Remember

  1. Respect those around you and value their opinion
  2. The History is everything
  3. There are 4 key treatments we give in the ED – think whether every patient you see needs any of these and you will save lives and relieve pain
    1. Oxygen
    2. Fluids
    3. Analgesia
    4. Antibiotics
  4. Think ‘What difference have I made to this patient?’
  5. No patient (almost) wants to be in the ED.
  6. Spend twice as long with patients you don’t like or don’t get on with.
  7. Look the part.
  8. Be on time.
  9. Take your breaks – eat when you can and drink water when you can’t.
  10. Enjoy yourself…
