WRaP EM is a group of ordinary but passionate clinicians and medical educators who want to promote the concepts of Wellness, Resilience and Performance, from being considered “the soft stuff” to becoming a core part of Emergency Medicine practice. We aim to provide a thought provoking forum for idea sharing and creativity, focused on the development and wellbeing of healthcare professionals. WRaP EM is creating an expanding Free Open Access Medical Education (FOAMEd) curriculum and blog to help achieve these goals. We also want to facilitate tangible cultural growth in all of our work spaces through connection with other like-minded clinicians. WRaP EM hopes to continue to evolve as we explore the above ideas according to our individual and collective interest and enthusiasm.
Though the words Emergency Medicine (EM) is in our name, we hope that we can reach beyond the Emergency Department to meet and collaborate with other clinicians, whether they work in O+G or Palliative Care, General Surgical or Endocrinology.
We also hope that our message is at least partly transferrable to all clinicians: medical, nursing and allied health, and even perhaps at times our non-clinical colleagues.
