Congratulations to Dr Katie Liston, who is in her first year of Basic Specialist Training, for submitting the winning review for September - October 2020.
Her submission is entitled “Dapagliflozin in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (DAPA-CKD study)”.
Dr Liston chose this article because SGLT2 inhibitors are emerging as powerful cardio-renal protective agents. This study was the first to demonstrate benefit in chronic kidney disease in a non-diabetic cohort.
Dr Liston is interested in pursuing a career in either endocrinology or nephrology, and she is currently working in Naas General Hospital.

Members of the eJournal Club judging panel were also very impressed with the quality of these submissions:
Our eJournal Club, launched in October 2019, is for doctors in Basic and Higher Specialist Training. It's a unique opportunity to share reviews of practice-changing articles with over 1,000 doctors.
The eJournal Club is in RCPI Brightspace, our virtual learning environment, and is open for submissions from doctors in BST and HST.
Trainees are welcome to submit reviews presented at journal clubs in their hospital. For the first year of the eJournal Club, articles must be relevant to the specialty of General Internal Medicine.
The judging panel is particularly keen for reviews of COVID-19 related articles to share with your peers.
The RCPI Trainees' Committee (formerly known as the Collegiate Members Committee) is the longest-running Trainee committee in RCPI. We are always looking for more Trainees and Collegiate Members to get involved and become part of a group that can really make a difference.
