Hello All,

I have worked in pediatric level 1 ER for about a year and am now heading up a new education committee. Would love y'alls input on how your hospital educates in a busy ER setting. Right now we currently dont have alot of education and if we have education it is policies based or on any new equipment. I am trying to set up ways to do case studies, refreshers on syndromes, disease processes, medications etc.... Would love any input on what works and doesnt work.

Thanks!!!

As the critical care educator, I developed a Critical Care lecture series. On the first Monday of the Month I would offer a one hour lecture (for CE). It was offered 2-3 times per day so more people could make it in. I covered medication, disease process and used case studies at the end to stimulate discussion.

we have computer based learning so people can sit in whenever their schedule allows. Self-studies work if your objective is for awareness, not skill.
