Social Media is growing in popularity, quickly becoming the go to medium for keeping up to date, collaborating, networking & sharing knowledge. In November 2015 the authors registered a hashtag, #IrishEMS, with the express aim of hosting a one hour chat each Monday night. While it is open to all and its success relies upon international and multidisciplinary contributors, the hashtag was chosen to give it a focus based in Irish prehospital guidelines and Irish EMS practice.
