Welcome to 5 Minute Fridays!

Each Friday, CENA publishes a resource containing ‘bite-sized’ education on a patient presentation that could present to your emergency department. CENA members receive a weekly email containing the resource, and copies are posted online via social media. There, colleagues share thoughts and experiences on the topic, and consider how the patient might be cared for in their own departments. Find links to these conversations below.

On this page, you will find downloadable versions of CENA’s 5 Minute Friday (5MF) resources. We encourage you to share them online using the hashtag #CENAOrg5MF or distribute within your workplace. You might consider using the topics as a conversation starter for your own intra-department education, forward it to your staff, or simply print and post in the tea-room.

Whichever way you choose to utilise the education, we hope you enjoy 5 Minute Fridays. If you’ve got more food for thought, or would like to request a topic, email your suggestions to cenaeducator@cena.org.au.
