CHALLENGING CASES IN TOXICOLOGY

This course will provide a series of multiple-choice, question-based cases involving life-threatening clinical poisonings and adverse drug reactions typically encountered in the emergency department or other acute care settings.
 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
 

  • Define the general principles of caring for the poisoned patient
  • Differentiate specific and crucial points of pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of particular poisonings
  • Discuss important medical literature that serves as the underpinning for the rational practice of toxicology
  • Develop case-based clinical problem-solving skills

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for emergency medicine physicians as well as other clinicians who practice in an acute care setting (e.g., internists, family practice physicians, pediatricians, hospitalists, and intensivists). Participants will have an opportunity to review and advance their knowledge of current practice patterns and recent advances in clinical emergency medicine.
