Lessons from a South African ED. Kat Evans at #stemlynsLIVE

Last year we were honoured to bring Kat Evans to Manchester to talk at the #stemlynsLIVE conference. We’ve covered emergency medicine in South Africa before on the blog1–9, but there is no substitute to hearing about it from someone who actually works there. I’d strongly recommend that you visit the badEM site to see more about what Kat and the badEM team get up to.
