These audio podcasts are designed to be used by GPs and GP trainees as a learning tool. They are intended to be relevant, accurate and accessible. The aim is to address the clinical and ethical queries which GPs have on a daily basis. The answers are the speakers opinions and not necessarily representative of all GPs. There is rarely one best management alone. The discussions generally refer to options and choices rather than single correct paths. As there are regional variations in first line prescription choices for some medical conditions, it is important to check your local formulary. Where applicable we have endeavoured to explain that the guidance being discussed is true for Swindon PCT but may vary in other areas. With regard to discussed practice, that quoted is the speakers practice at the time of publishing, guidance can change and the podcasts could go out of date. For this reason, each podcast is labelled with a published date. If you have an idea or even a question which you would like discussed then please get in touch via www.swindongpeducation.co.uk These podcasts and references to other sites provide general information for educational purposes only. They are intended for healthcare professionals. The target audience includes established GP's and GP trainees. The aim is to explore management options for common presentations or challenges in General Practice, this is done using interviews, cases and summaries. The podcasts are not designed to and do not provide patients with medical advice, professional diagnosis, opinion, treatment or services. If you believe you have any other health problem, or if you have any questions regarding your health or a medical condition, you should promptly consult your physician or other healthcare provider.

You should also ask your physician or other healthcare provider to assist you in interpreting any information in this Site or in the linked websites, or in applying the information to your individual case. There are often several valid approaches to medical cases in General practice and the outlined recordings aim to represent the general approach which may be taken rather than exclusive or exhaustive management options.

Rank #2: 13: Let's talk about e-cigarettes .
A survey by Cancer Research in 2017 found that 20% of general practitioners never discuss e-cigarettes with their patients and a further 25% discussed them occasionally. Further to this, many GPs are unsure of what they should be saying in relation to e-cigarettes. This podcast based on the RCGP position statement on e-cigarettes, features the Cancer Research UK CRUK prevention lead, Professor Linda Bauld, and Dr Richard Roope, RCGP and CRUK Cancer Clinical Champion, addressing key concerns which GPs have voiced about e-cigarettes. They also share the evidence behind the RCGP position statement. We hope you found this podcast useful. Please take one minute to tell us what you think by completing this short feedback survey.

