Short read about general etiquette when asking questions at research talks. Very entertaining! 🙂

*Won't repost but some regret there at writing "injecting drug users". It would have been better to write "people who inject/use drugs". Need to avoid the labels. 😀

Hi! I'm an academic GP (a UK based primary care doctor). My clinical work is generally with injecting drugs users. Academically, I'm more teaching orientated at a med school but I'm also involved with substance misuse, injecting drug use and drug policy. I'm also an editor at the British Journal of General Practice.
