Augusto Saldaña

My name is Augusto Saldaña and I’m a 35 year old Peruvian Family Physician from Peru, living and working in Spain. I work as an EM doc since in Spain there is no formal EM specialisation.

My primary motivations and enthusiasms are emergency medicine as primary care and patient physician communication (EBM that includes patient preferences, values and her or his max benefit). This is, I think, CORE to keep primary care and emergency medicine sustainable. Patients need information about what’s going on with them and they also need to be empowered. Increases treatment success, goal achieving, patient and also physician satisfaction.

I also enjoy painting and teaching, I used to be an English teacher back in the day.
