Point-of-Care Ultrasound Workshop
Point-of-Care Ultrasound Skills Workshop covers both basic and advanced principles and practice of ultrasound for clinical scenarios. Learners can choose to attend either basic and/or advance workshops to gain knowledge and improve their skills.
These skills are not specifically covered during medical school nor often are there opportunities for these skills to be demonstrated and practiced. Thus there is a need to provide an environment where such techniques and skills can be learned through a structured curriculum.
The workshop faculty comprises a selected group of emergency physicians, clinicians from the various sub-specialty, each with a wide range of knowledge and experience in teaching. SIMS has trained more than 40 trainees in this workshop each year.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a structured curriculum to teach the basic and advanced ultrasound techniques and to instill in the trainees the best practices for point-of-care ultrasound training.
At the end of the workshop, trainees will have an understanding of ultrasound physics, knobology and basic skills to perform and interpret the ultrasound images. Trainees will also learn the application of ultrasound techniques in various body systems, from basic applications such as e-FAST in trauma, abdominal aorta and gallbladder scans, to advanced applications such as lung ultrasound and ultrasound-guided procedures (e.g. insertion of central venous lines and manipulation and reduction of fractures).
