Haematology case-control observational study at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital
Ben_Zuckerman
Haematology Project at Guy’s Hospital This is an observational case-control study looking at the demographic and clinical characteristics of a sub-population of patients that have myeloid malignancy. This project will require 3 students to collect data on our cohort of patients starting as soon as possible. The students involved will understand how to analyse the data and discuss it within the context of current literature. Students must be from King’s College London and preferably be pre-clinical (years 2 or 3), or intercalating students. Additionally, it will be looked favourably if you have access to electronic patient records at Guy’s and St Thomas’ trust (please mention explicitly whether you have this or not as we will need to help you gain access). Students will be mentored by two 4th year medical students that have been working on this project for the last two academic years, as well as Dr Kordasti, a senior lecturer at King’s College London and honorary Haematologist at Guy’s Hospital. The aim of this project is to analyse the data to publish as a paper and/or present in an international conference. The overarching output will be a publishable paper; all students involved will be credited as an author of this work. The time commitment required is a few days of work a week, this can be tailored to suit your schedule and something we can discuss. We would like passionate and enthusiastic students to be involved, this will be a great CV opportunity. We look forwards to your application.

Scoping review to identify remote rehabilitation interventions that would be appropriate to use in COVID rehabilitation
Julie_Whitney
Many people who have been unwell with COVID-19 are suffering long-term problems with their fitness and ability to participate in usual activities of daily life. Symptoms include muscle weakness, breathlessness, changes in sensation, pain and fatigue. There are also effects on psychological and mental health. Rehabilitation could help with these issues. However, there are challenges in providing this rehabilitation because so many patients need to access these services and because face to face treatment is not always possible due to social distancing. There has been increasing interest in remote rehabilitation interventions from researchers and App. developers in recent years. Remote interventions use technology such as video, smartphone applications and interactive conferencing (i.e. Zoom) to deliver rehabilitation programmes. We will search for evidence about remote rehabilitation interventions and application stores to identify existing remote interventions that might meet the needs of COVID-19 survivors. This information will allow rehabilitation teams to direct patients to suitable remote interventions. This may be needed to replace or to enhance their rehabilitation programme. We require 4-6 medical students to help with abstract screening and data extraction. No experience is necessary. Students required ASAP!

Assessing adherence to CPAP using the COM-B Framework
Dr Deeban Ratneswaran
This is a long term involvement (1 year) which requires a student who is interested in developing research skills from the off-set: hypothesis generation, proposal formulation, item design and development and implementation. Once ready our research will have ethical approval ready to go, and I will support statistical analysis. This will form part of my PhD work, of which we will be publishing various aspects in parts; however, the focus of this work will be on developing long term research skills and not a quick turn over publication. Learning about these various aspects will be useful for an academic interview. The team support this work will included: Dr Deeban Ratneswaran Professor Joerg Steier (KCL lecturer, Respiratory consultant) Professor John Weinman (Clinical director, Institute of Psychiatry) If you are interested in joining my team on this project, please apply here.

The effect of slow, deep breathing on gastrointestinal pain: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Mohsin Butt
Slow, deep breathing has been shown to activate the vagus nerve - the longest of the cranial nerves which courses from the brainstem to the gastrointestinal tract, innervating multiple viscerae en-route. In a preliminary study, deep breathing has been shown to prevent the development of acid-induced oesophageal hypersensitivity in comparison with sham breathing. This effect was pharmacologically blocked with atropine, thus providing evidence that the parasympathetic nervous system (i.e. vagus nerve) influences the development of oesophageal pain hypersensitivity. In general, vagus nerve stimulation has been shown as a promising therapeutic tool in the management of pain, and is NICE approved for the management of cluster headache. The overall aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis would be to provide an overview of studies that have been published hitherto which look at the relationship between slow, deep breathing and gastrointestinal pain. Further reading / references: https://gut.bmj.com/content/64/4/611.abstract https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/joa.13122 Update **Thank you to the very many people who signed up this project. We have been overwhelmed by the response and it is so encouraging to see medical students interested in neurogastroenterology. Unfortunately, the project aims have changed as I have been made aware that another group is already looking at the deep breathing and visceral pain landscape. Apparently, more papers addressing this field will be released later this year, so it wouldn't be worthwhile to pursue a systematic review at this particular time. However, I am liaising with our PI and we are thinking of other visceral pain systematic reviews, which will most likely be related to the relationship between personality / psychopathology and pain perception in functional gastrointestinal diseases, like IBS. If neuro/psychogastroenterology is a field you are interested to learn more about, please still sign up to this particular project and I will update you as soon as we have the new project aims. Keep safe during this period. My e-mail address is m.butt@qmul.ac.uk if you would like to get in touch directly. All the best.**

South London Respiratory QI Collaboration
Sam
Trainees are often involved in QI projects and may help data collection for national clinical audit. Respiratory registrars in South London rotate in April or October and sometimes will leave behind a project that requires more work. If trainees could share their projects on an online portal ideas would be shared, promoting good practice, and projects could be handed over to incoming trainees. The project started with a scoping phase. An online survey was sent to all respiratory registrars in South London. 100% (13/13) showed interest in a platform to enable QI project collaboration. Platforms may exist in the Midlands and North London however no further details have been found. A platform exists for sharing research opportunities for anaesthetic trainees. Remarxs is a platform for sharing academic projects, predominantly used in South London, and was chosen as the platform for this project. The implementation phase will include communication with all trainees in South London.

Create an online interactive Q&A forum for COVID-19 questions addressed by Medical professionals
Kevin
During the COVID pandemic there is a second sinister pandemic beneath the surface. The pandemic of fear and misinformation. As a Doctor, I have been inundated with questions from friends and relatives about COVID. This includes its origins, its impact and the management. I felt the duty to answer these questions and dispel any myths and misinformation. That's why I created a COVID Q&A page on Remarxs. The general public can ask questions anonymously and have these answered by doctors; that's were you come in. I am assembling a team of doctors that are willing to answer these questions in a well-researched manner, including references, with the name of the doctor, serving as an additional layer of trust and accountability. Once a member of the public has created a question, it will appear on a dashboard that you will have access to. You can then "pick up" the question and answer it. It will allow you to add references, external links and accompanying graphics. Once you "mark as answered" it will be made viewable to the public. If this project interests you, then join me in the fight against misinformation! Given our value in society, I feel it is noble for us to take the mantle and provide up-to-date and accurate information to the public.
