Master Clinicians Lecture Series - Learn Online Now

Subtle EKG findings or atypical symptoms can potentially be life threatening acute cardiac pulmonary emergencies and are easily missed if you are not looking. When do you have to worry about a patient complaining of back pain, abdominal pain, or a sore throat? How can clinicians identify these subtle clinical findings and atypical signs? Learn from our Emergency Medicine Master Clinicians Mentor to ask the right questions and identify the red flags that are suspicious for these can't miss presentations.

  • Risk Management

    A missed MI or appendicitis means millions of dollars in malpractice. Treating so many people with chest pain, abdominal pain, back pain or sore throat, we develop cognitive bias and can easily miss subtle signs or symptoms, especially when the patient is young and looks well. Dr. Gino Farina highlights common mistakes and misdiagnoses clinicians make, and teaches important risk management skills to get us to ask the right questions and identify red flags.

  • Learning Objectives

    After completing this activity, you will be able to: 1) Identify 5+ case scenarios including diagnosis of aortic dissection, pulmonary embolism, appendicitis and other life threatening diagnoses concerning the back and soft tissue. 2) Manage these cases from an outpatient setting perspective and lower the risk for your clinical practice. **Please note that this lecture is also part of the Urgent Care Conference On-Demand course**
