E-Learning Micromodules

With help from the Micro-Module Courseware Development Grant Schemes of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, we are able to develop Management of Trauma in the Emergency Department.


The five component-based narrated slides include interactive material that will guide students through a scenario, set tasks for student to work through whilst challenging their knowledge and analytical ability. The five topics are Trauma Calls and Trauma Team; Reception and Initial Resuscitation; Investigations in Trauma; Spinal Immobilisation, and; Splinting. This is followed by simulation training and clinical attachment for two weeks at our Emergency Department.

This project fills a major knowledge gap in the undergraduate medical curriculum. Previous informal didactic teaching has now been transformed into formal teaching syllabus during medical student’s rotation at Emergency Medicine.
