The Dentistry’s Essentials of Emergency Medicine (DEEM) training program allows participants to practice and debrief medical emergency scenarios in a high-fidelity, controlled and safe environment. Our expert instructors provide robust training experiences using human patient simulators, audiovisual recordings and standardized patients. This workshop is designed to engage participants in challenging clinical cases and enable participants to problem-solve in a manner that is similar to a live clinical experience. You will use real medical equipment, learn to read a patient monitor and interact with dynamically responding patients in a fully functioning simulated dental operatory. You will receive formative performance feedback as you progress through the live training, helping to identify your strengths and areas for improvement.
This intense learning experience will be fun and educational and will empower you to be at your best with your patients in the clinical arena. The clinical scenarios are designed to meet several learning objectives, including developing your skills in not only medical knowledge but also interpersonal communication, team leadership, resuscitation dynamics and systems-based practice.
Experts from emergency medicine, paramedicine, dental anesthesiology and perioperative care were consulted in the development of this course content to create an evidence-based, state-of-the-art training program. This program will help you be able to recognize a patient requiring urgent or emergent care and how to initiate evaluation and management in the dental setting.
This is the first time this simulation training workshop will be presented in the Bay Area.
