Welcome to FOAMmedic.org. Our blog startet as a danish blog with focus on prehospital medicin, simulation, education and sharing. We now have friends around the world and some of our post and podcast are in english.
Our aim started out with a vision to share knowledge in danish to danish prehospital enthusiast, from the english FOAMed world. Being a very small country with a lot of non english speaking colleagues we aimed to make already great material accessible in there native tongue. Since then we have made content in both language and made great friends in the FOAM community all over the world.
The co-founders of FOAMmedic.org is Peter Bech, Morten Lindkvist, Martin Matzen and Karl Høeg Four Danish paramedics all on a mission to spread the #FOAMed concept via blogpost, podcast and events. All four work as facilitators on CAMES, where we participate in the education of medical staff, both in and pre hospital. We always aim to make medical education a playfull and fun experience.
