    My mother, 87 years, was admitted to hospital with a suspected heart attack. At the time, she was on a strong dose of a GP-prescribed opioid (fentanyl) to manage her growing lung cancer. The Duty doctor in the hospital seemed panicked as she was so unwell and used a drug to totally reverse her morphine as they thought she had overdosed. This caused excruciating pain for most of the last 60 hours of her life. They hadn’t properly assessed the history of her prescription or asked me, her documented health advocate, about the drug or my mother’s end of life wishes. After a 2-year long traumatic j

    Key findings Local host responses to polypropylene (PP) used in surgical mesh included pain, foreign body sensation, seroma and haematoma. When PP mesh was used in other surgeries (female stress urinary incontinence mesh or mini-sling, transvaginal or transabdominal prolapse mesh), the primary local responses were erosion/exposure followed by dyspareunia and pain. Studies reported these complications from immediately post surgery to five years post surgery. Evidence suggested that lightweight PP mesh was less likely than heavier weight PP mesh to cause pain or foreign body sensati

    These four vlogs are edited versions of vlogs originally commissioned by the NHS. They are all fully referenced based on UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and on the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Prescribing Competency Framework for all prescribers (see the video description) and contain links to useful sources of further information. Shared decision making - 'It's my decision', which covers the latest NICE Guideline on shared decision making. 'Too much information' - Dealing with information overload on medicines & prescribing, which inclu

    HSIB was notified about potential patient safety issues by Sarah, who was concerned about the care she had received when her babies were delivered. The investigation used interviews, observations of the maternity unit and reviews of guidelines and organisational documents in order to understand the system-wide factors that contributed to Sarah’s experience and the decisions made by staff. The evidence suggested that the process of decision making in the context of Sarah’s care was relevant to this investigation, so the investigation has summarised the key factors that appear to have influenced

    Morris et al. concluded that the current state of knowledge of time lags is of limited use to those responsible for R&D and knowledge transfer who face difficulties in knowing what they should or can do to reduce time lags. This effectively ‘blindfolds’ investment decisions and risks wasting effort. The study concludes that understanding lags first requires agreeing models, definitions and measures, which can be applied in practice. A second task would be to develop a process by which to gather these data. Further reading: Patient Safety Learning - Mind the implementation gap: Th

    It is 22 years since the publication of To Err is Human and An Organisation with a Memory. Patient Safety has become a priority worldwide with the passing of the WHO Global Action Plan on Patient Safety. Almost every country has a plan or set of interventions to decrease harm and make healthcare safer. And the development of the science of patient safety has been exponential with increasing evidence of what is required to be safe. We now know what we need to do to prevent harm. In the report led by Sir Liam Donaldson it was stated that four actions were needed to improve safety in the NHS

    A recent blog I wrote (see link below) brings together key information for clinicians, and especially for prescribers, from a variety of sources, including patients, relatives and carers. The aim is to help to prevent patients with autism and learning disabilities being harmed by inappropriate medicines. I began this in 2018 following the death of Oliver McGowan, which I cover in teaching for (non-medical) prescribing students and in my clinical education work. It links to the NHS Learning Disability Mortality (LeDeR) Review Programme. Key points: Most of the prescribing in thi

    One in five deaths around the world is caused by sepsis, also known as blood poisoning, shows the most comprehensive analysis of the condition. The report estimates 11 million people a year are dying from sepsis - more than are killed by cancer. The researchers at the University of Washington said the "alarming" figures were double previous estimates. Most cases were in poor and middle income countries, but even wealthier nations are dealing with sepsis. There has been a big push within the health service to identify the signs of sepsis more quickly and to begin treatment. The challe

    We should all strive to keep antibiotics working for our NHS surgeons and future generations, by decreasing antibiotic use in medicine. It is mums themselves who could dramatically decrease antibiotic use, in the only medical specialty where this is possible - in obstetrics - by keeping skin intact; by being informed of the 10cm diameter that 'Aniball' and 'Epi-no Delphine Plus' birth facilitating devices, the mechanical version of Antenatal Perineal Massage, achieve by skin expansion (much like by 'earlobe skin expanders') prior to birth, for back of baby's head. This enables a normal birth f
