Guess or Gestalt in Major Trauma at St.Emlyn’s

St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

I was recently fortunate enough to speak at the the Emergency Medicine Educators Conference in Coventry on a subject that continues to interest me, that of gestalt, judgement and clinical decision making. As I get older I increasingly realise that simply acquiring more knowledge and skills is not enough. What’s really important is how we […]

The SWEETest Sim – Real People, High Fidelity at #SWEETs15

St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

  In March 2015 I invited myself to the Swedish Emergency Medicine conference SWEETs in Stockholm.

Obviously I’m biased, but I found the paediatric stream particularly engaging and I was lucky enough to be able to grab some post-talk discussion time with Ross Fisher, friend of St Emlyns and Consultant Paediatric Surgeon at […]

Trauma: An Elite Sport? Tom Evens at the London Trauma Conference 2014

St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

At the London Trauma Conference back in December 2014 I caught up with Dr Tom Evens – Tom is […]

New kids on the block. 2015 APLS trauma updates.

St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

The Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) is, in my opinion at least, a great course. Covering paediatric life support, serious illness and injury it’s got a good reputation and is led by a team of clinicians who have always tried to the best for children. The course has the ‘right stuff’ for paeds resuscitationists… or […]
