This week emergsource.com will launch it’s newest feature; our online journal club!
Many small and medium sized hospitals just don’t have enough members of the emergency department staff to keep up an active journal club. My hospital is no different, it’s just too hard to meet up every month, but we all still want to read and discuss recent articles. For the last year I’ve been running an online journal club through google groups with much success for my emergency group. This week the journal club moves from google groups onto the main emergsource.com website.
The journal club will offer an article a month for discussion. Anyone can participate and everyone’s opinion counts. I hope to cultivate a group with lots of different perspectives and hope that the conversation will drift as far as the group members would like.
For our American readers I’ve created a forum to discuss the required ABEM – LLSA articles. I’ve also created a forum for classic and foundational articles in emergency medicine.
Hopefully this is an experiment that will build into something useful and fun over time!
