Le Cours ÉDU
See Le cours EDU website for registration
Le Cours ÉDU À partir de 2001, le cours ÉDU – Écho au DU a été enseigné plus de 700 fois á plus de 10.000 médecins canadiens. Son utilisation est devenue la norme dans les grands centres de traumatologie, les régions éloignées et dans les unités de combat des Forces canadiennes. Le cours est unique en ce qu'il a continuellement évolué au fur et á mesure que l'équipe d'instructeurs ont compris de mieux en mieux comment le débutants développent leurs habiletés. De nombreuses techniques ont été développées pour aider l'apprenant à acquérir une compréhension de base de l'échographie, et de la génération et l'interprétation des images. Ceci rend le cours ÉDU le véhicule d'enseignement le plus efficace pour cette modalité. A la fin d'une journée, les participants seront en mesure de détecter: les épanchements péricardiques, les AAA, les hémorragies intra-abdominales et les grossesses intra-utérines A partir de 2014, le cours de ÉDU a placé l'ensemble de son matériel didactique en ligne. Les participants peuvent maintenant lire le texte et regarder les cours théoriques dans le confort de leur foyer, à leur propre rythme. Vous avez manqué quelque chose dans une présentation? Ce n'est plus un probléme. Il suffit de rembobiner et regarder à nouveau. Cela nous permet de fournir encore plus de temps « la main sur la sonde » la journée de cours
