Here’s the next 6 uploaded to the SMACC website (see the first six here). For those of you with PKs in the works — don’t worry the deadline has been extended, but don’t dally too long or you’ll miss out on the chance of an iPad Mini and there could well be an UCEM Fellowship on the line too…
The first three (!) are from man-on-a-mission Tim Leeuwenberg F.UCEM, the medical McGyver from Kangaroo Island who brings a rural and remote perspective to critical care, which as we all know, has to happen everywhere.
Next Tim explores the challenges and opportunities of Trauma in Remote Australia and whether there is a role for ‘enthusiastic amateurs’:
In Recipes from Disaster, Tim talks about the big picture of Trauma on Kangaroo Island and an innovative approach to prevention that has been successfully implemented there:
Next up is a hard core critical care talk by critical care physician Rob Wise (hailing from South Africa if I’m not mistaken) titled ‘Stepping from the lab to the patient: Lessons on the glycocalyx’. Rob shows no lack on ambition in taking on a seemingly esoteric topic in the form of Prezi (which I usually hate… I didn’t vomit once!), yet he still hits it for six. Great stuff Rob!
Another man desperate for an iPad Mini is Utah’s resident Kiwi emergency physician Rob Bryant who comes up with an innovative and enlightening analogy for the emergency intubation in Rollercoasters & Intubations:
After finishing his medical degree at the University of Auckland, he continued post-graduate training in New Zealand as well as Australia’s Northern Territory, Perth and Melbourne. He has completed fellowship training in both intensive care medicine and emergency medicine, as well as post-graduate training in biochemistry, clinical toxicology, clinical epidemiology, and health professional education.
He is actively involved in in using translational simulation to improve patient care and the design of processes and systems at Alfred Health. He coordinates the Alfred ICU’s education and simulation programmes and runs the unit’s education website, INTENSIVE. He created the ‘Critically Ill Airway’ course and teaches on numerous courses around the world. He is one of the founders of the FOAM movement (Free Open-Access Medical education) and is co-creator of litfl.com, the RAGE podcast, the Resuscitology course, and the SMACC conference.
His one great achievement is being the father of two amazing children.
