Trauma education: the next generation (of continuing education) [poster] Conference Poster uri icon

abstract

  • Introduction: In response to the changing face of health professional education, we updated the format of the Emergency Medicine & Trauma Update: Beyond the Golden Hour and created Trauma Education: The Next Generation. Methods: Prior conference evaluations and local market analysis informed the planning committee's decision to radically change this long-standing continuing education conference. Changes in format (TED talk-style lectures with interspersed HP-produced videos), length of conference (from 8 hours to 4 hours), delivery (live, with remote viewing sites and ability to have viewers watch live from anywhere with internet connection) and fee structure (nominal charge for CME/CEU, otherwise free with ability to donate money) were undertaken. We also engaged learners via social media and encouraged interaction before, during, and after the conference via Facebook and Twitter. Results: Pending at the time of this abstract, conference occurs 9/5/13.
