Emergency Medicine - Faculty Education Retreat 12.4.19
Target Audience: Emergency Medicine Faculty - Physicians
Understand the responsibility of the emergency physician as the leader of the ED team in the academic setting to intervene when necessary to ensure optimal patient outcomes, optimal patient experience, and efficient department functioning in the ED.
Discuss the role of departmental and institutional policies and administrative processes in helping to avoid or prevent situations from disrupting patient care and the smooth functioning of the ED.
Consider ways for providing EM residents with the knowledge and experiences that will prepare them to act as the leader of the EM team when they become attending physicians themselves.
Consider mechanisms for preparing trainees to deal with common and uncommon situations in which they will be expected (as attending physicians) to assume responsibility as leaders of the ED team and provide a reasonable resolution for problems that may occur at any time during the ED’s 24-hour functioning.
