Welcome to Episode 9 of the official podcast of the Royal New Zealand College of Urgent Care.  Today I am joined by Dr Dave Sorrell to look back at recent Urgent Bites regarding Segond fractures, the Simmonds/Thompson test and using Antibiotics for UTI in the Elderly.  We also look at an interesting case of sub tarsal foreign body, talk about why kids are swallowing more foreign bodies than they used to and we talk about how the Junior Doctor Strikes affect Urgent Care.  We are then joined by Dr Afrax Adams to look at some college news including the upcoming Urgent Care Boot Camp.

Welcome to a CME specialist interview.  Today we speak with Professor Tony Attwood who is the adjunct Associate Professor of Psychology at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia and has 40 years experience as a Clinical Psychologist specialising in Autism and in particular Aspergers Syndrome.  

April is Autism awareness month.  Urgent Care clinics and Emergency Departments can be distressing places for people on the Autism Spectrum but we will often be the clinicians who treat them when they are acutely ill of injured.  Tony talks to us about why our Clinics cause distress to people with Autism, what we should be aware of and how we can mitigate some of these issues.  I hope that by the end of our talk we can all be more aware of Autism within Urgent Care Clinics and Emergency Departments and hopefully implement some of what we have discussed into your personal practice and clinic processes.

My Thanks to Professor Attwood for taking the time to talk with us.  You can read more about him at his website.
