The Royal college of emergency medicine is having its annual conference starting tomorrow. It’s being organised by RIck Body and all the folk better known as st emlyns

The line up looks amazing and the conference is actually sold out. 

As part of the rcemfoamed network I’ll be one of a group creating a daily  podcast and blog summary of the conference. Be sure to get the feed to follow us

Hashtag is #RCEM15

If you’re at the conference please come along and say hi. 

Getting started with FOAMed

Just a little note to state that I have collated a few resources for those looking to get started with both consuming and creating FOAMed. There’s a little link at the top right of the page.

I also recorded some talks recently for the RCEM FOAMed network on creating podcast type material. Hopefully they’re of some use:

01 – recording a solo podcast

Scott Weingart on getting started in FOAMed

Andy Neill’s Social Media Workshop


02 – recording a skype interview

03 – recording a screencast

Medical Complications of Pregnancy

This is a talk I gave recently for our registrar teaching morning. Not the sexiest presentation (forgive the bullets) but hopefully will give you the basic, textbook level info a al foamcast style

SMACC Gold Neuroanatomy Talk

Back in March 2014 I had the pleasure of speaking at SMACC Gold in Australia. The whole thing was great fun and I’m sure you’re all aware it’s going to Chicago in May 2015 so be sure to be there. Indeed Registration opens tonight (in the UK at least) so check it out!!!

Every talk from the conference is coming out via the SMACC podcast so make sure you subscribe.

As my talk is so predominantly visual, it really needs the slides for it to make sense so I’ve included the slideset here and put the audio over the slides so you can get the feel of the talk.

For people interested in learning some more detailed neuroanatomy I’d strongly recommend headneckbrainspine.com

They’ve done what I’ve always wanted to do and have created scrolling, labelled radiology images that wonderfully demonstrate the anatomy in 3 dimensions. Really invaluable stuff.

Here’s a list of previous neuro related podcasts I’ve done:

And if you’re interested in working where I work as an ultrasound or education fellow then get in touch.

SMACC Chicago Programme now available!

If you’ve found your way to this blog at all then I’m sure you’ve heard of SMACC.

The programme for the next conference in Chicago 23-26th June 2015 has just been released. Be sure and check out the programme to get an idea of the quality experience you can expect. It’s great to see some names whose papers I’ve been reading for years but don’t exist on social media such as Paul Marik and Mervyn Singer. Also great to see one of the longest standing names in FOAMed, Mark Crislip making a couple of appearances.

A nice list of reflections from last year (ripped from Tim’s site)
