Here’s what I’ve cooked up in PonderMed Studios this past month…
Simon Fleming is an orthopaedic registrar, #MedEd PhD, and brain behind the #HammerItOut campaign. In this episode we take a deep dive into his work at the recently “hibernated” London Nightingale Hospital, with a focus on how the faculty tried to build the right “culture” (released 8/5/20).
In this second instalment with Simon we discuss what might have been done better with regards to the Nightingale project (released 12/5/20).
Lt. Col Grossman is the author of On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace; a book that describes coping strategies for the physiological and psychological effects of violence for people forced to kill in their line of work. In this episode we discuss the relationship between physiological arousal and performance, and the concept of stress inoculation (released 17/5/20).
Graham Cooke is a Professor of Infectious Diseases at Imperial College London and member of the WHO Essential Medicines Committee. In this first of two episodes with Graham, we discuss how the research landscape has changed since COVID arrived, and explore some of the COVID therapeutics research he’s up to including the exciting RECOVERY trial (released 26/5/20).
I also got myself back in the blogging game and wrote a piece for St.Emlyn’s called Purposefully Practicing for COVID-19.
As ever, I’d LOVE to get some feedback (positive and negative of course). If you can find the time I’d be super grateful if you could drop me an email/tweet/comment…
Sending love and positivity to everyone. It can’t be long now till the pubs open!
