BACKGROUND: Strategies have been developed for use in primary care to identify patients at risk of declining health and dying, yet little is known about the perceptions of doing so or the broader implications and impacts. AIM: To explore the acceptability and implications of using a primary care-based electronic medical record algorithm to help providers identify patients in their practice at risk of declining health and dying. DESIGN AND SETTING: Qualitative descriptive study in Ontario and Nova Scotia, Canada...

Charlotte Albury, Elizabeth Stokoe, Sue Ziebland, Helena Webb, Paul Aveyard
BACKGROUND: Guidelines encourage GPs to make brief opportunistic interventions to support weight loss. However, GPs fear that starting these discussions will lead to lengthy consultations. Recognising that patients are committed to take action could allow GPs to shorten brief interventions. AIM: To examine which patient responses indicated commitment to action, and the time saved if these had been recognised and the consultation closed sooner. DESIGN AND SETTING: A mixed-method cohort study of UK primary care patients participating in a trial of opportunistic weight management interventions...

BACKGROUND: Direct access (DA) testing allows GPs to refer patients for investigation without consulting a specialist. The aim is to reduce waiting time for investigations and unnecessary appointments, enabling treatment to begin without delay. AIM: To establish the proportion of patients diagnosed with cancer and other diseases through DA testing, time to diagnosis, and suitability of DA investigations. DESIGN AND SETTING: Systematic review assessing the effectiveness of GP DA testing in adults...

BACKGROUND: Few randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have evaluated the different recalling approaches for enhancing adherence to faecal immunochemical test (FIT)-based screening. AIM: The authors evaluated the effectiveness of two telecommunication strategies on improving adherence to yearly FIT screening. DESIGN AND SETTING: A randomised, parallel group trial was performed in a primary care screening practice. METHOD: The authors recruited 629 asymptomatic individuals aged 40-70 years with a negative FIT in 2015 to a population-based screening programme...

Constantinos Koshiaris, Ann Van den Bruel, Jason L Oke, Brian D Nicholson, Elizabeth Shephard, Mick Braddick, William Hamilton
BACKGROUND: Multiple myeloma is a haematological cancer characterised by numerous non-specific symptoms leading to diagnostic delay in a large proportion of patients. AIM: To identify which blood tests are useful in suggesting or excluding a diagnosis of myeloma. DESIGN AND SETTING: A matched case-control study set in UK primary care using routinely collected data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink. METHOD: Symptom prevalence and blood tests were analysed up to 5 years before diagnosis in 2703 cases and 12 157 matched controls...

Alice Sibelli, Rona Moss-Morris, Trudie Chalder, Felicity L Bishop, Sula Windgassen, Hazel Everitt
BACKGROUND: Previous studies have identified issues with the doctor-patient relationship in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that negatively impact symptom management. Despite this, little research has explored interactions between GPs and patients with refractory IBS. National guidelines suggest cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) as a treatment option for refractory symptoms. AIM: To explore perceptions of interactions with GPs in individuals with refractory IBS after receiving CBT for IBS or treatment as usual (TAU)...

BACKGROUND: The impact of antimicrobial resistance on clinical outcomes in patients with lower respiratory tract infection in primary care is largely unknown. AIM: To determine the illness course of infections with resistant bacteria in adults presenting to primary care with acute cough. DESIGN AND SETTING: Secondary analysis of a multicentre European trial in primary care. METHOD: A total of 2061 adults with acute cough (lasting ≤28 days) were recruited from primary care and randomised to amoxicillin or placebo...

Lianne Hermans, Tim Olde Hartman, Patrick W Dielissen
BACKGROUND: Empathy has positive effects on a range of healthcare outcomes. It is therefore an important skill for a GP. However, the correlation between GP perception of delivered empathy and patient perception of GP empathic communication during consultations is still unclear. AIM: To investigate the correlation between GP perception of delivered empathy and patient-perceived empathy. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross-sectional study in primary care in the Netherlands, between December 2016 and February 2017...

Evi Germeni, Julia Frost, Ruth Garside, Morwenna Rogers, Jose M Valderas, Nicky Britten
BACKGROUND: Reducing unnecessary prescribing remains a key priority for tackling the global rise of antibiotic-resistant infections. AIM: The authors sought to update a 2011 qualitative synthesis of GPs' experiences of antibiotic prescribing for acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs), including their views of interventions aimed at more prudent prescribing. They expanded the original scope to encompass all primary care professionals (PCPs) who can prescribe or dispense antibiotics for ARTIs (for example, nurses and pharmacists)...
