About Us

At the Saskatchewan Emergency Medicine Collective, our goal is to provide every emergency medicine practitioner a place to share their valuable knowledge and experience. Together, we can positively shape emergency medicine and improve health outcomes for everyone.

 

We’ve come here from different backgrounds and places and we work in different settings, but we have a lot in common. We take pride in our work, we strive to be better, and we value the knowledge and experience each of us brings to the table.

 

We know that different emergency departments—from urban to rural to remote—present their own specific challenges, but together we have a wealth of knowledge. Not afraid to ask questions, seek help, or offer support, we share resources and build connections across all settings that help each other to succeed.

We are building expertise, strength, care, and sustainability for each other. —James
