How it works

In each issue of the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, the Journal Club selects an article or articles and provide discussion questions. We encourage you to post a summary of your responses to these materials.

ACAM Fellow can access the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy via the member area of the ACAM website.

A) Discussion Questions

The discussion questions can be used to stimulate reflection and conversation. In particular, these questions are designed to help journal club participants, a) identify key points addressed by the article, and put them in context, b) discuss the scientific validity of the findings, and c) consider how the findings apply to practice, policy, education or research. The current selection(s) (above) and previous selections (below) include article citation(s), discussion tips, and discussion questions.

B) Online Discussion

The ACAM Online Journal Club is a way for you to share insights and conversation themes with other journal club members. After reading an article in the nominated journal, we ask you to consider summarising your responses and post a comment.
