Broome Docs in the Fast Lane

Apologies to the regular readers (and the slightly odd ones too!).  It has been a slow week for updates at Broome Docs as I have been in the big smoke (Perth) doing a bit of a refresher in all things Crit Care in SCGH – and catching up with the Life In the Fast Lane crew at the same time.  It has been a discovery tour where I have had the chance to practice a few skills, ask a lot of difficult (?stupid) questions and learn a thing or two about what it is we do!

Met Dr Mike Cadogan (@sandnsurf) today and I can say it was a “blog changing” experience!   I recorded a chat with Mike for his upcoming podcast and learned stuff about blogging, education, life etc that I didn’t know I didn’t know!  Left Mike’s office with the feeling I was thinking in slow-motion!  I hope to be making my own contribution to his upcoming iMeducate program, providing cases / fodder in this intriguing project which will change the way we access our education and learning at all levels.

If you want to hear me going on about the whole interweb thingy with the master then click here for the 9 minutes of CITFL chat we recorded in his tiny, but very busy office

Anyway – I’ll be back in sunny Broome next week and hope to bring you a whole heap of new stuff, cases and evidence that I have garnered over the last week!




  1. Good on ya’ Casey, both for upskilling in the Smoke and also for bringing accessible and interesting medical education relevant to us rural docs via the powers of the Interweb

    Just don’t change the format too much…some of us struggle with FaceBook and Twatter

  2. Casey Parker says

    Don’t worry Tim – the format isn’t changing – mainly some technical coding / back door changes that you won’t really notice – but will make the site a bit more user friendly and searchable..
    I am like you – I know what I need to know (that is why we are GPs eh?)… but Mike Cadogan is another species of human – he thinks differently and has some great understanding of how all this palava works. So I trust him to steer Broome Docs in the right direction – 5,ooo,ooo hits can;t be wrong!

  3. I was excited to hear about the iMeducate program – correct me if I’m wrong though… it’s just a question bank? There are already plenty of those out in the wild, I was hoping they had built up scenarios, etc. that provided more “real world” learning – a.k.a. thinking through cases and ddx’s from start to finish, as you’ve posted on this blog before.

    Anyway, keep up the good work, love the blog!
