The RESP-High Risk Emergency Program has been developed to provide CPD in the recognition, workup and management of emergency presentations associated with the risk for serious / life threatening illness. The course explores "red flags" associated with a specific presentation that indicate an increased risk for serious disease and identifies the workup and emergency management of these patients. The program aims to increase confidence in identifying and treating adults where serious disease is a major consideration.

Course Outline:

The course is divided into 8 modules that cover the following topics :

  • Critical Thinking in High Risk Emergencies
  • Acute Chest Pain
  • Acute Headache
  • Fever/Sepsis
  • Acute Abdominal Pain
  • Severe Dyspnoea
  • Syncope/Collapse
  • Severe Agitation.

The course is delivered using a series of case based video podcasts, interactive case simulations and clinical management summaries. Completion of a graded quiz enables the learner to assess their understanding and mastery of an individual topic. Written summaries and selected readings allow learners to review and explore a topic in greater detail.

Single page "Clinical Management Summaries" have been specifically developed for the course as a means of assisting clinicians to apply the algorithms for diagnosis and management discussed in the course into their clinical practice.

The course is designed to be completed over approximately 8 weeks with an average of 2 hours / week but can be easily completed in a shorter or longer time frame according to the individual learner's schedule. Enrolment is for a period of 24 months.
