Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has become an integral part of paediatric emergency medicine practice. Research on evaluating POCUS in the care of paediatric patients has improved the understanding of its potential role in clinical care. This course is directed at all Clinicians and allied health professionals aiming to develop fundamental knowledge in bedside paediatric emergency medicine ultrasound. The experienced faculty will conduct didactic lectures and focused hands on training sessions to make the participants aware of novice and intermediate techniques in bedside emergency ultrasound.  The course teaches basic ultrasound physics and knobology; the standard paediatric applications of lung, heart, and FAST views followed by more advanced applications including ocular scans, airway confirmation, regional anaesthesia, intussusception, appendicitis, pyloric stenosis and scrotal ultrasound. In addition, there will be multiple sessions to provide up to date knowledge on the literature and controversies in paediatric point-of-care-ultrasound. 

This workshop has 2 sessions. Participants can sign up for either session or both session; Session A for basic POCUS and Session B for procedural skills.

Crisis Resource Management Workshop
Date: 26 January 2018
Time: 8.30am – 4.15pm
Venue: Ng Teng Fong General Hospital
Class size: 16 - 20
Course Fee: $400 per pax

Effective teamwork and communication in clinical emergencies is fraught with difficulties and potential pitfalls, many of which can have serious consequences on patient safety. Effective communication in onerous situations is a component that is not formally taught in tertiary institutions nor is inducted in the workplace. In order to assure higher quality and safer patient care, a teamwork based system has been developed and is termed Crisis Resource Management (CRM).

CRM is an evidence-based teamwork system developed to improve communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals especially in the management of a critically ill patient. Communication tools featured in CRM advocate the use of information, people, and resources to achieve the best clinical outcomes for patients. The aim is to produce highly effective medical teams through

  • Increasing team awareness
  • Clarifying team roles and responsibilities
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Improving information sharing

Principal Objective
To relate and then translate the 5 key dimensions of the JurongHealth CRM model to produce effective team performances, improve patient safety and decrease errors.

Target Audience
This workshop is an inter-professional workshop and targets healthcare workers in hospital based practices but in particular those involved in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, anaesthesia and critical care spheres of practice. Residents and staff nurses working in the fields of Emergency medicine, Internal medicine and ICU would be ideal.
It should be of particular interest to participants of the medical SIMWars as it will enable them to better understand the non-technical requirements which need to be mastered to ensure a really successful campaign.
