ABSTRACT
Purpose:
As emergency ultrasound (EUS) can improve the management of emergency department patients, education in EUS has become an essential part of emergency medicine resident training. This study examined the efficacy of pediatric EUS education for resident physicians 6 months after training.
Method:
A survey was conducted on emergency medicine resident physicians who participated in the Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Course in November 2014, which is a training program of pediatric EUS generated by Korean Society of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Society of Emergency and Critical Care Imaging. The instructor checked the list to evaluate attendee after the course. After the course, resident physicians have been encouraged to use EUS at the patient’s bedside, and the same list was checked 6 months after the course. At the same time, a survey of the number of experience of EUS during the 6 months was performed.
Results:
Ten emergency resident physicians of Seoul National University of Hospital participated in the course and all attendees were re-evaluated 6 months after the course. The mean initial score immediately after the course and that at the 6 months follow-up was 28.6±3.13 and 20.8±3.79, respectively (p<0.05). No significant relationship was observed between the difference score and the EUS experience number, including the observations of the other physician’s EUS (p=0.603) and hands-on by themselves (p=0.771).
Conclusion:
Although a EUS education program could improve the resident physician’s ability, the effect decreased with time. Hence, the resident physician’s EUS ability cannot be maintained via simple emergency department duty. Therefore, the education program should be repeated regularly.
