We need your help to determine how to evaluate medical education blogs and podcasts
Several tools have been developed to assist medical students, EM residents, and EM attending / consultant physicians to determine which online resources they should use and recommend for teaching and learning. None of them have been validated. The METRIQ Study will evaluate these tools when applied to emergency medicine and critical care blogs and podcasts.
Participants in the blog study evaluated 20 blog posts for quality using their gestalt and two previously derived tools. Enrollment occurred from March 1st-May 1st, 2016 and rating is ongoing.
Participants in the podcast study will evaluate 5-10 podcast episodes for quality using their gestalt and two previously derived tools. Those who pre-enroll will be the first to receive official invitations to participate.
in the study!
**Since this video was recorded the number of blog posts included for evaluation in the METRIQ Study has increased from 15 to 20**
