Virtual Solutions to Real Problems: an Innovative Work Experience Support Programme

Poster presentation delivered at the AMEE 2009 Conference, focussing on work undertaken by St George’s committed to ensuring access to undergraduate healthcare courses is equitable. We recognise that the requirement for potential applicants to undertake and reflect on relevant work experience can be a barrier for under-represented groups. Such applicants are less likely to have social connections to support their preparation for application Building on our innovative use of e-learning technologies, we have developed a website for potential applicants offering essential information and guidance about finding and reflecting on work experience to support students’ preparation for application and interview Students from all backgrounds have access to information to support work experience and enhance their preparation for university application. The structured reflective tools include a journal template for download and online blogging, which were discussed during the session.

Why is invasive aspergillosis such a difficult disease to diagnose and treat? by Marta Stanzani

Dr Stanzani explains that fungal cells are very similar to human cells, and that drugs which are toxic to fungals cells may have the same effect on human cells. Mortality in invasive aspergillosis depends largely on the timing of the intervention, timely diagnosis and the state of the patient’s defences – treatment is much more effective when people have an intact immune system.

Getting antifungal levels right - why does it matter? by David Andes

Antifungal drugs (e.g. Itraconazole, Voriconazole and Posaconazole) have a variable and unpredictable dose–concentration relationship, and therefore need careful concentration management. Problems may occur whether the concentration is either too low or too high, and it is difficult to maintain a concentration that falls within the therapeutic window.
