Background null Identifying predictors of success in postgraduate examinations can help guide the career choices of medical students and may aid early identification of trainees requiring extra support to progress in specialty training. We assessed whether performance on the educational performance measurement (EPM) and situational judgement test (SJT) used for selection into foundation training predicted success at the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) examination. null Methods...

OBJECTIVE Despite rising numbers of doctors in the workforce with disabilities, little is known about the impact of disabilities on postgraduate performance. To ensure all groups are treated fairly in surgical training, it is essential to know whether any attainment differences exist in markers of surgical performance. To address this gap, we assessed the impact of disabilities on performance on the Intercollegiate Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons examination (MRCS). DESIGN Retrospect...

Abstract Background Fitness to practice (FtP) investigations by the General Medical Council (GMC) safeguard patients and maintain the integrity of the medical profession. The likelihood of FtP sanctions is influenced by specialty and socio-demographic factors and can be predicted by performance at postgraduate examinations. This is the first study to characterise the prevalence of FtP sanctions in early-career surgeons and to examine the association with performance at the Membership of the Roya...

Medical schools in the UK typically use prior academic attainment and an admissions test (University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT), Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT) or the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT)) to help select applicants for interview. To justify their use, more information is needed about the predictive validity of these tests. Thus, we investigated the relationship between performance in admissions tests and the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) exa...

Background Patients' peak inspiratory flow rate (PIFR) may help clinicians select an inhaler device. Objective To determine the proportion of patients with asthma who could generate correct PIFRs at different inhaler resistance settings. Methods During a UK asthma review service, patients' PIFR was checked at resistance settings matching their current preventer inhaler device, at R5 (high-resistance dry powder inhaler [DPI]) and at R0 (low resistance, pressurized metered dose inhaler [pMDI]). Co...

Patients’ peak inspiratory flow rate (PIFR) may help clinicians select a suitable inhaler device. The In-Check® device has gained some status as a simple tool to estimate PIFR (scale reflecting inhaler resistance from R0 to R5). It has been suggested that some patients with asthma may not be able to generate sufficient PIFR with high resistance devices (R5) to satisfy the minimum requirements of 30 L/min. We conducted a prospective service evaluation study to identify what proportion of patients...

BACKGROUND AND AIM Buprenorphine (BUP) maintenance treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD) begins with supervised daily dosing. We estimated the clinical effectiveness of a novel incentivised medication adherence and abstinence monitoring protocol in BUP maintenance to enable contingent access to increasing take-home medication supplies. DESIGN Two-arm, single-centre, pragmatic, randomised controlled trial of outpatient BUP maintenance, with during-treatment follow-ups at 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 we...
