The development and production of a novel Smartphone App to collect day-to-day feedback from doctors-in-training and their trainers
by TG Gray, G Hood, T Farrell – BMJ Innovations, 2015
Extract from BMJ Innovations 2015
Feedback drives learning in medical education. More regular multisource feedback would improve appraisal for doctors-in-training in the UK. Trainers currently receive little feedback on supervision they provide to doctors-in-training. Barriers against providing feedback include shortage of time and lack of clear mechanisms to do so.

The discourse of leaderism in health care has been a subject of much academic and practical debate. Recently, distributed leadership (DL) has been adopted as a key strand of policy in the UK National Health Service (NHS). However, there is some confusion over the meaning of DL and uncertainty over its application to clinical and non-clinical staff. This article examines the potential for DL in the NHS by drawing on qualitative data from three co-located health-care organisations that embraced DL as part of their organisational strategy.

Message from NICE Evidence
NICE and Elsevier have announced that access to The Lancet (electronic) will continue to be made available for a further 12 months (1 January 2015 – 31 December 2015).
In order to secure equitable access to The Lancet we have had to negotiate the removal of access to the print version of the journal.
You will no longer receive a print copy of the Lancet from 1 January 2015.
The Staff Library will however, still be accepting those paper journals which we receive as donations, including HSJ.
The unusual sound of Italian accented English drifted through the library this morning when 6 Italian nurses visited as part of their Induction programme @EastCheshireNHS Trust.
We’d like to give a warm welcome to Stephanie, Fabrizio, Mary, Mattia, Vito and Giovani as they start work on the wards later this week – hope to see you again soon. ‘Ciao’
Getting into the festive spirit in the countdown to Christmas, library staff are inviting colleagues, staff and students to join them for coffee and a mince pie today.
For a few blissful minutes, forget your shopping list and what to buy for Auntie Jean – instead come along between 10am – 4pm, have a look round the library, relax and perhaps pick out some holiday reading for Boxing Day?
Look forward to seeing you later.

“New guidelines from NICE could see thousands more babies born outside of hospital every year.
Nearly 700,000 babies were born in England and Wales last year, nine out of 10 of whom were delivered in hospital under the ultimate supervision of obstetricians, but NICE wants women to be given greater freedom to choose where they give birth.”
