Gary Gaddis, M.D., Ph.D., professor and Saint Luke’s/Missouri Endowed Chair for Emergency Medicine, has been busy with presentations and teaching to international audiences.
Gaddis was one of more than 20 American physicians to speak in October at an international congress for improving emergency medicine in East Asia. He gave presentations on the topics of how to review manuscripts and abstracts and on clinical decision making in an emergency department at the first Pan-Pacific Emergency Medicine Congress (PEMC) 2012.
The four-day event, a joint meeting of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine, took place at the COEX Convention Center in Seoul, South Korea, to help developing countries establish emergency medicine systems.
Gaddis was invited to give presentations in Spanish at the IV World Congress in Emergency Medicine and Disasters at Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on Nov. 15-16. His presentations will focus on the criteria for early diagnosis of sepsis in the emergency department and medication-related problems including drug interactions that are critical emergencies.
He also served as a guest instructor in basic research skills in emergency medicine at the headquarters of the American College of Emergency Physicians in Irving, Texas, on Nov. 9-10, presenting to physicians from the United States, Canada, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
