Advanced Emergency Department Course
This training course assists junior doctors to develop practical surgical and medical skills as they have had limited opportunities to be exposed to certain surgical procedures and techniques upon graduation, and even less opportunity to repeatedly practise and consolidate medical technical skills. Developing these qualities and skills required for professional advancement is essential for Junior Doctors.
This course aims to:
- Cover practical skills to treat respiratory illnesses, cardiac arrest, critical and special wounds, traumas and other emergencies to improve the knowledge and experience of students when they deal with critical patients.
At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate the concepts, principles and skills related to initial and secondary patient assessment and treatment of patients with multiple injuries.
- Understand and manage common emergency cases, such as cardiac arrest, stroke, shock, toxicological emergencies, gynecological emergencies, and asthma attacks.
- Confidently and securely deal with pains and critical wounds, such as head, chest, abdominal and pelvic injuries.
- Be up-to-date with the latest changes and advances in patient care.
