Course Programme

Background, Focus Groups and Emergency Medicine Experts

In keeping with the advice from the GMC, AORMC and JRCPTB, we recognize that a break from clinical practice can impact upon your confidence and may provoke feelings of anxiety around your own clinical performance, knowledge and practical skills in dealing with acute emergencies.

This one-day course has been specifically designed to assist you in the transition back into the ED environment with a focus on team working, clinical human factors and improved patient safety. With a choice of break-out sessions the day is adaptable and intended to appeal to all levels of training (ACCS/ST1 to consultants), any member of the EM team who would like to feel more prepared and confident when returning to work after a period of absence for any reason.

Education Team

Designed & Led By EM Doctors

Our team members have all taken time out of clinical practice themselves for a variety of different reasons and hence have an understanding of the challenges involved in the transition back into ED.

Similar courses have already been developed for the RCA and RCPCH where feedback has been consistently excellent. Our hope is that EM RETURN course participants will enjoy the opportunity to network and go on to become future course faculty, able to share their own personal advice and experience.
