Statement of Need

CME is integrated into the process for improving professional practice with educational strategies implemented to remove, overcome or address barriers to physician change. Physicians are unable to consistently integrate new information into their practices because of the ways new medical knowledge is structured and disseminated, and the time it takes to completely scan for new information. Practical Reviews publications select and translate peer-reviewed literature for practical use, therefore diminishing the barrier of time.

Intended Audience

Emergency physicians and others interested in emergency medicine and related problems.

Special Prerequisites for Participants

There are no prerequisites for participants.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Explain evidence of the safety and efficacy of certain procedures
  • Evaluate where controversy exists and, with our distinguished editorial board of physicians, appraise the evidence and assess advantages and disadvantages of the methods in question
  • Discuss controversies, advantages, and disadvantages of diagnostic and treatment plans
  • Integrate non-conventional principles and practices with conventional ones, while select­ing and using the best of all available courses of treatment
  • Discuss the latest basic science findings and their impact on clinical problems
