Prior studies have demonstrated that EM applicants consider geography as well as modifiable/non- modifiable program factors. Less attention, however, has been paid to underrepresented groups. Additionally, the prevalence and characteristics of “red flags,” or factors that may lead an applicant to lower a program’s rank or not rank it at all, remain…
 
Delayed diagnosis of cerebrovascular disease (CVD) among patients can result in substantial harm. If diagnostic process failures can be identified at emergency department (ED) visits that precede CVD hospitalization, interventions to improve diagnostic accuracy can be developed.By Gita Pensa MD
 
Emergency medicine clinicians are excellent at identifying and treating physical trauma as a chief complaint, but are often unaware of patients’ previous experiences of trauma. The purpose of this study was to describe emergency department (ED) patients’ lifetime experiences of trauma.By Gita Pensa MD
 
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the first-line medication for acute low back pain (LBP). It is unclear if the choice of NSAID impacts outcomes. We compared ibuprofen, ketorolac, and diclofenac for the treatment of acute, nonradicular LBP.By Gita Pensa MD
 
Increasing the diversity of the emergency medicine (EM) workforce is imperative, with more diverse teams showing improved patient care and increased innovation. Holistic review, adapted from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), focuses on screening applicants with a balanced method, valuing their experiences, attributes, and academi…
 
The authors developed a series of five virtual workshop sessions in 2019 that were held over Zoom in June and July 2020 in the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eight learners completed the curriculum. Prior to each session, learners were provided pre-session materials including podcasts, recorded lectures, and readings. Thought-provoking questions…
 
Effective feedback is the cornerstone of competency-based education. The emergency department (ED) is a unique learning and feedback environment. Developing our understanding of emergency medicine (EM) residents’ experiences around feedback will improve resident training and inform EM faculty development programs. This qualitative study explores th…
 
Widespread vaccination is an essential component of the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet vaccine hesitancy remains pervasive. This prospective survey investigation aimed to measure the prevalence of vaccine hesitancy in a patient cohort at two urban Emergency Departments (EDs) and characterize underlying factors contributing to …
 
Appendicitis is the most common surgical condition in pediatric emergency department (ED) patients. Prompt diagnosis can reduce morbidity, including appendiceal perforation. The goal of this study was to measure racial/ethnic differences in rates of 1) appendiceal perforation, 2) delayed diagnosis of appendicitis, and 3) diagnostic imaging during p…
 
The chief resident role often includes additional administrative and educational experiences beyond those of nonchief senior residents. It is unclear to what extent these experiences influence the postresidency career path of those selected as chief residents. The objective of this study was to evaluate the association of chief resident status on i…
 
Firearm injuries are one of the leading preventable causes of morbidity and mortality among children. Limited information exists about the impact of nonfatal firearm injuries on utilization and expenditures. Our objective was to compare health care encounters and expenditures 1 year before and 1 year following a nonfatal firearm injury.…
 
Teaching and learning in the clinical setting are vital for the training and development of emergency physicians. Increasing service provision and time pressures in the Emergency Department (ED) have led to junior trainees’ perceptions of a lack of teaching and a lack of support during clinical shifts. We sought to explore the perceptions of learne…
 
Uniformly training physicians to provide safe, high-quality care requires reliable assessment tools to ensure learner competency. The consensus-derived National Clinical Assessment Tool in Emergency Medicine (NCAT-EM) has been adopted by clerkships across the country. Analysis of large-scale deidentified data from a consortium of users is reported.…
 
Effective sepsis resuscitation depends on useful criteria for prompt identification of eligible patients. These criteria should reliably predict a discharge diagnosis of sepsis, ensuring that interventions are triggered for those who need it while avoiding potentially harmful interventions in those who do not. We sought to determine the proportion …
 
We interview Dr. Scott Simpson about his recent AEM article describing the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)-Clinical Practice Screener's ability to predict suicide and emergency department (ED) visits for self-harm in the year following an ED encounter.By Gita Pensa MD
 
Little is known about patient perspectives to effectively engage patients immediately following opioid overdose. Our objective was to explore patients’ perspectives on substance use treatment, perceived needs, and contextual factors that shape the choice of patients seen in the emergency department (ED) to engage with treatment and other patient su…
