Resident remediation is a complex and common issue in emergency medicine programs and requires a specific knowledge base. The Remediation Task Force (RTF) of the Council of Residency Directors in Emergency Medicine (CORD-EM) was created to identify remediation best practices and to develop tools for program directors. Initially housed on a Wiki page, and now located within the CORD-EM website, the RTF provides resources including accepted universal language for documentation and sample remediation plans. The RTF also created a remediation consult service composed of experienced educators to provide real-time structured feedback and advice to submitted remediation scenarios with consultation outcomes and conclusions uploaded to the website. CORD-EM members now have easy access to online resources and expert advice for remediation queries through the consult service. The combination of online resources and access to real-time expert advice is an innovative approach to improving resident remediation and recognizing best practices.
