About

NOTICE – This blog represents our opinions and should not be considered representative of views of emergency medicine in Ireland. The Irish Association for Emergency Medicine can be found here. The body representing trainees in Ireland is the The Irish Emergency Medicine Trainees Association and their site can be found here.

This site exists to hopefully foster education, reflection, enthusiasm, conversation and hopefully a sense of humour in emergency medicine in Ireland.

I’m the type of person who gets excited about the idea of a journal club (despite never being in one…)

I’ve done most of my training so far (I’ve still a fair bit left to do…) in Northern Ireland and New Zealand and spent 2 yrs on a clinical hiatus teaching anatomy (though mainly it was me learning…) in Dublin. It gave me enough time to keep this site updated. I’ve been back in the ED since July 2012.

Inspiration comes from previous patients and colleagues and a lot of the stuff I found on the internet mentioned here. I seem to find myself in frequent agreement with things Jerry Hoffman and David Newman say. And I’ll try to throw in occasional bits and bobs that aren’t just re-posts of things I found on LITFL

If you’re interested I also blog on life, books, theology and canoeing over at NellyAndI and have some music at End Any Ill

Thanks for visiting.
