This project aims soften, shorten and simplify the course of hospital-admitted patients with community-acquired pneumonia.

The project will be conducted in connection to a PhD, with the following 4 studies and sub-aims planned:

Systematic review: To assess the outcome efficacy of point-of-care ultrasound studies published within the last 10 years.

Delphi study: To build systematic expert consensus on the optimal curriculum and teaching methods in point-of-care emergency ultrasound courses.

Learning study: To improve course participants’ learning from a point-of-care emergency ultrasound course.

RCT: To find the effect of focused lung ultrasound as part of the objective examination of ED patients with suspected pneumonia, when compared to chest x-ray.
