Welcome to FOAMShED a site aimed at all HCPs working in the wonderful world of Emergency Medicine.
My aim is to create a site that gives you access to Free Open Access Med-Ed on the go, before your late shift, after your night shift or if you just can’t make a face to face session but you don’t want to miss out. All with a Sheffield Flavour.
You can expect to hear from me, Chris Connolly (@chrisconnolly83) – I’m a consultant in Emergency Medicine in Sheffield UK with an interest in Med-Ed in its many forms especially simulation and Evidence Based Medicine along with some of my colleagues from God’s own county of Yorkshire.
There’ll be a regular monthly Journal Club podcast, alongside which will run a bi-monthly blog post and ‘One Minute Wonder’.
I hope to cover multiple aspects of EM rather just focusing on the guns and glory in the resus room (though there’ll be plenty of that too!).
If there are any topics you’d like covering then please let me know via the website, twitter ( or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any general feedback on the site or content then again please do get in touch as above.
I hope the site stimulates you to read more, think more, practice more. I am a firm believer that deliberate practice and reflection make us better clinicians which in turn makes better outcomes for our patients.
Keep fighting the good fight
Speak to you soon
