    The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges have published the first National patient safety syllabus that will underpin the development of curricula for all NHS staff as part of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy: https://www.pslhub.org/learn/professionalising-patient-safety/training/staff-clinical/national-patient-safety-syllabus-open-for-comment-r1399/ Via the above link you can access a ‘key points’ document which provides some of the context for the syllabus and answers to some frequently asked questions. AOMRC are inviting key stakeholders to review this iteration of the syllabus (1.0)

    Adrenal insufficiency (AI) is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening condition, where patients are unable to produce enough of the glucocorticoid, cortisol. Every practice will have patients with a known diagnosis of AI, such as those with Addison’s disease, congenital adrenal hyperplasia or hypothalamo-pituitary diseases. Patients who take oral, inhaled, injected or topical steroids for other medical conditions may develop adrenal insufficiency and become steroid dependent. Over a two-year period in England between July 2018 and July 2020, four deaths and four intensive care admiss

    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

    Nine months ago, Boris Johnson praised staff at St Thomas’ for saving his life. Now, a senior intensive care nurse at the London hospital has warned that patient care is being compromised because of staff shortages and a failure to plan for the second Covid wave. Dave Carr, an intensive care charge nurse, is one of many NHS workers desperate for the public to know what is going on inside their hospitals at a time when misinformation and scepticism about the virus are rife. “The public needs to be aware of what’s happening. This is worse than the first wave; we have more patients than

    This resource, developed by UK healthcare professionals and policymakers, provides the information to support a safe and effective prescribing decision. Key Messages 1. Opioids are very good analgesics for acute pain and for pain at the end of life but there is little evidence that they are helpful for long term pain. 2. A small proportion of people may obtain good pain relief with opioids in the long-term if the dose can be kept low and especially if their use is intermittent (however it is difficult to identify these people at the point of opioid initiation). 3.

    MEs are a key element of the death certification reforms, which, once in place, will deliver a more comprehensive system of assurances for all non-coronial deaths, regardless of whether the deceased is buried or cremated. MEs will be employed in the NHS system, ensuring lines of accountability are separate from NHS Acute Trusts but allowing for access to information in the sensitive and urgent timescales to register a death. This case study outlines the approach of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as one of the early adopter sites. To date, the following learning points have

    The anaesthetist has a primary responsibility to understand the function of the anaesthetic equipment and check it before use. Anaesthetists should not use equipment unless they have been trained in its use and are competent to do so. A self-inflating bag should be immediately available in any location where anaesthesia is given. A two-bag test should be performed after the breathing system, vaporisers and ventilator have been individually checked. A record should be kept with the anaesthetic machine that these checks have been carried out. The ‘first user’ check, after servicing, is especiall
