Goals & Objectives

Brief Summary of Case:

7 year old child, febrile for 2 days, parents notice seizure like activity and bring to emergency. During initial assement, patient seizes. Patient stops seizing when given appropriate mediations.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the debriefing the participants should be able to:

Knowledge & Skills:

  1. Assess and manage the ABCs in seizing patient
  2. Discuss pharmacologic treatment of status epilepticus (including IV, IO, and Rectal route)
  3. Recognize the potential complications of anti-epileptic medications (potential for continued seizuring with paralytic on board)
  4. Recognize and act to protect self from exposure to infection when caring for seizing children (PPE equipment)

Attitudes and Judgement:

  1. Communicate respectfully
  2. All learners articulate that they felt free to voice their thoughts
  3. All learners actively participated in the scenario
  4. Acknowledge the value of full parent participation
  5. Demonstrate effective communication during the scenario: constructing clear messages, closed loop communication, sharing mental model
