ESEM Participated in ICEM22

In its 21st edition, the International Conference on Emergency Medicine (ICEM22) brought together healthcare workers from the field of emergency medicine to discuss the latest advances. Held as a hybrid conference from the 14th to the 19th of June in Melbourne, Australia, the theme was “better care for a better world.” Experts from across the globe discussed the need to provide more support in research, education, training and advocacy; advocacy for rational resource stewardship, the health of our planet and equity of healthcare provision.

Tip of the Month

Electronic Health Record documentation constitutes a major portion of an ED Physician’s time during patient encounters. Due to the nature of any documentation, these tasks often lend themselves to some monotony repetition, which is why some providers may opt to use Macros and auto-completed portions of text as inserts into the relevant documentation segment. While useful in saving time and perhaps maintaining a systematic presentation of ideas, care must be taken to ensure that the information copied into a patient’s records comprehensively represents the actual data obtained from and relevant to the current patient encounter. Check the information twice and structure any used auto-commands to prevent errors and misinformation.
