What we do, in emergency medicine, on a daily basis is a privilege. In a world focused on money, and personal gain, we impact people’s lives every day. In that setting, our first focus should always be our patients, their safety, and their health. So often knowledge is prized as something to protect, use as leverage, or as something to sell. This site is built to share that knowledge freely. My hope is that it will allow us to move past the barriers of politics and market shares, and focus our efforts on making emergency departments safer and better.
