RPSGB Local Branch Meeting

I just came back from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain Local Branch Meeting which discussed on the use of Antibiotics and Statins.

Something we learn during this lecture: antibiotics are not all that useful in simple infections. Most infections would resolve by themselves and the use of antibiotics only help resolve the symptoms by, at most, 1 day. Thus, simple infections like sore throat, eye infection, ear infection in children, do not really require a course of antibiotics.

One of the interesting things to note about is, that when you place lecturers in the seats where we would normally sit in, they become like little kids themselves. They chatter and giggle and act like how we would normally act in a lecture.

This is my simple (but incomplete) CPD for antibiotics and statins RPSGB local branch meeting.
