CSIM Annual Meeting 2019
CSIM Cardiac Ultrasound Simulation Pre-Course
Wednesday, October 2, 2019 – 7:30am–12pm
Dalhousie University, Collaborative Health Education Building (CHEB)
5793 University Avenue, Halifax, NS B3H 4R2
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn to acquire and interpret basic focused cardiac ultrasound views relevant to the care of the general medical patient. Common pitfalls and scope of focused cardiac ultrasound will also be discussed. A number of the instructors are internationally-known point-of-care ultrasound experts. Maximal time will be devoted to direct hands-on training on standardized patients. The learner to instructor ratio is capped at 3:1 to maximize learning. This ratio is one of the lowest in hands-on ultrasound training courses.
Hands-on stations will address the following objectives:
- List the common uses of focused cardiac ultrasound in the care of the general medical patient.
- Recognize the scope and limitations of focused cardiac ultrasound.
- Acquire and interpret basic findings in the four focused cardiac ultrasound views on a standardized patient.
Pre-requisite: participants MUST have basic relevant ultrasound physics knowledge prior to attending the workshop
Registration will be available in late spring. Extra fee applies; minimum registration required; seating limited, transportation not provided.
