Abstract

Introduction: During the one-year CCFP-EM program, residents rotate through different teaching sites. The purpose of this project is to investigate differences in procedural skills acquisition between these sites, which will help identify the effectiveness of each setting for teaching procedural skills amongst EM trainees. Methods: Over a two year period, residents enrolled in a CCFP-EM residency training program were asked to log their procedures and the sites where they were performed. The cumulative data was analyzed to show the number and types of procedures performed at each site. Results: A total of 477 procedures were logged over two years, with 198 procedures performed at urban tertiary emergency departments (EDs), 116 at community EDs, 87 at intensive care units (ICUs), 37 at urgent care centre, 24 in clinics, and 15 at other settings. Overall, 48 point of care ultrasounds, 75 vascular access procedures, 99 reduction/casting, 48 lumbar punctures, 29 procedural sedations, 125 minor surgical procedures, and 32 other procedures were performed. The majority of procedures were performed at the tertiary care urban ED, followed closely by community ED setting. The only exception was vascular access, which was performed most commonly in ICU settings. Conclusion: Our urban tertiary care ED setting provided the most learning opportunity for procedural skill acquisition, suggesting that having maximized time allocated in this setting is essential for EM learners to acquire procedural skills. One exception is that EM learners gain more vascular access training in ICUs.
