Open Source EM Textbook

A post to the EMED-L listserv caught my eye:

I've also been working on a new kind of EM textbook. I'm hoping to find some contributors, so please read on. Anyone who has used the Wikipedia will know the potential for this new format.

The new book is called the Open-Content Textbook of Emergency Medicine (OCTEM). Open-content means that anyone - doctor, nurse, PA, EMT or interested layperson - can write chapters, edit existing chapters, and even re-organize the text. I am writing to you today to invite you to take part: jump right in and write or edit a chapter today.

I've copied the entire post to our website, so you can learn more if you're interested.
