FOAMed continues to thrive in the digitally connected world. With numerous sites providing superb education at no cost, it can become difficult to stay current on all websites, podcasts, and e-mails. Dr. Withers will provide a summary of popular FOAM resources. With smartphones ubiquitous in society, medical applications abound but change so fast that it can be challenging to maintain awareness of the latest and greatest. As a Clinical Assistant Professor within the Department of Emergency Medicine at UBC, Dr. Withers has regular contact with learners (including military PAs) and will provide an overview of his favourite clinical applications.
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
1. Discuss the exciting world of FOAMed.
2. Identify a selection of FOAM resources considered useful for the majority of clinical PAs.
3. Identify and demonstrate smartphone applications that improve patient care or enhance patient safety.
