Hopefully you’ve held the 12th May in anticipation of the 2nd #stemylnsLIVE conference. We are back in Manchester in the stunning Compass room at the Lowry centre to learn, share and inspire each other to be better clinicians.
We have now agreed a provisional program with some amazing speakers committed to joining us in Manchester. This year we are delighted to be joined by our friends from Sydney HEMS to deliver a truly international conference.
Once again we are building our conference around the 4-pillars of St Emlyn’s: Evidence, Clinical Excellence, Philosophy and Well-being, with a particular focus on clinical excellence in the plenary sessions.
Our ambition is that everyone will learn something that will change their practice. We want this to be a conference that enables and supports you to improve patient care and clinician support. These are our main themes.
- Next level diagnostics. Bringing the academic arm of St Emlyn’s into the mainstream of practice.
- Leading the resus room.
- The skills and excellence marketplace (see below).
- Lessons learned from tough cases and difficult scenarios.
The St Emlyn’s team will be there in full force, but this year we are delighted to have Cliff Reid, Brian Burns, Clare Richmond and Natalie May from Sydney HEMS. We are incredibly lucky to have them join us as they are all fabulous clinicians and educators.
Clare is an Emergency Physician and specialist in Pre-Hospital Care and Retrieval medicine based in Sydney, with Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Sydney HEMS. She has completed a fellowship in simulation based education, and enjoys training with “real” people – patients, bystanders and the other clinicians we come across as we treat our patients every day. She is a lecturer with the University of Sydney, and is involved in education for the NSW Institute for Trauma Injury Management. When Clare is not working on helicopters or training teams, she is studying yoga or hanging out with her puppy, Archie. Twitter: @drbear13
Natalie May will be familiar to many of you as a mainstay of the St Emlyn’s team. Natalie returns to where she completed emergency medicine and paediatric emergency medicine training in Manchester from Sydney. She now works in the skies above New South Wales in paediatric and adult retrieval medicine combined with her work in emergency medicine. With her international experience she is ideally placed to understand how we can pursue excellence in emergency medicine, critical care, paediatrics and medical education Twitter: @_nmay
Brian is an emergency physician, prehospital and retrieval specialist. Research lead with Sydney HEMS. Proud Dubliner who moved to Sydney and stayed on. Passionate about Big Sick, resuscitation, trauma and Irish rugby. On too many committees. A/Professor Emergency Medicine, Sydney University, Australia. Hon. Senior Lecturer, QMUL, London, UK. Amateur blogger and podcaster. Motto: Detestor ego mediocritatem. Twitter: @HawkmoonHEMS
Cliff is a Senior Staff Specialist in Emergency Medicine in Sydney, Australia. He worked as a specialist in intensive care medicine and emergency medicine in the United Kingdom before his wife forced him, kicking & screaming, to move Down Under to enjoy beautiful sunshine, beaches, and creatures that are determined to kill you. Cliff is passionate about getting resuscitation right regardless of age or location, which is why he has taking training posts in prehospital care, retrieval medicine, and neonatal & paediatric critical care in addition to his emergency and intensive care training. He has a special interest in the non-technical skills that facilitate effective resuscitation: control of the environment, of oneself, and of the team. He believes that the best resuscitation teams understand that they need to take care of themselves and each other first in order to work sustainably for the benefit of their patients, and insists that we share a responsibility to build a compassionate and supportive culture wherever we work.

We are finalising the program right now so check back for details very soon. What we do know is that we are going to build on the success of our 2018 conference by focusing on those issues that cause difficulty, dilemma and deterioration in the resus room. We are also going to expand the marketplace concept. The marketplace is where we get all faculty to set up ‘stalls’ in a shared space to highlight their expertise, micro skills and wisdom. Delegates can choose their own adventure through the stalls, selecting and moving between those stalls that interest them. We covered topics as broad as advanced airway techniques through to GUM issues in ED and testicular emergencies! It’s a really fun and interactive session that will form a core component of the day.
You really don’t want to miss this conference and space is limited so book your tickets today.
Costs are £180 for consultants, £145 for Trainees/AHPs/Paramedics/Nurses, £80 for undergraduate students/concessions. If you think that you qualify for a concession rate please get in touch directly (e.g. parental leave with no study leave budget).
The St Emlyn’s team
Who should come? Basically everyone. We believe that the content will speak to everyone involved in emergency and acute care irrespective of which speciality of profession you are in. We really want a diverse and inclusive audience who can help us co-create the final content. Don’t just come to listen, come to learn, share, discuss, debate and create with us. We really want to hear from as many voices as we can.
Costs? We’ve tried to keep costs down to maximise the opportunity to attend. Top price is £180 for consultants, but much less for trainees, nurses, paramedics and students.
What about Resuscitology the following day? Sure. If you want to come to #stemlynsLIVE and then follow that with the Resuscitology course that’s fantastic. You can learn more about, and can book the Resuscitology course here.
Do you want people to tell others about the conference? Oh yes please. We really need your help in getting the message out. We really want the conference to be a success beyond Manchester and so really want you to help spread the word. You can download a poster to print out and put up locally below (pretty please).
What’s the ethos of the conference? We think that working in acute and emergency medicine is both a challenge and a privilige. We want to celebrate the work that we do and to foster a community that recognises how important our contribution is to our patients and the services we work in and for. St Emlyn’s is our way of championing our work through a constant cycle of questions, evidence, opinion and discussion. This conference is our opportunity to step out from the world of social media and hopefully engage our friends in a meaningfully way with like minded clinicians just like you.
Staying in Manchester. It’s a fabulous city full of innovation, fun and a little bit of swagger. Accomodation is plentiful and ranges from the cheap to the crazy. If you are struggling to finance or find then get in touch and we will see what we can do to help.
