What attendees are saying about EMR:

“Group interaction, Q&A very valuable.  Having people share their practice changing points has strong impact.”

“Overall very helpful.  I liked the format of the videos to review on own & the case based learning.  Thanks for making it applicable to all ED practices (rural to academic).”

“Met 100% of my educational/professional goals.  I would definitely encourage promoting this program to other allied health.”

“The amount of information was large but presentation and having videos with knowledgeable, engaged teachers made it easy to follow and learn.  Real time research to get answers was very impressive. Never have seen that before.”

“Liked the evidence presented for practices established or progressive.  Really liked articles presented in presentations or by themselves.”

“I loved how different educational methods were utilized to complement each other.  Pre-course videos + brief on-site lectures + amazing discussions!”

“Knowledgeable speakers, great clinical pearls.”

“Very good course to keep up to date with a ton of topics.”

“Remarkable course for GPs working in acute care in remote areas.  It has an essential retinue of evidence based facts augmented with practice pearls from seasoned, humorous emerg docs.”
