Welcome to this week's Urgent Bite.  In Episode 3 Dr Kevin Bell mentioned Vestibular Rehab in relation to concussion management.  So to find out what this involves and how it works I have spoken with Physiotherapist Ronen Buser.

Many thanks to Ronen for his time and to Lisa Hansen for getting us together

Welcome to a Podcast Extra feature.  Last week we sat down with three doctors who are based in Ireland but were in Auckland to sit the UCPEX exams.  We talk to them about their experiences studying the course from the other side of the world, flying all this way for an exam, their plans for the future and how Urgent Care in Ireland compares to New Zealand.  

Many thanks to Dr John Morley, Dr Nadine Du Rand and Dr Zeeshaan Khan for making time in their hectic pre-exam schedule to speak with the podcast.

Welcome to this week's Urgent Bite.  Today we reflect on a recent article in BPAC concerning topical antibiotics.  The use of these treatments in the last year has halved but there are calls to reduce the use still further.  So when should we use them?

Welcome to this week's Urgent Bite.  Today we look at recent comments in the BMJ from 2 of the UK's Medical Defence organisations regarding the use of online translation tools in clinical practice.  Should we use them in consultations with patients when there is a language barrier?

Welcome to this week's Urgent Bite.  Today we look at a gentle yet effective way to reduce Anterior Shoulder Dislocations.  It is a single operator technique and requires no sedation so could prove handy in the Urgent Care setting.  It is called the Cunningham Technique and you can see it explained by the creator in the You Tube link below.
