BSG Gastroenterology Handbook: A Guide for Junior Doctors Based On The Ward

Wednesday, 30 March 2016 13:59

This guide was written by three Trainee members of the BSG and reviewed by the members of the BSG Education Committee and Section Committees. The information is based on established guidelines, whenever possible. As there is likely to be some variation in practice between hospitals, and local policies may be in effect, readers are advised to contact senior members of staff to point them in the direction of relevant local guidelines, for example antibiotic protocols. It is not intended to be the sole source of information for a junior doctor, but instead to complement the resources and guidance provided by the individual Trusts in which they work.

The authors and the BSG as a whole hope that this guide will be an invaluable tool in your day-to-day care of gastroenterology patients. We recognize that these patients are often complex and acutely unwell, and hope that this handbook will give the hands-on advice readers may need to guide patient management. Based on information available at the time of writing, the authors have provided practical tips, relevant guidelines and suggestions from their own experience. In each acute condition, they provide a structure for assessment and focused examination.

Genomics in mainstream medicine

Genomics in mainstream medicine: an initiative to raise awareness and promote genomics amongst physicians in the UK

Recent developments in genomics (such as the 100,000 genomes project) have underlined the need to ensure that the medical workforce understands the opportunities and possesses the relevant knowledge, skills and competence to deliver care using genomic information. The Genomics in Mainstream Medicine Working Group was established under the auspices of the Joint Committee on Genomics in Medicine and a number of other organisations to raise awareness and to promote the integration of genomics into clinical practice across a wide range of clinical specialties. To facilitate this, ‘clinical champions’ have been recruited via the Royal College of Physicians specialty committees to help develop introductory resources and an action plan for promoting genomics within their own specialties. Work to date has included the development of a document ‘template’ for champions to adapt and use as an introductory resource within their specialty, and the ‘mapping’ of the education landscape for physicians (with the aid of a survey sent out to key stakeholders) to identify genomics education initiatives that are already in place.
