Continuity of care matters and should be protected
Continuity of care – seeing the same GP – has proven benefits and could be a key line of defence against rising hospital admissions. So argue CAPC's Professor Chris Salisbury and Dr Peter Tammes in an editorial published recently in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).
Final report of five-year telehealth research programme published
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has published the final report of CAPC-led research on the use of telehealth in primary care settings for patients with long-term conditions. The research trialled a new telehealth intervention, Healthlines, which was found to be cost-effective for people at risk of cardiovascular disease but not for people with depression.
Call for stronger evidence base to support children exposed to domestic violence
Services for children who are exposed to domestic violence and abuse are vital, but NIHR-funded researchers have found that there is little evidence for what support works best. They make recommendations for where to focus research effort to ensure best outcomes for children and their families.
National guidance needed to help GPs document domestic violence
Guidance is urgently needed to help GPs decide what information to include on electronic records of children and families experiencing domestic violence and abuse (DVA). This is the conclusion of a study published online in the British Journal of General Practice.
