It can be difficult to keep up with all of the EM research being published these days, but Michael J. Bresler, MD, believes that being aware of the latest studies is critical for emergency physicians. Dr. Bresler, clinical professor of emergency medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine and former director of the department of emergency medicine for the Mills-Peninsula Health System, is a well-known educator who is frequently invited to lecture throughout the United States and internationally.
His session, “The Top Articles of 2016,” will provide attendees with valuable insights into the trends he saw in his review of a number of recent studies in emergency medicine journals. Dr. Bresler will also illustrate why it is important for emergency physicians to keep up with the latest research.
“With medicine changing every day,” he said, “the objective of the session is to address very relevant questions to emergency physicians’ daily practice.” For example, is CT angiography a reasonable alternative to lumbar puncture for patients who experience thunderclap headaches?
Dr. Bresler will discuss this and more topics that are relevant to the daily practice of emergency medicine—and may change your practices in the emergency department. He hopes that emergency physicians will garner the latest information about which clinical policies may be outdated and need revision. “If we rely on data that’s several years old, we may not be practicing in the most optimal way,” he said.
He will also briefly review how to keep up with the various new modalities of research literature.
