Welcome to another Best Practice Guideline podcast from RCEM.

Best Practice Guidelines are produced by the Royal College for important problems where there is anticipated to be little or no relevant high quality evidence. They rely heavily on consensus and the experience of sub-committee members. They are designed to be usable by Emergency Department Clinicians and are short and digestible.

This podcast covers the Best Practice Guideline on Crowding in the Emergency Department. This is a huge problem for all of us that work in Emergency Medicine and this guideline aims to help inform your management of such a situation.
