Dr. Milan Jurga

Workshop Title: Shoulder dislocation management:

Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity participants will be able to:

1. Identify relevant shoulder anatomy

2. Review common mechanisms of injury

3. Review diagnostic imaging signs of dislocation

4. Review strategies for shoulder reduction

5. Practice the strategies

6. Review pearls and pitfalls of each strategy

7. Discuss when to refer and who needs an emergent consult to Orthopaedics

Dr. Tania Sullivan

Simulation: Pediatric Meningitis

Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize early, the critically ill child.

2: Demonstrate primary survey, SAMPLE history and differential Dx generation in the child with Fever and altered mental status.

3: Recognize and name petechial rash and the time sensitive importance of considering meningococcemia +/- meningococcal meningitis in the differential.

4: Balance and prioritize timely resuscitation with investigations and targeted therapeutic interventions- this will require shared leadership and clear role assignment and closed loop communication.

5: Demonstrate advanced airway management in the critically ill pediatric patient and communicate procedural plan, team-based approach including pre-ox, position/ meds/plan A-B-C.
