Another successful Division of Emergency Medicine resident research day took place this May! There were a total of 11 Royal College abstracts and 9 CCFP-EM abstracts submitted for presentation, some of which are being presented at conferences across North America including CAEP, SAEM and NAEMSP. This year's winners were:
1st place: Matt Davis (PGY4) - "The utility of the prehospital electrocardiogram in the emergency department management of patients."
2nd place: Allie Meiwald (PGY4) - "Ambulatory Visits to a Canadian Emergency Department (A.V.C.E.D.): Why Do Low Acuity Patients Come?"
1st place: Rob Joffe (PGY3 CCFP-EM) - "Should LHSC extend its hours of ultrasound availability to rule out Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?"
2nd place: Johanna Mahn (PGY3 CCFP-EM) - "The LHSC emergency department experience with acute investigation and diagnosis of aortic dissection."
Congratulations to all of the participants and their research supervisors!
A special thanks to Shelley McLeod, division research coordinator who help guide the residents through many of their projects! Well done everyone!
