December 12th: Zombie infections: epidemiology, treatment, and prevention

Have you always worried about the zombie apocalypse? Do you have a laminated copy of your zombie survival plan on the fridge?  Perhaps you are considering the investigating the undead as your research dissertation or thesis? December’s MedRadJClub was a festive chat about “walkers, Zed, Zs, biters, geeks, stiffs, roamers, Zeke, ghouls, rotters, Zoms, and runners”. December’s paper was Zombie infections: epidemiology, treatment, and prevention (T.Smith, BMJ, December 2015).

And because it’s Christmas – there were pressies! Thanks to Elsevier.

Themes:

1. As Health Professionals what steps can we take to help prevent the spread of infection?
2. If a vaccine is developed how can we encourage society-wide uptake?
3. What should our governments be doing to prepare for a potential zombie apocalypse?
4. What is your  own/your family’s ZAP (zombie apocalypse plan)?
