Naomi Laskar teaches James Cassidy in an interactive video on chest pain on the surgical ward. Using a series of cases common causes of chest pain are discussed and the video will help you to develop a structured approach to reviewing chest pain and understand the basic management of chest pain. Common life threatening and non life threatening causes are covered, with important points in the history, examination, investigation, treatment and prognosis explained, with plenty of acronyms to help you remember. Pause the video as you go to write down what you think are the correct answers. All the benefits of small group teaching without any of the pain!

It is not uncommon to be called to see a patient who has experienced a sudden change in their mental state. The patient is often suffering from one of the forms of delirium, and puts them at increased risk of complication, injury and death.

Assessing the capacity of patients is an essential skill for all doctors, not least surgeons, as it is intimately related to taking consent and treating any patient correctly.
In one of the most important podcasts from the School of Surgery, Ricky Ellis and Christine Taylor discuss capacity, the Mental Capacity Act, how to assess and enhance capacity and how to care for patients without capacity. The 5 key principles of the Mental Capacity Act are clearly explained as is how to act in the best interest of patients without capacity - for example, the unconscious patient who requires life threatening surgery, with a best interests checklist to help you do thing correctly. How to deal with Advanced Directives or advanced decisions to refuse treatment is clearly explained here too.
Its a long podcast but not knowing about issues related to capacity can lead to charges of assault being brought or omission of care leading to charges of negligence.
This may be one of the most important 20 minutes you can spend, whether you are a medical student, doctor or anyone else involved in the treatment of patients.
