What is FOAMed?

FOAMed stands for Free Open Access Medical Education. Medical education for anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Life In The Fast Lane is the ‘original’ FOAMed blog and this is how they describe the movement:

‘FOAM is a collection of resources, a community and an ethos. The FOAM community spontaneously emerged from the collection of constantly evolving, collaborative and interactive open access medical education resources being distributed on the web with one objective — to make the world a better place. FOAM is independent of platform or media — it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, Google hangouts, online videos, text documents, photographs, facebook groups, and a whole lot more’

We think it’s time the UK Paediatrics community joined in.
