This month we are introducing a new section to the journal, its title being self‐explanatory. We aim to provide three questions on discrete themes each month with the answers available elsewhere in the journal. We hope to offer some challenges and, dare we say it, even mild entertainment for the readers of Emergency Medicine Journal. However, this does not mean that the questions or topics covered will be frivolous.
The questions are being published informally—that is, they are not linked to a continuing professional development or medical education (CPD or CME) programme of any institution or organisation. Perhaps in time linkages will develop, as indeed we hope the format and content will also evolve and change. We welcome your comments and feedback.
We thank Gavin Lloyd for agreeing to be the coordinator and lead for this new project, which is based on an original idea from him.
