Polypharmacy for junior doctors

Pete and Nick are joined by geriatric registrars Emma and Chris. In this COTEcast we are tackling the issues around polypharmacy in the elderly. We discuss why it is a problem and how to manage it. We also offer some tips for junior doctors who are starting new jobs soon on how to approach a patient with polypharmacy.

Reflections from the British Geriatrics Society Spring conference

Pete, Vicky and Nick are live at the British Geriatrics Society Spring Conference and are joined by ACCS acute medicine trainee Lily Shevlin. They discuss what they have learned from the conference, important topics such as DNACPR forms and treatment escalation plans, fears of being the medical registrar and how to attract more junior doctors to the field of geriatric medicine.
