The Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM) is part of the Free Open Access to Meducation movement (FOAMed). The SGEM tries to cut the knowledge translation window down from over ten years to less than one year with the power of social media. The ultimate goal is for patients to get the best care based on the best evidence.
The FOAMed philosophy is that the information should be available to anyone, anytime, anywhere at no cost. The SGEM has been free since it started in 2012 and always will be free open access.
Many of you have asked about getting continuing medical education credits for listening to the SGEM podcast and reading the SGEM blog. We know physicians (MD and DO), Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) have to collect so many continuing professional development (CPD) credit hours for their respective organizations. This can be more challenging with the cancelation of in-person conferences and meetings.
