I was recently invited by Rick Body and Natalie May to speak at the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) Meeting in Manchester, England, September 2015. The topic was "The Essence of Emergency Medicine." I was allotted 20 minutes to give this talk and in my mind I immediately thought about two questions:
- How am I supposed to talk about the essence of EM in 20 minutes?
- What is it that we really do in the emergency department on a day to day basis?
