the limits of virtual care.

Description

Preamble: CAEP’s Future of Emergency Medicine in Canada (FEMC) Committee has focused on the training and workforce issues identified in the 2016 CWG Report. While the Committee will be sunsetted in 2021, its key initiatives will be folded into a new Future of Emergency Medicine in Canada Task Force (the Task Force), which has been given a mandate by CAEP’s Board to look broadly and boldly into the future.

The Task Force will be identifying emerging changes and potential future priorities in the EM firmament, especially those catalyzed by our experience with COVID-19. It will consult widely and review available evidence, but not hesitate to challenge historical positions and question the status quo. The focus will be getting ahead of, rather than reacting to, a changing environment.

Major areas of inquiry will likely include:

-Models to predict the future EM workforce requirements in a country that lacks systematic HHR planning and has lurched from under to over-supply. To do so, we may re-visit the definitions of an ED and emergency physician, as well as potential consolidation or transformation of EDs? Are alternate care providers (ACPs, such as NPs or PAs) a help and a threat simultaneously? How can we span the continuum between rural and tertiary practitioners, while advancing our specialty?

-Disaster and Pandemic planning: how can we contribute more meaningfully to disaster education, advocate for drug/PPE supply and distribution, and partner with government on a coordinated national command and control system?

-What will quality EM care look like in 10 years and why is our system’s preoccupation so focused on waiting times?

-The world of medical education is fundamentally changing. Can and should  CAEP adapt and deliver ‘full service’ CPD, just fill the gaps, partner with others or get out of the business altogether?

-Is it possible to make real progress on ED outflow in a post-pandemic world, where risk is higher but resources are shrinking? How can Choosing Wisely contribute to more efficient throughput? Or is the more effective and ethical approach to reduce upstream input issues by focusing on SDoH?

-EM Leadership in a changing world, in which wellness & burnout, succession planning & EDI, and the environment are new or escalating priorities.

Broad consultation within and beyond CAEP’s membership is planned and a preliminary report is expected within 12-18 months.

This event is designed to kick off the FEMC Task Force. An overview will be presented by Dr Alecs Chochinov and then input from all interested parties will be actively solicited. If you would like to help shape the future of EM in Canada, then you need to come to this inaugural workshop.

Audience

  • diverse

Learning Objectives

  • to help shape the future of EM in Canada
  • those with interest in disaster and pandemic planning
  • those with interest in future workforce planning and link to EM education
