New columns to keep you stimulated

This week we launch Fast Forward (page 15), a fortnightly column that looks at issues that were making headlines on the front pages of MO 10 years ago, and the advances we have seen (or perhaps not seen) over the intervening decade. 

This week we also debut an in-depth look at the latest news by interviewing experts in the field. Each week, Behind the News (page 16) will ask leaders in medicine and politics to elaborate on topics making headlines.

And next week, MO will launch a third new column, Cautionary Tales, where GPs and others in the medical profession will tell stories of near or real medical disasters, and how they survived them – tales to enthrall, amaze and hopefully to learn from.
