Messages from the CICM ASM 2013

Oli and I were at the CICM's Annual Scientific Meeting in Wellington at the weekend, along with Marrianne Kirrane from the Brisbane ICN, Chris Nickson from Life In The Fast Lane and Todd Fraser from CritIQ. Both Oli and Chris gave talks at the meeting; Oli gave a SMACC-style presentation on neurocritical care iconoclasticism and Chris gave two talks, one on toxicology half-truths and the second on the role of FOAMed (he wants to move away from the term social media) in medical education and training. There were also a number of other online meducators present, including Doug Lynch (@TheTopEnd), David Anderson (@expensivecare), Jeremy Fernando (LITFL and ICN) and Colin Barnes (@barc00), with whom I had a chance to meet up and go for a coffee or a pint.

The theme of the conference was "Down with Dogma" and there were a mix of approaches and strategies to this as the schedule of topics was covered, spanning the full range of evidence and eminence base and of audience opinion.

What a SMACCing

The build up was unprecedented. The conference was novel. And the conversation continues.

Just in case you've had your head under a rock, I'm talking about SMACC 2013.

SMACC stands for Social Media and Critical Care and it is the title of a new kind of critical care conference that was held at the start of this week (March 11th - 12th), at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. It was an experiment that was born out of a collaborative effort between a group of emergency, intensive care and prehospital medicine practitioners as a way to delivier a novel conference experience.
