Iain Beardsell (@docib) is one of LITFL’s very good friends in Blighty. For a few years now he has been hard at work developing the SEMEP (SEMEP — which you can follow on twitter: @semep).
One of the recent additions to the SEMEP website is a growing series of video lectures aimed at the intrepid SHO just starting out in the emergency department. Largely based on cardinal presenting complaints, these well produced and slickly presented videos are a great teaching resource for ‘asymmetric’ learning (i.e. learners can revisit topics over time). Also, I hate giving these broad overview talks as they don’t suit my own ADHD ” down the rabbit hole” style — so it’s great that I can direct RMOs to these well organised modules. Finally, the UK perspective sits pretty comfortably with the Antipodean way of doing things.
Here are the SEMEP Emergency Medicine SHO Induction Videos in alphabetical order (click on the links to reveal the relevant videos):
Assessing the Sick Patient
Minor Head Injury
Problems in Early Pregnancy
Shortness of Breath
Introduction to Toxicology
