It’s often said that the best thing about medicine is that is keeps you humble. Whenever you think you have it mastered, it demonstrates to you that you don’t. In the last couple of days I’ve been humbled, not by diagnostic challenges but by dr/pt relationship challenges.

Cancer screening is not a one time intervention, it’s a process. The goal is not to detect disease, but to treat such detected disease if needed.

Collaboration often prevails over competition in evolution ... if you want to go quick, go alone, if you want to go far, go as a team and wait on your partner...

“I’ve often wondered why we routinely put so many patients into hospital gowns within minutes of their arrival. Sometimes referred to as ‘dignity gowns,’ such dignity as they afford is only in comparison to being stark naked.”

Call me old-fashioned, but when I read anything to do with big data and/or AI, I want to apply the 3 tests of good science: - contestability - replicability - applicability Does anyone know of a good (short) critical discussion?

The characteristics of a Caravaggio painting are drama, story-telling, violence, characters you’d see on the streets of Rome then and now, light and darkness, and immediacy (“like a flash of lightning”).

Why oh why in a civilised society is scarcely one quarter of hospice care government funded? The NHS is meant to be cradle to grave. Do our dying not deserve our greatest compassion?
