The evidence for Video Consultations in Primary care

The evidence for Video Consultations in Primary care

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.

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

In this episode, Prof Helen Atherton explains the evidence for video consultations in primary care.

We cover:

💻 What is a video consultation vs remote consultations
💻 What is digital exceptionalism and why it has an impact- should it?
💻 The type of patients that will use video consultations.
💻 The use of funding for video consultations like the Access funds and Priminister Challenge funds
💻 We discuss the work of Trisha Greenhalgh
💻 Comparison of telephone vs F2F consultations and what gaps video can fill
💻 The ViCo study:
🖥Done in 2016 as a feasibility study
🖥Using video consultations as an alternative to F2F on the Attend Anywhere platform in Scotland.
🖥The technical issues in doing the study and considerations including devices and infrastructure.
🖥Results:
🖥Useful for single problem issues and similar in length to telephone consultations.
🖥 Advantages for video use with remote working, convenience, and visual element
🖥 Suitable only where a physical exam may not be needed
🖥 Technical issues need addressing

How to register with your local GP (2019)

How to register with your local GP (2019)

July 25, 2019

How to register with your local GP

 

To obtain healthcare from an NHS GP (General Practitioner) you need to be registered with a practice. In this post learn how you can register with your local GP.

 

 

Registering with your local GP surgery is an easy process, but there are some considerations to make. Listen below to hear how, or watch the video at the end of this post to see more. In summary:

 

By paper:

 

You need a GMS 1 form. You can obtain this from your practice, or download from the nhs.uk site here. An example is below:

 

GMS 1 form front

 

When completing the form, complete all relevant sections on the first page:

 

  • Your details - needed to register you
  • Details of your previous practice or address- to track your records quickly
  • If you are eligible for veteran care as part of the armed forces.
  • If you are registering your child- if you need ongoing child health surveillance care (under 5's).
  • If you need the use of dispensing service ( where the practice provides your physical prescription instead of a local pharmacy). This is more common for rural practices.
  • Opting in/out of organ and blood donation services.

 

The top of the back of the GMS 1 form is completed by the practice (not the patient).

 

The final section on the back is relevant if you are an ordinary resident (normally living abroad or visiting England) to confirm the level of care you may receive.

 

Other ways to fill the form are to access it via your practice website.

 

Reasons a practice may not register you:

 

Sometimes a practice may not be able to register you. This would be if :

 

  • the practice list is closed to new patients
  • if you are outside of the registered practice area
  • if you have previously been removed from a practice list (certain situations and rare).

 

You may be asked to provide photographic ID or proof of address. This is not compulsory but recommended as it can help speed up the registration process. This includes:

 

  • passport
  • driving licence
  • residence permit
  • ARC card
  • utility bill

 

Also, providing a copy of your repeat medications can make a new registration easier.

 

The GMS 1 form is different from the temporary registration form and provides a different service.

 

To find which practices you can register with ask local residents, community leaders, housing support teams or use the nhs.uk website here.

 

NHS App

 

You can register via the NHS app.

 

This is the gateway to health services and enables you to register with a practice quickly via your smartphone device.

 

The NHS app also allows you to:

 

  • book an appointment at your local practice
  • order your regular (repeat) medications
  • look at your medical records
  • use a symptom checker
  • search health condition information from the nhs.uk website
  • confirm your organ and blood donation choices

 

Further functionality is due in the next few years and some areas may have extra services.

 

Other apps

 

Other companies can provide you with health care via an app system. Companies like Babylon,(including their GP at Hand system), Push Doctor, QDoctor and Livi all use apps to register patients. Some claims that you can be registered and see a patient within 10 minutes.

 

 

Further guidance on how to register with your local GP can be found on the nhs.uk website here.

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.

What type of doctors bag should you use for visiting patients?

What type of doctors bag should you use for visiting patients?

What type of doctors bag should you use for visiting patients? A guide by DrGandalf

The debate on what type of bag you should use when visiting patients rages on. In this video I show you my choices and what you should consider when buying a visiting bag as a doctor.

So which type of doctors bag should you consider?

There are generally two schools of thought on this:

  • a hard bag
  • not a hard bag

The clear benefit of a hard bag is the fact it can be used as a seat for home visits. Additionally, the more robust nature can imitate security for contents and rarely personal security. Whether hard or soft, in terms of cost this may vary from bargain basement rucksack from your local shop to designer medical or retail bags including maternity bags.

