Clinical podcast: Refreshing your knowledge on sports injuries
Injuries while playing sport or exercising are a common occurrence – but they are often avoidable. Refresh your knowledge in this important area and find out how one trainee pharmacist juggles his passion for rugby with his time in the dispensary.
In the latest C+D clinical pocast, clinical and custom content editor Nana Ofori-Atta talks to Simon Uzokwe, a trainee pharmacist and member of the Ealing Trailfinders rugby union club, about how to avoid common sports injuries and his top tips for healing fast.
In the news section of the podcast, Mr Ofori-Atta catches up with C+D digital reporter Eliza Loukou on some of this month’s hottest stories – including an “unpalatable” message for contractors cancelling locum shifts last minute.
The podcast also features a clip from C+D’s A Coffee With… podcast episode with prison pharmacist Adefunmilola Oshi-Ojuri, where she tells digital reporter Emily Stearn about how she had to change her practise during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the monthly “dose from a rose” segment shines a light on the natural origins of two chemotherapy drugs.
