E-learning module in psychiatry on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

As part of my 5th year Senior Clinical Project I developed a psychiatry e-learning module in the form of a virtual patient on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), constructed using a PowerPoint template from the e-learning department at Cardiff University. This consisted of a simulated ADHD case, with the student taking the role of a General Practitioner and Specialist Paediatrician involved in the patient’s care. During the course of the module the user is required to make clinical and therapeutic decisions regarding the patient, with educational material revealed to them as they complete a selection of multiple-choice questions on the disorder. The module has since been made available as a resource for future students via blackboard, which can be found at: Before developing the module, I conducted a thorough literature search on ‘e-learning and medical education’, in order to access current literature and gain an insight into some of the educational theory surrounding the subject. A combination of textbook research, published literature, and national guidelines were then used to establish an extensive knowledge of ADHD from which the module content could be derived. I strongly believe my learning resource will help improve future students' understanding of the disorder, which only forms a small part of the current fourth year psychological medicine curriculum.

Why Are American Health Care Costs So High?

In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.) For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the US: Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story: This is the first part in what will be a periodic series on health care costs and reforms leading up to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in 2014.

ECG Interpretation - Cardiac Electrical Activity Contraction of the atria and ventricles is tightly coordinated by a wave of depolarisation spreading through the muscular walls of these chambers. The depolarisation wave reflects movement of charge across cardiomyocyte membranes and is in effect an electrical current spreading through the heart. Following contraction, cardiac muscle returns to a resting state and this is associated with reversal of the movement of charge across the myocyte membranes, this second wave of electrical activity is termed cardiac repolarisation. The leads of the ECG machine are designed to detect and record these two waves of cardiac electrical activity. The depolarisation and repolarisation waves spread through the heart in a highly predictable pattern and to understand the ECG readout, the pattern of spread of cardiac electrical activity needs to be understood. is a web resource that provides Videos and Interactive Games to teach the complex nature of ECG / EKG. 3D reconstructions and informative 2D animations provide the ideal learning environment for this field.
