As POCUS becomes affordable and nears greater adoption, more agencies will look to add this valuable assessment tool to their arsenal. How can an agency or individual train for this high-tech procedure typically reserved for physicians and in-hospital practitioners? In this webinar, we will discuss the requirements of a solid POCUS training program including developing didactic content, working with standardized patients, and creating DIY simulation models for procedural techniques such as ultrasound-guided IV access.
