Post your story

10 January 2019

We would like to hear about your experiences with emergency medical care.

By sharing all different stories, we want to increase the awareness of the importance of Emergency Medicine. We want to show people how broad is the working field of an emergency medical carer. From a rescue operation by helicopter on a mountain, to managing the ED after an earthquake, to helping somebody fallen from the stairs in their own home. In all these situations people deserve to get help quickly and competently. That is why it's so important to develop well organised emergency medical systems all around the world.

What is your story? Please share it here.

Refresher Course 11 - Resuscitation in the Emergency Department

18 December 2018

Critical care in the emergency department is a complex and evolving area of emergency medicine often overlooked within our national training systems. The lack of set competences and learning targets within EM national curriculums jeopardizes the training across Europe and EM residents face major difficulties in developing an effective awareness on their competence progression.

This is the background of the 11th Refresher Course, organised by:

Young Emergency Medicine Doctors and (YEMD) and

Coordinamento degli Specializzandi in Medicina d’Emergenza-Urgenza (CoSMEU)


To provide the Emergency Medicine trainees attending the course with theoretical and practical elements regarding the management of the critically ill patient in the ED.


Venue: Universitá Degli Studi di Firenze, Largo Brambilla 3 Florence, Italy

Course dates

24 -27  May 2019
