FOAMed is the movement that has spontaneously emerged from the exploding collection of constantly evolving, collaborative and interactive open access medical education resources being distributed on the web with one objective — to make the world a better place. FOAM is independent of platform or media — it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, Google hangouts, online videos, text documents, photographs, facebook groups, and a whole lot more.
The extraordinary medical blog lifeinthefastlane.com give a great overview of FOAMed and provides links to an incredible number of resources. In future posts we will walk through how to find, use and create FOAMed resources to stay on the cutting edge of critical care.
Here are a couple of videos from Life in the Fast Lane founders Mike Cadgoan and Chris Nickson to give you an introduction to the concept and scope of FOAMed.
