LPA 8 wervelkolom immobilisatie – wat is de evidence?

9 Dec

Dear international colleagues, this PPP is written in Dutch by our registrar in training, Mark van Zanten, so you will not be able to read this.

It’s an overview of the evidence that’s used to change the prehospital guideline for (C-)spine immobilisation.

Voor de Nederlandse collega’s: wellicht dat jullie dit kunnen gebruiken om locaal alert te zijn bij de overname van een trauma-patient en zelf te besluiten of mn CWK immobilisatie (alsnog) geindiceerd is en hoe.

Regards / groet, Laura

Working in Australia

3 Nov

Dear colleagues,

Currently I am registering at the Australian Medical Council (AMC) to be able to apply for the EM training in Australia.

Two of our Dutch colleagues already are FACEM, they enrolled in the training program about 10 years ago. The rules have changed quite a lot since then, and nowadays it is not easy to become eligible anymore.

Many others have worked or are currently working in Australia for 1-2 years, with a limited registration. That registration does not allow you to apply at the ACEM (for training).

Because of the recent changes and because I could not find a colleague who did the same, I decided to share my experiences with you. For colleagues who wish to do the same.

I will write different posts about the application process. If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact me using the contact form. If you have different experiences or you want to share yours on this website, please feel free to contact me also. My situation is about becoming an registrar in training, from my current position as SEHarts KNMG. I do not have knowledge about other pathways, for example te be eligible for the limited registration. I would welcome colleagues who want to share that information.

Regards, Laura

In Dutch: a local guideline anafylactic reactions

14 Apr

Hi all,

Attached the local guideline anaphylactic reactions in Dutch from Elisabeth hospital, Tilburg, with thanks to Pieter van Driel.

A while ago some of us had an email discussion about treatment, especially the role of epinephrine, and when to administer it.

Would you mind sharing your local protocols with us on this website? Please contact us by mail, see homepage.

Cheers, Laura
