Human factors and ergonomics [ ] commonly encountered in medicine were initially identified by psychologists and in the early 1970s. , author of , says these are "cognitive pitfalls", biases which cloud our logic. For example, a practitioner may overvalue the first data encountered, skewing his thinking. Another example may be where the practitioner recalls a recent or dramatic (...) death rate in the U.S. alone at 251,454 deaths, which suggests that the 2013 global estimation may not be accurate. Contents Definitions [ ] The word error in medicine is used as a label for nearly all of the clinical incidents that harm patients. Medical errors are often described as in healthcare. Whether the label is a medical error or human error, one definition used in medicine says that it occurs when a provider chooses an inappropriate method of care, improperly executes an appropriate method

Back to the Bedside: The 8-year Evolution of a Resident-as-Teacher Rotation. Teaching our residents to teach is a vital responsibility of Emergency Medicine (EM) residency programs. As emergency department (ED) overcrowding may limit the ability of attending physicians to provide bedside instruction, senior residents are increasingly asked to assume this role for more junior trainees. Unfortunately, a recent survey suggests that only 55% of all residencies provide instruction in effective (...) teaching methods. Without modeling from attending physicians, many residents struggle with this responsibility.We introduced a "Resident-as-Teacher" curriculum in 2002 as a means to address a decline in bedside instruction and provide our senior residents with a background in effective teaching methods.Here, we describe the evolution of this resident-as-teacher rotation, outline its current structure, cite potential pitfalls and solutions, and discuss the unique addition of a teach-the-teacher

Most pharmaceutical firms are located in developed countries, but 80% of the pharmaceuticals are manufactured in developing countries.

A diagnosis is made and sent back to the referring hospital in the US, usually within 30 minutes.

and prioritizing emergencies. Government incentivised directives, in the form of Advanced Access and now Extended Access, have driven changes in consulting practice with an increasing number of clinical contacts being provided by phone. [ ] Primary care (whether from traditional or corporate providers) is challenged to provide more flexible access and telemedicine may, in part, help to meet the 'gap'. Consumer demand - with the advent of mobile communication technologies and a faster, 'money rich-time poor (...) - the telephone has become a vital administrative tool enabling practices to achieve targets within the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) of the new GMS (nGMS) contract. For example, telephones are widely used to prompt attendance at clinics and to monitor a chronic disease patient's progress without the need to come in to the surgery. The use of telephone consultation is growing in other areas of medicine, not just in primary care. For example, telephone follow up has been shown to be safe for oncology

[ ] Acute abdominal pain is a common complaint in childhood and it can be caused by a wide range of underlying surgical and non-surgical conditions. The most common non-surgical condition is gastroenteritis, while the most common surgical condition is appendicitis. Appendicitis accounts for more than 40,000 hospital admissions in England every year. Appendicitis is the most common non-obstetric surgical emergency during pregnancy, with an incidence of 0.15-2.10 per 1,000 pregnancies [ ] . The frequency (...)

Three foetal medicine units within Melbourne are involved in referring patients to three different MRI units: The Mercy Hospital for Women refers patients to the Austin Repatriation Hospital, The Monash Medical Centre refers on to Southern Health, and The Royal Women’s Hospital refers patients to the Royal Children’s Hospital. Patients referred to any of these centres for a foetal MRI must undergo a repeat tertiary (...) level ultrasound and have consulted a foetal medicine specialist. In addition, geneticists, counsellors and social workers may need to be consulted (personal communication, Southern Health). It is likely that all states are conducting a limited number of foetal MRI scans, however it is strongly recommended that foetal MRIs should only be performed and interpreted in centres of excellence with appropriate experience and part of a multidisciplinary diagnostic team.
