Objectives

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Following this course, the participant should be able to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis of the various presenting disorders; apply proper life-stabilizing measures as well as identify the life-threatening emergencies as requiring urgent treatment and/or hospital admission; organize an approach to diagnosis and test ordering and develop a treatment plan based on current evidence as well as providing cost-effective outcomes.  This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making an appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives, with a focus on diagnosis, treatment and when to refer.  There is a need to improve the competence and practice strategies in the field of Pediatric Emergency Medicine since it affects not only those in EM but even those practicing in clinical settings such as FP, GP and Pediatricians; therefore, this course was designed as an update for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician.
