911 Office Emergencies, in a clinic near you

Emergency at work; what to do?

911 at the office is an interactive and practical workshop focused on simulation for clinical emergencies. This four-hour training is for healthcare professionals and practicing physicians or those currently completing their training.

At the end of this workshop, the participant will be able to:

  • recognize and intervene in critical clinical situations in the office such as haemodynamic disorder, respiratory failure, etc .;
  • develop a process for the continuous updating of an inventory of products and tools for critical clinical situations;
  • explain the essential elements and the main obstacles to communication and collaboration in an emergency situation;
  • use available resources efficiently;
  • Conduct a brief and rapid clinical examination of the neurological, cardiac and pulmonary systems
  • provide effective cardiovascular resuscitation;
  • use the automated external defibrillator;
  • provide tissue oxygenation with non-invasive or invasive support;
  • initiate the treatment of different urgent clinical conditions;
  • administer intra-nasal and intraosseous medication;
  • stabilize the patient and prepare for ambulance transport when required.

A unique workshop!

All simulation scenarios are realistic. They involve the manipulation of full size manikins and include actors in each scene (nurses, paramedics, patients, secretaries, health professionals, etc.).

We offer an individualized approach to participants:

  • A hands-on, interactive workshop with a ratio of 2 instructors for 8 participants in scenarios involving hemodynamic disorders, respiratory disorders and neurological disorders.
  • A learning project including the approach described in point 1. Following the registration, the participants will receive a self-management notebook including a practice evaluation questionnaire and an action plan template for dealing with emergencies at the office.

Médecins francophones du Canada recognize this simulation activity for 8 hours of Category 1 credits. In addition, the participant who completed the evaluation exercise will be able to write in his or her self-management plan for continuous professional development the time he or she allotted for the evaluation of its practice, the development of an action plan to improve his or her practice and that of the team.

Les Journées Montfort

Les JM is the largest Francophone medical gathering outside of Québec. Each year, over thirty preceptors and guest speakers meet all healthcare professionals, with a desire to share their vast experience, knowledge and passion, in two very busy days.

The topics are always contiguous to the actuality, and relatable to the reality of care that is required today and tomorrow, to improve the practice and ultimately the lives of all citizens. The interest in les JM testifies to the leadership of the Institut du Savoir Montfort and Franco-Ontarian professionals, both in research and in healthcare education.

Join us for the next edition of les JM, April 4th and 5th! Follow us on Facebook to learn about the 2019 programming.