In reality what you truly need is simply a comfortable bag to carry, with several pockets, somewhere to keep paperwork and ideally a lock on one compartment if you plan on carrying FP10 prescriptions and/or meds.

https://youtu.be/UBGMDYEzMYo

The bags I mention and more:

The Merlin Morgan bag - was my first doctor's bag. Really large, robust and more pockets than a magician (hence the name I guess). I now use it as my camera bag.

Alternatives are the Gima utility bag with a packet which a colleague has used for a while. The extra packet is useful for keeping medications and small items in. Alternately an effective camera bag can be a great choice as a doctor's visiting bag and on several forums, these are often the preferred options my many.

My first Hi-Tec rucksack visit bag was ok but my current Hi-Tec visiting bag is much better. It has lasted me about 4 years now, is large enough to carry everything I need but still small enough to be portable and functional. The material could be better padded and insulated, an issue in cold weather which can affect equipment working like thermometers.

Trainee bag- Duragadget This is the doctors bag we have for our trainees. It is similar to the Hi-Tec bag above but solves the insulation issue. It is also waterproof.

Harder bags like pilot chest are preferred by many given they are more robust and business like.

Or makeup chests can be a great option if you want a really solid bag that you can also sit on. the multiple compartments make this really useful.

Kipling bags: and Mulberry bags are good fashion bags that can be effective as a visit bag. NOt my particular preference but often a good choice and ones several colleagues have used.

IYASU is a company that is looking to make visit bags specifically designed for doctors in the UK. Keep an eye out for more information.

If you want to know what to put in your doctor's bag check out my equipment posts below.

How to work quicker in primary care using technology

How to work quicker in primary care using technology

June 16, 2019

How to work quicker in primary care using technology - our top 10 tips.

Watch this episode recorded for the HTN Digital week on how you can work quicker in primary care using technology.

Join Andy and Gandhi of the eGPlearning Podblast team as they share their top tips on how you can work quicker in primary care. These are universal tips for all members of General practice like GPs, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, health care workers and more

https://youtu.be/YqcLFIysofE

Tracking Time

This is important to understand which areas you may need to focus on in order to work quicker in primary care.

One tool to consider is Clockify which can easily be used to track your time. See our video which explains this tool and why it might be the best one for use in general practice.

Text expanders and autoconsulations

Each system in primary care has its own method of helping you document more information quickly. EMIS has shortcodes, Systm One has autoconsultations. If you want a tool that sits outside of the clinical system, consider a text expander like in the eGPlearning support pack.

Things to consider is hot to personalise these tools and the probity of use.

Automation and protocols

Each clinical system has ways to help you automate the work you do. SystmOne has autoconsultations and protocols, EMIS has macros, and I am sure other systems have similar.

Using these tools can significantly save you time. As SystmOne users, Andy and I use autoconsultations for streamlining work like our anticipatory medication prescriptions for end of life care. If you want access to this join the eGPlearning mailing list or a community of support like S1 FBUG or EMIS web FB user group.

Companies can offer these systems without you making your own. This can further save time but comes with a cost. See Ardens for SystmOne or for EMIS try PrimaryCareIT.

Workflow and remote working

How you manage workflow in your practice will drastically affect your workload. Look at these four points about any task:

  • Who
  • What
  • Where
  • When

You can even add why on there at times. Remember, if a task does not require a face to face encounter, can it be done remotely and hence at scale. Remote working can also help with job satisfaction. See the video below

https://youtu.be/imDiWTrn-7M

Type faster

If you want to work quicker, then typing quicker can really save you time. To help, see our episode on Keybr - an online tool that can help speed up your typing speed. A great PDP item for your appraisal and will definitely help you work quicker in primary care.

Another great tip we got from Deen Mirza in his FRAYED consultation book is to type while the patient is there. What do you think? Would you do this.

Dictation

If you really do not like typing, then dication may be the answer. Modern systems have significantly improved and learn with in built systems to refine how they interpret your voice. Modern systems like Dragon, Lexacom and Dictateit.live can really save you time as you formulate your letters, or even be used in consultations.

Messaging and meetings

Modern general practice and primary care is filled with meetings. How you manage them can significantly affect your time. So improve your communication. Andy and Gandhi both use WhatsApp to manage our partner role in practice for effective communication. Be wary not to discuss patient data, and we may see other systems like Microsoft Teams, Glip, Slack and GP Teamnet take over, but for now WhatsApp with is simplicity and mass user base can be really effective.

