Welcome back to the roughly monthly Journal Club with Dr Justin Morgenstern of First10EM fame.
This month we have a special edition for you – we invited 6 of our favourite EBM FOAMed folks to join us live in Berlin at DasSMACC. We recorded the following podcast in the hotel lobby bar over a few pints of Germany’s finest ale. This was a really fun session – we asked each participant to bring along a paper for discussion and we all chipped in to the chatter. The voices you will hear are:-
Dr Andy Neill – the fast-talking Irishman, who kindly recorded the whole deal. You can hear more form him at the RCEM podcast.
Dr Michelle Johnson (Aussie accent) of LITFL fame, bringing her usually written excellence to the spoken word.
Dr Pik Mukherji – the super sensible (even cynical?) NewYorker
Dr Connie Smith – one of my Aussie / Broome Residents with a penchant for all things ophthalmology
Dr Ben Smith (US of the Week) – the Tennessee-based POCUS guru and super nice guy.
And me, of course
OK, that is the cast of characters. Now onto the podcast. WARNING- it is a long one. I would suggest breaking it into a few sections if you prefer.
As always the written summary is available over at First10EM and the whole PDFs for free on the hyperlinks below. So listen, read, learn and share – this is the essence of FOAMed and the reason we all came along to Berlin to share in the celebration that is SMACC.
