EMS Journal Club

Event: UCD CEMS Journal Club

Date:Thursday 25th 7PM
Location: UCD Belfield. Room will depend on numbers.
 
Target audience: Anybody who is interested in pre-hospital care and is willing to read the discussion papers prior to attending. 
 
Format: There will be two parts to this journal club; 
 
1) An "evidence round-up" where Dr Maeve Doheny of UCD CEMS/Irish women's international football medical team will discuss all that is current around sudden cardiac death in sports. (20 mins)
 
2) Dr Niall Conroy of UCD CEMS will lead a discussion around the following paper: 
"Pre-hospital intravenous access for survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: propensity score matched analyses from a population-based cohort study in Osaka, Japan". The discussion will revolve around the methods used and the results obtained from this work and their significance for practice. (20 mins)

3) We are still looking for pre-hospital practitioners to present and lead the discussion around another paper. Please contact us if you (as an individual or a group) would like to present. If you would like some support, CEMS staff can help you find a paper and/or co-present it with you.
