Effective Consultation in Emergency Medicine

"EMRA, CDEM, and CORD are excited to announce the release of a new educational video entitled "Effective Consultation in Emergency Medicine."  This video joins earlier productions on patient presentations and transitions of care to provide learners in emergency medicine with instruction on optimizing different forms of communication that take place in the emergency department.  Effective consultation reinforces the importance of structured communication and shares the 5Cs of Consultation as a validated model. Illustrative examples are provided for both medical students and residents. Enjoy the show!"  

Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine

EMRA and CDEM launched "Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine," a training video for medical students. Demonstrating how to tell a compelling story when presenting a patient's case, this brief video offers hand do's and don'ts on how to communicate efficiently and effectively in the ED. EMRA Education Committee members Michael Yip, MD, of Yale School of Medicine, and Aditi Mitra, MD, of William Beaumont - both of whom appear in the film - said the project grew from a simple discussion about how best to serve students.

Transitions of Care

Improving transitions of care – also called patient handoffs – is a national patient safety priority as communication failures are a leading cause of medical error. Different models have been developed to promote the accurate transfer of patient care information. In a multi-institutional study, a handoff program using the “I-PASS” mnemonic as a structured-communication tool was found to reduce medical errors and preventable adverse events in the inpatient pediatric setting. This video provides an overview of effective transitions of care within the emergency department and features the I-PASS mnemonic.
