After launching our EMS/EMT module this year, we've been coming up with ideas for how instructors can use an EHR system like EHR Tutor with their students.
One idea that was shared with us during a demo involved using your EHR system as a way to set up a scenario before practicing assessment and intervention skills.
To do this, find a video of an accident on Youtube (where there are a surprising number of videos showing injuries, crashes and general accidents). Show the video in class and then create a patient chart that has all the basics of the accident completed to line up with the video. For example, the fields for incident description, location and response circumstances can be filled out already. If you want your victim to display certain characteristics (like a low pulse or general unresponsiveness) make sure to fill out those portions of the assessment section as well.
