EB Medicine Will Release Its Newest CME Resource, Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies, Volume II, at the 2016 ACEP Scientific Assembly in Las Vegas

Eric Legome, MD and Lee Shockley, MD join forces with EB Medicine and leading peer experts to deliver annual dose of trauma-specific CME for emergency departments.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 12, 2016 – Norcross, GA – EB Medicine will release the sequel to its award-winning book, Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies, October 16-19 at the ACEP 2016 Scientific Assembly in Las Vegas. Currently in use by trauma programs in hospitals across the country, Emergency Trauma Care provides a sustainable, easy way to ensure practitioners meet necessary trauma CME requirements. Not only does this resource provide treatment guidelines, it includes commentaries on each topic from the emergency medical services, research, surgical, legal, economic, and nursing perspectives--in an effort to give a view of all aspects of trauma care.

The new edition of Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies covers some of the most timely and pressing concerns for emergency clinicians today. It was edited by Eric Legome, MD, and Lee W. Shockley, MD, MBA, co-editors of the Cambridge University Press textbook Trauma: A Comprehensive Emergency Medicine Approach, who led a team of physician contributors to produce this specialized trauma resource.

“We considered both current events and trends that impact care in the ED, including increasing gun violence, an epidemic of obesity, a growing number of geriatric patients susceptible to trauma, and a greater focus on trauma-related pain management as we developed the concept for our next high-impact CME offering,” says Dr. Legome. “These serious public health problems grab headlines, and emergency physicians are on the frontline every single day in caring for these unique patients populations.” Other chapters address common but critical sports injuries and the ever-present medical legal concerns.

In six chapters, Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies, Volume II, provides 18 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, enough to satisfy CME requirements for clinicians working in Level-1 trauma centers. The content also counts for other kinds of specialty CME, including three credits each for geriatric, child abuse/domestic violence, pain management, and legal/risk management. Buyers of the first volume describe it as a “succinct, educational, and informative resource that allows us to get the required annual trauma CME credits in a one-stop-shopping manner.”

Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies, Volume II is targeted not only at emergency physicians, but is appropriate for all clinicians on the trauma team, including PAs, nurses, surgeons, radiologists, and others. Many EB Medicine customers rely on the resource as a facility-wide CME solution, and group rates are available.

Both volumes of Emergency Trauma Care: Current Topics and Controversies, as well as EB Medicine’s other clinical review and CME products, will be showcased at Booth S1913 in the exhibit hall at the ACEP Scientific Assembly 2016.
