In today’s show we’re trialling a new format where we review the April 2018 edition of the Therapeutics Today monthly newsletter produced by The National Medicines Information Centre (NMIC) based in St James Hospital Dublin.
We are joined by Mary Teeling and MaryJo MacAvin, Medical Advisors with The National Medicines Information Centre (NMIC) based in St James Hospital Dublin, and are involved in writing the NMIC monthly Therapeutics Today newsletter and bimonthly bulletin.
The newsletter helps busy doctors stay up to date by reviewing clinically relevant journal articles in a succinct manner, and will be well known to many listeners. If you haven’t signed up to receive the free newsletter, you can do so by contacting the NMIC, and I’ll provide contact details to join the mailing list at the end of the show.
This podcast aims to serve as a companion piece to the April 2018 edition of the newsletter, and we hope you find it of value. Please email any feedback and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
As usual, hotlinks to resources and further reading can be found in the show notes, which you can access by tapping or swiping on the show icon on your smart device.
Please spread the word to colleagues, subscribe via your podcast player, and leave a rating or written review in iTunes or Apple podcasts – it really helps!
