Which foods have FODMAPS? Can FastFODMAP help?

Which foods have FODMAPS? Can FastFODMAP help?

February 7, 2019

FODMAPS are complex carbohydrate chains with some evidence linked as triggers for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Avoiding FODMAPS can help a patient experience fewer symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits.

Understanding which foods have FODMAPS, however, is complex. This episode looks at how using an app this can be supported, including some extra information about games in the app and cautions on using it.

The best haematology app? Buku Haematology

The best haematology app? Buku Haematology

January 17, 2019

What is the best haematology app?

Watch this review of Buku Haematology - a useful clinical reference resource that details how to manage haematological investigation results, work up for common haematological conditions and emergencies.

With a clean interface and clear explanations and reference to BMJ, CKS and national guidance it really is a valuable resource for anyone in primary care.

The highs and lows section covers individual test results and the implications of them to help clinicians understand how to manage the results in the context of each patient.

The coagulation section gives useful guides on problems with coagulation including FAQs on DOACs like Rivaroxaban.

The workup section explains common presentations and considerations for haematological conditions and how to manage from a primary care perspective and what point to refer.

The obstetric section has useful criteria for managing anaemia in pregnancy. The emergency section helps guide how to manage complex haematological emergencies.

Created by Dr Alex Langridge and Prof Steven O'Brian it really is a useful app that is updated in content on a regular basis.

Must own GP app- Nottinghamshire LMC

Must own GP app- Nottinghamshire LMC

January 10, 2019

Must own GP app- Nottinghamshire LMC app

Hi #eGPlearners , with millions of apps out there how do you know which ones you should use. Try one of my top 5 apps as a must own GP app- the Nottinghamshire LMC app. 

Watch the video here and do not forget to subscribe to be the first to see future episodes. 

#TipThursday

The Nottinghamshire LMC app in my view is a must own GP app. 

It contains multiple resources useful for any GP at any stage of their career.  Linking to BMA resources means that although Nottinghamshire centric, the app is relevant to GPs in any geographic location. This includes a guidance section which is kept up to date, resources for partners, trainees, practice managers, and sessional GPs. 

The app contains useful news links and contact details including local LMC events (Nottinghamshire focused). 

The SHOP library allows you to share experience and innovation while the services section links to valuable resources offered by the LMC. 

Finally, the Wellbeing section is diverse with multiple resources, tools, and links to financial, mental health, well-being, support and self-development help. 

I find this a truly useful app with multiple resources. One development could be to enhance reporting like the BEAM to LMC app offered by the Londonwide LMC. 

Take a look and download the app from the link here

Are you hoping for a Dry January?

Are you hoping for a Dry January?

January 3, 2019

Are you hoping for a Dry January?

 

Hi #eGPlearners - are you hoping for a Dry January? Check out this Dry January app review on how the app works and whether it is useful for individuals or patients. 

Click on the image below to see the full video or read below. 

 

dry_january_thumbnail.png

It is reasonable to assume that alcohol drinking increases over December with Christmas parties, festive celebrations over the holiday period and New Years which also culminate in lesser-known occasions like Black eye Friday. 

But with a new year comes change and a slew of new years resolutions. Many may participate in Dry January - where you do not drink alcohol for the whole month. To support people,  the Alcohol Change UK charity has created the Dry January app, but is it any good?

The app is easy and free to download. It asks for your current drinking habits and lets you add this quickly and easily. Presenting you with an approximate unit intake, cost and calorie intake per week is also a good set of metrics to use. 

The app does ask if you want to contribute and savings you make as a pledge. I think this is reasonable as the Alcohol Charity UK have created this app for free and offer you the choice. Better yet- even if you pledge it is only a percentage of the savings you have made so technically you are not paying for it. 

Logging your habits is easy and customisable. The main dashboard provides clear information and some resources to support you. 

However, I think the app could be improved. while Dry January can be a useful idea, for those significantly high drinkers stopping suddenly can be dangerous and clearer warnings on this would be more ideal particularly when logging your intake. Also signposting to regional support services would be a more useful way to use the app. 

Overall, I like the app and think it works better than many of the tools in the patient health records I use. If it leads to a permanent change in drinking habits this can be really helpful, although it is important to remember that boom or bust methods to cut vices can sometimes lead to rebound use which can be just as damaging to a person's health. Subjectively many clinical colleagues mention higher admission rates for alcohol misuse in the first two weeks of February and Dry January may be the cause.

Do you need some Headspace?

Do you need some Headspace?

December 20, 2018

Hi #eGPlearners do you need some Headspace?

Working in healthcare whether as a GP, part of the primary care team or in hospitals can be emotionally stressful. There are many ways to manage stress and lately mindfulness is seen as an effective tool to support stress management. But access can be tricky – so let us look to technology to help in the form of Headspace.

