Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine

Author: Robert L. Rogers
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118469712
Release Date: 2012-10-18
Genre: Medical

Emergency medicine attendings who wish to hone their teaching skills can find a number of books on educational strategies written by physicians from other disciplines. However, until the publication of the first edition of this book, they did not have access to a text written by emergency medicine physicians on methods of teaching that are directly applicable to teaching EM. This book was compiled to meet that need. Following the introductory section, which provides important background information, the book’s contents are organized into 4 sections that correspond to the core needs and interests of EM educators: Section 2 focuses on practical and ethical considerations of teaching in the ED; Section 3 provides strategies for teaching specific groups of learners; Section 4 looks at the skills that are characteristic of the best EM educators; and Section 5 looks indepthly at specific teaching techniques and strategies. Now more than ever this book addresses the needs of physician educators from all over the world. New chapters discuss lecturing to an international audience; using simulation as a teaching tool; how to make journal club work for you, and other topics that are of broad interest to medical educators in this field. In general, each chapter has been updated and reviewed to make sure the content was something that emergency physician educators could use in any country . The chapter contributors are widely regarded as leaders in the field of emergency medicine education and faculty development. Authors were given free rein to develop their chapters and write in their own style. They were asked to present their personal views on how to successfully teach the art of emergency medicine, rather than review evidence-based guidelines regarding medical education. As a result, most of the chapters have few references. This first-person approach to a multi-authored textbook yields a compilation that varies in style from chapter to chapter and exposes the reader to a variety of communication techniques.

The Constitution of the United States of America

Release Date: 2017-12-17

So I was surprised to find that while the United States Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with the Bill of Rights was here, the full current Constitution with all amendments was not. So here it is. This is of course subject to change, but fortunately with great difficulty. The writers of the original document were wise to make modification through amendments difficult. This has served to keep all sorts of nonsense out of this great document. In fact reading this entire document I was impressed with it once more and could only find one foolish amendment: Amendment XVIII better known as the Prohibition Amendment. There was actually an interesting piece in Smithsonian Magazine about how this amendment came to pass in such short order. It was due to the coming together of some strange bedfellows: The Ku Klux Klan, The Industrial Workers of the World (wobblies), Suffragettes, the Temperance Movement, as well as various churches. This confluence also produced ratification of Amendment XIX-women's suffrage-so there really is a silver lining to every cloud.
