Welcome to the New format developed just for you
Dear Reader.
Dear readers, you will notice some newsletter changes. There’s only contents page with a few words for each item and then a link to read more. We are also incorporating a few new features: Commentaries on some recent scientific publications that impact on our daily clinical practice or are very thought provoking A clinical quiz section, this will be a series of clinical cases to stimulate thought and perhaps act as a resource for teaching and CPD A product focus. This is a simple “have you heard about” section, it is not an advertising section. We hope you enjoy this new newsletter.
