This week begins with an update on Monty's progress after his COVID 19 diagnosis. Have the symptoms returned or is he back to his usual self? One thing we know for certain when it comes to this virus and our treatment of it's symptoms; it is a dynamic situation. Management of the COVID patient is constantly changing.

There then follows a conversation about the various uses...info_outline TopMedTalk | Burn out - a frank discussion
Burn out and stress management have been an important theme on TopMedTalk recently, here we have a top medical professional sharing their story in relation to the topic. How do we describe "burn out", are certain words a barrier to discussion? How do we cut through to people who are most likely to suffer from this incredibly dangerous condition?

This piece focuses upon the African Surgical Outcomes Study (ASOS-2). More than a thousand people across Africa have combined forces to make this research into perioperative medicine in a resource limited environment happen.

Was not supported by the available evidence at all" How is Monty feeling? What are the actual symptoms of COVID 19? Why has misleading information been apparently knowingly released regarding this?
