Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine
CDEM and EMRA released a training video for medical students that demonstrates how to tell a compelling story when presenting a patient’s case. This brief video offers handy do’s and don'ts that will help medical students understand how best to efficiently and effectively communicate in the ED.
Presenting a patient can be like telling a story. Much of this is dependent on starting with a good differential diagnosis. As Dr. Gordon says in the video above, there are three parts to this story.
The video was designed to illustrate the principles outlined in "The 3-minute emergency medicine medical student presentation: a variation on a theme" by Davenport, Honigman, and Druck (Acad Emerg Med, 2008).
