The practice based problem we wish to address is the lack of point of care ultrasound skills and knowledge. Practitioners now have the ability to purchase their own portable ultrasound devices and use them to treat their patients. In order to ensure quality and high performance, our CME workshop will include both didactic lectures from specialty and fellowship trained providers, along with a hands-on component using standardized patient volunteers. This will provide both theory and training practice outside of the clinical environment that will enable providers to be more comfortable using point of care ultrasound in their practice.
