I’ve been recently toying with the idea of starting a blog that achieves a number of things:
1) Allows me to reflect upon and learn from my encounters in the Emergency Department (mistakes and achievements)
2) Allows others to benefit from the experiences I have had
3) Serves as a portal of communication between health care providers
4) Provide a Canadian slant to medical care/education
This website will (hopefully) be regularly updated with interesting cases I have managed in the ED (or cases seen by my colleagues). With the FOAMed (Free Open Access Meducation) revolution in effect, this will be my small drop in the bucket of knowledge that is beginning to overflow on the Internet. I stay connected with new/hot topics in emergency medicine almost exclusively through medical blogs and podcasts, and I hope I can finally give a little after all my receiving. I hope you enjoy.
