We now have 4 new pages covering various sections of the Paediatric Acute Presentation Syllabus! This is all thanks to the super work of Isabel Vielba, who took great notes on the BRI paediatric training day and Becky Maxwell for editing and linking them to lots of FOAMed resources.

As always, comments and suggestions welcome

As always if you know a good FOAMed resource to link in then me know.


#severn2014…..The legend lives on!

So the legend of #severn2014 lives on, in the form of a blog on the Emergency Medicine Journal site.

We are delighted that quite a few of you are engaging on Twitter since the conference, this is exactly the outcome we were hoping for. We are looking forward to engaging even more with you all in the future.

If you were  not at the conference, or just want to listen again all the audio presentations can be found on this website (thank you Tom!)

We will be in touch over the next few days for ideas on developing this website further, so in the meantime have a think about what you would to see on here.

Social Media Workshop Wizardry

Andy Neill has kindly posted a breakdown of his workshop at the Severn Social Media Conference and it is filled with chocolatey FOAMed loveliness. In fact it is so good I’ve given it its own page on the website. If you want a reminder of all the hints and tips on how to get started and make the most of your time in the world of FOAMed and social media, they’re all there.

Combined with this are the links to Blogs and Podcasts you might find useful.
