The All-Around-Medicine Community

The purpose of this medical community is to create a possibility, where most of the needs of physicians, residents, medicals students, physician assistants, nurses, technologists and industry can be melted within one central medical network. It is based on a "taking and giving" principle, where you share your knowledge and others do the same.

Some features:

  • Share cases and your knowledge
  • Ask professionals for their opinion - in public or in private
  • Find people with similar interests, create new connections and expand your professional network
  • Discuss medical topics in dedicated forums - from residency to practice
  • Prepare for the USMLE / medical baords
  • Find tutorials and eLearning material
  • Share your images, videos, teaching files and lectures
  • Simplify your research and find partners worldwide
  • Create or join research and study groups
  • General and medical specific search engines
  • Read medical news from multiple subspecialties
  • Publishing case reports (cooperation with the JRCR)
  • Helpful tools for your daily work (calculators, case tracker, clinical, research tools, etc.)
  • ...and much more...

Establishing an infrastructure to support the development and delivery of clinical research in patients with kidney disease.
Authors: UK Kidney Research Consortium Abstract The UK Kidney Research Consortium (UKKRC) was established in 2007 to promote clinical research in adults and children affected by kidney disease. Clinical study groups (CSGs) are the core subgroups of UKKRC. The aim of the CSGs is to generate a portfolio of clinical studies that can and should be undertaken in the UK. Since 2007 the CSGs have helped develop and secure funding for 13 studies to a total value of £13443648. Funders include Kidney Research UK, Medical Research Council, British Heart Foundation and National Institute of Health Research (NIHR). The studies address the full translational pathway. UKKRC is thus a unique structure that dovetails with the NIHR Renal Disorders Specialty Group to generate and deliver a portfolio...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation - what the general physician needs to know.
Authors: Ruparelia N, Prendergast BD Abstract With an increasingly elderly population, the incidence of aortic stenosis (AS) is rising. While surgical aortic valve replacement remains the gold standard treatment for patients with severe symptomatic AS, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as the treatment of choice for patients who are inoperable or high surgical risk. TAVI has been shown to be associated with a clear mortality benefit when compared with medical therapy and to be at least as good as surgical aortic valve replacement in this patient group. The last few years have seen rapid development in this revolutionary technology in conjunction with increasing centre and operator experience, and indications for the procedure are swiftly expanding. In this ...

Improving the management of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhotic patients: assessment of an intervention in trainee doctors.
Authors: Rawson TM, Bouri S, Allen C, Ferreira-Martins J, Yusuf A, Stafford N, Pitcher M, Jacyna M Abstract Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) in cirrhotic patients is a serious complication associated with a high mortality rate. A baseline audit of the acute medical take (AMT) at Northwick Park suggested a lack of awareness regarding management. A questionnaire based on contemporary SBP guidelines was circulated to all trainee doctors (FY1 to SpR). Ascitic fluid testing requests were analysed over a six-month period. The electronic requesting system was updated to include prompts and direct links to Trust SBP guidelines, and a one-hour lecture to all members of the AMT, supported by an educational booklet on SBP, was performed. Re-audit was carried out six months post-interve...

Recognition and management of acute kidney injury in hospitalised patients can be partially improved with the use of a care bundle.
Authors: Joslin J, Wilson H, Zubli D, Gauge N, Kinirons M, Hopper A, Pile T, Ostermann M Abstract Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in hospitalised patients but is known be suboptimally managed; the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcomes and Death (NCEPOD) report in 2009 identified significant failings in AKI care. An audit, using standards suggested by the NCEPOD report, of all adult inpatients with AKI in a large central-London NHS hospital in a 7-day period in 2011 showed poor recognition and management of AKI. In response, an AKI 'care bundle' was developed and deployed throughout the hospital along with a programme of enhanced education. Re-audit in 2013 showed that AKI was significantly more likely to have been recognised by the clinical team than in 2011, and ...

Experience from two decades of the Cambridge Rapid Access Neurology Clinic.
We report on the evolution of the rapid access neurology clinic (established in 1995) at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. Annualised attendance data demonstrate an ever increasing demand, with primary headache disorders now accounting for more than 40% of referrals. Secondary causes of headache (including intracranial tumours, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, carotid or vertebral artery dissection and subdural haematomas) remain infrequent. In all such cases, there were additional diagnostic clues. The number of patients referred with problems related to chronic neurological diseases has fallen considerably, reflecting the roles of specialist nurses and clinics. Imaging investigation of choice shifted from computerised tomography scan (45 to 16%) towards magnetic resonance imaging (...

Management of cardiovascular conditions in a cohort of patients with HIV: experience from a joint HIV/cardiology clinic.
Authors: Koganti S, Kinloch-de Loes S, Hutchinson S, Johnson M, Rakhit RD Abstract The aim of this study was to assess cardiovascular diagnoses and management in a cohort of patients diagnosed with HIV, and the performance of a joint HIV/Cardiology Clinic in a tertiary hospital setting. A retrospective analysis was performed on all patients referred to a joint HIV/Cardiology Clinic at our hospital. Data on 120 patients were collected. In this predominantly male population (male 101 and female 19) coronary artery disease (CAD) was the most common diagnosis (34%, n = 41). Other diseases included hypertension (12.5%, n = 15), cardiomyopathy (12.5%, n = 15) and arrhythmia (6%, n = 8). The majority of remaining cases included non-cardiac chest pain and palpitations. In addition to usual...

Sexual health issues in adolescents and young adults.
Authors: Forsyth S, Rogstad K, BASHH Adolescent Special Interest Group Abstract Adolescence is a time of sexual risk-taking and experimentation but also vulnerability. Young people may present to general physicians with systemic symptoms of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as arthritis, hepatitis or rash, but may not necessarily volunteer information about sexual activity. It is important for physicians to ask directly about sexual risks and if appropriate test for STIs and pregnancy. Knowing how to take a sexual history and consent a patient for an HIV test are core medical skills that all physicians should be trained to competently perform. Safeguarding young people is the responsibility of all healthcare professionals who come into contact with them, and young victim...
