Simon Carley, Natalie May, Ash Leibig and Libby Hanrahan discuss how we can take the ideas, inspirations and thoughts from SMACCFORCE and put them into practice.
How do we combat the attitude of “that’s not how we do it” to open ourselves up to new ideas and processes?
I’m a Professor of Emergency Medicine from Manchester, England working in both adult and paediatric trauma centres. In MedEd I have manhy hats. I’m editor in chief on the St EmlynÄôs blog and podcast, co-founder of BestBets, St.Emlyns and the MSc in emergency medicine at Manchester Metropolitan University and am an Associate Editor for the Emergency Medicine Journal. My research interests include diagnostics, MedEd, Major incidents & Evidence based Emergency Medicine. Talk to me about anything above, or cycling, or travel, or food or my family. After SMACC I’m travelling round Vietnam and Cambodia with Fiona (Prof. and Ophthalmologist in Manchester) and my two teenage girls.
Natalie trained in Emergency Medicine and subspecialty Paediatric EM in the UK, where she worked for just over a year as a consultant before moving to Sydney where she now works as locally as a Specialist in Emergency Medicine, as a Specialist in Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine with Sydney HEMS and occasionally in Neonatal and Pediatric Transport (NETS).
She has a long-held interest in medical education and holds a postgraduate certificate in workplace-based medical education. Natalie is a proud contributor to the St. Emlyn’s blog and podcast.

Ashley is a division chief, nurse, helicopter rescue specialist, veteran, organizer, educator, author, friend, high strung, never sleeping, career procrastinator, wanna-be over achiever and most importantly; Mom.She is massively proud to be on the organizing committee for SMACC and SMACCFORCE, and loves her FOAM family. She talks about some stuff and writes some things. She thinks writing about herself in third person is weird.
