Airway is among other things a forum for emergency doctors to tell stories in front of a live audience. Why stories? Why Emergency Medicine?
Because ER doctors have the best stories. And because there is something about telling stories that helps us do the work that we do.
We tell stories to explain and understand what has happened to us, and in listening to stories, we absorb their inherent messages. We learn how to think about the world.. and how to think about our work. Stories are how we make the culture of the hospital and of emergency medicine.
We tell stories to inspire each other.
