CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? The steps for performing a bougie-assisted cricothyroidotomy (BAC) have not been systematically developed, leading to instructional and performance variability. What did this study ask? Can the modified Delphi process be used to establish the essential steps required for BAC instruction? What did this study find? Using a modified Delphi methodology, we developed a 17-item BAC checklist to guide instruction for novice learners. Why does this study matter to clinicians? This checklist, developed by expert consensus, can be used to improve consistency in training for this life-saving procedure...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? EM is a specialty with a broad knowledge base making it daunting for a junior resident to know where to begin the acquisition of evidence-based knowledge. What did the study ask? What list of "top papers" was formulated in the field of EM using a national Canadian Delphi approach to achieve an expert consensus? What did the study find? A list was produced of top studies relevant for Canadian EM physicians in training. Why does this study matter to clinicians? The list produced can be used as an educational resource for junior residents...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? The first two articles of this quality improvement (QI) Primer Series for emergency medicine (EM) clinicians reviewed foundational steps to prepare for and execute a QI project. What did this study ask? This article focused on the measurement, evaluation, and sustainability of QI projects. What did this study find?

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about this topic? Gathering visual information effectively is an important task of a physician leader when managing a resuscitation case. What did this study ask? Are there particular visual information-gathering patterns associated with performance in simulated resuscitation scenarios? What did this study find? Certain visual patterns (e.g., focusing on case-specific clinically relevant stimuli) are associated with better performance in a simulated resuscitation setting. Why does this study matter to clinicians? The ability to characterize physician visual patterns across a competence continuum has implications for trainee assessment and medical education...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Emergency department (ED) visits for adolescent alcohol-related concerns offer the opportunity for early intervention; however, the underlying alcohol problem generally remains unaddressed. What did this study ask? What are ED physicians' perceptions regarding adolescent alcohol use and ED-based intervention? What are their current intervention practices? What did this study find?

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Early warning scores reduce morbidity and mortality by identifying patients at risk for deterioration on the medical wards. What did this study ask? This study sought opinions from emergency department (ED) staff on the use of early warning scores in the ED. What did this study find? Emergency doctors and nurses did not value early warning scores despite quantitative data showing efficacy in the ED. Why does this study matter to clinicians? We gleaned insight into how to implement a computer-based early warning score into the ED to reduce morbidity and mortality from septic shock...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Little has been published on the structure and curricula of the Canadian College of Family Physicians Emergency Medicine [CCFP(EM)] programs across Canada. What did this study ask? Describe the major components of CCFP(EM) programs and how they are incorporated into curricula. What did this study find? Programs have similar clinical rotations, ultrasound, and simulation requirements. Variation exists in administrative structures, financial resources, academic projects, and competency-based curricula...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Most hospital settings do not provide an optimal environment for sleep. What did this study ask? Assessed the subjective quality of nighttime sleep and its affecting factors in the emergency department (ED). What did this study find? Subjective sleep quality was lower in the ED, as compared with home sleep, and was affected by stress, noise, pain, and stretcher comfort. Why does this study matter to clinicians? ED sleep is not optimal but can be improved, as the factors disturbing it are potentially modifiable...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Most children who sustain a concussion suffer from post-concussion symptoms for many weeks following the accident. What did this study ask? Is there an association between ondansetron administration and the presence of persistent post-concussion symptoms at 1 week and 1 month in children? What did this study find? This observational study found that the use of ondansetron among children presenting to the emergency department with an acute concussion was associated with a higher risk of persistent symptoms at 1 month...

CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? Age-adjusted D-dimer thresholds have been proposed to improve specificity of diagnostic testing for thromboembolism in patients ages 50 and over. What did this study ask? What is the diagnostic accuracy of an age-adjusted D-dimer threshold in a population of patients undergoing investigations for suspected pulmonary embolism (PE)? What did this study find? Age-adjusted D-dimer cut-offs improved specificity but at the expense of a slightly higher risk of missed PE...

Introduction/Innovation ConceptEmergency medicine (EM) requires physicians to deal with acutely ill patients in a fast-paced and dynamic environment, which creates a barrier to debriefing after critical events. These unique challenges can negatively impact wellness. We sought to adapt and implement a peer-support wellness program called 'Ice Cream Rounds' in an EM residency setting. METHODS: A needs assessment survey was conducted among EM residents at The University of Ottawa to gauge interest and obtain resident input regarding program design...

Donna Goodridge, James Stempien
CLINICIAN'S CAPSULE What is known about the topic? While EDs serve a critical role in the care of older adults, about 25% of visits made by older adults are classified as "non-urgent". What did this study ask? What are older adults' reasons for seeking non-urgent care in EDs? What did this study find? Comprehensiveness and convenience of diagnostic and treatment services in a single location were the primary motivations for older adults to seek treatment in the ED. Why does this study matter to clinicians? Novel partnerships between EDs, primary and community care are needed to better address the non-urgent care needs of older adults...