  • Edit
 
 

Headspace was founded in 2010 by Rich Pierson and Andy Puddicombe (who wrote the Headspace guide to Mindfulness and Medication).  The Headspace platform offers unique content varying from guided meditations to animations and videos via the Headspace website and mobile app, teaching users the techniques of mindfulness.

The app is free to download and use with extra features behind a subscription paywall. These extra functions include modules to help deal with stress,  difficulties in focusing, sleep issues, chronic pain,  fear of flying and more. It also has dedicated sections to help with younger people such as settling the active child at night. 

The variable module length is useful with a minimum of 3 minutes meaning anyone can use at some point in the day. 

I love the animations which do draw me in, and the interface which is easy to use. The guided meditations work well and its simplicity is a key reason I do recommend this app to patients as well. With often limited timely access to mental health support, I have found this a useful tool for several patients as an adjunct to their treatment.  Just simply switch on the app, select your module and time length, audio or headphones on and go. 

The app also continues to work if you have to multi-task with your device. I accept this may defeat the object of guided mindfulness- but a useful feature to know about. 

Additionally, the app is resource packed including the obstacle section in the settings which are short free modules which offer advice on overcoming obstacles when trying to use the app such as worry, posture, stiffness, pain etc. 

With the rise of AI assistants like Google Home, Siri, and Alexa you can also set Headspace to run from these systems like using the Headspace Skill for your Amazon Echo

As mentioned the extra modules come at a cost. Last year Headspace was offered as part of the BMA membership at a reduced rate (as mentioned in a previous eGPlearning Podblast episode).

Currently, the app is on offer for £44 for a year compared to £9.99 a month or £72 a year if paid annually. 

Another option is to sign up at a reduced rate via Anxiety UK as part of their membership. 

I do like the interface and it is simple to use, however, I would like to change the voice if possible to customise it more, also I can see how social sharing of goals can be a valuable asset, much how many running apps use this method as a motivator. However, I can also appreciate this is not a feature all users would want given how physical health and mental health are viewed. 

Feel free to given Headspace a try either for yourself or for patients. 

Do not forget to subscribe to our various channels and feel free to comment below or on the various channels.

eGPlearning PodBlast - Introducing the NHS App

Welcome to our deep dive episode on the upcoming NHS app - which we cover multiple areas of primary care and patient care. A highly opinionated episode which we encourage your comments and feedback on. 

1.00 Thank you Sponsor - HTN The Health Tech Newspaper (HTN)- an innovative daily news and opinion website for the health tech network.

1.40 Thank you to our followers: @SonaliKinra  @NottsLMC @NCGPANottm @Jacey_Melody @JThambyrajah @KalindiKrishna  @RcgpFaculties @2GPs_in_a_Pod , @DME_Health, @BenXGowland , @EvilGP and @drNickHarvey -creator of Digitalis

 

2.25 Andy has had a cold and been on a cruise

2.40 Gandhi has also had a holiday, working on TipThursday especially the Kardia Alivekor episode with a free resource on the episode available here. 

3.30 Today we are talking about the upcoming NHS app

 

We are going to talk about the app. This was inspired by a great article by our friends at Gizmodo. http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/08/exclusive-heres-what-the-new-nhs-app-will-look-like-and-why-it-could-have-been-so-much-worse/

 

The intentions behind the app are exactly what you might expect: Make it easier for patients to access healthcare services, cut down on administrative burden, and eventually provide a means to connect with other health apps, like Fitbit and Apple’s Health app.

 

Jeremy Hunt set out “8 challenges” for the app

  • (7.20) Symptom checking and triage (i.e. figuring out if you’re just being a hypochondriac or whether you should be in an ambulance right now)- eConsultation, webGP, babylon AI
  • (13.00) Access to your medical records and security issues. 
  • (23.10) GP appointment booking
  • (28.20) Repeat prescription ordering
  • (29.50) Changing data sharing preferences
  • (31.38) Changing organ donation preferences
  • (33.38) Changing end of life care choices - DNAR medical decision
  • (38.50) Promoting “approved apps” to patients - see the NHS app library and @OrchaUK

(42.50) Summary of our views (including a compliment for Jeremy Hunt!!!!) including the issue of photo ID verification to use the app. 

These are discussed in turn during the show...

Digitalis review

 

What is the Digitalis App

 

Who made it?

Dr Nick Harvey is a GP partner and trainer and his team http://digitalistechnology.co.uk/about-us/

 

App features and observations discussed:

  • Quickly add CPD entry, capture photos, documents, audio and video. Entries can be linked to CPD Curriculum and learning domains or PDP.
  • Free text search of your entries
  • Personalised my feed - Guidelines, HTN - our sponsor, BBC health news, Cochrane Database and many more. These can read and added directly to CPD
  • Notification & Messages
  • Share CPD activity, Ask questions, Link to other professionals, Ability to create and be a member of groups.
  • Andy is very excited about groups. Can facilitate creation of virtual study groups, peer motivation and discovery of learning and useful information.
  • Please join the eGPLearning Group!!!
  • Perhaps Digitalis will be able to crack the doctor-doctor messaging app market by using CPD and appraisal prep as the killer feature?
  • Ability to customise to your curriculum. RCGP curriculum available, but also other specialities and Royal Colleges Curriculums and other allied professionals such as nursing.
  • Potential to create groups spanning primary and secondary care and to ask questions about cases and care.

