Keeping up to date in today’s world is increasingly difficult. Our knowledge base continues to grow at an exponential rate, the pace of life itself seems to be quickening despite our “time saving devices” of the 21st century and expectations are higher. Rightly, we no longer regard evidence based opinion as a reasonable way to make clinical service decisions.

Rather than help the situation, the internet can often result in information overload if accessed indescriminantly. Never before has getting the question right been so important.

So I was delighted to come across that Lazarus Karamadoukis (SpR in Bristol) signed posted to me. It has a daily update on a clinical or scientific renal issues and facilitates discussion and collaboration across the range of renal topics. The operation is slick and the sight has already got a critical mass in terms of content and participation.
