Acute ophthalmology is organized by Eyecademy and will be held from Dec 03 - 04, 2020 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Malmo, Malmo, Scania, Sweden. Target Audience: AT doctor, Doctor in specialist training / ST, Completed specialists (Continuing education) Description: According to the National Board of Health and Welfare's regulations, emergency physicians must be able to "handle all acute illnesses and accidents, at all ages, for a limited time and with available resources". In addition, it must be possible to "evaluate the risk versus the benefit of different treatment alternatives from a medical, logistical and ethical perspective and from a patient safety perspective". Around the country, it is often emergency doctors who make the primary assessment of eye cases in the evening and on weekends, as most hospitals do not have an eye service during these times. This places special demands on the emergency physician's ability to handle acute ophthalmological cases according to the above guidelines. Overall goals: • Better medical care of eye patients in an emergency department • Fewer and more adequate referrals to a specialist unit 3. Greater security to handle the acuity of this patient group and initiate treatment of the most acute conditions. Be able to evaluate ophthalmological findings as a suspected part of systemic disease Results for the participant: The course is based on SWESEM's education committee's guidelines for "acute ophthalmology". The ambition is that the theoretical and practical knowledge goals that are sought will be achieved to a large extent in this course. In other respects, the course aims to give the participant: • Increased theoretical knowledge goals in ophthalmology • Practical skills in ophthalmological examination technique adequate in an emergency room • Greater security in handling an emergency eye patient • More adequate referrals and better communication with the right terminology with eye contact Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
Brain metastasis in lung cancer is organized by Physicians' Institute for Professional Development in Healthcare Lakarnas institut for professionell utveckling i sjukvarden (LIPUS) and will be held on Dec 04, 2020 at Lundqvist & Lindqvist KLARA STRAND, Stockholm, Sweden. Target Audience: Doctors in specialist training / ST, Completed specialists (Continuing education) Description: Treatment of brain metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a complex clinical problem. Whole-brain irradiation is of limited benefit and can lead to serious side effects. Stereotactic steel therapy also has limited benefit but may be relevant in patients with a few brain metastases. Surgery, with its attendant risk of complications, only applies to a small group of patients. Targeted therapies for oncogenically driven tumors, on the other hand, have been shown to be effective against brain metastases, but therapy resistance is a common problem in these cases. Overall goals: In this national course on brain metastatic NSCLC, we will summarize and discuss available treatment options for brain metastatic NSCLC. Our goal is to guide clinicians in decision-making of treatment for this difficult patient group Results for the participant: The aim of the course is to give the participant a good guide on how each lung cancer patient with brain metastases should be treated in the best evidence-based way and adapted to the patient's disease situation. Therefore, the course program has the structure that all possible treatment steps are presented and discussed. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Tumor orthopedics Course is organized by Karolinska Institute and will be held from Jan 27 - 29, 2021 at Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, Stockholm, Sweden. Start date: 27 January 2021 End date: 29 January 2021 Need Description: Benign tumors of the skeleton and soft tissues are relatively common. As an orthopedist, it is important to be able to diagnose these and have knowledge of who requires treatment, which is usually done at an orthopedic tumor center. Sarcomas are very uncommon and differential diagnosis against other more common orthopedic disorders is sometimes difficult. It is important to know the symptoms and investigation and get guidelines on which findings cause referral to the tumor orthopedic center for diagnosis and treatment. These patients are often subjected to advanced reconstructions, which can also sometimes be applied to more common orthopedic conditions such as advanced prosthetic loosening and common joint fractures. It is therefore valuable for orthopedists to know the indications and complications of such special prostheses. Palliative orthopedic surgery for skeletal metastasis is increasingly in demand due to increased prevalence of cancer patients and increased opportunity for good surgical palliation despite advanced skeletal destruction. It is important that orthopedists are aware of the indications for surgery for pathological fractures and for paralysis due to vertebral metastases so that these patients really get relief. Many of these patients can be operated on in non-specialized clinics and here orthopedists must have knowledge of reconstruction methods. Course Objectives: Overall goals: • Gain knowledge about symptoms, diagnostics and treatment of patients with primary tumors in the musculoskeletal system as well as knowledge about treatment and complications. • Gain knowledge about skeletal metastasis, its investigation and indications for different types of palliative measures and then mainly orthopedic surgery. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Radiation physics, technology and radiation safety in radiology is organized by Michael Sandborg and will be held from Feb 08 - 12, 2021 at Linkoping University Hospital, University Hospital, Linköping, East Götanmaan län, Sweden. Target Audience: Doctor under specialist training / ST Description: Modern medical imaging equipment is complex and can harm patients or provide insufficient imaging information if not used safely and optimally. Basic knowledge in radiation physics and radiation safety is currently not given to a sufficient extent in the medical program. This knowledge is e.g. necessary when purchasing new X-ray equipment so that consideration can be given to enabling sufficient image quality to be achieved to a minimum of patient radiation dose. As a specialist doctor is sometimes also a supervisor or clinic manager, he or she needs knowledge of the rules that healthcare must follow in order for the business to be a safe workplace from a work environment point of view. X-ray examinations and radiological interventions make a significant contribution to the public's radiation doses and this proportion is increasing as increasingly radiation-demanding methods are used. Objectives Topics: The aim of the course is to provide good conditions for ST doctors to acquire the knowledge required as a specialist in medical radiology and as a radiological management manager. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Acute Neurological Symptoms and Diseases is organized by Uppsala University and will be held from May 03 - 06, 2021 at Uppsala university, Uppsala, Uppsala Lan, Sweden. Target Audience: ST doctor in internal medicine and emergency care. The level is adapted for the first and second year for doctors who do their ST education in neurology. It also covers a training need for AT doctors. Description: Many acute neurological diseases risk leading to permanent disabilities with impaired cognitive functions, vision and mobility. Being able to interpret neurological symptoms, make an adequate investigation and start treatment quickly is therefore important. Neurology is considered a difficult subject, especially diagnostic thinking. In the course, we discuss which treatment is effective for patients with common symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and disturbances of consciousness. We attach great importance to distinguishing patients who have a serious illness from those with difficult but harmless conditions. Stroke including thrombolysis is devoted to an entire day. We leave neurological ingenuity completely there, while the connection to scientific findings has an important place. Objectives: After completing the course, the participant is expected to have knowledge of and be able to report for: • How to interpret and effectively use clinical neurological examination to locate damage to the nervous system • Signs of serious cause of headache and dizziness, and treatment of less severe forms of these conditions • Management of sudden transient consciousness disorder, especially epilepsy, and status epilepticus • Strategies to identify causes of coma • Principles for initial treatment and transport of acutely neurosurgically ill patients • Investigation and treatment of acute ischemic stroke • Investigation and initiation of secondary prevention • Investigation and treatment of CNS infections Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
