By Dr Irwin Lim, Rheumatologist

With Great Power comes Great Responsibility

Stan Lee, the wordsmith. Spiderman, the willing but tortured hero.

Rheumatologists. Hmmm.

Not heroes yet but increasingly potent. Knowledge expanding, advances galore.

Must advocate. Must educate. GPs. Students. Other health professionals. The future health warriors. The public. Our own patients. Politicians. Bureaucracy!

Improve & innovate service delivery. Status quo not good enough.

Powerful knowledge, tools and therapies. More power to come but can we wield this wisely?

So, so much to do. Stick head in sand?

No. Time to don the suit & those nifty webshooters.
