Salient Training in Emergency Medicine International, STEMI

was formed in 2004 to address the emergency medical training

needs of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals

currently in postgraduate training, or in existing practice in Australia.

Understanding the challenges facing clinician participation with continuing education programs, STEMI provides a highly flexible system to overcome these obstacles. Small classes, taught on-site using salient information and delivery methods, are the cornerstones of the STEMI system. Rather than promoting a “cookie cutter” model, where courses are blindly developed, STEMI develops courses around the industry and clinicians’ needs at varying levels.

Courses are taught by senior instructors, with extensive backgrounds in emergency medicine, in small classes of your peers, on-site at your facility/office. All instructors have a minimum of 5 years instructing experience, and are well versed with medical emergency treatments in the pre-hospital and hospital setting. All presented information requires a minimum of 2 independent reviews, often one from an accrediting college or your organization (hospital, surgery, school, etc), and sourcing to Australian and international protocols prior to delivery. We’ve taken that extra step to ensure you will have the very best instructors with the very best information- always!

STEMI enjoys relationships with numerous international institutions and experts, granting unparalleled access to information, and research worldwide.

How are classes setup?

  1. We at STEMI have developed programs to overcome some of the most common continuing education excuses:

  2. “Classes aren’t offered when I’m free”

  3. With STEMI, we don’t tell you when classes are offered, we arrange times which work with your schedule.

  4. “Classes are pitched at the wrong level. Either I’m bored or I’m confused”

  5. The “level” system (see each course tab) allows you to select the level you feel is within your scope of training and practice.

  6. “Classes aren’t located nearby, and I can’t take that much time off work, or afford, to travel”

  7. STEMI comes to you. As with the date and time, you determine where our classes are held. Whether in downtown Perth or in downtown Julia Creek, STEMI provides the same salient classes where you need and want them. We do, however, require a minimum total of 4 attendees for each class.

  8. “All I want is a class on ‘ABC’, not the whole alphabet”

  9. This is where the modular system demonstrates its’ value. Attendees graduate through the “modules” over time, thereby preventing data dumps and “useless” information sessions. STEMI strives to provide succinct, relevant classes which grow as the attendees acquire more information and feel more comfortable.

  10. In general, the ABC classification system works like this:

  11. Introductory theory and skills

  12. Advanced theory and skills

  13. Global management and response theory and skills.

  14. Remember, the ABC modules are grouped by “level”; thus an ACLS 2A class (advanced cardiac life support, level 2 module A) would provide the JHO an introduction to ACLS theory and skills. Please see each section for class content description details.

  15. “Presentations are so big I feel uncomfortable asking questions or I don’t get enough hands-on time”

  16. STEMI classes are always small- which attributes to our enormous success. Most lecture portions will be under 20 students (often less then 10), with hands-on/skills sections limited to 5 attendees per instructor. Question and answer sessions are always available during the class sessions, as well as via email once you are a STEMI member.
