This is really good for all the contraceptive types and you can read the comments people have put to see what the public's opinion on each is v useful

Agree with Lisa that comment from public/patients on various forms of contraception is very useful here. In general very good info as usual from the NHS Choices site.

Scare stories about the pill in the media are common. Is this information or misinformation? How do you explain risk to the public - especially relative risk? Why do newspapers like this type of story? Is this about selling copies - sex and death in the same story - or a concern to inform?

Anne Marie Cunningham's comment, February 3, 2014 5:06 PM
Hello Dr Stone! I saved the Telegraph version of this story to this topic last night and asked almost the same questions as you. Do you think that the Telegraph's coverage is substantially different? I also linked back to the 1995 pill scare - I hope this one doesn't have the same impact.

This story has echoes of the 1995 'pill scare' which lead to a 9% increase in the number of terminations http://www.independent.co.uk/news/abortions-rise-by-8-per-cent-after-contraceptive-pill-scare-1252061.html How can these risks be explained in a meaningful way to patients and public?

I'll probably need this at some point...

REMS: examination of the knee. Should be helpful for Case 1 and for the GALS examination that we have learned in Clinical Skills.

Kate Gregory's curator insight, January 12, 2015 12:34 PM

Useful video showing how to clinically examine the knee
