Health Effects of Second Hand Smoke
A new online course for physicians to help them assess the health effects of second hand tobacco smoke on children’s health has been made available by the World Medical Association.
Tuberculosis and Multi Drug Resistant Tuberculosis
The course is available alongside the recently updated WMA learning programme for multi drug resistant tuberculosis guidelines.
Medical Ethics Manual
WMA was today issuing the third edition of its Medical Ethics Manual, as well as launching its translation into Slovenian.
