EB Medicine has joined forces with Dr. Patrick O'Malley to create The Laceration Course to offer high-impact training guaranteed to build skills and boost clinical confidence.
Maybe you have switched jobs and need a refresher on laceration management. Or you’ve been suturing for years but want to learn the latest evidence and best practices. Or you may manage an emergency department or urgent care facility and want to ensure your clinicians are competent with this vital skill set.
This 13-module online video course covers the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and mechanics of lacerations — from simple to complex wound repairs — with step-by-step guidance, demos, and practical tips to make the lessons stick.
It presents current best practices, all backed by evidence, many of which may challenge and change the way you do things from now on.
The Laceration Course was developed by Dr. Patrick O’Malley, a board-certified emergency physician with more than 15 years of experience. He has worked in a number of community emergency departments and urgent cares of varying sizes and acuity levels.
Set yourself up for success by making The Laceration Course part of your continuing medical education.
