Journal Club Summary March 2017 – Coffee, Checklists and Self Flagellation

Simulcast Journal Club is a monthly series heavily inspired by the ALiEM MEdIC Series.  Each month we publish a case and link a paper with associated questions for discussion.  We moderate and summarise the discussion at the end of the month, including exploring the opinions of experts from the field.

For March we discussed the article :

Marshall, S. D. (2017)

Anaesthesia, 72: 289–295. doi:10.1111/anae.13707
