We’re on the final countdown before the Special Operations Medical Associations Scientific Assembly (#SOMSA16) & the PFC (prolonged field care) pre-conference course! An ULTRASOUND STATiON is obviously included, & there is a mini “flipped classroom” assignment that we would like you to complete prior to the course.
In case you were already wondering… Flipped classroom is a novel approach to education which has proven to be quite effective. In such a setting students start with a preview of condensed course material online, and then show off what they’ve learned, while solving practical problems during the actual in-class encounter.
Our brief SOFsono station will focus on the “WHY-HOW-WHAT” of ultrasound in prolonged field care. We will start with “WHY”, and the ViDEOCAST below will introduce your homework assignment. It will also give you a few FUN CLUES about the complex case we are going to work-up. It’s the story of Carl who broke the ROE’s (= rules of engagement), and… 😉
This case will illustrate how patient care is readily improved by ultrasound utilization in PFC. You will learn “HOW” this focused and quick tool, applied for specific indications, and aimed at identifying a limited number of findings, turns your medical actions into a precisely executed mission!
We are looking forward to seeing your in Charlotte!
