"After moving from the North of Scotland two years ago, I've worked between an emergency department and critical care in central London. Nursing on the frontline in a capital city can present it's own unique issues, but I truly believe that we canall find ourselves facing challenges derived from our health systems, patients or upon reflection internally.
I often find myself uncomfortable when adorned with the title of "Saint" or "Angel"; I do feel that this is my vocation, but I hardly float around my ICU with a halo in situ! As nurses we are incremental to the holistic patient experience and often responsible for interventions that will drastically improve outcomes - I shall always remain proud of that." Connor Bond

This podcast was recorded live at a Metro North Hospital and Health Service Research Principles series. I was invited to speak on Using Social Media to Share Research Outcomes. As part of the session I invited Dr Erik Wood, Staff Specialist in Emergency Medicine at Redcliffe hospital to have a chat about his first clinical trial as PI. The recording was intentional left raw with minimal editing as the intent was to show how easy it is to use podcast as a medium to share your research.

It's been a long time between episodes. This return coincides with a refreshed and revised vision for Injectable Orange. Backed by a great, new editorial team, we will be tackling the issues that affect nursing. What better way to launch the professional issues series, than by interviewing SallyAnne Jones, a friend, mentor and president elect of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation and the Queensland Nurses Union, leader in critical care nursing and true role model for our profession.

In this episode of the podcast I am joined by once again by my friend, British Paediatrician, educationalist and philosopher, Dr Damian Roland (see his site Rolobot Rambles). As well as Damian this episode gets an extra helping of awesome from Damian's co-author, Medical Education rockstar, Emergency Physician, Associate Professor at Bond University, Dr Victoria Brazil. Damian and Victoria recently published a very interesting paper suggesting ten ways by which we may reconcile the groundswell of social media with 'traditional' medical education.
Top 10 ways to reconcile social media and 'traditional' education in emergency care
Both Damian and Victoria are passionate advocates for open access knowledge sharing and, as such, were very keen to translate the key messages via a FOAM platform.

In this episode we revisit a conversation I had with my good friend and fellow of the nursing brotherhood, Brian Ericsson. Brian, a clinical lead emergency nurse, invited me to have a chat and brainstorm about some of the risks, benefits and logistics of getting a program of in situ simulation started in his work place. We got quite carried away and ended up with two podcast episodes. One year on and in the lead up to SMACC Chicago, where I will be working on two workshops, including 'Leave the Sim Lab Behind: In Situ Simulation for Clinician Educators', I asked Brian if I could remaster and re-release a trimmed down single episode version of our conversation. I am really keen to deliver a number of episodes dancing through some of the more nuanced topics in sim and wanted to start with a solid foundation of looking at the phases of a simulation teaching event and some of the benefits for the learner and the educator in using sim in the workplace. Quite frankly, I had used all my best material and it would have been a poor surrogate if I'd tried to record it myself, so hence we have the first erNURSEpro/Injectable Orange crossover effort.

In this episode I'm joined by two change makers, thought leaders, and all round inspiring people. British Paediatrician, educationalist and philosopher, Dr Damian Roland () and experienced health and social care leader, radical, and champion of Change Day Australia, Mary Freer (). With both the NHS and Australian Change Days coming up on the 11th March 2015, we got together to talk about the power of social change.

Episode three of Injectable Orange Podcast sees me talking to, well, um, me. I know, only episode three and doing solo shows already. It's not exactly like that.
Last week I delivered a 25 minute talk to the new Intern group at my hospital. The talk was well received with some of the eager new docs coming and asking if they could share it with their colleagues or have my slide set. While they were most definitely welcome to the slides, as you can see from above, they were purely intended as a visual support to the talk (they are not my presentation). Mixed with a little egging on via Twitter, I thought I would record a condensed, made-for-podcast version and float it out into the ether.
So, for the new doctor, nurse or healthcare worker in your life, please share if you find it helpful.

Episode two of the podcast delves into the amazing mind of Ross Fisher. Ross is a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon in Sheffield in the UK, a self described presentation geek, and an invited guest speaker of great renown. Ross' presentation highlight has been speaking at TEDx Stuttgart - 'Inspiration: Is This What You Are Looking For?' In what is definitely the greatest moment for me with my Injectable Orange hat on, I speak to Ross about his passion, motivation, and philosophies on why we, as clinicians, must become better at presenting. I hope this episode serves as a gateway to Ross' brilliant blog:

The inaugural episode of Injectable Orange Podcast sees us speaking with Dr Matthew Nettle, Advanced Trainee in Emergency Medicine and educational enthusiast. We speak with Matt about his experiences and learnings from a trip to Baltimore to learn from the best medical educators in the business at 'The Teaching Course.' This chat deviates into education philosophy and an excited look into the crystal ball at the future paradigm of medical education.
