In the April podcast of EMRAP: Educator’s Edition, among many other things, Rob Rogers and Michelle Lin talked about how medical students often struggle to orally present cases the ‘emergency medicine way‘.
I remember struggling as a student to focus on what was relevant and stick to the important positives and negatives without droning on for ever (still do!). More recently a few students have asked me, “How should I present a patient in ED?”. Well, now I have a gold standard answer for them.
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.
