This is published every 3mths by the VIFM. It looks at cases that have gone through the VIFM, similar to a Morbidity and Mortality session looking at what was missed and how we can avoid doing the same.

Articles: 3 minute ED presentations

Hi everyone,

Here are a couple of articles that talk about how to present cases in ED in 3 minutes. This can be modified to be used in the ISOBAR format, or for case presentations using powerpoint. These are meant for medical students, but they are actually good for every level. I learnt a few things from them too.

Oral Presentations in Emergency Medicine

Let me know if you find it helpful.

Cheers, Malcolm.
