PURPOSE: To conduct a video vignette survey of medical students and doctors investigating test ordering for patients presenting with self-limiting or minor illness. METHODS: Participants were shown six video vignettes of common self-limiting illnesses and invited to devise investigation and management plans for the patients' current presentation. The number of tests ordered was compared with those recommended by an expert panel. A Theory of Planned Behaviour Questionnaire explored participants' beliefs and attitudes about ordering tests in the context of self-limiting illness...

INTRODUCTION: Proof of professional specific academic attainment is embedded within the Joint Committee on Surgical Training 2013 general surgery curriculum, mandating that all higher general surgical trainees (HST) obtain three peer-reviewed publications to qualify for Certification of Completion of Training. Yet, Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) has been associated with a trend away from the gold standard postgraduate credentials of higher degrees by research. This study aimed to evaluate the academic achievements of a post-MMC UK Deanery HST cohort to determine what additional benefits higher degree study might confer...

REVIEW
Mark Weatherall
Uncertainty in clinical encounters is inevitable and despite this uncertainty clinicians must still work with patients to make diagnostic and treatment decisions. Explicit diagnostic reasoning based on probabilities will optimise information in relation to uncertainty. In clinical diagnostic encounters, there is often pre-existing information that reflects the probability any particular patient has a disease. Diagnostic testing provides extra information that refines diagnostic probabilities. However, in general diagnostic tests will be positive in most, but not all cases of disease (sensitivity) and may not be negative in all cases of disease absence (specificity)...

INTRODUCTION: Use of the WHO surgical safety checklist is consistently recognised to reduce harm caused by human error during the perioperative period. Inconsistent engagement is considered to contribute to persistence of surgical Never Events in the National Health Service. Most medical and nursing graduates will join teams responsible for the perioperative care of patients, therefore appropriate undergraduate surgical safety training is needed. AIMS: To investigate UK medical and nursing undergraduate experience of the surgical safety checklist training...

REVIEW

Antipsychotics are a known cause of hyperprolactinaemia and can be associated with significant health issues in short term and long term. The effects vary with gender and age of the individual and can contribute towards non-concordance and hence relapse in mental health of our patients. Clinicians need to educate the patients about this significant side effect of not only antipsychotic medications but other medications causing hyperprolactinaemia commonly prescribed in primary care.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects about 50% of men in the USA and is primarily attributed to physiological (organic) and psychological causes. However, a substantial portion of men suffer from ED due to iatrogenic causes. Common medications such as antihypertensives, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and antacids may cause ED. Physicians should be aware of the various prescription medications that may cause ED to properly screen and counsel patients on an issue that many may feel too uncomfortable to discuss...

INTRODUCTION: Antithrombotic drugs are often stopped following acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (AUGIB) and frequently not restarted. The practice of antithrombotic discontinuation on discharge and its impact on outcomes are unclear. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether restarting antithrombotic therapy, prior to hospital discharge for AUGIB, affected clinical outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: University hospital between May 2013 and November 2014, with median follow-up of 259 days...

BACKGROUND: The transition from medical student to doctor is an important milestone. The discovery that their time is no longer their own and that the demands of their job are greater than the time they have available is extremely challenging. METHODS: At a recent surgical boot camp training programme, 60 first-year surgical trainees who had just completed their internship were invited to reflect on the lessons learnt regarding effective time management and to recommend tips for their newly qualified colleagues...

In 2012, we developed the St.Emlyn's blog, an open access resource dedicated to providing free education in the field of emergency medicine. OBJECTIVE: To describe the development and growth of this international emergency medicine blog. METHOD: We present a narrative description of the development of St.Emlyn's blog. Data on scope, impact and engagement were extracted from WordPress, Twitter and Google Analytics...
