All members had served as a course director in the third or fourth year of medical school training at their institution. The committee met from June to June during announced public meeting at national conferences ACEP, SAEM to allow other educators to participate via teleconferences several times throughout the year and by email on routine basis. The consensus was that the curriculum should be targeted to the fourth-year medical student completing a four-week course in PEM, taking advantage of the knowledge and skills students had obtained during their core pediatric clerkship and potentially an EM clerkship.
Therefore, a two-tiered system was built for the curriculum: 1 topics for a fourth-year medical student course in PEM, and 2 topics that should be covered in an EM clerkship with a PEM component.
The working group then focused on the development of specific goals and objectives that would guide the experience of the four-week PEM course.
To promote continuity between undergraduate and graduate medical education, the group composed objectives based on ACGME core competencies Appendix. These objectives can be assessed through observation on shifts, standardized and virtual patients, self-directed learning, simulation, and other means. Subsequently, the committee focused on knowledge content.
The evaluation and management of pediatric patients is affected by their unique anatomy, physiology, and psychosocial development. Certain complaints are so frequently encountered in PEM that they should be included in this curriculum.
Complaints and diagnoses have seasonal variability. Pediatric patients are at greater risk for medication and treatment errors. The textbook is extremely pleasing in that, unlike many large reference texts, the subspecialty areas manage to maintain their relevance to the practice of emergency medicine.
The textbook is divided into seven sections: It is precisely the ease of reference and division of information that makes this text so useful in the emergency department.
Although it covers a broad range of issues from analgesia to transport, it is focused on the NOW decisions often made in the emergency department. It covers the diagnostic approach to 78 different clinical signs or symptoms. Once the diagnosis is made or suspected, management information follows in the subsequent sections. The section on medical emergencies is primarily system oriented.
It also contains useful sections on toxicological and environmental emergencies. The section on trauma begins with an excellent overview of the injured child and is then divided into subspecialty areas of trauma from burns to ocular injuries. The section on surgical emergencies is also primarily divided into surgical subspecialty areas.
The section on psycho-social emergenciesis a must for the practicing emergency physician. The section addresses many difficult scenarios that may present to the emergency department. Finally, the procedures section nicely rounds out this text.
The text in this section is somewhat brief but is enhanced by a large number of illustrative diagrams. Noteworthy points include the index, which is 60 pageslong and quite complete.
The textbook also has excellent internal referencing. The figures and tables are very useful, and the radiographic images reproduced extremely well. The section on dermatology, however, would benefit from color pictures. The textbook has been criticized for being overly conservative.
This is clearly a matter of opinion, and one can argue that a reference text on pediatric emergency medicine should have a conservative nature. The most significant criticism of the text is not with its content but with its binding.
The text used for this review demonstrated wear out of proportion to the age of the text. Overall this is an outstanding reference that will serve its reader well.
Broken bones and other orthopedic conditions in children are almost a prerequisite for reaching adulthood. This well-written and concise text, while intended primarily for the practicing orthopedic physician, will serve as an excellent resource for the emergency physician.
