AEM Consensus Conference: Aligning the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research Agenda to Reduce Health Outcome Gaps
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

There is substantial variability in the emergency care provided to acutely ill and injured children in both the pre-hospital and hospital settings. In addition, there are, substantial differences in available pediatric resources in different settings and sites. The overarching goal of this Consensus Conference is to develop the pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) research agenda for the next decade in order to reduce health outcome gaps in the treatment of acutely ill and injured children. Expected outcomes of the Consensus Conference fall into three overarching categories: 1) To align PEM leaders across organizations and foster new leadership, 2) To set a research agenda for PEM across all access points of the emergency care system, and help develop PEM expertise across all providers who care for acutely ill and injured children, and 3) To integrate PEM research networks goals and objectives.

 

Wilderness Medicine: Learning the Fundamentals and Implementing Innovative and Practical Educational Curriculums Into Residency and Medical School
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Emergency care can occur both within and outside the walls of an emergency department; therefore, the advancement of educational initiatives should include wilderness medicine and improvised medical care. This workshop teaches the fundamentals of wilderness medicine and practical ways to implement wilderness medicine curriculum.

Grant Writing Workshop
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This session will build upon prior years' Grant Writing Workshops by training the next generation of emergency medicine researchers to submit successful grants.

Educator's Boot Camp
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
This workshop supports the mission of SAEM's focus on education by focusing on improving teaching skills and helping educators incorporate evidence-based teaching practices.
EM Talk: Goals of Care and a Roadmap to Master Difficult Conversations
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Emergency physicians (EMs) care for critically ill patients with both acute and chronic disease, yet many EM physicians are reluctant to discuss treatment options with patients and their families because they perceive they lack the training, skills, information, and time to engage in these difficult “goals of care” conversations. This workshop offers an opportunity for providers to embrace new skills, and for educators to experience a novel model to facilitate learners in the mastery of new skills. 

Technology in Medical Education: Educating the Next Generation
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees how to leverage technology to engage Millennials and learners of future generations, thus ensuring SAEM's role as a leader in education innovation. We will discuss effective adult learning methods and provide hands-on training to utilize podcasting, audience response systems, learning management systems, and simulation. We will also discuss team-based learning, its use in medical education, and how to integrate these concepts into overall curriculum design. 

Trash Into Treasure: Low-cost Simulation Strategies and Models
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

By discovering lower-cost approaches to simulation training, learners will be able to expand simulation-based education into areas that have previously been cost prohibitive. The knowledge, techniques, and networking opportunities developed during this workshop will teach participants several cost-saving techniques, as well as the skills necessary to create low-cost, high-fidelity simulation models for use at their own institutions.

Female Leaders in Emergency Medicine: Helping You With Your Next Career Move
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This workshop supports SAEM's strategic plan and core organizational values of collaboration and diversity by enhancing the career success of female academic emergency medicine physicians. 

Bridging the Gap and Strengthening Our Community: Building Our Understanding of Microaggressions, Implicit Bias, and Cultural Humility
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The goal of this session is to educate providers on this important topic; help them become more culturally competent; and increase their understanding of how to communicate with colleagues and patients at the  complex intersections of their identities.
Resuscitative Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) in the Emergency Department
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

 

This half-day workshop is aimed at teaching focused transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and advanced transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) to emergency physicians. 

Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity in Emergency Medicine Research, Education, and Clinical Practice
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This session will outline best practices to guide the advancement of diversity and inclusion in emergency medicine in the delivery of patient care, provision of medical training, and within healthcare systems. 

Climate Change and Health: Implications for Practice, Teaching, Research, and Advocacy in Emergency Medicine
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

As the health consequences of climate change become increasingly apparent, the specialty of emergency medicine is arguably becoming one of the most impacted specialties within the house of medicine. Through professional development activities that will develop relevant competencies, this workshop will arm academic emergency physicians with the knowledge they need to become climate change and health champions within the realms of education, research, and advocacy. 

Clerkship Director Boot Camp
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
There are many aspects to running an emergency medicine clerkship, yet many clerkship directors have not received formal training, and must often learn on the job or from directors of other medical school rotations. This workshop will provide foundational skills to help clerkship directors effectively run an emergency medicine clerkship. Particular emphasis will be given to fourth-year rotations, including the advising of students pursuing careers in emergency medicine. 
Effective Debriefing With Challenging Learners
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The goal of this SAEM Simulation Academy and CORD co-led workshop is to enhance the knowledge and improve the skills of emergency medicine (EM) educators in simulation debriefing in order to help them become more comfortable doing simulation and to improve their ability to execute better simulation debriefings for their learners, thus improving the education of emergency medicine students and residents through expert use of the important teaching tools of simulation and debriefing.
