2020 Bedside Procedures
Using a blended curricular approach of live didactic teaching and simulation-based hands-on training, participants will learn, review and demonstrate best practice techniques for the performance of the more common invasive bedside procedures as relevant to the hospitalist. Topics include vascular and intraosseous access, paracentesis, thoracentesis, and lumbar puncture. The use of ultrasound for procedural performance will be showcased, and its application will be practiced during each topic’s session. The course has an optimal faculty-to-learner ratio that will maximize the learning experience; cutting-edge ultrasound units will enhance the experience while skills are practiced; and fluid-filled, anatomically-representative task trainers will facilitate basic skills acquisition.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:
- Demonstrate the proper techniques for performing some of the more common invasive bedside procedures
- Determine when and how to use ultrasound guidance to facilitate procedural performance
- Formulate an overall approach to performing procedures by integrating knowledge and skills acquired in this basic course to further develop technical proficiency
