Welcome to the second issue of the ‘best practice’ jounal
It was encouraging to read the feedback from our first issue of ‘best practice’. This is a learning curve for us but we are pleased to hear we are on the right track. As well as the congratulatory comments we were pleased to get some suggestions for improvements. All comments we get help to shape future issues of ‘best practice’.
Some clinicians tell us they prefer succinct articles, which neatly summarise current thinking with pointers toward further reading, others prefer articles which are more academic in their style and explore the evidence around issues that are subjects of current debate. We hope you will find articles in this issue that suit your preference.
The main themes in this issue are the management of atrial fibrillation and flutter in primary care and the role of long-acting beta agonists (LABA) in asthma management.
We are always pleased to receive your comments and suggestions.
