IFEM announces speaker bureau for behavioural emergency medicine

Behavioural Emergencies in the USA – Lessons for the IFEM Community

Since its birth the specialty of emergency medicine has not focussed as much  attention to developing expertise in behavioural emergencies when compared with developing expertise in trauma and critical care. Unfortunately this has resulted in inadequate behavioural emergency training in residency programs in the USA[1].

Mensaje del Presidente Noviembre de 2019

Profesor Jim Ducharme

Me han pedido que resuma los aspectos más destacados de IFEM de este año ya que nos acercamos al final del año. Lo hago con temor, ya que siempre tengo miedo de omitir los increíbles esfuerzos de alguien o un evento que muchos consideraron vital pero no lo hice muchas veces simplemente debido a mi punto de vista. 

IFEM activities at ACEP2019

A synopsis by Associate Professor Elizabeth Devos, American College of Emergency Physicians, Chair IFEM Specialty Implementation Committee

Many IFEM members attended ACEP19.  In fact, we were lucky to present 18 Global Leadership awards to bring faculty who are leaders in their countries and regions to Denver to participate in our international EM activities and the education sessions. 

Message from the President November 2019

Professor Jim Ducharme

I have been asked to summarize the highlights for IFEM this year as we near the end of the year. I do so with trepidation as I am always afraid I will miss someone’s amazing efforts or an event that many found critical but I did not, often simply due to perspective.
