Getting to know you – Andrew Tagg

Our “Getting to Know You” segment ensures PREDICT members are aware of new members, their interests and areas of expertise and where they are located.

This month we introduce Dr Andrew Tagg.

“I work in the Western suburbs of Melbourne at both Sunshine and Footscray hospitals as an emergency physician with a special interest in paediatrics.

I have a special interest in the role of social media as a tool to enhance knowledge translation. I am constantly fascinated by the fact that we still seem to do the same thing despite evidence suggesting otherwise.  In my day-to-day work I like to ask “Why?” and encourage others to do the same. In an age where the latest paediatric emergency textbooks are already 3 or 4 years old by the time they come to publication I am keen to use the most effective means possible to translate what we research into what we do.”
