here is a taster of the power of #FOAMEd and what to expect at SMACC 2013 conference
Dr Haney Mallemat has been doing Google Hangout sessions , trying to navigate a plan to progress Free Open Access Medical education (#FOAMEd). He managed to get together a bunch of Down Under doctors yesterday for a hangout to discuss ED Critical care, areas of controversy and social medical networking for medical education. SMACC 2013 was discussed wth Chris Nickson from LITFL
Dr Matthew MacPartlin from INtensive Care network turned up and showed us his critical care brilliance and bass guitar.
But to me what the hangout showed so well was the power of #FOAMEd. This is what we intend with SMACC 2013. The ability to network and participate remotely, online and in asynchronous manner. The ability to socialise during your learning to enhance impact and retention. The fact Matt mentioned flow volume loops to guide titration of BiPAP in asthma is something I learnt yesterday and I will remember and research it more because he made me laugh and I respect his opinion in my network of learning.
