When starting your career in medicine, it won’t be long until your first nightshift. It’s going to be just you and the patient in your emergency room. Are you going to wake up your on-call doctor at 4 a.m. just to ask him about that chest X-ray you ordered? In this workshop we will go through cases based on X-ray pictures that are very common in the night shift. It is going to be an interactive workshop that teaches you how to tell emergencies (that do require to wake your superior) from casualties.

Medications and pharmaceutical companies promise always advancing therapies. Should we change our proven therapies everytime a new one comes up? How shall we react to the newest information concerning different treatments?

Goal of this workshop is to learn and use the basics of evidence based practice and thereby being better able to distinguish different therapeutic approaches concerning their outcomes.
