Jellybean Podcast with Doug Lynch
About This Show
Jellybeans with Dr Doug Lynch, poorly differentiated doctor and pathological polymath.
Emergency Medicine. Critical Care. Aeromedical Retrieval. Remote Area Medicine. Resource Poor Medicine. Disaster Medicine. Conflict Medicine. Ethics. Politics. Life. Death.
These podcasts are atypical interviews with persons of interest.
Critical conversations with Critical Carers. Carers like you.
The people that listen to this podcast are insiders, movers, shakers and, I suspect, every listener is potentially a future interviewee.
Each conversation is a story shared that has at least one hidden lesson.
This is not straight forward #FOAMed (Free Open Access Medical Education.
This is about the people behind #FOAMed, their ideals, their victories, their failures, their thoughts.
What we do in our working lives is, on the good days, the best job in the world.
What we do in our working lives is, on the bad days, one of the worst jobs in the world.
I am just a human and so are you. I need to be reminded of why I put myself through all this, why I tolerate the damage to me, my life, my health, my family. I need to be inspired and re-inspired almost everyday.
The Jellybeans exist because the people I talk to are inspiring, they are fascinating and they are funny.
The Jellybean Podcast is has been around since before the first SMACC conference. We have been at every one. We have been a lot of places. We talk with interesting people in the Critical Care Medical World or on the fringes of it. We do this everywhere and anywhere. We speak to world leaders and front liners, we speak to paramedics, nurses, academics, researchers, students, the quiet achievers and the rock stars.
Its about the quality of the conversation not the quality of the audio.

Over simulated? Simulation; surely one of the fastest growing parts of health education in recent times. There is much more to simulation than a plastic mannequin and healthcare is but a small part of the bigger picture. Matt McPartlin went along to the Australasian Simulation Congress and spoke to ICU nurse and co-convenor Jessica Stokes-Parish.
We sent Matt McPartlin off to pretend to be a submariner, a jet pilot and an ICU Nurse. He wasn’t qualified for any of these difficult tasks but he is qualified to talk about it. Here is Matt’s report:
“War, video games and virtual hospital beds. There are links. Many links. The ever present threat and application of war in various parts of the world have throughout history led to advances in healthcare. (Some see this as a benefit but arguably, at best war has pressed the need rather than generated the the benefit itself, but that’s not the point of this particular podcast.)
One of those links is training. And simulation has been an integral part of training. The military uses simulation in many forms – tabletop exercises, part task trainers, in situ simulation and more recently virtual reality. Video gaming is essentially entertainment through simulation. Industries such as engineering, logistic supply chains and motorsport use simulation too. And so does healthcare.
So it would seem that each of these areas might be able to contribute something to eachother’s development. A group of simulation enthusiasts certainly think so. They organised a big simulation congress to help that process along. And they threw in research themes, expert-led workshops and DIY self help sessions.
It’s called the Australasian Simulation Congress and it happened for the third year over 4 days at the end of August in Sydney’s International Conference Centre on Darling Harbour.
Jessica Stokes-Parish is a critical care nurse who has spent time running and developing simulation training at both Newcastle and Tamworth Hospitals in New South Wales. She is also one of the convenors of the Australasian Simulation Congress (Website link: https://www.simulationcongress.com)

We talk about the origins of the Congress, the development of simulation based training, take a peek into the near future and try to solve the lack of surfing opportunities in Tamworth.” MMcP
