13. “… The Germans dumped a young Soviet prisoner in my ward late one night. The ward was full, so I put him in my room as he was moribund and screaming and I did not want to wake the ward … He had obvious gross bilateral cavitation and a severe pleural rub. I thought the latter was the cause of the pain and the screaming. I had no morphia, just aspirin, which had no effect … I felt desperate … I finally instinctively sat down on the bed and took him in my arms, and the screaming stopped almost at once. He died peacefully in my arms a few hours later. It was not the pleurisy that caused the screaming but loneliness. It was a wonderful education about the care of the dying. I was ashamed of my misdiagnosis and kept the story secret.” Archie Cochrane, (1989). One Man's Medicine. London: BMJ ARCHIE ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS?

15. Good balance between T&R Teaching and research in universities must be inseparable if their tuition is not to lag behind changing needs, the demands of society, and advances in scientific knowledge. (Magna Charta Universitatum, Bologna, 1988). At their best universities are places where knowledge is generated, challenged, tested as well as being taught. To do otherwise is to short change our students, funders and communities. Research Teaching
