Abstract

Alcohol is a leading cause of physical, psychological and social harm. In this review, we explain the current categorisation of alcohol use disorders in the context of these harms. We then discuss the rationale and recommended methods for screening for these disorders in primary care, and the principles of treatment.

Abstract

Teenage pregnancy is frequently encountered by general practitioners who are often the teenager’s first encounter with the health services. Despite falling rates and intense government initiatives over the past decade to address high rates of teenage pregnancy, the United Kingdom continues to have one of the highest teenage birth rates in Western Europe. Teenagers have unique social and medical issues in pregnancy which require careful management from their general practitioners to help optomise pregnancy outcomes and reduce recurrence of repeat pregnancy.
