    CEMO is a CPD Outreach program for rural physicians and Emergency Department teams. We've been operating continuously since 2008. The program is fully accredited. We  have developed needs-based education for rural teams in the area surrounding Ottawa as well as Iqaluit. CEMO can offer valuable CPD programs to your members across Canada. 

    Visit the CEMO website:  CEMOttawa.ca

    We offer CEMO Virtual, as well as Onsite (case-based group learning), Simulation, and POCUS program formats to suit all needs. Dates are ongoing.


    CEMO’s Overall Program Goal is to update knowledge and skills in Emergency Medicine. We offer tailored, practical, and team-based continuing professional development. We want to empower you to manage cases in your community emergency department with confidence and to safely transfer patients when needed.

    CEMO Brings evidence-based and best-practice education. Most importantly, our needs assessment process means that we tailor sessions to your needs. Not a one-size-fits-all program!

    Learn together with your ED team. CEMO brings your team of doctors, nurses and pharmacists together to learn and problem-solve. You’ll gain practical solutions to clinical care challenges to apply in your department.

    CEMO Speakers are University of Ottawa emergency physicians with academic expertise and a community-friendly outlook.

    Event Description:

    Pressure and acute stress can dismantle even the best of physicians. We will go over the physiology of stress and its effects on cognitive and physical performance; and the deliberate ways in which we can armour ourselves against its ill effects and "flip the script"- letting stress fuel our performance at times when it matters most. Learning Objectives: Review a useful working model of human cognition. Review interactions between stress, cognitive load and human performance. Use effective strategies to maintain cognitive performance in high-stress situations.


    Presenters:

    Dr. Fil Gilic -  Full time rural EM physician, Kingston area
    Simulation Educator, Queen's University. Founder of RuralResus.com rural medical education website and courses. After a stint in the Canadian Forces as a paratrooper, he tried to bike, sail, paddle and hike every type of environment he could find. He wandered the country as an itinerant ER doc until settling back to Kingston where he did his residency. He works in small towns around it while teaching across the nation. He tries to spend as much time in the outdoors with his two boys as he can muster.


    Dr. Kavi Singh: Dr. Singh has worked for 25 years with the Inuit of Nunavik and the Cree of Eeyou Istchee (James Bay). From skidoo toboggan medevacs, to unfreezing IV lines in his armpits in a twin otter, he realized med school and residency didn’t quite prepare him for real life.  He has spent the last decade working on changing how acute care is approached and taught for austere environments.  Apart from paddling, BJJ & being in the mountains, he loves being with his young kids and wonderful wife.

    Please note, this is not an accredited event.
    Free for SRPC Members / $50 for General Admission

    Event Description:

    Rural clinicians often manage environmental injuries due to rural communities' proximity to outdoor recreational areas and remote industrial sites.  Cold-induced emergencies include hypothermia, hypothermic arrest, and frostbite.  Mortality from hypothermia is higher in rural communities.  Recent developments, however, have improved the morbidity and mortality of individuals with these severe injuries.  This presentation will cover the assessment and management of patients with cold-induced emergencies in a rural/remote context.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Accurately classify cold-induced emergencies to determine their severity and the appropriate management.
    • Describe the appropriate management of cold-induced emergencies in a rural/remote context.
    • Describe some of the unique challenges that arise from managing cold-induced emergencies in rural/remote contexts.

    Presenter:

    Dr. Dave Jerome is a physician with the Canadian Armed Forces.  He completed a rural FM residency at NOSM University, and an additional year of EM training at Queen's University.  He was the Founding-President of the Canadian Association of Wilderness Medicine (CAWM), and continues to serve on the CAWM Board of Directors.  He has presented at a number of national conference and on the EMCases Podcast on many topics related to environmental and wilderness medicine.
