Compiled by authors experienced in designing highly respected and successful courses, this guide gives sound, clear advice on the most effective methods of teaching. Covers an introduction to the basic principles of teaching and deals in detail with a number of modes of teaching on courses. Lectures, skill stations, role play, workshops, discussions and e-learning are all explored and in each case practical guidance is given to help the reader to become a more effective teacher. Though designed for trainees on life support instructor courses, Pocket Guide to Teaching for Medical Instructors contains practical guidance applicable to any health professional interested in becoming a more effective teacher. Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training Advanced Life Support Group, Manchester, UK The Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training (POET) programme provides an introduction to the obstetric patient and the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during pregnancy (including interpretation of patient-held records and rapid assessment of the obstetric patient). It includes clear definitions and describes risk factors, diagnosis and pre-hospital management of significant problems that occur in both early and late pregnancy and the immediate postnatal period. These are all situations that the pre-hospital practitioner may attend. This text and the accompanying integrated on-line and ‘hands on’ course will help practitioners identify and manage a range of time-critical obstetric emergencies specifically in the pre-hospital setting, and provides a structured examination and assessment technique as an aid to determining what treatment should be provided before transport, as well as when and how urgently transport should be initiated. POET is of relevance to paramedics, ambulance staff, doctors, and nurses working in the emergency pre- hospital setting and to midwives facilitating home births. It will also be of considerable value to medical and nursing practitioners working in Emergency Departments and unscheduled care settings where immediate access to skilled obstetric assistance is not available.

Safe Transfer and Retrieval of Patients (STaR) is aimed at all health care workers involved with inter and intra-hospital transfers. It provides a much needed structured approach to transfer medicine, together with sound guidance on relevant clinical procedures. The second edition has been extensively revised in line with new developments in transfer medicine. The book has been redesigned with five distinct sections covering: the principles of the STaR structured approach to transfers the management of the transfer or retrieval practical procedures related to transfer medicine an overview of clinical care during the assessment and stabilisation phases of transfer the legal and safety aspects of transfers, specific differences in helicopter transfers and transfers involving children A new chapter, the infectious or contaminated patient, has been added, in light of current concerns around the potential transfer of infection between patients and staff. The major revisions to this STaR coursebook bring it into line with the latest thinking on patient transfers, making it an invaluable guide for anyone involved in this aspect of health care. Paediatric and Neonatal Safe Transfer and Retrieval The Practical Approach Advanced Life Support Group, Manchester, UK With over ten thousand inter-hospital transfers of children and neonates now taking place every year in the UK, this book, and the associated training course run by the ALSG have been developed to provide an introduction to the knowledge required to undertake these transfers. Paediatric and Neonatal Safe Transfer and Retrieval (PaNSTaR) is aimed at healthcare professionals either beginning their training in paediatric or neonatal transport and those who are involved in undertaking such transfers on an occasional basis. Developed by a multi-professional group from across the UK, this new title incorporates a systematic approach throughout. This approach is adapted from the adult STaR course and covers the following: an overview of the current delivery of children’s transport services the ACCEPT approach (Assessment, Control, Communication, Evaluation, Preparation and Packaging, Transportation) practical issues that are encountered during the transfer process from both an equipment and a clinical perspective special considerations and circumstances that require additional planning useful appendices that contain supporting information, sample checklists and example documentation. 2006 • 9780727918550 • 248 pages • £43.99/$81.95/€57.90 2008 • 9781405169196 • 208 pages • £47.99/$89.95/€67.90

Pines & Worth W. Everett Both University of Pennsylvania This useful handbook provides a concise compilation of the evidence supporting diagnostic testing and clinical decision rules in emergency care. Clinical decision rules are now widely recognised as best practice for the ordering of diagnostic tests in the emergency department. Aimed at all physicians working with emergency and acute patients, the book begins with an overview of how to evaluate a diagnostic test using an evidence-based approach, followed by an explanation of the clinical decision rules and the methods of assessing the strength and applicability of the clinical prediction rule. For each test and clinical decision rule, the most current and best-available studies in the literature are discussed and applied to emergency department and acute care patients in addressing the question at hand, followed by an overall recommendation on how to use the test or rule in the clinical context. Evidence-based Emergency Care is an accessible and extremely useful reference for physicians at all levels to use in applying an evidence-based approach to ordering and interpreting tests in an acute care environment. Evidence-Based Emergency Medicine Brian Rowe, University of Alberta Emergency physicians assess and manage a wide variety of problems from patients presenting with a diversity of severities, ranging from mild to severe and life-threatening. They are expected to maintain their competency and expertise in areas where there is rapid knowledge change. Evidence-based Emergency Medicine is the first book of its kind in emergency medicine to tackle the problems practicing physicians encounter in the emergency setting using an evidence-based approach. It summarizes the published evidence available for the diagnosis and treatment of common emergency health care problems in adults. Each chapter contextualizes a topic area using a clinical vignette and generates a series of key clinically important diagnostic and treatment questions. By completing detailed reviews of diagnostic and treatment research, using evidence from systematic reviews, RCTs, and prospective observational studies, the authors provide conclusions and practical recommendations. Focusing primarily on diagnosis in areas where evidence for treatment is well accepted (e.g. DVTs), and treatment in other diseases where diagnosis is not complex (e.g. asthma), this text is written by leading emergency physicians at the forefront of evidence-based medicine. Evidence-based Emergency Medicine is ideal for emergency physicians and trainees, emergency department staff, and family physicians specialising in the acute care of medical and injured patients.