Webinars

Webinars can be time saving and negate some of the costs of face to face meetings like transport costs and time. A great system to use is Zoom, which we have been using as part of our PCN working, and we find it is more effective than others.

Try it here: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningZoom

File sharing:

Cloud based file sharing can really streamline your work process and help you work quicker in primary care. Many of these services are more secure than paper/un-encyrpted USB drives. Which would you consider using?

GP TeamNet: https://clarity.co.uk/teamnet/
Intradoc: http://www.intra-doc.com/
Google Drive: https://drive.google.com

Conquer information overload

While all these can help, being able to manage your information workload is something to consider. Methods like zero inbox, unified information feeds, sticking to one social media platform and keeping simplicity at heart can help.

Impressive and surprised us in places.

 

The Good

 

  • Generally the best at recognising our questions.
  • Good to see sources of information are mostly provided and tended to be recognised and reputable.
  • The ability to ask a follow on questions which are processed within the context of the previous question was very useful and made interactions feel more conversational. We can ask about a drug and then follow up with a question about side effects.
  • Good integration with phone. Could send directions to A&E department to phone.
  • Supports voice interface for third-party apps such as Headspace.

 

The Bad

 

  • Sometimes tried to do more than it could do safely
  • Concerns about privacy and data security. Will Google sell us headache remedies - is health data identified as a more sensitive category? Would we want adverts for sexually transmitted infection clinics nearby?

 

 

 

Runner up: Siri - 13 Points

 

After adding up the points after the show, Siri actual came second...

 

The Good

 

  • Best to summon help in an emergency - direct link with phone
  • Primarily serving up web search results - but this is often useful.
  • Available in many form factors; HomePod, iPhone, Apple Watch, AirPod earphones.
  • Didn’t try to do more than it could do safely
  • Apple sacrificing performance for greater privacy

 

The Bad

 

  • Behind in terms of voice and question recognition
  • Apple sacrificing performance for greater privacy

 

 

 

“Second runner up”: Amazon Alexa - 4 points

 

The Good

 

  • Was able to find useful information and often provided the source
  • Lots of potential for Alexa Skills and their simple development environment.

 

The Bad

 

  • Privacy concerns
  • Ease of production of Alexa skills may lead to large numbers of poor quality or unsafe skills Safety
  • Single trigger word leads to unintentional, and annoying, accidental activations.

 

Final thoughts.

 

57.15 What we think of Alexa and Google. What does Siri do well and why?

 

59.00 Activation issues - is one word better than two?

 

 

 

Potential for Digital Assistants and health in the future

 

  • Digital assistants acting as translators (where human translator not available)? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5bA12koB-g
  • Digital assistants providing triage of symptoms and providing signposting to self-care and alternative sources of care.
  • Linking-in to pharmacy sales could enable a business model for triage (1.06.00)
  • Helping patients find and navigate health services along their patient journey
  • Monitoring of long term health conditions and vulnerable individuals such as dementia sufferers (1.07.15)

How to get your CCT

How to get your CCT

May 23, 2019

How to get your CCT - as a GP with RCGP First5 lead Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein

Watch this video if you want to know all the steps and processes you need to follow to get your CCT - with current RCGP First5 lead - Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein

In this video, we cover sorting out your GMC allocations, ARCP, what an outcome 6 is, performer list issues, indemnity, and networks after finishing including supporting organisations.

This is a must see video if you are about to become a newly qualified GP.

CCTing… What you need to know and do.

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

GMC

You should get an email from the GMC approx. 3-6 months before you are due to CCT inviting you to make sure all your details are up to date, including your email address. Check it!

Once your final ARCP is completed and you get an Outcome 6, you will be contacted by RCGP/or via eportfolio to click ‘apply for CCT’ and you will be guided through the process. Remember you need to pay your fee to the GMC to be added to the GP register (£399, currently being reviewed)
https://www.gmc-uk.org/registration-and-licensing/managing-your-registration/fees-and-funding

Performers list

Make sure you are on the performers list and clarify your region’s requirements to update the record from ‘registrar’ to ‘GP salaried/partner/locum etc’. If you are moving areas, there are notification forms on the website.
https://www.performer.england.nhs.uk/

Indemnity

Make sure you update your indemnity provider with your changing work details (with dates) and continue to do so.
