Honourable mentions:

 

The Good GP - an Australian based GP podcast with in depth views on clinical topics. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-good-gp/id1212751478

 

The GP show with Dr Sam Manger: is another Australian based podcast with a more conversational tone. I like their analysis and the topics are broader than the Good GP podcast. https://thegpshow.libsyn.com/

 

MDTea: Is a Uk Geriatric based podcast with the multidisciplinary team taking part. Hosted by Dr Ian Wilkinson and Dr Jo Preston it is well worth a listen. http://thehearingaidpodcasts.org.uk/mdtea-podcast/

 

So what are my top 5 clinical learning podcasts?

 

5: RCGP podcasts. This includes the main RCGP Learning podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/rcgp-podcast/id1398882781

 

And the RCGP essential knowledge update podcast. https://audioboom.com/channels/4992401

 

Additionally there is the Sage General Practice podcast which is effectively the InnovAiT podcast (DOI I am an editor of this podcast). https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/sage-general-practice/id871122209

 

4 The DTB podcast- drugs and theraputic podcast is a great listen about all things medicine and more. http://feeds.bmj.com/dtbpodcast

 

  1. The BMJ produce a couple of podcasts. Their main one reviews the recent BMJ editions while the Best practice podcast covers clinical topics. 

Main: http://feeds.bmj.com/bmj/podcasts

Best Practice: http://feeds.bmj.com/bmjbestpractice/podcasts

 

  1. Inside Health is a firm public favourite and a great listen. With Dr Mark Porter and Dr Margaret McCartney providing evidence it is a valuable update and a great way to know what is current in the world of medicine. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b019dl1b/episodes/downloads

 

1️. Primary Care Knowledge Boosts is a concise clinical update podcast that is a great listen with hosts Sara and Lisa who have a great rapport and make the topics relevant and an #easyCPD hit. This is a must subscribe. https://primarycareknowledgeboost.podbean.com/

What equipment to take to a GP conference

October 17, 2019

Imagine going to a conference to learn and having everything you need. In this episode I cover what I take to a conference to help my learning and comfort. Do you agree?

🔴 Subscribe: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningYTsubscribe 🔴

I recently got asked what equipment I need at a conference. in this episode, shot at the Best practice Conference 2019 in Birmingham, I look at the various different ways you can use equipment to help with your learning or simply make attending a conference comfortable. I also look at the type of tech you may need if you are attending as a presenter at a conference.

00:47 Plan your objectives- look at the agenda and plan the sessions you want to attend
01:25 Smartphone yourself- the essential tech piece anyone should have (if recording do not forget your microphone…..like my Boya M1
01:55 Battery pack - 10000 amp should be more than enough 
02:32 universal charger cable - multiple heads are better than one.
03:14 compact charger plug 
03:37 an effective bag - especially to carry all your kit and some space for extra items- 
04:07 water bottle and healthy snacks

4:45 laptop or tablet: I use the Microsoft surface pro 6 
05:25 mini display port - an essential if you are delivering a presentation: 
06:10 Pen and paper - Dingbat notebook  and Frixion pen 
06:50 headphones and external Seagate USB hard drive 

What equipment do you take, comment on any of the eGPlearning platforms.

August 15, 2019

Video consultations are the new buzz in primary care and a mandated part of the new contract from April 2020.

GPs and clinicians love evidence to justify the use of any service and in this post, I cover the evidence for video consultations in-depth with Prof Helen Atherton of the Academic unit of primary care at Warwick Medical School.

Privacy settings for social media

Privacy settings for social media

July 11, 2019

How to change your privacy settings for social media- Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Do you know how to change your privacy settings on social media? Find out in this post.

22% of eGPlearners (responders to the quiz) do not. Making sure your privacy settings are set to your preference and up to date is a vital part of keeping you and your patients safe if you are using social media.

In this episode of the eGPlearning #TipThursday I show you how to change your privacy settings on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn so you can be sure you are sharing only what you want to share.

Facebook

See this section to learn how to do a Facebook privacy check-up. Also, see the privacy shortcuts that Facebook offers to support users.

Twitter

In this section, I show you how to change your privacy settings on Twitter including how to make your account private

LinkedIn

With a happy medium of content with privacy settings compared to Facebook and Twitter, watch this section to see how to get the most out of the professional social network.

Ensuring your privacy settings are up to date and set at a level you choose is vital to keeping both you, and your patients safe when using social media. I recommend checking them every 6 months to a year.

Have you?

Social Media Guidance for Doctors: pre-SCRIBE

Social Media Guidance for Doctors: pre-SCRIBE

July 4, 2019

Social Media Guidance for Doctors and clinicians: pre-SCRIBE

Are you aware of the social media guidance that exists to keep doctors, clinicians and patients safe?

In this post, I show you various forms of formal social media guidance, why these are needed and explore my own easy to use version called pre-SCRIBE.

Following recent articles in magazines like STAT that have commented why doctors shouldn’t use social media, other reply articles by the organisation SoMeDocs and SELF have shown why doctors and clinicians should.

But the important part is like with any tool to use social media safely. 

Formal guidance exists like that from the General Medical Council (GMC), the Royal College of GPs (RCGP), the British Medical Association (BMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) to name a few. 

These are detailed and less effective in the moment, so I would suggest using a quicker tool call pre-SCRIBE. pre-SCRIBE (before you write) stands for

  • Share
  • Confidentiality
  • Respect
  • Identity
  • Boundaries
  • Engage

This episode explores all these aspects and I share how they can be useful, including other tips to help keep you safe when using social media as a doctor.
