As front line health care providers, we have to be ready for anything! Switching gears between counselling a patient during a routine office visit and promptly responding to a true office emergency is all part of the art of primary care. Patients look to us for skilled, knowledgeable emergent care and comfort whether saving a limb, helping a child breathe again or treating a life threatening allergic reaction. Join us as we review an evidence-informed approach to common office emergencies!
