Processing ProCESS: what does it mean for the small ED?
April 15, 2014
Gday. Welcome back. It has been a slow month on the blog as I recover from the wonderful exertions of the SMACC GOLD conference. After last week’s post on knowledge translation into the bush – this week I am jumping right in and aiming to translate some of the latest into your practice!
This is also the first podcast in a new series I have decided to call “Broome Pearls” – these are solo podcasts from myself on small topics, papers and stuff I find interesting – hope you do too! There will still be a mix of interviews and guests, a few “Lessons Hard Learned” and some video sessions. However, I think the solo stuff is easier for the short, micro-topics I get to thinking about most weeks.
Now this may seem a bit high-tech for the average small, rural ED – but you know the line from Dr Tim Leeuwenburg: “Critical Illness does not respect geography!” And this paper has some great lessons for us working in the bush. I think this paper brings world-class care to within our reach.
I am a GP working in Broome, NW of Western Australia. I work as a hospital DMO (District Med Officer) doing Emergency, Anaesthestics, some Obstetrics and a lot of miscellaneous primary care. Also on the web as @broomedocs | + Casey Parker | Contact
