Conference Brochure

Introduction to Emergency Medicine Ultrasound (POCUS) - 5 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held from Feb 11 - 15, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 40 Category 1 points.

Course Description:
Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) has become an expected component of the emergency medicine toolkit. Both ACEM and ASUM expect competency with E-FAST, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), Basic Echo in Life Support (BELS), Lung ultrasound and ultrasound guided vascular access. POCUS is a real time, non-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic tool which involves both theoretical and practical domains. It also requires a well-founded grounding in basic scanning techniques which lays the foundation for safe and effective ultrasound practice. This course was designed for emergency medicine and general physicians who aim to incorporate beside ultrasound assessment in their practice. There is an emphasis on practical aspects led by expert sonographers and clinicians. A low student to tutor ratio ensures reasonable hands-on ultrasound practice on a diverse volunteer population, which increases attendance’s confidence of providing safe and focused bedside ultrasound assessment.

ACEM |  This course accredited for 37 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours as complying with ACEM standards and policies for AAA, E-FAST, BELS (including cardiac arrest) and Guided Peripheral Vascular Access, Lung, Pleural Effusion and Pregnancy (1st trimester).
ACRRM | Approved for 30 PDP points; 30 points PRPD; 30 pts MOPS Radiology; 30 pts MOPS Emergency Medicine
CICM | Lectures – Category 2A, points per hour 1;Demonstrations - Category 2B, points per hour 2; Skills – Category 3B, points per hour 3
RACGP | Activity Number: 142751, 40 Category 1 points. Specific Requirement Eligibility - Diagnostic radiology Grant Approved Training | 5 days under Emergency Medicine, Anaesthetics, Obstetrics and Surgery.

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course the attendees should be able to:
• Identify the parameters of safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis
• Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ultrasound.
• Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical questions
• Recognise the sonographic appearances of normal and abnormal structures required to answer common clinical questions
• Perform E-FAST, AAA, Lung, BELS, Vascular Access, Early pregnancy ultrasound techniques
• Acquire images obtained on normal adult volunteers & phantoms
• Interpret images from normal adult volunteers
• Recognise the variants and abnormalities from presentations and case-based learning.
• Document the ultrasound findings
• Equip the learner with the foundation skills to begin to incorporate the ultrasound skills with the clinical situation to make appropriate management decisions
