Vicky, Pete, Nick and Emma talk about the realities of being the med reg on-call. It’s not as bad as you think! We also discuss different reasons for going out of programme during geriatric training.
Pete and Nick are joined by AEME founder Mark Garside and consultant geriatrician and TV star Zoe Wyrko. At the end of the conference they reflect on Geriatrics for Juniors 2017 including what they learned from the day.
Pete and Nick are joined by Claire McDonald and Sarah Richardson who are both academic geriatricians. Together, they talk about how to get into academic work and research within geriatrics including academic clinical fellow posts.
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.
