Ch ch changes!

Following a few discussions on twitter, it seems that by defining a topic each week, and basing the case on that, we're missing a really vital learning point - how to work out what the diagnosis is, based purely on presentation. After all, patients won't tell you they're an endocrine patient, and neither will you get told this in finals!

So, from next week (19th November onwards), instead of being "neurology" or "trauma" weeks, the weeks' topics will become "An approach to the patient with...."to try and help us all think outside specific systems, and learn the presentations of a variety of conditions. Fingers crossed this is another step to improving twitfrg!
