Welcome to the Calgary Emergency Medicine Journal Club page!
The University of Calgary FRCPC and CCFP-EM residents hold a joint journal club each month. These provide an excellent forum for discussion of one or more journal articles. Unfortunately, not all of the residents can make it every month, so this page will provide an opportunity to view the discussion and conclusions of each month’s JC. In addition, it provides another FOAM resource for others across the globe.
Some months the article has already been critically appraised and podcast on by Ken Milne over at The Skeptics Guide to Emergency Medicine (The SGEM), and a link to his critical appraisal is posted in place of a new review. The SGEM is approved by the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) as an online CME activity, and I highly recommend it.
