#1
Daniel Jones, Laurie Dunn, Ian Watt, Una Macleod
BACKGROUND: Ensuring patient safety is vital in primary care. One mechanism to increase patient safety is through a practice known as safety netting. Safety netting is widely recommended in national guidelines; however, a variety of definitions exist with no consensus on when safety netting should be used and what advice or actions it should contain. AIM: This study aimed to identify different definitions of safety netting to provide conceptual clarity and propose a common approach to safety netting in primary care...

Flore Laforest, Pia Kirkegaard, Baljinder Mann, Adrian Edwards
BACKGROUND: A growing demand for cancer genetic services has led to suggestions for the involvement of GPs. How, and in which conditions, they can be involved, and whether there are important barriers to implementation should be ascertained. AIM: To review the tools available, clinician attitudes and experiences, and the effects on patients of genetic cancer risk assessment in general practice. DESIGN AND SETTING: Systematic review of papers published worldwide between 1996 and 2017...

DESIGN AND SETTING: This qualitative interview study was conducted with Dutch females who smoked, had undergone cervical screening, and were aged 30 to 60 years...

John Travers, Roman Romero-Ortuno, Jade Bailey, Marie-Therese Cooney
BACKGROUND: Recommendations for routine frailty screening in general practice are increasing as frailty prevalence grows. In England, frailty identification became a contractual requirement in 2017. However, there is little guidance on the most effective and practical interventions once frailty has been identified. AIM: To assess the comparative effectiveness and ease of implementation of frailty interventions in primary care. DESIGN AND SETTING: A systematic review of frailty interventions in primary care...

BACKGROUND: Nasal balloon autoinflation is an effective, non-surgical treatment for symptomatic children with glue ear, although uptake is variable and evidence about acceptability and feasibility is limited. AIM: To explore parent and healthcare professional views and experiences of nasal balloon autoinflation for children with glue ear in primary care. DESIGN AND SETTING: Qualitative study using semi-structured interviews with a maximum-variety sample of parents, GPs, and practice nurses...

BACKGROUND: Neither the incidence of indications for childhood tonsillectomy nor the proportion of tonsillectomies that are evidence-based is known. AIM: To determine the incidence of indications for tonsillectomy in UK children, and the proportion of tonsillectomies meeting evidence-based criteria.

#10
Melissa Stepney, Paul Aveyard, Rachna Begh
BACKGROUND: Reports from royal colleges and organisations such as Public Health England suggest that GPs and nurses should advise patients to switch to electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) if they do not want to stop smoking using licensed medication. However, there are no data on what practitioners think, feel, or do about e-cigarettes. AIM: To explore practitioners' perceptions and attitudes towards e-cigarettes, and their experiences of discussing e-cigarettes with patients...
