Day 3

Day 3 (7:00 – 12:30pm)

Utilizing audience response systems, structured case vignettes will be used to simulate case presentation. These cases will provide strategies for application of newly learned knowledge based on material presented over the last two days.  The expected results are for the learners to comprehend, diagnosis and formulate plan of action for various of conditions presented using evidence-based medicine and current guidelines provided in previously lectures and to mitigate medical errors.   Question and answer session will also address real life cases from participants and active engagement methodologies will be utilized in an effort to relate past experience and current knowledge with the material presented.
