Lung cancer, NSAIDs and the challenge of rapport building…..

Here at Pallaborative North West we have a new feature for you running between now and the end of March 2022. Every week we will “pass the mike” to one of our members to take on the role of guest editor and write a post highlighting one, two or three articles that they have read. It can be anything at all that has made an impression and that they want to share with us. These special slots are for a limited time only and we can’t wait to see what turns up.

Just to get us going for this week , and to whet your appetite we have three articles, all from the Royal College of Physicians Clinical Medicine Journal.

Firstly Emma Dowd and colleagues provide a very useful update on Lung Cancer for the non respiratory physician including diagnostic steps, recognition and management of acute presentations and the latest treatments. https://www.rcpjournals.org/content/clinmedicine/21/6/e578

It is great to see trainee doctors putting pen to paper and sharing their experience and thoughts. This short article by Mohsin Butt is a reflection of a foundation doctor on how to build rapport with patients. Could we provide any commentary back from our experiences in palliative care?https://www.rcpjournals.org/content/clinmedicine/21/6/e662

And finally it is quite a while since we reviewed our own Pallaborative North West clinical guideline on NSAIDs. Perhaps a topic for our 2023 programme??. In the meantime take a few mins to read this short article reviewing the relationship between NSAIDS and peptic ulcer disease https://www.rcpjournals.org/content/clinmedicine/21/2/131

We really hope you enjoy these three short articles. Do let us know what you think. And remember- why not be our guest editor for a week and take the opportunity to share some of the things that you have read recently.

Happy reading
