Journal publishes study into Pulse readers' comments on GP news

Comment

Interesting to hear the response of the RCGP who dismiss it as ‘the opinion of the authors’. Urrr actually it’s an analysis of the opinions of a group of GPs posting comments on PULSE, not the authors. Typically concieted and detatched. OK so it’s not a randomised control trial but qualitative reasearch like this has a role to play in the general discussion. If nothing else’s it demonstrates that people read the comments on PULSE, that to me is marvellous news. Social media plays an increasingly important role in how our society debates issues. Like it or not it’s a fact of today’s world. At least somebody is paying attention. Why wouldn’t that be a good thing?
