Step 3 - Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding

Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should: Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding. If the hospital has an affiliated antenatal clinic or antenatal ward...breastfeeding counseling [should be] given to most pregnant women using those services...The antenatal discussion should cover the importance of exclusive breastfeeding for the first 4-6 months, the benefits of breastfeeding, and basic breastfeeding management...Pregnant women of 32 weeks or more gestation...should confirm that the benefits of breastfeeding have been discussed with them...[including] at least two of the following benefits: Nutritional, protective, bonding, health benefits to the mother...and that they have received no group education on the use of infant formula. They should be able to describe at least two of the following breastfeeding management topics: importance of rooming-in, importance of feeding on demand, how to assure enough milk, and positioning and attachment. The third step is to have sessions with pregnant women to motivate them for breastfeeding and to remove all their doubts.

If the vast majority of babies were exclusively fed breastmilk in their first six months of life -- meaning only breastmilk and no other liquids or solids, not even water -- it is estimated that the lives of at least 1.2 million children would be saved every year. If children continue to be breastfed up to two years and beyond, the health and development of millions of children would be greatly improved. This video series aims to raise awareness, encourage early adoption, promote training of health care staff, and build capacity for, and to stimulate dialogue about, breastfeeding and its impact on the public, in a range of community and public contexts in low- and middle-income countries. Our goal is to have these ten steps in every facility providing maternal services and care for newborn infants. Videos, presentations, research, evidence, papers, training and counselling materials, tools, and many other related and supporting resources are available. Visit us on-line a http://tensteps.org .

Drinking and Driving: Why do we have a limit?

The current GCSE science curriculum expects students to undertake a module about ‘drink-driving’. This requires students to consider whether the drink-drive limit in the UK should be zero. The highest number of drink-drive related accidents is observed in younger age groups; current campaigns preach a ‘don’t drink and drive’ message, but do not provide a balanced argument to demonstrate reasons for this. I produced a booklet aimed at 14-18 year olds to support the GCSE science curriculum and to aid general understanding of why we have a drink-drive limit in the UK. The booklet is designed to stimulate original thought and understanding, in accordance with Piaget’s theory of assimilation and accommodation. I conducted a thorough learning needs assessment and delivered an initial teaching session to a group of GCSE students. Their feedback helped to guide my development of a final resource in the format of an interactive booklet. Although drink-drive campaigns feature regularly in the media, this age group is often overlooked, as many are not yet able to drive. My resource is not aimed to echo these campaigns, but to support understanding of why they might exist. It also ties in with GCSE science curriculum, and can be used as an aid to coursework by students. Helping students of this age to gain a basic understanding of ‘drink-driving’ and stimulating them to form their own views and opinions may influence their future behaviours and attitudes.

Interactive Learning Resource - MCQ website

The site contains an extensive range of MCQs and “fill in the blank” style questions for years one through to five of my Medical degree at Leeds. The site can be viewed here; http://mcqs.leedsmedics.org.uk The site proved to be very popular. It has had over 18,000 page loads in the last month, with an average of 244 visitors per day. I decided to extend it so that it could provide a wider range of information source for medical students. I did this by approaching the MSRC as I felt that they could benefit greatly from a website. The resulting website now contains a wealth of study resources, links to other student groups, and links to useful information sources (e.g. finance, accommodation, personal support). The site also keeps medical students up to date with news around the medical school and provides a port of call for those wishing to contact members of the MSRC or buy ‘Leeds Medics’ tops from an ethical supplier. This site has also proved to be very popular, with over 4000 page loads in the last month and an average of 77 unique visitors per day. It also gives potential medical students a professional looking point of contact with current students at Leeds. I have now finished my final exams, but I have handed over instructions for how the site can be managed and updated to the IT Rep in the MSRC and hope that it will continue to provide a useful resource for students studying medicine for years to come. The site can be viewed here; http://msrc.leedsmedics.org.uk, and the section with MCQs can be viewed here; http://mcqs.leedsmedics.org.uk

Abdominal Imaging Lecture

I made this lecture during my elective this year as I was teaching at the Graduate Entry medical school. As i haad gone through the same process I knew that we didn't have much teaching in terms of a general introduction to radiology, especially abdominal radiology. Therefore with the help of my supervisor I delivered this lecture to a group of 50 students and recieved some very good feedback. The lecture also had a handout that students could fill in as we went along.

Allergies and anaphylaxis

This session was designed to teach first year medical students about allergies and the basic medical management of anaphylaxis. The session was student led with a tutor in the audience to help provoke discussion and encourage students to participate. The session utilised an interactive smart-board with touch-screen function in order to get students involved in learning. Although the information is not overly complex it is a good introduction to the topic and promoted student involvement as well as group interaction and teamwork.

Cranial Nerves Examination

This video tutorial teaches a comprehensive approach to cranial nerves examination. It is part of the MedPrep video tutorial series: http://www.medprep.in/clinical-examination-videos.php On YouTube, the MedPrep video tutorial series has received nearly 24,000 hits. The video series features myself, Sohaib Rufai, third year medical student at the University of Southampton, along with Iftkhar Hussein, an Economics student at the University of Manchester playing the patient, and Fahad Khan, a Clinical Sciences student at the University of Bradford, filming. The videos were then edited by myself. The aim was to produce a useful video series that is easy to follow, at times adding a bit of humour. The patient also put in extra time at the gym especially for the videos. The MedPrep website has been developed by a group of us at University of Southampton, aiming to provide free useful learning aids for medical students.

Layered Learning

This is a work booklet, which helps students gain or reinforce knowledge of the anatomy of the posterior lower leg. Using multi-sensory and artistic techniques the students are guided through creating their own three-dimensional, layered anatomical paper model. This technique can be applied to any anatomical structure, along with physiological or pathological processes, and transformed into learning work booklets for students.

Femoral Nerve Block – A Guide for Medial Students and Junior Doctors.

I completed this article in collaboration with a senor registrar whilst studying as an undergraduate medical student in Dundee. This article outlines the proposed introduction of a technique that employs ultrasound to visualise the femoral nerve whilst performing a femoral nerve block. This procedure is performed on patients in both the emergency dept and surgical theatres. Traditionally this procedure has been performed using a 'blind technique' which has an increased association with side effects including inadvertent damage to local structures and systemic toxicity related to local anaesthetic. In the article we give a brief outline of both the the traditional and ultrasound guided techniques and allow readers to understand the benefits of using the proposed technique. We believe that this article will be of great interest to senior medical student and junior doctors who are interested in careers in emergency medicine and anaesthesia. This

Living with Mental Illness - A Student's Guide

Living with Mental Illness - A Student's Guide was created during a 3rd year SSC project to develop mental health e-learning resources for 3rd year medical students at the University of Leeds. The aim was to create a resource for medical students' personal learning and understanding of the implications of living with a mental health disorder, and the stigma surrounding it. The document contains information about stigma in mental illness, interviews with people living with a mental illness, and a poem written by one of the interviewees.
