This is an SGEM Xtra summer content episode. But don’t panic we will be back later this month to launch Season # 5 of the SGEM…better, stronger, faster than it was before – cutting that knowledge translation window down from over ten years to less than one year using the power of social media.

In this episode I ask Kirsty five questions about infographics and five questions about her Paper In A Pic (#PaperinaPic) knowledge translation project. Listen to the podcast to hear her responses. You can check out her SGEM infographics by clicking on #PaperinaPic.

I hope everyone enjoys the last few days of summer and we will be back soon with Season#5 of the SGEM. It will include an exciting new feature for SGEMHOP from AEM.

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