Welcome to Green Cannula!
This is the infancy stages of what we hope will be something incredible!
What is Green Cannula?
Medicine is a fast-moving profession. While textbooks are great for learning, they move too slowly to be of use in a clinical setting, with many becoming out of date before they're even published.
Clinical guidelines are great, but no-one has time to a 97 page osteoporosis guideline from NICE.
During my clinical practice, what I've always wanted was a constantly updated source, covering every subject, which I could look at to give myself a starting point if I found myself needing guidance.
I'm sure, that like me, you've found yourself turning to Wikipedia as your first port of call for diseases you don't know anything about. Wikipedia is great, but it isn't written with clinical practice in mind.
So this is the answer! Lean, fast-moving, always up-to-date information, with none of the extortionate fees of other online services.
To create a freely accessible, freely editable medical encyclopaedia, which provides practical guidance to medical students and junior doctors.
We're aiming to go live on September 1st 2017, ready for the new academic year.
What can you do?
