Welcome to the Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine – Meet ’em, greet ’em, treat ’em and street ’em.

My name is Ken Milne. The goal of the SGEM is to cut the knowledge translation window from 10 years down to 1 year. It does this by using social media to provide you with high quality, clinically relevant, critically appraised, evidence based information.

Much of the content is a result of the Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine (BEEM) process. The BEEM critical appraisal forms are available for FREE online (Make it So).

The SGEM is part of the Free Open Access to Meducation (FOAM) movement. FOAM – Medical education for anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Side effects of the SGEM include questioning everything you were taught, making top 5 lists, and a desire to sing music from the 1980’s.

So stop practicing medicine from 10 years ago and start practicing medicine based on the best evidence.

Don’t Panic, listen to the SGEM and remember:

Be skeptical of anything you learn, even if you heard it on the Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine.
