COVID Journal Club #8 – The Webinar. Thursday 18th 11am BST

We took a well earned break last week from the weekly Covid19 webinar and journal club, but we are back on Thursday with 5​1–5​+1 papers to keep us all thinking about how we use science to defeat the pandemic.

This week we are joined by an old friend of St Emlyn’s, Katrin Hruska. Katrin is an emergency physician in Sweden and past president of Swedish Society for Emergency Medicine. Our Swedish colleagues are a fantastic bunch who are working hard to build the speciality in their country. They also run a fabulous conference which I’d strongly recommend attending to gain insight into Scandinavian EM, and to learn about Swedish culture (and especially fika and saunas). It really is worth the trip in person assuming it returns post COVID.

This week’s papers to read before Thursday are.

LATE BREAKING – Just in today is the first positive result from the RECOVERY trial. Although the paper is not yet fully published we will deep dive into this and the platform trial concept on Thursday

And our retraction of the week is this from the NEJM
