New website: Morsels of Evidence

Posted in Good Websites, May Su, Michael Tam at 10:51 by Michael Tam

Morsels of Evidence is a new website dedicated to providing brief, digestible and clinically relevant articles on contemporaneous published evidence from medical journals to Australian general practitioners working in primary health care.  It is hoped that this will help assist GPs to practice evidence based medicine by translating findings in medical research to clinical practice suggestions.

Each article is prefaced with an “evidence cookie”; an evidence based summary that can be absorbed in a glance.  A more detailed summary follows for those whose appetite for knowledge has been whetted.

The first evidence based morsel will be published next week on 5th January 2011, and further articles will be published on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Chances are that these resources are somewhat illicit. Nevertheless, the convenience of being able to search through your favourite textbooks (rather than the tedium of looking through the page of contents and index) is extraordinary. In fact, it completely changes the act of studying!

Get them while they’re still available!

GP Psych Support

As a general practice registrar, I have always found mental health interesting, though challenging. Perhaps more so than other specialities, one can often be stumped on exactly how to proceed with management. Add into the mix that community mental health services are relatively thin on the ground, it can be one big headache trying to give the best possible care (or even, adequate level of care).

There is, however, a fantastic service available for General Practitioners – the GP Psych Support.
