Journal Clubs: Why and how to run them and how to publish them

I was trying to set up a theme for the blog, and this seems like a reasonable explanation! I am also contemplating adding a brief summary on why I choose the paper and what additional information has surfaced.

Five reasons for running a journal club
To highlight new findings.

To teach practitioners how to search for interesting articles representing the best evidence to inform clinical practice.

To encourage practitioners to read and appraise publications critically and give them the ability to do so.

To encourage practitioners to do applied clinical research and to show them how.

To improve debating skills, demonstrate leadership skills, and aid peer mentorship.
