List the objectives of the self-study module phrased in a way which could complete the sentence, “Upon finishing this module, the student will be able to…” and describes easily observable behavior. For example:

– Discuss the use of the d-dimer in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolus
Initial Actions and Primary Survey
List here any actions specific to the primary survey for your topic (such as early cervical-spine immobilization in trauma patients) and other time-sensitive actions (such as the ordering and interpretation of an EKG in patients with chest pain).
List here the important critical diagnoses the student should consider in patients with the given complaint. We will use these to link to the disease-specific sections.
