This one-day course covers abdominal pathology and musculoskeletal trauma in the preclinical setting.
Presenting? Or not present at an emergency room, consult with the family doctor? Perhaps the trickiest question to answer as an ambulance nurse or undergraduate medical provider when you are ”in people’s homes.” This continuing education day will cover the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the abdomen and practice formulating a differential diagnosis through clinical reasoning.
The afternoon program focuses on the musculoskeletal system; how does it work, what can it do and how does damage occur. What luxations or fractures can be expected with a particular trauma mechanism and how to act on them. Examination of various joints will be practiced on this day. Prior to the course you will receive a syllabus with relevant literature.
After completing this course, you will be able to make an informed differential diagnosis, in the preclinical setting, in patients with abdominal complaints and musculoskeletal trauma.
