This was a big deal though it seems to have gone radio silent recently. But the genie was out of the bottle and a number of specialties now run Twitter Journal Clubs:

…and tomorrow night, nephrology will join the fold with #NephJC

The first article for #NephJC is Educational programs improve the preparation for dialysis and survival of patients with chronic kidney disease.This retrospective trial shows that the CKD screening and early intervention program, KEEP improves dialysis prep and survival in dialysis. A summary of the article, the ground rules for the twitter chat, and the schedule for future journal clubs can be found at NephJC.com.
