Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust has recently published an interactive grand round in collaboration with The Lancet Respiratory Medicine which features on the journal's website. This is the first in a series and the collaboration will see several cases about different respiratory diseases highlighted .
The interactive grand round is an online feature with the aim of educating users in an engaging and entertaining way. It follows a format similar to the hospital teaching meetings with the patient's history and examination revealed in stages, and questions asked based on the information provided.
The first interactive grand round published this month is titled, “Never smoker with ground glass opacities on CT” and was led by Eric Lim, consultant thoracic surgeon with contributions from Professor Andrew Nicholson, consultant histopathologist, Dr Simon Padley, consultant radiologist and Dr Sanjay Popat, consultant medical oncologist from The Royal Marsden Hospital, who all provided audio interviews about the care of patients and appropriate x-rays and photographs.
