    Medical students are using hologram patients to hone their skills with life-like training scenarios. The project at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge is the first in the world to use the mixed reality technology in this way. Students wear Microsoft HoloLens headsets that let them interact with the patient while still being able to see each other. Lecturers are able to alter the patient’s response, make observations and add complications to the scenario. It enables realistic and immersive safe-to-fail training which can be delivered remotely as well as in person. The first module, c

    Giving birth in England is considered very safe. But it doesn’t mean we can’t do more, and it doesn’t mean we should only look at mortality. There are other questions we need to be asking: What kind of start are we giving mothers? Do they feel safe giving birth? Do they feel safe in pregnancy? Do they feel safe in those first few weeks and months looking after that tiny new person? Motherhood is hard. Looking after mothers so that they can take good care of their babies makes good sense, so maybe looking after those who are caring for mothers makes good sense too? The Royal College

    Student paramedics are missing out on learning how to save lives because they are wasting hours in ambulances outside A&E instead of attending calls, it has been revealed. The College of Paramedics and ambulance directors say the hold-ups mean trainees are missing vital on-the-job experience, leading to fears over the safety of patients. Will Boughton, of the College of Paramedics Trustee for Professional Standards, said handover delays had become a problem for trainees’ development and exposure to real-life experience, meaning training had become “unpredictable”. If steps w

    Key findings: Racism is widespread within the medical workforce. Over three quarters (76%) of respondents experienced racism in their workplace on at least one occasion in the last two years. Of these, 17% experienced racist incidents on a regular basis. Experiences of racism included discriminatory comments, being given fewer opportunities, more scrutiny of work, bullying by patients and colleagues, continued mispronunciation of names, and social exclusion. Overseas qualified doctors experience racism more often than doctors trained in the UK. 84% of respondents who qualified ove

    Regulators have raised serious concerns over trainee doctors within the maternity department at one of the largest trusts in the country. The NHS’ training regulator said it had concerns over the treatment of trainee doctors within the obstetric and gynaecology department at University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust, while some medics report being in ‘meltdown’. Reviewers raised an incident where a consultant had refused to respond to an obstetric emergency in A&E which had been requested by a junior doctor. “The panel unanimously agreed that Consultant presence was r

    The highest ever number of medical students have been told there are no places for them this year, despite the health service’s crippling shortage of medics. The risk that young would-be doctors may not be allocated to start their training at a hospital in the UK has sparked concern among the medical students affected, as well as medical organisations. Pressure is growing for action to close the gap between the number of training places available across the NHS and the number of graduates seeking one, so medical talent is not wasted and hospitals hire as many fresh recruits as they c

    On average, UK medical students receive less than two hours of teaching on eating disorders throughout their entire medical degree. Even more concerningly, a fifth of medical schools do not include eating disorders at all in their teaching. Given that 1 in 50 people in the UK suffer from an eating disorder, and around 5% of the population will be affected at some point in their lifetime, this is something that needs to change. This week is Eating Disorders Awareness Week and Beat Eating Disorders are campaigning for UK medical schools to introduce comprehensive training on eating di

    Medical students aided by an AI tutor outperformed peers taught remotely by human experts in a complicated surgical training procedure, new research reports. The Neurosurgical Simulation and Artificial Intelligence Learning Centre in Montreal, Canada, randomly assigned 70 students feedback and assistance from either a sophisticated AI system, a remote expert human instructor, or neither, while they removed virtual brain tumours using a neurosurgical simulator. The AI system, called the Virtual Operative Assistant (VOA), delivered personalised feedback to its students via a machine le

    A major British medical school is leading the drive to eliminate what it calls "inherent racism" in the way doctors are trained in the UK. The University of Bristol Medical School says urgent action is needed to examine why teaching predominantly focuses on how illnesses affect white people above all other sections of the population. It comes after students pushed for reform, saying gaps in their training left them ill-prepared to treat ethnic minority patients – potentially compromising patient safety. Hundreds of other UK medical students have signed petitions demanding teachi

    Ten junior doctors have been removed from a struggling hospital over concerns they were being left without adequate supervision on understaffed wards. Health Education England (HEE) removed the 10 foundation year one doctors, all on a general medicine rota, from Weston General Hospital last month. The General Medical Council said the trust’s previous efforts to address the issues “have not been sufficient or sustainable”. University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Foundation Trust did not say which services HEE had removed the juniors from or what mitigations had been put in place. Howe

    SLIPPS is responding to the challenge to improve European patient safety competence and education. Errors, mishaps and misunderstandings are common and around 1 in 10 patients suffer avoidable harm (WHO 2014). The majority of adverse care episodes and near misses are preventable (Vlayen et al 2012) and such incidents impact upon patients, their families, health care organisations, staff and students.

    Third year undergraduate trainee nurses will be invited into clinical practice to support the coronavirus effort, while routine care quality inspections are “going to need to be suspended”, the Chief Executive of NHS England has said. Speaking at the Chief Nursing Officer’s summit event in Birmingham this morning, Sir Simon Stevens told delegates NHSE was working with the Nursing and Midwifery Council to “see how many of the 18,000 [relevant] undergraduates are available”. It is understood they would be paid, and follows government moves to pass emergency legislation to relax rules a

    Medical students who are employed in the NHS as part of efforts to swell staff numbers to tackle covid-19 should not be expected to “step up” and act outside of their competency, says the BMA in new guidance. This is the first set of guidance released by the BMA specifically for medical students, who have had placements and exams cancelled and are uncertain about how they might be employed in the NHS in the current crisis. It says that any employment should be voluntary and within the competency of the student, who should have adequate access to personal protective equipment. The BMA
