It's that time of year again, where we get new colleagues in the Emergency Department (and across lots of other areas of the hospital too).
These are some of the top tips for new starters (and life in the ED in general) gathered from the senior medical and nursing team at Virchester (South).
More induction guidance and education available at http://stemlynsblog.org/induction/
Oh. And one tip we left out - always wear sunscreen.
With thanks (and apologies) to Baz Luhrmann.

In a new podcast format Simon (@EMManchester) and Iain (@docib) discuss the month's offerings from the St Emlyn's blog and podcast (www.stemlynsblog.org).
It's been a month full of interesting posts on subjects as diverse as Thrombolysis in Stroke (Alan Grayson), The Future of Emergency Medicine in the Social Age (Simon), Cardiac Arrest Centres (Simon), Love in Critical Care (Liz Crowe), Transfers (Nat and Simon), Thrombolysis in PE (a guest post from FOAMed legend Anand Swarminathan) and Benzos in Back Pain (Janos). Head to the website for the articles themselves and all the references and links you need.
We're aiminig to make this a regular monthly podcast - let us know if it's useful and enjoyable and how we could make it even more educational.

Iain and Simon discuss the core skills that all EM clinicians need to manage pain in the ED.
These are the basics, but don't be put off. The basics are more important than the fancy stuff that we will discuss in a later podcast.
