Group Interview with Cliff Reid, BM, FACEM, Lillian Emlet, MD, FACEP, and John C. Greenwood, MD
Moderator: Joseph E. Tonna, MD
(liberally edited for content and clarity)
Joe: So what format in social media is the best for dissemination of ideas? We have Twitter, Blogs and Podcasts and there are a lot of different formats and they all seem to have various niche uses…What is the most durable and predominant format going forward in SoMe for EM/CCM? Also, what about the decline of Twitter?
Cliff: I think it is impossible to predict, just as the situation we’re in now wasn’t predicted by anyone, we probably can’t predict the directions that the different forms of social media are going to go in. I can’t see Twitter dying. Certainly not in my Twitter peer group in the way that we use it for education. Blogs, Twitter and Podcasts each fulfill a different role and each are convenient in different environments.
The EM section enjoyed a successful 2016 Congress in Orlando, Florida on multiple different fronts. We sponsored the first annual “Year in Review: Emergency Medicine” congress session with speakers Scott Weingart and Cliff Reid filling the room to capacity (even with the interruption of the fire alarm). Our inaugural Emergency Medicine SCCM Council representative was announced as Kyle Gunnerson, MD. Heatherlee Bailey, MD was elected to SCCM Council Secretary (placing her on the president-elect tract for 2019 Congress.... correct, the President of SCCM in 2019 will be an EM/CCM colleague). Julie Mayglothling, MD, FACEP was elected to the Board of Regents for the American College of Critical Care Medicine (ACCM).Read More »
