SGEM#125: I’m So Excited

Posted by on Jun 21, 2015 in Conferences, Featured, Podcasts | 2 comments

Podcast Link: SGEM125 Date: June 20th, 2015 The goal of the Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM) is to shorten the knowledge translation window from over ten years down to less than one year. It accomplishes this by doing a critical appraisal of a recently published article using the Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine (BEEM) process. BEEM has the only validated audience rating tool in emergency medicine and to the best of my knowledge, the only known measure of clinical relevance. The SGEM consists of a weekly podcast available for free on iTunes and a blog. It is also tied into a Facebook page, active Twitter feed and YouTube Chanel. This is an SGEM Xtra. This week I will not be doing a structured critical review; instead I will be discussing two very exciting things happening with the SGEM. SGEM Season 2 Book:...

SMACC Chicago Cup Song

Posted by on Dec 17, 2014 in Conferences, Featured | 1 comment

The Social Medial and Critical Care (SMACC) conference came out of the Free Open Access to Medical Education (FOAMed) movement.  FOAM stands for free medical education for anyone, anywhere at anytime. It’s one objective is to make the world a better place. “FOAM should not be seen as a teaching philosophy or strategy, but rather as a globally accessible crowd-sourced educational adjunct. It provides inline (contextual) and offline (asynchronous) content to augment traditional educational principles.” There have been two hugely successful SMACC meetings in Australia.  This is in part because of the engaging, entertaining and inspiring speakers from around the world. It is also due to the fantastic community of doctors, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists and physician assistants passionate about emergency medicine and critical care. This year the organizers are bringing SMACC to Chicago June 23rd to 26th. Check out the registration brochure for all...
