High-Risk Emergencies: Greatest Hits & Misses

There's no better feeling than making a good catch - the right tough call - on a complicated case during a busy shift. Every time you do, you're reminded of what drew you to the high-risk field of emergency medicine in the first place: the opportunity and challenge to care for patients, repair the wounded, heal the sick, and the thrill that goes along with the job.

Now you have a resource designed to narrow your margin for error in favor of good catches. EB Medicine developed High-Risk Emergencies: Greatest Hits & Misses to give you evidence-based education that improves outcomes for patients and reduces risk for you. This multimedia CME program focuses on 5 of the highest-risk presentations and complaints you face in the ED: 

  1. Aortic Dissection
  2. Appendicitis
  3. Spinal Epidural Abscess
  4. Testicular Torsion
  5. Transient Ischemic Attack and Stroke

Plus, when you order now, you get a bonus module - on head & neck trauma - absolutely free!

Traumatic brain injury is the most common cause of traumatic death in people aged < 25 years, with a secondary peak in elderly patients. Stats like that make TBI a CME must-have, which is why we've added a new module on head & neck trauma FREE with your purchase of High-Risk Emergencies: Greatest Hits & Misses. Now you get 6 modules for the price of 5!

High-Risk Emergencies: Greatest Hits & Misses is for busy clinicians committed to career-long learning and performance improvement. Each module features comprehensive clinical instruction, as well as recommendations for improving key performance indicators that are scrutinized and measured, and for which you are being held increasingly accountable: resource utilization, throughput, outcomes, risk management practices, documentation and charting, and patient satisfaction. 

High-Risk Emergencies: Greatest Hits & Misses is different in design and by design. The multimedia components are complementary and reinforcing, a mix of short-attention-span theater for tight-schedule times, and comprehensive treatment for dedicated study days. Here's how to get the most from the modules:

Product Reviews
Eileen Toloza, MD - 11/28/2017
High-Risk Emergencies is a breath of fresh air. It doesn't just provide the same old risk management messages of "be afraid," "order more studies," and "document more." Rather, it describes our risks in objective terms, with well-researched data. It then provides unique and evidence-based strategies and tools to mitigate this risk. With this positive approach, I feel empowered to achieve better outcomes for my patients.
