Patient peer review opportunity

The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal) is an international peer reviewed medical journal and a fully online first scientific publication.

If you're a patient living with rheumatoid disease or lupus or a carer of a patient, you are invited to become a patient reviewer. The BMJ, a Dragon Claw partner, has committed to improving the relevance and patient centredness of its research, education, analysis, and editorial articles by asking patients to comment on them.  Patient reviewers do not need medical or scientific training, because your reflections on the specific article provided may be very valuable.

If you are interested or wish to chat about the opportunity please contact Dragon Claw in the first instance This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Street Art

As you move through the site and its many sections you will notice unusual art works, usually at the top of each main section.  More will be added as time goes by.  These images are street art from Sydney, Australia.  We are using these images (with permission) to make the site distinctive and memorable. We particularly wanted to move away from clinical images and happy smiling faces which are so routine these days.  Hope you like the images.
