    Kids and COVID: the PERN study

    Kids and COVID: the PERN study

    It’s time for another COVID-19 update! This time from PERN, the international Pediatric Emergency Research Network. Dr. Nate Kuppermann joins us to talk about a recently published study on kids with COVID. This multinational, prospective study looked at a large cohort of children who presented to EDs with COVID concerns. We discuss the findings, which kids we can feel good about discharging, and which ones might benefit from admission. Julia and Sarah also share their own personal experiences with COVID.



    We hope you’re staying healthy through this omicron surge! Send us your questions about kids and COVID on social media, @empulsepodcast, on email empulsepodcast@gmail.com, or through our website, ucdavisem.com.



    We’re working on an episode on what it’s like to be a woman in emergency medicine. Want to share your story? Contact us as above, or leave your story on a voicemail at 951-251-4804.

    2021: Looking back and moving forward

    Happy New Year! Well, 2021 may not have been quite the year we hoped for, and 2022 is off to a bit of a rough start with the omicron variant.  But we’ve been fortunate to have some amazing guests on the podcast and we’ve learned a lot - we hope you have, too! In this episode, we follow up with experts from some of the episodes that really stuck with us. We get updates on COVID vaccinations for kids, vaccine mandates, long haul COVID, and trauma informed care. Wishing you all good health in the new year, and cheers to another year of EM Pulse!

    Changemakers

    Changemakers

    As Emergency Physicians, we are well equipped to deal with patients’ acute medical needs, but we often find ourselves without the knowledge or time to deal with many of our patients’ other needs. For social, financial, mental health, and substance use disorders, we lean heavily on other members of our ED team. In this episode, we explore one of the newer roles in this team, the ED Substance Abuse Navigator (SUN). A former patient shares her story of what’s it’s like to be in the ED seeking help with substance use, and Dr. Aimee Moulin talks about her efforts in collaboration with CA Bridge to expand the role of SUNs throughout California. Finally, we talk with two of our UC Davis SUNs, Sandra Overby and Jolie Reyna, who take us through what it’s like to be an ED SUN and how they have been able to help connect many patients with much needed treatment resources. 



    Do you have a SUN in your ED?  Share your experience with us on social media, @empulsepodcast, or through our website, ucdavisem.com.

    Workforce

    Workforce

    If you’re an emergency physician, or have goals of becoming one, you have probably heard about ACEP’s workforce study. The findings first came out in April 2021, and were followed by a full paper in Annals of Emergency Medicine in August. The bottom line is that there is a predicted surplus of EM physicians of over 7,800 by 2030. How did we find ourselves here? What does this mean? And what should we do about it? We reached out to Emergency Physician and ACEP President Elect, Dr. Gillian Schmitz, to learn more. 



    What was your reaction to the workforce report? What do you think is the path forward for our specialty? Connect with us on social media, @empulsepodcast, or through our website, ucdavisem.com.
