If you want to read about finger thoracostomies and ocular ultrasound you’re in the wrong place. BoringEM addresses the unsexy, common aspects of emergency medicine like palliative care, quality improvement, medical education and urine. If there is an EM topic you have no desire to learn, we will likely cover it. When we do, we’ll present it in the most engaging way possible using high-quality writing and the two great powers of the internet: Youtube and Google Images.
Secondary goals include increasing the recognition of open-access medical resources as legitimate forms of medical scholarship (USask FOAM Collaborative & SM-Index) and fostering the development of online Canadian content (Canadian FOAM of the Week & Canadian blogroll).
If these goals speak to you, consider contributing to BoringEM as an author.
