https://emcage.net/ of course – check out the ‘Extra’ learning pages, look at somer of the blog posts and watch the ‘Videos’ .
RCEM Blog posts – https://www.rcemlearning.co.uk/rcem-induction/ Is a great resource to read through. Happy to get you log-in access if you like.
Read some FREE induction guides (similar to the resources above)
- Royal College Emergency Medicine induction books. Great 3 books series for you to explore.
Get yourself some great apps on your phone:
- Put in a link to our ED guidelines on your home screen (this does need a trust login). The Trust antibiotics guidelines are also very useful to have on your phone.
- BNF/BNFC – all drugs and doses – free app. The interactions checker is very useful.
- Toxbase – useful for quick checks but we often print out Toxbase for admitted patients and you’ll need to use the Department Login for this.
- MedCalc apps – work out your Grace score, PERC and much more
- BMJ Best practice app – new resource from our Library team
- Induction app – don’t wait for switchboard
