A Colclough, P Nihoyannopoulos
BACKGROUND: Acute breathlessness accounts for 8% of accident and emergency attendances. Point-of-care cardiac ultrasound (US) effectively reduces time to diagnosis. Fast and practical information via pocket-sized cardiac US devices may better the diagnosis in this complex patient group. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 40 consecutive patients presenting with shortness of breath at the emergency department (ED). Divided into two groups were all adult patients over 18 with acute breathing difficulties (triage category 1-3): 21 patients received a short focused cardiac US scan using a pocket-sized Vscan and 19 patients received no scan...

The importance of emotions within medical practice is well documented. Research suggests that how clinicians deal with negative emotions can affect clinical decision-making, health service delivery, clinician well-being, attentiveness to patient care and patient satisfaction. Previous research has identified the transition from student to junior doctor (intern) as a particularly challenging time. While many studies have highlighted the presence of emotions during this transition, how junior doctors manage emotions has rarely been considered...

BACKGROUND: The majority of research studies on medical student attitudes toward psychiatry focus on influencing factors and the medical school experience. This study evaluates the effectiveness of a one-day visit to a high secure forensic psychiatric unit on medical students' attitudes towards psychiatry and also assesses career intentions and the factors influencing these. METHOD: Change in attitudes and career intention were measured by administering a questionnaire, which included the 30-item Attitudes Toward Psychiatry (ATP-30) survey, at the start (time 1) and end (time 2) of the one-day visit...

CONTEXT: Many individual- and job-related factors are known to influence medical careers decision making. Previous research has extensively studied medical trainees' (residents') and students' views of the factors that are important. However, how trainees and students trade off these factors at times of important careers-related decision making is under-researched. Information about trade-offs is crucial to the development of effective policies to enhance the recruitment and retention of junior doctors...

PURPOSE: Universities need to deliver educational programmes that create radiography graduates who are ready and able to participate in abnormality detection schemes, ultimately delivering safe and reliable performance because junior doctors are exposed to the risk of misdiagnosis if unsupported by other healthcare professionals. Radiographers are ideally suited to this role having the responsibility for conducting the actual X-ray examination. METHOD: The image interpretation performance of one cohort of student radiographers was measured upon enrolment from UCAS in the first week of university education and then again prior to graduation using RadBench (n = 23)...

BACKGROUND: Doctors at all levels make prescribing errors which can prolong patients' hospital stay, increase the risk of death, and place a significant financial burden on the health system. Doctors have previously reported receiving little or no feedback on their prescribing errors. The effectiveness of feedback in modifying future practice varies widely, depending on how feedback is delivered. To date there is little evidence about why and how feedback interventions do or do not work...

Medical Educators face an ongoing challenge in optimizing preparedness for practice for newly qualified doctors. Junior doctors have highlighted specific areas in which they do not feel adequately equipped to undertake their duties, including managing the acutely unwell patient. In these highly stressful, time-critical scenarios it might be assumed that a lack of knowledge underpins these feelings of apprehension from junior medics; however, having studied, trained and passed examinations to demonstrate such knowledge, perhaps other factors should be considered...

I am a young doctor who graduated from the Medical University of Silesia in 2014. After 13 months of postgraduate training, passing a state examination and successful completion of the admission process I made a decision to specialise in Respiratory Medicine. I started working in a large clinical hospital that provides junior doctors with excellent opportunities for training and career development. The respiratory unit is highly specialised and deals with sleep-related medical problems, interstitial lung diseases and respiratory failure, which may be treated using noninvasive mechanical ventilation...

When I agreed to contribute a short piece about my experiences as a junior doctor in respiratory medicine I was spending the night on call at my workplace, the Department of Pulmonology, Semmelweis University. So it seemed pretty straightforward to write about my very recent journey through that night, including details to give you a general overview of my nights spent on call. I decided to write this essay the next morning, to ensure I would still be in the same mood.
