In this challenging context, finding ways for GPs to manage that workload is imperative. AIM: To explore what existing or potential strategies are described by GPs for dealing with their workload, and their views on the relative merits of each. DESIGN AND SETTING: Semi-structured, qualitative interviews with GPs working within NHS England...

Patricia N Apenteng, Fd Richard Hobbs, Andrea Roalfe, Usman Muhammad, Carl Heneghan, David Fitzmaurice
BACKGROUND: Care home residents have venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk profiles similar to medical inpatients; however, the epidemiology of VTE in care homes is unclear. AIM: To determine the incidence of VTE in care homes. DESIGN AND SETTING: Observational cohort study of 45 care homes in Birmingham and Oxford, UK. METHOD: A consecutive sample of care home residents was enrolled and followed up for 12 months. Data were collected via case note reviews of care home and GP records; mortality information was supplemented with Health and Social Care Information Centre (now called NHS Digital) cause of death data...

BACKGROUND: The NHS Health Check programme completed its first 5 years in 2014, identifying those at highest risk of cardiovascular disease and new comorbidities, and offering behavioural change support and treatment. AIM: To describe the coverage and impact of this programme on cardiovascular risk management and identification of new comorbidities.

Katy Gordon, Helen Rice, Nick Allcock, Pamela Bell, Martin Dunbar, Steve Gilbert, Heather Wallace
BACKGROUND: Supported self-management is a recommended intervention for chronic pain. Effective self-management should enable an individual to reduce the impact of pain on their everyday life. Clinical guidelines suggest primary care services have a role to play in supporting self-management of chronic pain. AIM: To examine the opinions of primary care healthcare professionals (HCPs) and people with chronic pain and their carers, in order to identify possible barriers to the facilitation and adoption of self-management...

BACKGROUND: Arteriosclerotic disorders increase the risk of dementia. As they have common causes and risk factors, coronary heart disease (CHD) could influence the course of dementia. AIM: To determine whether CHD increases the speed of cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease, and to discuss the potential for secondary cardiovascular prevention to modify this decline. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective multicentre cohort study in general practices in six cities in Germany...

BACKGROUND: Symptoms of breathlessness, fatigue, and ankle swelling are common in general practice but deciding which patients are likely to have heart failure is challenging. AIM: To evaluate the performance of a clinical decision rule (CDR), with or without N-Terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) assay, for identifying heart failure. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective, observational, diagnostic validation study of patients aged >55 years, presenting with shortness of breath, lethargy, or ankle oedema, from 28 general practices in England...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about how smoking cessation practices in primary care differ for patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) who have different comorbidities. AIM: To determine the association between different patterns of comorbidity and smoking rates and smoking cessation interventions in primary care for patients with CHD. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross-sectional study of 81 456 adults with CHD in primary care in Scotland. METHOD: Details of eight concordant physical comorbidities, 23 discordant physical comorbidities, and eight mental health comorbidities were extracted from electronic health records between April 2006 and March 2007...
