Today’s Trivia




Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

    Link to 2. The paleo diet may not be so great as it can cause a loss of muscle mass.

    Is # 3 why Judith Dobson is still on the television? Any doctors following Whaleoil who can clarify exactly how annoying it is to have patients demanding specific brands?

    • Popliteal

      It’s annoying in three ways:

      1. If the drug isn’t subsidised, you have to scrape the patient up off the floor and fan them with a piece of paper till they recover from having been told the price.

      2. If it is subsidised you can usually steer them to an older drug by a full explanation of the safety information we don’t yet have on the new drug. Sometimes though the advertised drug can be an appropriate choice, especially if the patient is intolerant to the subsidised options and needs treatment.

      3. It wastes time. People pay for 15 minutes of consultation time, and the time spent discussing the drug is a waste of their resources.

      And yes, it is almost always a total pita.
