Dr. Michael Woo and Dr. Gaby Blecher
Another update from Down Under...I had the opportunity to spend the day with Dr. Gaby Blecher and the Emergency Registrars at Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne, Australia. It was wonderful to catch up with Dr. Blecher who did a research fellowship at UOttawa with Dr. Stiell and completed his thesis on Point-of-care ultrasonography for DVTs in ED patients. He is now incorporating PoCUS as part of clinical care for EPs at Monash Medical Centre. I was able to present the role of PoCUS in patients presenting with shortness of breath and take part in their journal club. Taking part in their POCUS meeting was enlightening as they have advanced their QA system and have strong collaborations with Radiology. This was an enthusiastic group with lots of ideas. Looking forward to sharing these ideas with you all and developing future collaborations. (Oh yeah, I have enjoyed the surf, sun, and food as well! :)
