raft of medical students and trainees to follow in his
He was in the habit of discussing interesting topics from the
journals with whoever was around. He had just read about NMS and
listed its clinical features, rejoicing in the new word ‘obtunded’
to describe the affect of patients with this condition.
At the time, I thought the object of the exercise was to make

keeping up to date but also, by repeating the details to us
juniors, was securing the information in his own mind.
So, the next time you do a module or listen to a podcast, don’t
keep it to yourself. Let your colleagues in on the news, and
remember to tell them you found it in CPD Online.
