SWESEMs (Swedish Society for Emergency Medicine) Education Committee has developed checklists for processes in Emergency Medicine to achieve alignment between the Swedish Specialist Examination in Emergency Medicine and clinical practice. These checklists are also meant as educational tools. An article published in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine describes the form and function of the Swedish examination and the role of the checklists (Dryver E, Eriksson A, Söderberg P, Kurland L. The Swedish specialist examination in emergency medicine: form and function. Eur J Emerg Med 2015;Aug 26). The LUCEM site provides a translation into English and adaptation of those checklists that are relevant to the Emergency Medicine Core Competences course.
