    The MHRA safety review examined safety data for risks of major birth defects or abnormalities and concerns with the child’s development including learning and thinking abilities for other key antiepileptic drugs.

Importantly, two antiepileptic medicines in particular, lamotrigine (Lamictal) and levetiracetam (Keppra),

    The Authors, conclude that whilst healthcare has much to learn from aviation in certain key domains, the transfer of lessons from aviation to healthcare needs to be nuanced, with the specific characteristics and needs of healthcare borne in mind. On the basis of this review, it is recommended that healthcare should emulate aviation in its resourcing of staff who specialise in human factors and related psychological aspects of patient safety and staff well-being. Professional and post-qualification staff training could specifically include Cognitive Bias Avoidance Training, as this appears to p

    The outcome is that the RCP released a statement on its website relating to revised guidance on the use of early warning scores for COVID-19 inpatients.

    Key recommendations Data should be collected systematically on cases of Long COVID and presented alongside numbers of cases, hospitalisations and deaths from COVID-19.
