Focus on POCUS: Ultrasound for the Acutely Ill Patient

Madison, WI US
June 8, 2022 to June 9, 2022

Learn point of care ultrasound skills and knowledge from faculty experts in "Focus on POCUS: Ultrasound for the Acutely Ill Patient." Participants of this two-day, immersive course will develop skills to identify causes of shock and respiratory failure in the acutely ill patient through didactics, integrative case-based learning and expert-guided small group hands-on scanning skills practice. Course participants will also learn how ultrasound can be used to safely guide a variety of clinical techniques such as central line placement, peripheral IV placement, and lumbar puncture.

Practice Gaps and Needs

The American College of Physicians formally acknowledged the important role of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in internal medicine. In recent years, POCUS has been used by an increasing number of internal medicine specialists and subspecialists to improve diagnostic timeliness and accuracy. However, there is still a significant gap in the safe and effective use of ultrasound within internal medicine and hospitalist specialties due to significant time and training needed for learning the skills of POCUS.

The overall focus of this activity is to discuss these practice gaps and provide participants with the knowledge to interpret normal compared to abnormal images and give an understanding of appropriate use of ultrasound.

Elements of Competence

This activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and systems-based practice. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competency of communication.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the needs of primary care physicians and physician assistants.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participation in this educational series, clinical care providers as members of the healthcare team will improve patient safety by:

  • Performing ultrasound guided central line placement
  • Performing ultrasound guided peripheral intravenous line placement
  • Performing ultrasound guided lumbar puncture
  • Obtaining ultrasound images of the heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder, abdomen, veins, and spine
  • Determining appropriate utilization and limitations of point of care ultrasound
