Faculty and planning committee members participating in continuing medical education programs provided by AAEM have disclosed to the audience any real or apparent conflicts of interest to the content of their presentation. AAEM’s Education Committee and ACCME Subcommittee have established procedures to resolve conflicts of interest.
In order to maintain their medical practice at the highest possible level, emergency physicians need up to date information on a variety of topics in emergency medicine, including both clinical and workplace issues. This Congress will meet those needs by providing cutting edge information in several relevant areas. AAEM frequently polls its members for potential topics to be covered. A majority of the topics for 2017 were selected specifically on recommendation of a member.
When planning activities, the AAEM Education Committee uses the 2016 Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine to determine the education needs of the emergency physicians attending the Congress. The Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine details the core content of emergency medicine and undergoes an on-going review.
This activity is designed for providers engaged in the practice of emergency medicine who are seeking the most current information in the field, presented at a skill level appropriate to the education needs of the emergency physician.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to apply new principles to improve their everyday practice of emergency medicine and to increase their understanding of the emergency medicine workplace.
