PURPOSE OF STUDY: To demonstrate a model for delivery of an international surgical training event, and demonstrate its educational and economic outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: The Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) ran a course series on 16 January 2016 across the UK and Ireland. A mandatory, self-reported, online questionnaire collected delegate feedback, using 5-point Likert Scales, and a NetPromoter feedback tool. Precourse and postcourse matched questionnaires were collected for 'Foundation Skills in Surgery' (FSS) courses...

Individuals who regularly visit a primary care provider (PCP) may not see a dentist, creating opportunities for PCPs to improve oral health. However, a lack of expertise among PCPs may limit their impact to improve public oral health. Using a non-systematic literature review, this article summarises the relevant literature about periodontitis. Periodontitis affects 10% to -15% of the world's population. Caused by bacterial inflammation in gingival pockets, periodontal disease can destroy tissues surrounding the teeth...

OBJECTIVE: Meta-analysis was used to assess the clinical efficacy of acupuncture treatment for simple obesity and to provide evidence-based medical data for treating obesity with acupuncture. METHODS: A comprehensive search of studies on MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and Chinese databases (Wan Fang,CNKI and VIP) from 1 January 1915 through 30 November 2015 (MEDLINE search updated through 31 December 2015) was performed. We included only randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that used acupuncture and sham acupuncture to treat simple obesity...

BACKGROUND: The post mortem examination or autopsy is a trusted method of identifying the cause of death. Patients and their families may oppose an autopsy for a variety of reasons, including fear of mutilation or owing to religious and personal beliefs. Imaging alternatives to autopsy have been explored, which may provide a viable alternative. OBJECTIVE: To explore the possibility of using MRI virtopsy to establish the cause of death as an alternative to the traditional post mortem examination or autopsy...

BACKGROUND: In patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), loss of immunological tolerance to self-nuclear antigens and abnormal activation of self-reactive T and B cells lead to self-antibodies and immune complex production. The autoreactive lymphocytes are removed by the apoptotic process in healthy individuals; however, apoptosis disruption could cause accumulation of apoptotic bodies and nuclear debris. Therefore, apoptosis plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases...

PURPOSE: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn's disease (CD) often coexist in the same patient and these diseases have remarkably strong overlaps in genetic association. The association between Unc51like kinase 1 (ULK1) gene polymorphisms and CD has been reported, and the aim of the current study was to investigate whether ULK1 polymorphisms are also associated with susceptibility to AS in the Chinese Han population. METHODS: Five tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms in the ULK1 gene (rs9652059, rs11616018, rs12303764, rs4964879 and rs7300908) were genotyped by the improved multiplex ligase detection reaction method in a cohort of patients with AS (n=649) and controls (n=628)...

PURPOSE: Most residency programmes do not have a formal high value care curriculum. Our goal was to design and implement a multidisciplinary high value care curriculum specifically targeted at interns. DESIGN: Our curriculum was designed with multidisciplinary input from attendings, fellows and residents at Stanford. Curricular topics were inspired by the American Board of Internal Medicine's Choosing Wisely campaign, Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine, American College of Physicians and Society of Hospital Medicine...

BACKGROUND: Junior doctors have been found to suffer from high levels of burnout. AIMS: To measure burnout in a population of junior doctors in Ireland and identify if: levels of burnout are similar to US medical residents; there is a change in the pattern of burnout during the first year of postgraduate clinical practice; and burnout is associated with self-reported error. METHODS: The Maslach Burnout Inventory-Human Services Survey was distributed to Irish junior doctors from five training networks in the last quarter of 2015 when they were approximately 4 months into their first year of clinical practice (time 1), and again 6 months later (time 2)...

REVIEW

The incidence of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) is on the rise in the UK. Patients with NETs need to be managed by a team of clinical specialties. There are a number of challenging gastrointestinal (GI) manifestations related to NETs that can occur in these patients, but a limited literature base exists to guide clinicians.Whilst life expectancy can be several years for patients with NETs, the GI symptoms can have a significant impact on their quality of life. It is therefore imperative to be familiar with the common GI manifestations associated with NETs, so symptoms can be appropriately managed with an overall aim of restoring the patient's quality of life...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: There are limited studies on medication errors in South Asian and South East Asian regions. To bridge this gap, we assessed prescribing errors and selected medicine administration errors among inpatients, and the level of acknowledgement of prescribing errors by specialist physicians in a resource-limited hospital setting. STUDY DESIGN: The study was conducted in two medical wards of a hospital in Sri Lanka. Prescribing errors were identified among medicines prescribed in the latest prescription of randomly selected inpatients...
