Afterwards, the PAPEI Journal Club will meet to discuss a systematic review on the use of TXA (see citation below, article and checklist emailed with RSVP). We'll move to a more comfortable location, bar1911, where we'll keep the discussion light and informal. I've attached some literature and a checklist to help you with the appraisal process (RSVP).
