                      ACM 2009 & Symposium 2009 Feedback

The ACM Course (Clinical Course in Acute Care Medicine) was held from 16 to 18 Jan 2009. The
Symposium on Laboratory & Imaging in ACM was held on 15 January.

The enclosed information relates to feedback scores given by the registrants. We received 81 feedback
forms out of 126 registrants (65 % response). Some attendees either did not attend some sessions or
(more likely) did not mark some sessions – when no mark was entered, we counted the blank as a
“zero”. The mean score was calculated by the total score divided by the number of registrants who
marked (i.e.” zeroes” were excluded from the denominator).

Feedback was sought on a simple subjective liner scale of 1 to 5 :
(1 = Not again; 2 = OK; 3 = Good; 4 = Very Good and 5 = Excellent)

The Overall Rating for the ACM Course 2006 was 4.33. Pre-Course Communication received 4.47;
the Course Content scored 4.35 and the Course Manual averaged 4.25. The ACES – Acute Critical Event
Simulation logged 4.20 whilst the ACM website averaged 3.96. (Most of these scores are very identical
to last year’s scores – the ACES skill stations have jumped 0.15 ahead)

                      acm@easternhealth.org.au / www.easternhealth.org.au/acm
In the ACM Course, the top few scores went respectively to Medicine & Humanity 4.60, Sepsis &
Septic Shock 4.53, Unconsciousness 4.52, Non-Invasive Ventilation 4.49, Meningitis 4.47; Pneumonia
4.41; Acute Coronary Syndrome 4.36 and Clinical Quiz 4.35.
