Skilling Healthcare Professionals in a Constantly Evolving Landscape

The only constant in healthcare is change and uncertainty – and this couldn’t be more apparent than in the emergence of SARS-cov-2.

Leading figures such as Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates did warn of the dangers of a global pandemic. After all, we’ve been here before with influenza at the turn of the 20th century and more recently in 2009. But no one could have predicted the scale of the Covid-19 outbreak globally and how swiftly it would turn life upside down.

There is still much to learn about the impact of the virus on patients and the NHS. Unknowns include how long immunity lasts, what the health consequences will be for survivors in the months and weeks to come, and how the health service and its workforce will need to adapt.

How to know when “thinking goes wrong”

by Prof Theo Arvanitis

The brain is an amazing organ. It controls many of the functions of the human body – but it is also the organ that processes the information that allows us to understand things – including itself. It is also the last part of the human body to be fully understood. That is, in part, due to it being protected within the skull, but also because of the complexity of its operation. However, recent developments in biomedical imaging techniques are giving us new insight into how it works, how it goes wrong and how we go about fixing it.
