EMCREG-International has been conducting live educational symposia an webcasts since 1998. Since that time we have held more than 30 live educational symposia at professional scientific sessions including the American College of Emergency Physicians, Society for Academic Emergency Medicine and the American Heart Association. We are proud of our educational history and strong reputation for delivering unbiased and state-of-the-art content on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular, neurovascular and critical care conditions important to the acute care provider. Our audiences span multiple disciplines involved in the collaborative care of acute care patients including emergency physicians and nurses, cardiologists, hospitalists, laboratory medicine clinicians, pharmacists and physician assistants.
As academic emergency clinician educators, EMCREG provides an ideal mechanism for educating the emergency medicine community on cutting-edge evidence-based research, and facilitate acceptance and understanding of current treatment guidelines. The wealth of experience and clinical acumen associated with such a geographically diverse network of veteran clinician researchers has resulted in the development of the consultation arm of EMCREG-International. These consultation efforts are geared toward helping companies understand both the clinical usefulness and obstacles associated with embracing a new diagnostic or treatment technology in the clinical ED setting. EMCREG also specializes in streamlining and promoting collaborations between specialties that share the clinical care of acute care patients including cardiologists, hospitalists, intensivist, critcal care, nursing, laboratory medicine, and pharmacy.
The ability to consult with such a large number of well-known and geographically diverse emergency physicians in a round table discussion setting has proved invaluable to industry efforts to assess the clinical utility of a promising new diagnostic or therapeutic technology. Will a promising technology ultimately be practical in the clinical ED setting in its current form?; What are the practical, clinical and political obstacles to adopting promising new technologies?; and What alterations to a technology or its marketing would allow its utility and acceptance in the ED to be realized? This ability to rapidly organize such an expert panel with minimal effort has proved appealing for companies facing short development timelines.
With well over one and a half million combined Emergency Department (ED) visits at EMCREG sites annually, EMCREG-International is ideally positioned to conduct clinical trials quickly and efficiently. Our network of veteran academic clinical researchers and thought leaders provide existing robust academic research infrastructures, personnel and clinical trials experience in the development, initiation and conducting of single- or multi-site clinical trials. The consultation arm of EMCREG also offers an unparalleled opportunity for companies developing acute care protocols to understand and optimize the involvement of emergency medicine who often serve as a gatekeeper for acute care initial presentations thereby reducing barriers to enrollment across specialties.
Our educational outreach has been further extended with an increasing number of professional quality educational monographs and hot-topics CME publications. To-date EMCREG has produced 44 CME monographs covering an extensive variety of important acute care topics facing clinicians. The dramatic increase in emergency acute care research and advancements has opened the door to a floodgate of educational opportunities fueled by a proportional increase in physician interest to keep current. Each educational piece we produce is delivered to an average of 35,000 acute care providers including emergency medicine, cardiology, hospital medicine, and critical care. Our educational monographs have covered an impressive variety of topics including, but not limited to:
|Acute Decompenstated Heart Failure||Acute Ischemic Stroke||CAD / PAD|
|UA, NSTEMI, STEMI||Transient Ischemic Attack||Pulmonary Embolism and DVT|
|Cardiac Biomarkers||Intracerebral Hemorrhage||Time To Treatment|
|ACC/AHA Guidelines||Cardiogenic Shock||Acute Care Collaboration|
|Atrial Fibrillation||Septic Shock||Critical Care|
|High Sensitivity Troponins||Hypertensive Emergencies||Severe Bacterial Infection|
