ep180 TotalEM

TOTAL EM is a project devoted to increasing emergency medicine knowledge both to providers and the public.  As demonstrated by previous studies, it can take too long for information to reach the bedside.  The Leaky Pipe model has been suggested as reasons why this happens.

They want to do their part to help shorten the period of time it takes for important medical knowledge in emergency medicine to reach the provider and the patient.  They also want to help educate people across the world in how emergency medicine is an important and lifesaving profession.

Their goal is to provide regularly updated information through the method of FOAMED or Free and Open Access to Medical EDucation.  The plan is to do this with blogs and podcasts.  With your help, they plan to accomplish just that. TOTAL EM is an educational website.  It stands for “Tools Of the Trade and Academic Learning in Emergency Medicine.”  The main focus is to provide training to all of those in emergency medicine, especially those practicing in a rural or remote setting and those who are PAs (but we also love our NP and physician colleagues).

They believe in the importance of education.  Thier website is divided into three main sections.  One is devoted to medical professionals and the information offered directly by the TOTAL EM project.  A second section is devoted to layperson education in emergency medicine which covers most basic topics.  The final section is our access to multiple projects that we support and use frequently.
