Here is a clinical scenario: An adolescent male presents to the emergency department on an evening shift with right lower quadrant abdominal pain. Your resident ordered an ultrasound to rule out appendicitis; the radiology resident on call prefers to do a CT for this indication and tries to convince your learner to change her request. How can you use this scenario to teach physician competencies to a resident or medical student? It’s easy and fast with the CanMEDS Springboards mobile app for Emergency Physicians! How does it work? To get you started, the app is loaded with 65 searchable, peer-reviewed clinical scenarios and suggested teaching moments for all 7 CanMEDS Roles. In the case presented above, the teaching moment covers the Health Advocate, Manager, Medical Expert and Collaborator Roles. Practical teaching moments on common clinical scenarios… on the fly! AUDIENCE This app was designed for those in the Emergency Medicine field who play the role of teacher to medical students, junior or senior residents. This includes, but is not limited to, EM physicians, faculty and residents. While the Springboards app is specialty-specific, there are many scenarios that are also common in other fields. Examples of common trigger words that transcend specialties include items such as: health promotion, interprofessional relations, staying current in your practice, ethical issues, conflict resolution, disclosing, navigating the healthcare system, patient safety, and many more. *** FEATURES The CanMEDS Springboards is designed to: 1. Search for clinical scenarios, also known as springboards, that lend themselves to CanMEDS teaching moments; 2. Create your own common springboards; 3. Tag your favourite springboards for easy retrieval - simply touch the star appearing before the springboard; 4. Log teaching moments- either through springboards programmed in the app, those you create yourself, or through generic/blank springboards that allows you to track general CanMEDS teaching moments that are not associated with a springboard; and 5. Track your teaching moments and share/email teaching data (e.g. topics, types of learners, amount of time clinically teaching, etc.). You can take advantage of these features for personal planning, or to share teaching charts or springboards with othersâ€â€chiefs, department heads, etc. 6. Customize specific teaching tips for your own use and subsequently share them with other app users.
