Clinical reviews keep GPs up to date
I found the new clinical review section in the March issue very useful.
It Is full of facts that are presented in a very practical way for GPs; it gives the information quickly and succinctly. I would not have had the time to research these areas myself, and my eyes would probably have glazed over reading the original research papers.
The contributors seem to have the knack of distilling the information and, being GPs, they know what our angle is. I get the feeling that this ability is getting rarer.
I also think the CPD quiz is excellent and I am going to try to keep up with it so as to amaze my appraiser. She is used to my last-minute efforts, and this spread-out approach should be more achievable and less nerve-racking.
‘A hundred years ago' is a bit of light relief and it is interesting to compare the present and the past. I am not so sure that we have come as far as we think we have.
The women's health symposium was a good refresher and brought me up to speed on new approaches to the conditions discussed. It appears that I am doing too much with patients with dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and the recommendations should save me some time!
