This month has seen a complete redesign of Pulse magazine. We have redesigned the magazine to make it more digestible, and showcase everything we are doing online on our various publications. We will continue to provide the same award-winning investigations and analysis, hard-hitting news, clinical CPD and support for readers in running their practice.
The Pulse cover feature focuses on overmedicalisation, and asks whether the Covid pandemic has given us a chance to reassess our reliance on medicalising so many patient problems. We also look at how the £250m winter fund has been spent.
The redesign has brought some new features, including ‘Mythbusters’, which looks at dubious claims around GPs (this month on them issuing DNRs to teenagers with learning difficulties) and ‘Pulse Checker’, a light-hearted look at general practice.
In our clinical section, we have a casebook on complex asthma presentations, we look at the new Covid therapeutics available, a Clinical Clangers piece looks at the potential for misdiagnosing hallucinations in the elderly.
