Why a (Virtual) Medical Journal Club is for you and how to make it work

We try to keep ourselves up-to-date with the latest research by participating in a weekly journal club, but our meetings don't exactly go like this :)
Attendees Instructions 

♦ To ask a question: Use the Chat Box at any time or use “Raise Hand” feature when you have the opportunity to speak. The volume of questions may prevent a personal response to your question.

♦ To make a comment: Use “Raise Hand” Feature and The moderator will call you to speak when possible

♦ Attendees should remember that the primary goal is not to critique the article, but rather to engage of discussions around the value of available evidence to theory and practice.

♦ Ensure that your microphone is muted. Only unmute if you have been given the floor to speak. After you have finished, please mute your microphone again.

♦ Attendees should turn off video to improve the performance. You can turn on the video if you are invited to speak.

♦ Attendees should stay on mute when you are not talking. If background noise is an issue, mute those on the call who are not talking.
