Advanced and Complex Medical Emergencies (ACME)
2 full days & 1 half day:
The ACME course uses simulation training methods to improve the understanding of human factors and their impact on the quality of team-based clinical care within the emergency medicine environment. The course also allows participants to practice and update core clinical ABC skills.
While there is a significant immersive simulation component to the course, there are also small group discussions and skills stations on various aspects of the complex specialty of Emergency Medicine. The ACME course aims to stimulate and provoke the experienced physician practicing Emergency Medicine and who wishes to be challenged. Because the emphasis in this course is on learning and sharing information, there is no formal assessment of participants. The ACME course is accredited for 23 ACEM CPD hours and relevant Procedural Skills Maintenance requirements.
The ACME course is only available to Fellows (FACEM), Advanced Trainees in their final two years of FACEM training and SMO/CMOs working primarily in Emergency Medicine. Non-FACEM enrollees need to provide DEMT approval for participation in the course.
