Primary Survey to Trauma Patients

The approach to trauma differs from other complaints in that so much can be injured, those injuries can be severe and much of it can be difficult to detect. So we need a systematic approach to these patients.

PSA screening for prostate cancer

Few healthcare issues have generated as much controversy as prostate specific antigen (PSA) based screening for prostate cancer.1 2 Enthusiasm for such screening is high in part because a seemingly simple blood test can lead to early detection and treatment of a common and potentially lethal disease. Screening has resulted in a noticeable increase in incidence of prostate cancer and near universal active treatment for screen detected disease. However, recent science shows that screening for prostate cancer, as with all screening strategies, is a complex process and double-edged sword. This provides the background for the linked paper by Carlsson and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2296).3 Though some men may benefit from screening, many more are harmed by testing and the cascade of diagnostic and treatment related events that follow. Further, men and society bear the financial costs of this screening cascade.

With Harvard and MIT managing to maintain their first and second place, Stanford University knocked Cambridge off the number three spot, pushing Oxford to number five. The US clearly dominates the rankings with seven of the top 10 places being taken by American Institutions. You can see the full table at the Times Higher Education Bahram Bekhradnia, president of the UK’s Higher Education Policy Institute, says: “Given the UK’s size, this survey suggests we are still punching above our weight as far as research performance is concerned: at more than four times our size, the US has only around four times the number of universities in the top 100. What is worrying though is the apparent deterioration in the

One in four GPs remains reluctant to initiate end of life discussions with patients

The survey of 1003 UK GPs was conducted by ComRes for the Dying Matters coalition, a group led by the National Council for Palliative Care. It found that one in four GPs had not initiated any discussion with patients about their end of life wishes, even though GPs can on average expect around 20 of their patients to die each year.
