The SGEM is a knowledge translation (KT) project with a goal of cutting the KT windows down from over ten years to less than one year. During the summer months SGEMers will receive extra content. These are part of the SGEM Xtra series. The standard high quality, clinically relevant, evidence based, critical reviews of the recent literature will returning in the fall.
The Canadian Association of Emergency Physician (CAEP) meeting was held in Edmonton earlier this year. The theme of he conference was Lighting the Way. There was a Free Open Access to Medical Education (FOAMed) track with four amazing speakers.
Alia Dharamsi (@alia_dh): Alia Dharamsi is an R2 in Emergency Medicine at the University of Toronto. Her academic interests are diverse, but include education, online educational technologies, and simulation. While she spends most of her time in the hospital, she likes spending her free time exploring the food, fun, and fitness opportunities that the big city offers!
Social Media is quickly gathering momentum in the realm of Emergency Medicine. With a new generation of ED docs so adept at using social media (Twitter, podcasts, blogs), how can we equip ED docs and trainees to effectively teach online?
Recently, a pilot digital scholarship project was initiated in which a resident can apply curriculum development theory to practice by creating their own online, digital curriculum. Using this as a model, we will discuss how ED docs and trainees can become proficient at knowledge translation online.
Please take a few seconds to like the SGEM on Facebook and follow on Twitter. If you could also take a couple of minutes to give the SGEM a rating on iTunes. Any feedback would be appreciated as I plan out Season#4 over the summer months (TheSGEM@gmail.com).
