Over the past few months I’ve been working on two podcasts, SGEM-HOP and CAEPCAST.
The first Canadian edition of the SGEM-HOP podcast (Skeptics Guide to Emergency Medicine-Hot off the Press) was recently released. Working with Ken Milne of The SGEM, Hot off the Press critically appraises an article from the Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine (CJEM) the same week as the article is released in print form. Furthermore, the primary author of the article reviewed joins the SGEM-HOP interview team; this allows for a more thorough discussion of the paper than critical appraisal alone.
The first edition featured Brandon Ritcey, a University of Ottawa PGY-5 resident, the lead author of a systematic review of femoral nerve blocks for femur fracture in the ED. To listen to the podcast, check out The SGEM here, or the iTunes store. The original article is available here.
CAEPCAST is the official podcast of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP). It highlights featured education innovations (FEIs) from EM residency programs across Canada. Each month we visit a different EM program and interview one of their FEI leaders. Thus far we have spoken with Dr. Bryan Chung about the MERIT (Medical Education for Residents in Training) program at UBC and Dr. Stuart Rose about the Staff Simulation program at the University of Calgary.
Here is a link to the FEI page where you can listen to both shows. The most recent episode from Sherbrooke University was just released, with Julien Poitras interviewing Isabelle Ouellet about giving presentations to peers.