 

Any potential downsides

  • Links could be better
  • Aesthetics - could be better - but not too bad...

 

We would love to interview Nick Harvey or one of the Digitalis team in for interview?

 

AliveCor Live Unboxing

 

What is AliveCor?

Kardia Device and companion app for detection of Atrial Fibrillation (AF).

Some CCGs have been providing these to GP surgeries to assist with detecting AF.

Cost: $99.99

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s2CsGGYnv0

 

Why would we be interested in detecting AF?

AF often produces no symptoms and can be present for long periods of time (months-years) before detection and treatment. AF increases the risk of serious conditions, particularly stroke and arrhythmias.

 

Let’s take a look

First impressions from Andy for us - live unboxing and demonstration

More considered impressions from Andy who has used in practice

 

Impressions

Nicely packaged

Single sheet with 2 steps to work. VERY EASY TO USE.

Worked well and straight out of the box

Works on ANY phone or tablet device - does not require a locked down device

Can then record outcome manually in patient notes or export results as secure .pdf.

 

How would we use this in practice?

Quick screening of at risk patients, those where AF suspected, long term condition reviews, flu clinics?

Down to our Personal Genomics (10.30)

 

  • Definition: “Personal genomics or consumer genetics is the branch of genomics concerned with the sequencing, analysis and interpretation of the genome of an individual

 

Who are 23andMe?

US based startup founded 2006.

Direct to consumer personal genome testing

CEO Anne Wojcicki used to be married to google’s Sergy Brin, google an early investor

Spit in a tube and they will analyse your genetic material, mitochondiral and chromosomal and present the results

They give you the opportunity to:

  • See an ancestory report
  • Find genetic relations (who want to be found)
  • See a report about inherited traits - baldness, unibrow….
  • Be aware of genetics risks for serious health problems

 

The process?

  • Order the kit - £79 Ancestory, £149 full service
  • Register account
  • Spit in a tube and post back
  • Wait 2-3 weeks
  • HumanOmniExpress-24 format chip - partial SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) looks at parts of the genome known to vary between individuals.
  • Get an email saying results are ready
  • Look at results.
  • Can see
    • See an ancestry report
    • Find genetic relations (who want to be found)
    • See a report about inherited traits - baldness, unibrow….
    • Carrier status
    • Be aware of genetics risks for serious health problems

 

Ancestry

  • Allows users to view origins of mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA and see where ancestors came from around the world
  • Interesting, but beware unintended consequences and unwanted/unexpected information. May have implications for identity and family

 

Inherited traits

  • Largely for fun… Unibrows, Widows peaks, freckles and ability to smell asparagus and many more traits.

 

Carrier status

  • Innocently named, but quite serious stuff - Cystic Fibrosis and thalassemia carrier status for example. Information released without genetic counseling. Beware unexpected or unwanted information.

 

Genetic disease

  • When doing similar tests in this country within the NHS, an individual would undergo genetic counseling with an expert to ensure that the process and implications of testing are understood.
  • 23andMe allow you to see this information after clicking through just 8 screens, Beware unwanted information and remember that your family will share your genes, so you are also testing other family members as well. If you have a variant then a relative may have it too.
  • Explains that genetics is just one potential risk factor, environment important too, not diagnosis… “Talk to your healthcare provider to better understand how to manage your risk”...
  • If risk present then provides information about the test, the condition, treatments, how to manage risks and links to good quality information.

 

Privacy

  • Prominent information on website
  • Stated aim is to give you choice and control
  • Keep genetic information and personal information separate - linked via a confidential cipher
  • Under certain circumstances they may release data to law enforcement organisations
  • They will not share with insurance companies - Concordat and Moratorium on Genetics and Insurance - in effect until 2019!

 

What next for personal genomics?

  • 100,000 genomes project - people with established diagnosis of genetic disorder are having genes sequenced in search for new approaches to managing these conditions
  • Personalised medication and treatment?
  • Pre relationship testing/matching?
  • Insurance implications post 2019 moratorium
  • Pre-employment testing - Great film recommendation - GATACA

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DO_x-po_Nsc" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Correcting genetic mutations or treating more directly?

Would Andy recommend?

  • This was an interesting and in places fun process - There is a temptation to recommend it to those who fully understand the risk and are interested, particularly with regards to ancestry and traits.
  • BUT… Andy cannot recommended due to:
    • Risk of unexpected information
    • Lack of intervention for risks uncovered
    • Privacy concerns!!!
