#1
Sean Cowlishaw, Lone Gale, Alison Gregory, Jim McCambridge, David Kessler
BACKGROUND: Primary care is an important context for addressing health-related behaviours, and may provide a setting for identification of gambling problems. AIM: To indicate the extent of gambling problems among patients attending general practices, and explore settings or patient groups that experience heightened vulnerability. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross-sectional study of patients attending 11 general practices in Bristol, South West England...

Trevor W Lambert, Fay Smith, Michael J Goldacre
BACKGROUND: It is current UK policy to expand the numbers of newly qualified doctors entering training to become GPs, to meet increased demand. AIM: To report on trends in young doctors' views on the attractiveness of general practice as a career, compared with hospital practice. DESIGN AND SETTING: Questionnaire surveys in the UK. METHOD: Surveys of doctors, 3 years after graduation, conducted in successive year-of-qualification cohorts between 1999 and 2015...

#3
Catherine Marchand, Stephen Peckham
BACKGROUND: The numbers of GPs and training places in general practice are declining, and retaining GPs in their practices is an increasing problem. AIM: To identify evidence on different approaches to retention and recruitment of GPs, such as intrinsic versus extrinsic motivational determinants. DESIGN AND SETTING: Synthesis of qualitative and quantitative research using seven electronic databases from 1990 onwards (Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library, Health Management Information Consortium [HMIC], Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (Cinahl), PsycINFO, and the Turning Research Into Practice [TRIP] database)...

Lavanya Diwakar, Carole Cummins, Ronan Ryan, Tom Marshall, Tracy Roberts
BACKGROUND: Adrenaline auto-injectors (AAI) should be provided to individuals considered to be at high risk of anaphylaxis. There is some evidence that the rate of AAI prescription is increasing, but the true extent has not been previously quantified. AIM: To estimate the trends in annual GP-issued prescriptions for AAI among UK children between 2000 and 2012. DESIGN AND SETTING: Retrospective cohort study using data from primary care practices that contributed to The Health Improvement Network (THIN) database...

#5
Victoria S Hammersley, Jessica Harris, Aziz Sheikh, Emma Davidson, Samantha Walker
BACKGROUND: Consultations in primary care for allergies are common. It can be difficult to differentiate between IgE-mediated (atopic) symptoms - which respond to allergen-specific interventions - and those that are non-atopic, without performing objective tests that are largely unavailable in UK general practice. AIM: To develop and test a screening tool that can accurately discriminate between atopic and non-atopic individuals. DESIGN AND SETTING: A validation study that took place in 2012 in adult volunteers aged >16 years in Scotland...

#6
Tomás Barry, Jan Klimas, Helen Tobin, Mairead Egan, Gerard Bury
BACKGROUND: More than 200 opiate overdose deaths occur annually in Ireland. Overdose prevention and management, including naloxone prescription, should be a priority for healthcare services. Naloxone is an effective overdose treatment and is now being considered for wider lay use. AIM: To establish GPs' views and experiences of opiate addiction, overdose care, and naloxone provision. DESIGN AND SETTING: An anonymous postal survey to GPs affiliated with the Department of Academic General Practice, University College Dublin, Ireland...

#7
Hugh Alberti, Hannah L Randles, Alex Harding, Robert K McKinley
BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that the quantity of exposure to general practice teaching at medical school is associated with future choice of a career as a GP. AIM: To examine the relationship between general practice exposure at medical school and the percentage of each school's graduates appointed to a general practice training programme after foundation training (postgraduate years 1 and 2). DESIGN AND SETTING: A quantitative study of 29 UK medical schools...

#8
Samuel G Smith, Robbie Foy, Jennifer A McGowan, Lindsay C Kobayashi, Andrea de Censi, Karen Brown, Lucy Side, Jack Cuzick
BACKGROUND: The cancer strategy for England (2015-2020) recommends GPs prescribe tamoxifen for breast cancer primary prevention among women at increased risk. AIM: To investigate GPs' attitudes towards prescribing tamoxifen. DESIGN AND SETTING: In an online survey, GPs in England, Northern Ireland, and Wales (n = 928) were randomised using a 2 × 2 between-subjects design to read one of four vignettes describing a healthy patient seeking a tamoxifen prescription...

#9
Jessica Drinkwater, Nicky Stanley, Eszter Szilassy, Cath Larkins, Marianne Hester, Gene Feder
BACKGROUND: Domestic violence and abuse (DVA) and child safeguarding are interlinked problems, impacting on all family members. Documenting in electronic patient records (EPRs) is an important part of managing these families. Current evidence and guidance, however, treats DVA and child safeguarding separately. This does not reflect the complexity clinicians face when documenting both issues in one family. AIM: To explore how and why general practice clinicians document DVA in families with children...

#10
Vera Ec Debets, Theo Jm Verheij, Alike W van der Velden
BACKGROUND: Unnecessary and non-first-choice antibiotic prescribing is a significant problem in primary care. It is often argued that irrational prescribing is higher during out-of-hours (OOH) consultations. AIM: To obtain insight into the quantity and quality of OOH antibiotic prescribing for commonly presented infectious diseases. DESIGN AND SETTING: Two two-way comparisons of 1) nationally dispensed antibiotics during office hours and OOH care, using data from the Dutch Foundation of Pharmaceutical Statistics, and 2) regional prescribing quality data from 45 primary care practices from Utrecht and its vicinity, and two large OOH services in Utrecht and Woerden...
