BLOGS, PODCASTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA
Podcasts are a great way to kill time when you're at the gym, riding your bike, going for a run or even to break up your commute. Here a few that are highly recommended by the FOMed community
Blogs and Podcasts
There are so many out there in the wide world. The Rogue Medic took to twitter to ask those in the FOAMed (Free Open Access Medicine) community which ones were best suited for the prehospital care environment:
PHARM (http://prehospitalmed.com/) - run by Dr Minh Le Cong (RFDS Cairns). Probably the most well known Australian Blogger and Podcast maker, you can also follow him on twitter (https://twitter.com/ketaminh?lang=en)
Auckland HEMS (http://aucklandhems.com/) - run by the guys and gals behind the Auckland HEMS.
Careflight Collective (http://careflightcollective.com/) - a collective blog from the team at Careflight.
Rollcage Medic (http://rollcagemedic.com/) - run by Dr Matthew Mac Parlin, who is currently a senior motor sport doctor.
Ambo FOAM (https://ambofoam.wordpress.com/) - run by an IC paramedic, good stuff, he provides a lot of links to other FOAMed blogs.
EMCrit (http://emcrit.org/) - run by Dr Stuart Weingart, a leader in the FOAMed Community and internationally known EM Doctor.
Life in the the Fast Lane (http://lifeinthefastlane.com/) - LITFL is a medical blog and website dedicated to providing free online emergency medicine and critical care insights and education. The team behind it consists (mostly) of emergency physicians and intensivists based in Australia and New Zealand.
