Podcast#22(Part2): “Africa, where to now?”

Photo: ©2013 ER24Wrapping up my conversation in the “Emergency Medicine in Africa” series of podcasts I’m left with some positive feeling and confidence that the African paramedic and physician are on a long and winding road to improving emergency health care on the continent. But at the same time I’m left asking a lot of questions. In this episode I wonder if #FOAM, Free Open Access Medical education is penetrating deepest, darkest Africa and how can we help improve on how it is delivered. Can we get Africa onto the same research and educational platforms the rest of the world is standing on. Is the access to #FOAMed material on the African continent really free and available to all? This podcast series was put out in support of the “Adopt a Delegate” programme being run in conjunction with the 2013 Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa’s Trauma conference being held in Cape Town. In order to sponsor a Paramedic or PHEM provider in getting to the conference have a look at the EMSSA Conference site to support.
