    Ep 106 – Sexual violence (part 1)

    Ep 106 – Sexual violence (part 1)

    Understanding sexual violence is vitally important in primary care. A GP may be the first (or only) individual spoken to by a person who has experienced sexual violence. But how often does the experience disclosed represent the full scope of the issue? How much sexual violence goes unreported? What has changed about our understanding of sexual violence and its context? In this episode, the first of a series looking at this topic, Dr James Waldron speaks with Hayley Wilson (Consent and Sexual Violence Development Officer at Nottingham Trent University) about the spectrum of problems related to sexual violence and the critical importance of understanding this topic and responding well from the outset.Access episode show notes containing key references and take-home points at: https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/general-information/ep-106-sexual-violence-part-1 (https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/general-information/ep-106-sexual-violence-part-1).Did you know?

    Ep 105 – Empathy: who cares? Exploring empathy in health care

    Ep 105 – Empathy: who cares? Exploring empathy in health care

    In this episode, Dr Hannah Rosa discusses a topic which is at the heart of good clinical care: empathy. Research has shown that empathy decreases as medical students progress through medical school and that in society empathy levels have fallen over recent decades. But what does this mean for us working in primary care? What are the benefits that increasing empathy in our clinical practice can bring, and how can we all develop this vital skill?Access episode show notes containing key references and take-home points at: https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/mental-health/ep-105-empathy-who-cares-exploring-empathy-in-health-care (https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/mental-health/ep-105-empathy-who-cares-exploring-empathy-in-health-care).Did you know?

    Ep 102 – Diverticular disease

    Diverticular disease is a condition characterised by the presence of small pouches, called diverticula, in the wall of the colon (large intestine). These pouches can develop when weak spots in the colon's muscular wall give way under pressure. Diverticular disease encompasses two main conditions: diverticulosis and diverticulitis. In this episode, Dr Roger Henderson takes an overview look at the symptoms and management of these as well as their prognosis and prevention.Access episode show notes containing key references and take-home points at: https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/gastroenterology/ep-102-diverticular-disease (https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/gastroenterology/ep-102-diverticular-disease).Did you know?

    Ep 101 – Coeliac disease

    Ep 101 – Coeliac disease

    Coeliac disease (CD) is a chronic autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the small intestine and is triggered by the consumption of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and sometimes oats. When individuals with CD ingest gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the lining of the small intestine. This damage impairs the absorption of nutrients from food, leading to various symptoms and potentially serious complications. In this episode, Dr Roger Henderson looks at the diagnosis, testing and management of CD, along with the importance of longer-term follow-up in people with it.Access episode show notes containing key references and take-home points at: https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/gastroenterology/ep-101-coeliac-disease (https://gpnotebook.com/en-GB/podcasts/gastroenterology/ep-101-coeliac-disease).Did you know?