Brady University of Maryland; University of Virginia With over 200 traces to test your knowledge, this book is a first class learning tool for emergency physicians. Basic student level knowledge of ECGs is assumed, so the reader can move directly to learning about the more complex traces that occur in the emergency department. The level of difficulty is stratified into two sections for specialists in training and specialist emergency physicians. A minimum amount of information is given beneath each trace, as if in the real situation. The full clinical description is printed in a separate section to avoid the temptation of “looking”. Accompanied by learning points, and with the cases presented randomly, this book provides a rich source of information on the interpretation of ECGs – a core skill for all emergency department staff. “Mattu and Brady have put together 200 ECGs that illustrate virtually all electrocardiographic diagnoses. This is achieved in a self-assessment format that is instructive and interesting... I recommend these as continuing education for Emergency Medicine Specialists: no matter how well honed your skills, there is something here that will make you stop, think and learn... After you have read this book, I suspect the next person to ask you “Just check this ECG” will be overwhelmed with your knowledge!” EMJ ONLINE ECGs for the Emergency Physician 2 Amal Mattu & William J. Brady University of Maryland; University of Virginia This extension to the popular ECGs for the Emergency Physician Volume 1 continues to provide the emergency health care provider with outstanding practical and emergency medicine-relevant teaching of a life-saving skill: emergency electrocardiography interpretation. This volume can be used individually or paired with Volume 1 to present one of the most comprehensive and educational ECG collections ever assembled for emergency physicians and other acute health care providers. Special features of this volume include: Greater focus on dysrhythmias Provision of more clinical outcomes of actual cases to simulate real-life experience in emergency medicine More pearls and pitfalls to help avoid clinical errors and learn from common mistakes Superb illustrations in the commentary section to assist both learners and teachers ECGs for the Emergency Physician Volume 2 will benefit all emergency health care providers, especially experienced physicians, residents/registrars in training, students, nurses, paramedics.

Sprigings & John B. Chambers Northampton General Hospital; Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, London and Maidstone Hospital, Kent This extremely popular title has become the definitive pocket guide to the management of medical emergencies for front-line hospital doctors. It provides detailed guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of all common conditions and includes a step-by-step guide to the nine most important practical procedures in acute medicine. Content is divided into common presentations, specific problems and procedures, and has been broadened to include all problems in general medicine likely to be encountered in the emergency department. A key feature of this fourth edition is the integration of echocardiography. Extensively revised and updated to reflect current approaches to diagnosis and management, this edition also incorporates colour and uses flow diagrams, tables and figures to make key information easily and quickly accessible. “This book makes an excellent companion for the junior doctor in the Emergency Department or the Admissions Unit... [It provides] the essentials in an easy to use format and comes highly recommended as an at-your-fingertips companion.” ACUTE MEDICINE JOURNAL, DECEMBER 2008 Essential Guide to Acute Care 2ND EDITION Nicola Cooper, Kirsty Forrest & Paul Cramp The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust; The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust; Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust The Essential Guide to Acute Care contains everything you really need to know about acute care that you can’t find in a standard textbook and have probably never been taught before. Starting with the concept of patients at risk, the Essential Guide to Acute Care explains how to recognise and manage the generic altered physiology that accompanies acute illness. The principles of acute care are explained simply yet comprehensively. Throughout the book mini-tutorials expand on the latest thinking or controversies, and practical case histories reinforce learning at the end of each chapter. The chapters are designed to be read by individuals or used for group tutorials in acute care. “This book is for trainees who regularly come into contact with acutely ill adults. By explaining the physiological changes it aims to provide a logical basis for management and optimal care. To provide a book that will be useful to a range of grades from a variety of disciplines is certainly a challenge. However I think this book succeeds admirably. It really does provide a lot of information that you really want to know and understand and which is not available in the standard texts...” CLINICAL TUTOR AND FOUNDATION PROGRAMME DIRECTOR, CHELTENHAM GENERAL HOSPITAL

Rogers, Amal Mattu, Michael Winters & Joseph Martinez All University of Maryland School of Medicine Inherent to the teaching and practice of emergency medicine are specific challenges not found in other specialties – the unknowns of the emergency department, the need to identify life- and limb-threatening conditions, the pressure to solve problems and find solutions quickly, and the orchestration of clinical specialists and ancillary services. Because of these unique demands, books written by clinicians from other disciplines, that extrapolate their information from other specialties, aren’t always suitable references for teachers of emergency medicine. This book is different – it shows how to incorporate effective teaching strategies into the unique teaching atmosphere of the emergency department, how to effectively lecture, lead small groups, give feedback, foster life-long faculty development skills, and much more – it is written by emergency medicine physicians for emergency medicine physicians. Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine gets to the essential core of how to best teach the art of practicing emergency medicine and provides the blueprint to become a better teacher, providing guidance on how to accomplish skilful teaching in busy emergency departments. It provides emergency physicians and trainees with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently transmit information to learners in the often times chaotic emergency department environment.