Rank #2: Podcast | Quiet please.
The Royal Opera House orchestra was rehearsing Die Walküre. For more than three hours violist Chris Goldscheider sat in front of twenty brass players belting out Wagner at 90dB. His hearing was permanently damaged. The Opera House argued that artistic standards took precedence over the risk of acoustic shock, but the courts thought otherwise and awarded Goldscheider substantial damages. A musician’s job is to create sound. Rock musicians ramp up the amplifiers and often lose their hearing temporarily after a particularly loud concert. Many don’t acknowledge the warning. Over time, even violinists can lose 6dB of hearing in their left ear. Many publicans and restaurateurs foster sound. They rip out partitions, strip out soft furnishings and turn up the music. Chatter turns to shouting and then to screaming, and by the time the sound level is 90dB – that’s the same as a pneumatic drill – they have created the vibe they think their clientele enjoy. At least that’s what many of them told Action on Hearing Loss. I wonder. You can’t pour your heart out, or even chat to your mates, against a wall of sound. When a bartender brings a legal case for acoustic damage, publicans may think again. "Noise affects patient care. If staff are distracted or unable to clearly hear information or instructions, lives are at risk." Silence is elusive. Over four days, walking along the Thames path from its source to Oxford, we were out of the sound of traffic for just half an hour. Military jets scream over the remote Highlands and police helicopters clatter over secluded corners of Regents Park. Libraries now entertain kids singing nursery rhymes, art galleries display video installations, and the espresso machine thumps and grinds in cafes where people go to read and work. Who cares Hospital calm? Gone are the days! Machines, phones, bleeps, call bells (left unanswered because they’re short-staffed), crashing trolleys, long visiting hours with noisy families . . . the noise level in ITU can be over 100dB. Noise affects patients. A Swedish study found that loud environments triggered more re-admissions. More hypnotics are prescribed. Patients self-discharge to get a good night’s sleep. Noise affects patient care. If staff are distracted or unable to clearly hear information or instructions, lives are at risk. Noise affects us all. Raised blood pressure, increased risk of cardiovascular problems, poor sleep and its attendant consequences, low birth-weight, obesity, diabetes and cognitive impairment . . . these are some of the consequences. My worst experience of noise was in Santiago de Cuba. The ancient, grinding engines of trucks and buses which had long lost their exhaust silencers woke us at dawn and deafened us until nightfall. We found relief at a cliff-top café. There was a pervasive smell of drains but, like most people, we could put up with pollution better than noise. Nearly 2000 years ago Juvenal listed noise as one of the seven plagues of Rome (along with high rents and fashionistas). Victorians were assailed by the hawkers’ cries, wooden clogs on the cobbles, clattering carts – rubber tyres were a late 19th century innovation. Now, noise has been weaponised. In Guantanamo it’s been used as an instrument of torture. Holed up in the Vatican nunciature, Panamanian leader General Noriega didn’t surrender until the CIA blared rock music into the building. (You can hear it on YouTube). In contrast, shopping malls broadcast Beethoven to see off hooligan loiterers. Our valuation of noise is very subjective and poorly related to the damage it does, which is determined by its acoustic intensity and how long we are exposed to it. The decibel scale is logarithmic, so a 70dB sound is ten times more intense than 60dB. The safe exposure time for a 90dB lawnmower is two hours; for 100dB it is 15 minutes. And we live in an environment full of 100dB noises. With earbuds you can escape from the cacophony of the street into your own soundworld. It isn’t safe, though. That constant exposure is building up damage, and the hair cells can’t tell prog rock from Puccini. It isn’t just us humans whose lives are disrupted by noise. A blackbird that can’t sing over the ambient noise won’t attract a mate. Whales use sonar communication which is disrupted by the noise from shipping. Unlike some animals, humans don’t have ‘earlids’. When we lived in caves, we could close our eyes, but we couldn’t risk not hearing danger approaching. So we are programmed to respond to noises. In the modern world we are particularly distressed by sound which is unpredictable, or which we feel could be controlled. Under the 1990 Environmental Protection Act, noise is a ‘statutory nuisance’. You can measure ambient noise levels using phone apps such as Decibel Meter and SoundPrint. So if your neighbour is using a leaf-blower (110dB) on Sunday, phone your council Noise Team. In ‘Sound Advice’, the Health and Safety Executive provides comprehensive practical advice to the music industry – to concert halls, marching bands, schools – on the law, venue design, rehearsal and concert programming, orchestral arrangement, baffles . . . and ear plugs which reduce the intensity but not the appreciation of music. If ambient noise ruins your evening, say so. If you find complaining difficult, Action on Hearing Loss’s Speak Easy tells you what to say: to the management, on social media and to the press. With enough adverse comments, restaurants will take noise off the menu. Twenty years ago little attention was paid to food and noise in hospitals, and both were abysmal. Eventually people realised that decent, well-presented meals aided patients’ recovery. Kings College London’s Hospital Project on Noise, Sound and Sleep aims to do the same for noise. It starts with listening to the soundscapes and deciding how it can be modified. Rubber corners on trolleys, acoustic finishes on surfaces and sound masking are just a start. Humans use their ears to tell them where to look, so it is not surprising that we are much more aware of landscapes than soundscapes. It would do us good to actively listen to our sonic environment. We will notice ear-sores and acoustic litter. Aircraft noise, for example. Remember the peace in the spring of 2010 when Eyjafjallajökull filled the air with volcanic ash and planes were grounded? With pressure from governments, doctors and audiologists and the public, even planemakers will respond with quieter aircraft. The post Podcast | Quiet please appeared first on NASGP.

By Kat Ritchie https://drjustincoleman.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/pod-6-final-standard-qual.mp3 Liz shines when discussing her pet PhD topic – managing obesity in general practice. Nicely timed for Christmas. Which medications safely make us thinner, now amphetamines and tobacco have lost favour? And, if media images keep depicting Headless Fatties*, how can GPs raise the topic without adding to the stigma? Justin reveals that one of Australia’s biggest GP education companies is boasting it can change our prescribing habits at will – for a hefty fee.

Rank #2: GP sceptics podcast 7: EBM Hijacked!.
by Kat Ritchie https://drjustincoleman.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/pod7_final.mp3 Just when you thought GP Sceptics put the E in evidence-based medicine, we pull the rug from underneath your trusting feet. Western Australian GP Casey Parker, of Broome Docs fame, joins our twosome to become the ‘third nerd’ – a role which fits him like a cardigan and a new pair of glasses. Casey delves into EBM’s dark recesses, where p-hackers subvert the concept of ‘significance’, and RCTs answer all the questions no one bothered asking. Justin discusses a hot-off-the-press systematic review revealing the over-optimism of doctors. And Liz? Liz invites us all aboard the EBM gravy train. Bonus nerd points for any listener who comments below correctly describing when affect is a noun and effect is a verb. This podcast is dedicated to the fond memory of the late Prof Gavin Mooney, editor of Evidence-based medicine in its place. Thanks to Dr Kat Ritchie for her brilliant artwork. References: Dr Casey Parker hosts Broome Docs – full of educational podcasts for GPs! Casey describes his site as, “a single place for all you time-poor doctors to come and get quality education, clinical tips and interact with one another without having to search all over the internet.
