What I read on the internet (Part III)

Having managed to mention Mumsnet in CCHSR blogs here, here, and here, and given the signs of the remarkable force of online campaigns by the pro e-cigarette lobby which we find in the BMJ this week, I am inclined to speculate that these campaigns appear to have arrived on Mumsnet too  with a remarkably pro e-cigarette discussion appearing recently.

Probably worth highlighting the work of the Behaviour and Health Research Unit at the Institute of Public Health  at this point.

In other news, CCHSR’s Yoryos Lyratzopoulos blogs here about the diagnostic error in medicine conference – and following the conference on twitter #SIDM2013, a link to a crowd sourcing website for medical diagnosis was publicised. At this point I might mention Mumsnet again as the General Health discussion board  (although not exclusively) is another place where you find the crowd sourcing of opinions on symptoms and diagnosis.
