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.
