November 2016: First10EM / Broomedocs Journal Club

Welcome back

Another month, another sheaf of articles hand picked by Dr Justin Morgenstern for your edification.  Check out the written summary over at First10EM for the visual learners!

This month we cover the perils of beef jerky, chocolate, PEs and codeine.  Of course, there is a bunch of other stuff that you need to know to sound smart at your next journal club!  So sit back, grab a cool drink and listen as we discuss the articles of the month for November 2016.

As always – the full text PDFs are available if you click on the links below – read and draw your own conclusions!

And don’t forget to check out the very smart and smooth competition for FOAM journal clubbing with Dr Ryan Radecki at the ALL NEW EM Lit of Note Podcast..
