This book brings together the best of the journal club posts from the St Emlyn’s blog and podcast. Journal Clubs have been a focus of our work and research for many years, initially as a face to face entity, but in recent years more commonly online and through the use of #FOAMed and social media. The St Emlyn’s team keeps an eye out for any papers that might change our practice, make us think about our practice, challenge our research assumptions or which illustrate important aspects of critical appraisal. This year we bring together a range of papers that we believe to be relevant to all emergency physicians. We don’t pretend that these papers represent a comprehensive survey of the literature, merely an interesting and accessible sample of what is out there. What we hope is that the St Emlyn’s team, together with colleagues on other blogs can help build a picture of emerging and interesting literature that might make you a better clinician and researcher. In this combined effort we would like to highlight colleagues who hold similar views and invite you to visit and subscribe to their blogs. A nonexhaustive list is shown below (with our apologies if we have left you off the list).
