Can we learn more from our patients than you might think? Do they hold the answers to the clinical question that you face? Dr. Osman Ahmed @osmanhahmed is an Associate Editor at BJSM, co-leading the “Patient Voices” section of the journal alongside Dr. Tracey Blake @tracyablake. Osman discusses how we can engage our patients/athletes to improve the clinical applicability of our research, and highlights some areas of medicine that have already benefited from this approach.
