The November–December issue of BJHM includes editorials looking at the future and importance of ergonomics in orthopaedics, and a call for increased awareness of safety as this affects both patients and clinicians. Our reviews include a pair of articles looking at the importance of recognising autistic people within healthcare, both when treating them and also if they are colleagues, and how to make reasonable adjustments to help to ensure that these people receive equitable care, as well as an article outlining the dangers of recreational inhalation of nitrous oxide, and the output of a roundtable discussion about how we can optimise the care and quality of life of people with cystic fibrosis.
The education and training article looks at the impact of virtual medical student surgical conferences.
Case reports include a patient with a cerebrospinal fluid leak following a COVID-19 nasopharyngeal swab, and one on thyrotoxic periodic paralysis presenting as a broad complex tachycardia, with many more included online.
