2023 Focus on POCUS: Ultrasound for the Acutely Ill Patient

Madison, WI US
May 2, 2023 to May 3, 2023

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 procedures such as central line placement, peripheral IV placement, and other target based procedures.

Course is limited to 15 participants

Course is available for UW and affiliates only.

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 due to significant time and training needed for learning the skills of POCUS.

The overall focus of this activity is to provide participants with the skills of how to obtain basic point of care ultrasound images, the knowledge to interpret normal compared to abnormal images and an understanding of point of care ultrasound best practices.

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 employing evidence-based practice. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competency of communication.

Intended 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 procedures of central line
  • Performing ultrasound guided peripheral IV placement
  • Obtaining ultrasound images of heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder, abdomen, veins, knee and soft tissue to screen for causes of shock
  • Performing ultrasound guided arthrocentesis
  • Determining appropriate utilization and limitations of point of care ultrasound
