Parallel consulting method: student and tutor evaluation in general practice
This study aimed to evaluate the PCM and whether it helped students develop consultation, clinical and clinical reasoning skills. The study was based at the Oxford University Primary Care Department. Penultimate clinical year students (n = 63) were recruited to take part in this mixed methods study. Students completed a questionnaire with closed and open-ended questions rating the PCM. A focus group explored questionnaire themes. GP tutors completed a questionnaire about the PCM and the logistics of delivering it. Three tutors took part in semi-structured interviews. The PCM helped develop students' consulting, and clinica...

Epub 2021 Jan 26.ABSTRACTChurg-Strauss syndrome (CCS) or eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis is a rare condition, which is a challenge for both diagnosis and treatment in clinical work. Occurrences of cardiac complications represent a negative predictor of treatment outcome for these patients. The aim of this article is to present the diagnostic and therapeutic modality of a 33-year-old male diagnosed with? CCS. Treatment of these patients should be multidisciplinary, with a comprehensive therapeutic modality, while early diagn...

Clinical placements in General Practice: concepts and considerations of implementing remote virtual placements in the COVID world
This article describes some of the approaches that enable remote (home) virtual patient encounters in Primary Care for medical students. These are categorised as methods that a) enable remote access into GP clinical systems, b) enable remote access into individual patient consultations and c) enable an observational-only experience. Key considerations are highlighted to enable safe and effective implementation of remote virtual consultations, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each method. These include patient consent, confidentiality, data sharing and protection, professionalism, student agreements and data g...

While both students and educators have now somewhat settled into new teaching methods, from Zoom™ lectures to online tutorials, the adaption of clinical skills teaching to the virtual setting has lagged behind. As a result, many students have been left feeling anxious and concerned about practicing practical and communication skills that are central to being a competent and safe docto...

NPJ Prim Care Respir Med. 2021 Apr 1;31(1):18. doi: 10.1038/s41533-021-00230-2.ABSTRACTA Cochrane review of school-based asthma interventions (combining all ages) found improved health outcomes. Self-management skills, however, vary according to age. We assessed effectiveness of primary school-based self-management interventions and identified components associated with successful programmes in children aged 6-12 years. We updated the Cochrane search (March 2020) and included the Global Health database. Two reviewers screened, assessed risk-of-bias and extracted data. We included 23 studies (10,682 participants); four at l...

Phone triage nurses' assessment of respiratory tract infections - the tightrope walk between gatekeeping and service providing. A qualitative study

They need skills and time to reach a consensus with the callers and guide them to the right level of health care. This should be considered when planning nurse training and staffing of out-of-hours cooperatives.KEY-POINTSPhone triage nurses assess callers to the out-of-hours service and estimate the level of urgencyThis study explores how phone triage nurses assess callers with respiratory tract infections and their views and experiences on this taskThe nurses describe their professional role as a tightrope walk between ga...
