Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine

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.


A 2008 paper from Academic Emergency Medicine, "The 3-Minute Emergency Medicine Medical Student Presentation: A Variation on a Theme," stood out, Dr. Mitra said. But it didn't translate into practice as easily as a video might.

Effective Consultation In Emergency Medicine

Consultation is a common form of communication in the emergency department in which the emergency provider seeks the assistance of another service in the care of the patient. As with other forms of communication, incorporating a structured model can help ensure information is exchanged accurately and efficiently to reduce the chance of medical error. This video features the 5Cs of Consultation as a validated model for standardizing communication and provides illustrative examples of effective consultation for both medical students and residents.
