Australasian Health and Medical Blogs

LITFL aim to collate and maintain a list of Australasian (Australia and New Zealand)  Health, Medical, Nursing and Midwifery blogs, with their related twitter accounts. It is often difficult to pick ANZ authors from their postings – so leave a comment on this post so that we can make the list as accurate as possible…

Please leave comments below if you would like to add to the list of ANZ bloggers. The permanent link to this table will be hosted at the Aussie and Kiwi Health and Medical Blogs

    I’d love to be added to the list -- I write Healthskills Blog on self managing chronic pain. Written for health professionals but read by many. Also known for Friday Funnies (sad but true).

    hi Mike,
    I have a really old website AllergyNet Australia established 1995 which I blogged (before it was called blogging) for 15 years, got a bit hard with the other stuff I do (I’m 63) so last year I deleted all the old news items and now microblog about Allergy/Immunology/Medicine on @AllergyNet. I do have a non-medical blog EvenFourLines which is really just for me (ie self-indulgent). Your contribution to medical social media is enormous, congratulations. As an old nerd, I continue to be amazed at the lack of interest most doctors have in this form of further education. BTW, the RACP accepts my Twitter work as enough to cover all my CPD.
    I really enjoy your comments.
    best wishes
    John Weiner

      Thanks for your kind words John
      Have included your Twitter account and blog
      Not sure that the ACEM will accept my work at Life in the FastLane…especially with the invention of the UCEM to let them now how we ‘really’ feel.
      Keep up the great work

    Does it have to be a blog to get listed or will a health and medical website count. is a mental health assessment application that is available in Australia and will soon be available in New Zealand. We’re ramping up our social media strategy and you will be hearing a lot more from us! keep up the great work with LITFL

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks so much for your continuing hard work for med education. Just to let you know that AllergyNet Australia is relaunched in a new format and I wonder if you could replace EvenFourLines for me on your list with AllergyNet Australia.

    Great blog by you and the list of Australian blogs is fantastic. The link to our North Coast Area Health Service doesn’t work- have the correct url above. Could you change the name to Library Clippings and in the Speciality Section could you add “A health information and research blog .”

    Hi Mike,

    I have just put up a resource for critical care trainees to prepare for the CICM Primary Exam. There are plenty of summaries here based on the CICM Syllabus which may also be of use to ACEM/ANZCA candidates. I must confess that I used your ECG tutorial as the basis for a teaching session last thursday with a bunch of military medics and got a great response, so a belated thanks is in order too.

    The site is and twiter feed @chrisando1

    Cheers, Chris

    My name is Vin
    I am a GP with an interest in Medical Education and psychotherapy.
    I have started 2 blogs recently which I want to share.
    GP Exam Support at GPExamSupport
    Psychotherapy blog on anything relating to mental health ePsychConnect

    Feel free to give me feedback on this so that we can improve it.

    Thank you.

    Hi Mike I am a NZ paramedic (15 years) and also work in Australia on remote/offshore sites. I have just written an autobiographical account of my time as a NZ paramedic called Priority One and am the first NZ working Ambulance Paramedic to write one. If you could add my website to the list I would much appreciate it. Love your website and the varied content.
