Special thanks go to my great mates Roger Harris and Oli Flower. When these guys first approached me to start brainstorming and working towards a FOAM-led critical care conference I had no idea that from those humble beginnings something truly amazing would grow.
I’m already excitedly putting ideas down for SMACC Chicago (May 24th to 26th, 2015for the conference proper with workshops on June 23rd 2015 — official hashtag and conference details to be announced) and look forward to working with my FOAM friends from around the world to make SMACC even better next year.
Fortunately, to tide us over until Chicago, all the talks from smaccGOLD will soon start being released on the SMACC podcast – with four incredible concurrents, even those that were there have plenty to catch up on!
Let us start with this video of the opening ceremony, where we see all the tribes of critical care come together once again:
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.
