Medicine Interview

Thread Starter Medicine Interview Follow 1 hour ago 1 hour ago Hi, I've got an interview coming up next week, however I've been feeling very ill which has led me to have a sore throat and a really bad cough which I'm worried may affect my interview performance. Is it possible to use this as a valid reason to reschedule the interview?

Informing patients about the self-limited nature of the common cold can help manage expectations, limit antibiotic use, and avoid over-the-counter purchases that may not help. Treatments with proven effectiveness for cold symptoms in adults include over-the-counter analgesics, zinc, nasal decongestants with or without antihistamines, and ipr...

I recently encountered an article that quantifies the resources expended by unnecessary patient visits to emergency departments (EDs) (see:Diverting avoidable emergency department visits could save healthcare $32 billion annually).

Below is an excerpt from the article:Diverting avoidable emergency department visits could save healthcare $32 billion annually. Primary care services rendered by hospital EDs come with substantially higher price tags than in primary care settings. Avoidable visits to emergency department...

A large cross-sectional study of UK prescribing data found that the duration of antibiotic prescriptions for common infections in primary care frequently exceeded national guideline recommendations. The most common reason for antibiotic prescribing was for respiratory infections, and more than 80% of prescriptions for acute cough and bronchitis, acute sore throat, acute otitis media and acute exacerbations of COPD were for longer than recommended. Substantial reductions in antibiotic exposure can be achieved by prescribing antibiotics in line with NICE and Public Health England guidance on managing common infections.
