❧ Information shared on this podcast is provided to spark listener contemplation.  We offer learning points with each episode and will make our best efforts to ensure teaching is up to date at the time of recording, "correct" and in keeping with Evidence Based Medicine (EBM).  However, the listener must also understand that EBM has significant limitations, particularly in rural locations and patient populations that often have poor overlap with the usual academic urban facilities, resources and patient populations which are under study.  The listener is always encouraged to think critically, and consider the applicability of this podcast's advice and recommendations in the context of the listener's own practice environment.  

❧ Yes these bullets appear to be turnips.  Turnips are an excellent source of vitamin C, folate, phosphorus & calcium!  See? You're even learning something on this About-Podcast page! 

The Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM) Podcast

The SGEM tried to cut the knowledge translation gap from over ten years down to less than one year. It does this by using a podcast and blog critically appraising the recent literature. The ultimate goal of the SGEM is for patients to get the best care, based on the best evidence.

The Skeptic’s Guide to Emergency Medicine is a project in process. I am always trying to make it better. This means feedback is important and appreciated. If you have a comment, suggestion or advice on how I can make TheSGEM better please let me know.

Perhaps you have a show idea or paper you would like covered? Maybe you would like TheSGEM to highlight your Journal Club. Whatever your comments are just send me an email.
