Being involved in Emergency Care, by it’s very nature, sadly means that we will have to break bad news to patients and families both in the prehospital & in-hospital setting.

Breaking bad news well has benefits to both the recipient of that news and also to the provider delivering it. Teaching and education on the topic can be difficult to access and not always prioritised.

In this episode we run through some of the evidence around breaking bad news, techniques and structures to follow and talk about the practicalities of adopting these, along with our own varied personal thoughts and styles.

We hope listening to the podcast gives you an opportunity to reflect on how we could all work and improve on breaking bad news and also helps to make the process a little bit easier.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.

Enjoy!

Welcome back to the papers of the month podcast!

First up we take a look at a paper assessing the importance of symptoms and sings in suspected Cauda Equina cases and consider which factors we should be giving weight to, including whether a PR is appropriate.

Next up we take a look at a paper looking at electrical injuries presenting to the Emergency Department, the risk of significant injury and the appropriate investigations to perform on both high and low energy voltage injuries.

Lastly we take a look a paper looking at the use of vasopressin and steroids in in-hospital cardiac arrest and see what effect in has in the latest RCT.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.

Enjoy!
