Welcome to the St Emlyn’s Podcast: A New Chapter in FOAMed

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the St Emlyn’s podcast, bringing fresh perspectives and insights from the world of emergency medicine. I’m Iain Beadsell, and alongside Simon Carley, we’re excited to extend our reach from the St Emlyn’s blog to your favorite podcast platforms.

Why a Podcast?

The landscape of medical education is evolving, and while there’s a plethora of excellent podcasts out there, there’s a notable gap in UK-centric content. Our aim is to fill that void, offering a unique blend of clinical discussions, evidence-based medicine, and practical management tips tailored for emergency physicians in the UK and beyond.

What is FOAMed?

For those new to the term, FOAMed stands for Free Open Access Medical Education. It’s a philosophy we deeply believe in—sharing knowledge, experiences, and lessons to improve patient care globally. FOAMed isn’t just about free resources; it’s about fostering a community where we can all learn from each other.

What Makes St Emlyn’s Podcast Unique?

While we draw inspiration from giants like EMCrit and Scott Weingart, our podcast will provide a distinct UK perspective. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Evidence-Based Medicine: We’ll dive deep into journal appraisals and discuss the latest research, making it relevant to our everyday clinical practice.
  2. Practical Clinical Tips: As practicing clinicians, we bring real-world experience from our busy emergency departments, tackling the challenges we all face.
  3. Management Insights: Working in high-intensity, high-risk environments, we’ll share strategies on managing departmental flow, dealing with access block, and improving patient outcomes.

Upcoming Episodes

Our first few episodes will focus on diagnosis—a cornerstone of emergency medicine. We’ll explore what makes diagnostic tests effective, how to interpret them, and why sometimes we just get lucky. Understanding these elements is crucial for any emergency physician aiming to excel in their field.

Join Our Journey

We’re not just podcasters; we’re part of a broader community of emergency medicine professionals. We’ll be featuring guests who are experts in their fields, sharing their insights and experiences. These aren’t just any guests; they’re some of the smartest and most renowned clinicians, who, unbeknownst to them, will soon be part of our podcasting journey.

A Regular Dose of Education

We plan to release episodes regularly, ensuring you have a steady stream of content to enhance your practice. Whether you’re commuting, walking the dog, or just relaxing, our podcast will be a valuable addition to your routine.
