Urgent Matters serves as a dissemination vehicle for strategies on emergency department (ED) patient flow and quality. For a multidisciplinary audience of emergency care stakeholders, we develop quarterly e-newsletters, educational webinars, a searchable collection of ED improvement tools and strategies, national conferences, and a podcast series. Urgent Matters serves as a portal for innovative flow strategies, creating a central resource for hospital staff to discover field-tested initiatives that can be tailored to their organization. The podcasts are designed to be brief interviews with industry leaders so you can get ideas and get back to work.
