When I was a young trainee, my mentor sat down and said to me the one thing you need
to remember is that things are going to change on a regular basis.

People are going to ask some questions about things that a GP doesn’t necessarily know much about yet. As an individual we simply cannot be across it all. 

A lot of changes to clinical practice has come about through clinical trials. Clinical trials on as pap smears, aspirin and vaccination have all made a difference and the outcomes from the breast cancer trials in the 80s are known worldwide and have made a huge impact on mortality and morbidity. 
Research and science has been able to deliver us better tools to deliver a better outcome.
