Warwick Isaacson

ED Consultant

Warwick is an emergency specialist at the Gold Coast University Hospital. As a former marine biologist and high school teacher I found medicine later than most. The draw of Emergency Medicine has always been in the complexity and unpredictability of our specialty. Learning how to provide meaningful education within this environment is fascinating and profoundly rewarding.

He loves working within a large team and would never shy away from a challenge or a presentation.

The pandemic has been hard on Emergency Physicians in Canada.  Already working in overcrowded emergency departments we came together early in the pandemic at CAEP’s virtual town halls.  We shared ideas and expertise from across the country to become stronger and care better for our patients.  After the new normal of the pandemic set in, the need to share expertise and stay connected continued.  National Grand Rounds replaced the virtual town halls and is now where Canada’s Emergency Physicians come to stay connected and up to date on the latest evidence.   Difficult issues within emergency medicine are discussed and debated.  Important clinical topics relevant to every emergency department across the country, from small-town to large urban centre, are covered in this virtual platform.  CAEP’s National Grand Rounds will remain as a silver lining to the many challenges faced by the Emergency Medicine community in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Overall learning objectives:

  1. Consider strategies to ensure career longevity.
  2. Apply up-to-date evidence to inform clinical decisions.
  3. Influence the future direction of EM in Canada
  4. Stay connected to CAEP and colleagues within a virtual platform.
