Abstract

Juxtaposing quality with education in emergency medicine (EM) generates two distinct issues: 1) the quality of education in EM, and 2) educating about quality in EM. There is considerable overlap between the two, and neither should be considered without the other. This paper focuses on education about quality in EM, with some discussion of the quality of EM education. Despite its apparent importance, there is a relative paucity of research on this topic.
