About our "Quarterly Focus" format

Publications in peer-reviewed journals are a major source for keeping up with the latest developments in your field. However, you may not always have sufficient time to study (difficult) publications thoroughly and to determine the impact on your clinical practice. To support you, MEDtalks Hematology has developed a new program format: the Quarterly Focus. This innovative program brings an expert panel and authors of relevant, selected publications together to explain and discuss the new data.
