Will the journal club survive?: Commentary on… Are Journal Clubs Useful in Teaching Psychiatry?

  • Tom MacLaren and James Warner
Summary

We outline benefits and problems of introducing internet-based approaches (e.g. e-learning, social networking) into journal clubs. We also look at potential risks to the continuing existence of clubs posed by the changing health economy and the move in psychiatry from clinical medicine to community care. Overall, we are optimistic for the journal club's survival.
