Interactive and multimedia methods are the future, already developing in teaching and learning modules in Medicine. It happens and has to happen because: 1) It improves tools for the teacher in preparing and showing the bulk of materials on which students must study and learn; it enables interactivity with learners both in formative pathway and in final assessment. 2) It improves attention, interest and involvement of students and learners, and acts as a guideline to progressive broadening in researches, studies, considerations, and information exchanges among different learners...

Childhood obesity has been prioritised by the World Health Organization in a recent report, which calls for a holistic multiagency approach to tackling and reducing future risks of obesity and its associated co-morbidities. This article examines a health service approach to improving recognition and management of pre-school nutritional problems as part of training health care professionals. It explores the practicalities of setting up a local pathway for managing cases in the community with appropriate specialist support...

REVIEW
Jia Xuan Tan, Maria Lourdes Restrepo Fajardo
Background: Antisocial behaviour and conduct disorders are the most common behavioural and mental health problems in children and young people globally. An efficacious intervention is needed to manage these antisocial behaviours that have costly consequences. Multisystemic Therapy (MST), an intensive home-based intervention for youths with psychosocial and behavioural problems, is recommended under National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines for conduct disorder. However, reviews on the efficacy of MST are mixed...

This paper reviews parenting programmes and their effectiveness with families of young children and highlights additional resources for primary care practitioners. Typically, 30% of GP consultations concern child behaviour problems and established behaviour problems can have lasting effects on children's life chances. These problems can be identified in infancy and toddlerhood.Parenting is a key risk factor in their development and maintenance, yet is also amenable to change. In this paper we consider six parenting programmes that are widely evaluated and/or available in the U...

The concept of 'beginner's mind' invites the expert medical professional to be present to their patients, remaining curious and responsive in the face of the individuality of illness. Each patient is a universe of unknowns, presenting with suffering which cannot always be classified with a diagnosis. Improvisation and openness may not just benefit our patients enduring their patient journeys but may also revive and reconnect us with our own humanity. Why this matters to me: My experience as cancer patient brought home to me the value of encountering a doctor who was present and able to listen and respond to me as an individual...

REVIEW
S Basetti, J Hodgson, T M Rawson, A Majeed
There has been an increase in the incidence of scarlet fever with most cases presenting in General Practice and Emergency Departments. Cases present with a distinctive macro-papular rash, usually in children. This article aims to increase awareness of scarlet fever by highlighting key symptoms and stating potential complications if untreated. In patients who have the typical symptoms, a prescription of a suitable antibiotic such as phenoxymethylpenicillin (Penicillin V) should be made immediately to reduce the risk of complications and the spread of infection...

Neuropathy is a common complication which can affect up to 90% of patients with diabetes mellitus. Asymptomatic neuropathy is a common presentation. We present a case that emphasises the importance of foot screening in people with diabetes. It also highlights that patient education is key to prevent development of foot ulceration which can lead to amputations. In addition, pharmacological therapy (as per NICE guidance) can be offered for pain relief. Patients with diabetic neuropathy are at high risk of falling and sustaining fractures...

BACKGROUND: Despite invaluable national data, reasons for the relentless rise in England's emergency department (ED) attendances remain elusive. SETTING: All EDs and general practices in England. QUESTION: Are rising ED attendances related to general practice patient satisfaction, i.e. if patients are unable to get a convenient appointment with their general practitioner (GP), then do they attend their local ED for diagnosis, treatment and care instead? METHOD: GP patient satisfaction and ED attendance data were extracted from national data warehouses and organised into two groups: (i) England clinical commissioning group (CCG) areas and (ii) a London CCG subset...

BACKGROUND: The cost-effectiveness of the traditional outpatient model for specialist care provision is increasingly being questioned in view of the changing patient needs, workforce challenges and technological advances. SETTING: This report summarises two RCGP London events showcasing new ways of delivering care for long-term conditions. QUESTIONS: What are the alternative approaches to the traditional outpatient model and do they have common themes? What are the challenges and opportunities of these new models of care? METHODS: Presentation of examples of new ways of long-term condition care delivery and round-table facilitative discussion and reflection on the challenges and solutions around service re-design and implementation, the commissioning and funding of new models of care, the facilitation of system-wide learning and the collection of data for evaluation...

The relevance of the arts to medical practice is not always immediately apparent. Here, three examples are given from literature, visual arts and music which demonstrate links not normally found in medical texts.

Malcolm Torry
Religion is increasingly significant in UK society, and is highly significant for many patients and primary care practitioners. An important task for the practitioner is to ensure that the place of religion in the patient/practitioner relationship is treated with the same ethical seriousness as every other aspect of that relationship. The article finds the 'four principles of biomedical ethics' to be applicable, and recent GMC guidelines to be consistent with the four principles. The article applies the four principles to the particular case of practitioners wearing religious symbolism...

The prevalence of diabetes is higher amongst individuals infected with HIV. The major contributor to hyperglycaemia is thought to be iatrogenic, with protease inhibitors being most commonly associated to insulin resistance. This article is to update general practitioners on the diagnosis and management of diabetes in HIV-infected patients. Specific considerations are highlighted including interactions of particular diabetic drugs with antiretroviral therapy (ART). We articulate why the use of Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) testing is not recommended as a diagnostic tool...

Palliative care provision varies by diagnosis, geography, and setting. The Minimum Data-set provides high-level data on provision, but comprehensive comparative information about specialist palliative care (SPC) provision is lacking. The London Cancer Alliance - now RM Partners' Accountable Cancer Network - palliative care group (West/South London) and PallE8 (North/East London), with Marie Curie, sought to address this gap. The aim was to provide comparative data on SPC provision across London to support commissioners and providers to assess provision, identify gaps, and reduce inequity...

BACKGROUND: The challenge of keeping Emergency Department (ED) attendances down continues and timely access to general practice (GP) is often portrayed as a potential solution. SETTING: One London general practice (registered population = 4900). QUESTION: Does seeing a GP before attending the ED affect the outcome of a patient's ED care? METHODS: Routine clinical data were extracted using SystmOne primary care computer system for all registered patients with an ED attendance between 1 October 2014 and 31 September 2015...
