Scottish EM Clinical Conference 2017

*SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE AN ORAL PRESENTATION OR POSTER, SEE BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS*

The ED can sometimes feel like the twilight zone, a hinterland where the casualties of society with intractable problems, that no-one else can solve, wash up for you to deal with. Everyone can feel isolated in this environment and may even question the difference they make. 

This day aims to change the way you think about this and celebrate the good work you do. It will also provide some examples of how others can help to make a difference to your patients that you might have not thought possible.
