Latest winning review in Trainees’ eJournal Club – Dr Joseph Morris, Congratulations!

We are delighted to announce our eJournal Club Submission Winner for November - December 2020

Congratulations to Dr Joseph Morris, who is in his second year of Basic Specialist Training, for submitting the winning review for November to December 2020.

His submission is entitled “Reduced Lung-Cancer Mortality with Volume CT Screening in a Randomized Trial: RCPI eJournal club article review”.

Dr Morris, whose career focus is interventional medicine i.e. cardiology and respiratory, chose this study as it is one of two large studies that have shown reduced mortality in lung cancer in recent years. This study shows signs of hope for a cohort that has predominantly poor outcomes. However, the rollout of CT screening for lung cancer is not quite plausible or justified just yet. 

You can read the winning submission below.
