Hello all, I've been trolling the boards for a while, and thought I'd finally give in and start posting!
I've recently been picked to start and lead a unit-based education committee and am having trouble coming up with good ideas for topics... anyone have any ideas for topics that could be useful to new grads and old-timers alike in the ER?

I have, through the grapevine, requested ideas from other staff members r/t education topics, but unfortunately do not have the resources to offer any good prize for surveys
But I do like some of the already posted ideas, thanks!
Even a pair of movie tickets or a gift cert to dinner somewhere would be enough. But, an even better incentive is that the topics chosen will be chosen from what is turned in, LOL :chuckle.
We've had docs come in and explain surgeries--before, during and after--and explain specific instructions for recovery. It gives good rationales for what we do.
I like to hear other departments talk about what they do; social work, etc. Pharmacy might be interesting.
I think a mock code would be great. We're working on getting equipment to film mock codes; that way we can discuss afterwards how it went. If you do that, though, you might want to mix it up with new and experienced nurses.
