BoringEM is excited to announce the addition of two new authors! Please help to welcome them by following them on twitter and distributing their first posts.
Joel D’Eath is a Canadian paramedic that has previously been active in the world of FOAM through his twitter account @cmedik and website Post 88. He has committed to compiling the Canadian FOAM of the Week on an ongoing basis and writing some posts on Boring Pre-hospital EM. Check out his first post here: 005: Canadian FOAM of the Week.
Paul Olszynski is a Canadian emergency medicine physician that works with me in Saskatoon. His previous contributions to FOAM compromised primarily of the creation of an open-access ultrasound simulator with Paul Kulyk at edus2. He has been a teacher, preceptor and mentor to me over the past 4 years and I am regularly impressed by his commitment to lifelong learning. Presently, Paul is working to complete his Masters of Education degree and an Ultrasound traineeship while on a sabbatical in the United Kingdom. He will be contributing as a Guest Author over the next few months on topics related to education and ultrasound. Check out his first post here:
I’m happy to have you both on board!
While the pool of BoringEM authors is expanding, I am excited to report on the ongoing success of the pre-publication peer review initiative that I wrote about in A Commitment to Pre-publication Peer Review. Every post on BoringEM that includes medical content continues to be reviewed by either by another BoringEM author, a member of the USask FOAM Collaborative, or another author in the FOAM community. In this way, I hope that BoringEM will continue to develop and maintain a reputation for producing high-quality FOAM.
