Forensic autopsy techiques
Full Prof. Slobodan Savić
The aim of this workshop is to familiarize students with the objectives and modalities of general and special forensic autopsies, as well as the practical importance of the autopsy findings, both for legal and for medical science and practice. It will be displayed and discussed what is true , and especially which misapprehensions are shown in numerous films and series in relation to the opportunities provided by forensic autopsy. The work will be organized in autopsy hall, as a demonstration of the autopsy and the amphitheater in the form of video-display the most interesting cases from the archives of the Institute of Forensic Medicine.
Advanced life support
Assist. Prof. Ivan Palibrk, TA Jelena Veličković
Advanced Life Support (ALS) Workshop will prepare you to respond to life-threatening emergencies in the adult population with advanced interventions. This ALS course is based on the latest guidelines which focus on doing several tasks simultaneously with a group process that enables efficiency and minimization of error.
This course will teach participants how to perform advanced emergency interventions as well as review foundation issues including Basic Life Support, the Resuscitation Team, Life-Threatening Issues, Medical Devices, Bradycardia, Tachycardia, and much more.
This workshop teaches the knowledge and skills required to:
- Recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using a structured A B C D E approach.
- Treat cardiac arrest in special circumstances, including starting CPR, manual defibrillation, life threatening arrhythmias, and post resuscitation care.
- Lead a team, work as a team member, and use structured communication skills including giving an effective handover.
The program will emphasise the practical aspects of resuscitation and provide participants with the theory underpinning such aspects. The students will have an opportunity to practice the airway management (endotracheal intubation, laryngeal mask placement, mask ventilation) and to take part in solving different CPCR scenarios guided and monitored by experienced instructors.
Full Prof. Olivera Stanojlović, Assoc. Prof. Aleksandra Rašić Marković Assist. Prof. Dragan Hrnčić
Participants of this workshop will have opportunity to gain experience in wide-range of contemporary neurophysiology techniques and methods. Tips and tricks on assessment of convulsive, anxiety and depressive-related behaviors, pain thresholds as well as learning and memory in experimental conditions will be covered. We’ll discuss how to design, analyze and interpret experiments in the field of behavioral, electrophysiological, cognitive and pain studies with special focus on their translational aspects. Hands-on experience in light-dark, open-field, forced swimming, radial maze, elevated plus maze, von Frey tests, EEG and many others will be provided. Instructions will be individually tailored according to participant’s attitudes.
Craniocerebral trauma – Diagnosis and Management
Assist. Prof. Vladimir Baščarević
Introduction of the participants to all types of craniocerebral trauma, their classifications, diagnostic principles, neurological exam of the patients, decisions about certain diagnostic methods, therapy approaches and temporary and definite consequences for the patient.
What is pharmacovigilance and why is it important?
Assist. Prof. Janko Samardžić
All of us, from children to parents, friends and partners, will take medicines at some point in their lives. The aim of pharmacovigilance is the safer and more effective use of medicines for everyone. Pharmaciovigilance, also known as drug safety, is a new medical discipline that is crucial in preventing medicine-related adverse effects in humans, promoting patient safety, and the rational use of medicines. Pharmacovigilance is defined by the WHO as the science and activities related to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse drug effects or any other possible drug-related problems.
During last decades it has been demonstrated that medicine related morbidity and mortality is one of the major health problems and among the first ten largest causes for mortality in the USA. They result in the death of several thousands of patients each year, and many more suffer from adverse drug reactions. The percentage of hospital admissions due to adverse drug reactions in some countries is more than 10%. In addition, the hospital care of patients with drug related problems is financial burden on health care.
The scope of pharmacovigilance has grown remarkably in recent times and is now considered to include the following domains: adverse drug reactions, interactions between medicines, misuse and abuse of medicines, luck of efficacy, and medication errors. The products under consideration go beyond conventional medicines and also include herbal medicines, complementary products, biologicals (such as vaccines and blood products), biotechnology-derived medicines, advanced therapy, as well as medical devices.
This workshop will summarize the following key pharmacovigilance topics:
- Safety monitoring in clinical trials
- Post-marketing safety monitoring
- Basic principles on signal detection
- Pharmacovigilance operations
