This is a new aspect to the SMJ society that we are trying out for the first time this year.

This time, our esteemed Editor-in-Chief, Eoin Kelleher, will be leading the discussion.
The meeting will be held on March 13, 2013 at 6pm. The article to be discussed is entitled “Reboxetine for acute treatment of major depression: systematic review and meta-analysis of published and unpublished placebo and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor controlled trials.” The article can be accessed through the BMJ and also here.
