      Physical description

      Notes
      • Proceedings of the 31st Advanced Medicine Conference held at the Royal College of Physicians of London.
      Summary
      • Continuing medical education is being increasingly valued in keeping doctors up to date in their clinical practice. Equally, for those studying for their MRCP (UK) parts 1 and 2, up-to-date contact with the growing edge of clinical science is of paramount importance. The recent editions of "Horizons in Medicine" serve these joint aims. In providing an accurate summary of the "RCP Advances in Medicine Conference", this publication highlights those facts important for the clinician who wishes to be kept up to date. Volume six deliberately focuses on common human diseases, and deals with the new NHS research and development initiative. The text is a useful way of keeping up to date with important developments in medicine.

      Precision medicine for early breast cancer radiotherapy: Opening up new horizons?.

      Summary
      • AbstractSo far most efforts put forth to test the value of predictive and prognostic tools in the field of breast radiotherapy remained globally disappointing, or at least below the convincing levels reached for systemic therapy. Nevertheless the addition of predictive tools to the clinical armament tends to prevail over the use of the sole prognostic factors, also in radiotherapy. A number of predictive assays, clinically validated or not, have recently elicited significant associations between molecular profiles and tumor biological aggressiveness and/or radiosensitivity levels. Will it take a long time for these radiation-specific assays to provide added value to the – already crowded – constellation of predictive tools in the breast cancer? On the one hand, optimizing radiotherapy through the integration of precision medicine into the breast cancer management still remains a challenging issue. On the other hand, recent advances in predictive assays aimed at distinguishing patients with a more radioresistant tumor that necessitates radiation dose escalation or a switch to therapeutic approaches other than radiotherapy, plea in favor of an increasing role, in a near future, for radiation-specific molecular signatures. Streamlining predictive assays platforms via concerted actions should imperatively be given high priority, also in terms of health economics.

      Title

      New horizons in care home medicine.

      Summary
      • Care home medicine has been an under-researched area, but over the last decade there has been a substantial growth in publications. Most of these have focused on the ‘geriatric giants’ of falls, incontinence and mental health issues (especially dementia, behavioural disturbance and depression) as well as other key topics such as medication use and issues related to death and dying. Other areas of recent interest are around access to health services for care home residents, how such services may most effectively be developed and how the quality of life for residents can be enhanced. While many of the reported studies are small and not always well designed, evidence in several areas is emerging which begins to guide service developments. A common theme is that multi-disciplinary interventions are the most effective models of delivery. The role of care home staff as members of these teams is key to their effectiveness. Recent consensus guidelines around falls prevention in care homes synthesise the evidence and recommend multi-disciplinary interventions, and clarify the role of vitamin D and of exercise in certain populations in the care home. The benefits of pharmacist led medication reviews are beginning to emerge; although studies reviewed to date have not yet led to the ‘holy grail’ of hospital admission avoidance they point to benefits in reduction of drug burden. Effectiveness may be enhanced when working with GPs and care home nurses. Welcome evidence is emerging that in the UK the rate of prescription of anti-psychotics has fallen. This is clear evidence that changes in practice around care homes can be effected. The poor access to non-pharmacological therapies for care home residents with behavioural disturbance remains a significant gap in service. End-of-life care planning and delivery is an important part of care in care homes, and there is evidence that integrated pathways can improve care; however, the use of palliative care medications was limited unless specialist care staff were involved. Integrated models of care that focus on resident-centred goals and which value the role of care home staff as members of the team working to deliver these goals are most likely to result in improvements in the quality of care experienced by care home residents.
