ID: Infectious Disease Management in Emergency Medicine Roadshow
Much of what we do as physicians in Canadian emergency departments pertains to the prevention and treatment of infections in addition to managing their complications. Infections cross all demographics and geographic areas and are common in both remote and urban environments. This case-based, engaging day will keep you on the edge of your seat while providing up-to-date information to support and direct your practice. From immuno-supression through sepsis/SIRS to post-exposure prophylaxis, the answers you have sought time and time again will be found here.
At the end of this program, the learner can expect to:
• Use an organized approach to diagnose common infections in the ED including but not limited to cellulitis, pneumonia, urinary and gastrointestinal tract infections in addition to ENT infections.
• Develop an organized approach to major and less common infections including, but not limited to sepsis, endocarditis and meningitis.
• Use recent evidence to treat and manage infections in special populations including but not limited to indigent patient, immuno-compromised patients, intravenous drug users, the elderly and those with chronic illnesses.
• Choose an appropriate management strategy in infectious disease management in the ED including antimicrobials, resuscitation and other therapies.
• Have an organized approach to prophylaxis for bites, stings and wounds.
