When you need information on the use of intramuscular or intravenous injectable drugs you should find what you need in the Injectable Medicines Database (MEDUSA) available to Trust staff at http://medusa.wales.nhs.uk/?ID=9f22667e88ca3002c73a0757f58f1ae7949. You’ should find this link in your Internet “bookmarks” (favourites) in a folder called NHS Applications when you’re logged in to Trust computers and it will log you straight in to MEDUSA.
Alternatively access is also available through http://medusa.wales.nhs.uk/?ID=9f22667e88ca3002c73a0757f58f1ae7949

Hot Topics in Emergency Medicine is your own blog reflecting the topics that are important to WSHFT ED staff, but of course there are other great sources of information.
Heartlands ED have developed a new website called EMCAST http://www.heftemcast.co.uk/ to help people keep up to date with relevant EM topics in evidenced based medicine, new guidelines, clinical skills and training in Emergency Medicine. They have just begun adding SAQs as a preparation aid for those of you who have the pleasure of preparing for exams! Try their podcasts (also available on iTunes), clinical skills videos and twitter feed @HEFTEMCAST.
