This is a theme-based poster session for improving patient care in ED. There are always multiple issues faced by every emergency department, ranging from system-based lacunae, personnel-based issues, logistics and resource-related problems, to co-ordination within and between departments. Everyone working in the ED has multiple ideas as to how things can be improved for better patient management. ED jugaad session will give them a platform to express some of those ideas as an idea poster.


*Some of the ideas can be:

  • How some device or procedure could be modified for better training/patient care
  • How academic training can be improved in a busy ED
  • Any less known gadget or web-based software which can be easily incorporated in patient care/academic training
  • How emergency care system in your hospital can be improved if you were given command
  • Ideas for improving pre-hospital care for your area

If someone has done something for betterment of patient care/resident training in their emergency department, which was successful or has made a substantial impact, we will like to hear from you. For those who have not practically done it yet, but have ideas in mind, can find this as a platform to express those thoughts. These ideas may actually prove path breaking for development and progress of Emergency Medicine in our country.
