#1
Yazan Abdallah, Jonathan Briggs, Joshua Jones, Gregory Horne, Cheryl Fitzgerald
This survey examined the provision of fertility preservation for female oncology patients prior to cancer treatments, given their well-established gonadotoxic effects. Questionnaires were sent to all assisted conception units in the UK enquiring about the provision of oocyte or embryo cryopreservation, as well as funding for female oncology patients. In addition, data were obtained from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) on the number of cryopreservation cycles in 2013-2014. Of the 60 responding units, 53 (88%) offered fertility preservation...

The aetiology of fractures in patients aged 50 years and older is multifactorial, and includes bone- and fall-related risks. The Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) is recommended to identify patients with a recent fracture and to evaluate their subsequent fracture risk, in order to take measures to decrease the risk of subsequent fractures in patients with a high risk phenotype. A literature survey was conducted to describe components of the bone- and fall-related phenotype of patients attending the FLS. Components of the patient phenotype at the FLS have been reported in 33 studies...

Medical students matriculating in the coming years will be faced with treating an expansive increase in the population of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) patients. While these patients face healthcare concerns similar to their non-LGBT aging peers, the older LGBT community has distinct healthcare needs and faces well-documented healthcare disparities. In order to reduce these healthcare barriers, medical school curricula must prepare and educate future physicians to treat this population while providing high quality, culturally-competent care...
