In January of 2019, ALiEM was able to continue leveraging the power of social media by delivering high quality educational content to Instagram. We love your enthusiasm for our weekly #TrickoftheTradeTuesday posts and hope you check out our content if you haven’t visited yet. It has been inspiring to follow the many residency programs who have a presence on Instagram, and so we’ve come up with a way to try and help you disseminate all of your hard work. Read on to learn more about the ALiEM “Gram” Rounds!(more…)
For almost a decade, ALiEM has been on the forefront of digital education in emergency medicine. By leveraging the power of social media, we have been able to provide quality teaching pearls to our learners. Although we have helped to pioneer FOAMEd on Twitter and Facebook, you may have noticed our absence in your Instagram feed.
Today, we are excited to announce the launch of @aliemteam on Instagram. Alongside travel photos, puppy videos, and hilarious memes, look forward to bite-sized educational morsels and a behind-the-scenes look at ALiEM. We can’t wait to share with you some of our weekly features. Keep a look out for “Tricks of the Trade Tuesday”, “Flashback Friday”, and “Spotlight Sunday”.
Be sure to follow us @aliemteam, tag us with any of your own teaching pearls, and give us feedback!
The Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) collaborative has teamed up with the ALiEM and CanadiEM teams to introduce the official PECARN visual decision rule aid for pediatric blunt head trauma! This has been a 6 month collaboration focused on bringing evidence-based research to the bedside in pediatric emergency medicine (EM).
As we transition into the new academic year, rising senior residents and new attendings will face a difficult challenge: precepting a medical student or a new intern. Teaching in the Emergency Department is unique because it must be fast, efficient, and adaptable to the many different parts of our clinical practice. We are often trying to balance multiple patients in systems with numerous barriers, thus adding the responsibility of teaching can seem overwhelming.
