#Thisismylane– Episode 14
If you work in the ED, you’ve likely seen your fair share of victims of gun violence. Though mass shootings have brought this issue into the public eye, firearm violence has been a public issue in our country for decades. In this episode, you’ll hear some powerful stories from providers about their experiences with people killed and injured by firearms. Then, we talk with researcher and expert, Dr. Garen Wintemute, about trends he’s seen, and discuss how we, as physicians and medical providers, can be part of the solution.
Clearly this is a charged and complex topic. Let’s respectfully share our thoughts on how we can help prevent gun violence. We want to know! Share your thoughts on social media, @empulsepodcast, or on our website, ucdavisem.com.
