Gaming Disorder

In Mandarin by my good friend Associate Professor Dr Anne Yee.

Now I admit I listened to it for 10 minutes, but due to my limited (very) and slow pick up of Mandarin I was lost for most of this conservation apart from when Dr Anne mentioned “tui” or correct but for what – I am unsure 😂.

Do listen and find out and maybe some one will be able to tell me.

For my trainees, a good revision on this new issue which we have seen in clinic and the ward in recent times.
