#FOAMems is now here!
by Alan Batt. Last modified: 04/02/14
We’ve registered a new healthcare hastag for use on Twitter & Facebook for all things related to EMS & prehospital education and research – #FOAMems. This will allow for collection of all EMS and prehospital related material using one hashtag – and staying within the FOAM family solidifies our place within the medical community.
What is the FOAM family exactly? Check this post out for a quick review on what all this FOAM business is about.
We’ve learned an extraordinary amount thanks to our FOAMed, FOAMcc, FOAMped and FOAMtox friends – but let’s not be FOAM tag-alongs (pun-intended) any longer! Let’s get sharing pertinent prehospital information amongst providers worldwide with FOAMems.
Of course, lots of information is applicable to all fields and can be multi-tagged! If you’re on Twitter, spread the word!
If you’re not on Twitter – get on it. Check out our post on Twitter for EMS Providers!
Find out how many people are using #FOAMems (and who they are & what they are saying) on the Symplur #FOAMems page.
