Babes and boobs? analysis of JAMA cover art. (1/61)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the representation of the sexes in JAMA cover art. DESIGN: Review of 50 consecutive issues. SETTING: JAMA, March 1997-March 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Numbers and nature of covers portraying men and women. RESULTS: Of the 50 covers, 34 depicted humans. 15 depicted women, 13 men, and 6 were of mixed or indeterminate sex. 11 pictures of women included a child and five included nudity. One cover showed a man with a child (not as a father) and none depicted nudity. Men were depicted exclusively in authoritative roles. CONCLUSIONS: Much of the cover art gives strong messages about sexual stereotypes that are inappropriate in modern society. JAMA should consider reviewing its policy for choosing cover art.  (+info)

Brandon/Hill selected list of print books and journals in allied health. (2/61)

This list of 424 books and 77 journals is intended as a selection guide for print literature to be used in a library supporting allied health educational programs or allied health personnel in either an academic or health care setting. Because of the impossibility of covering the large number and wide variety of allied health professions and occupations, the recommended publications are focused primarily on the educational programs listed and recognized by the American Medical Association and other accrediting bodies. Books and journals are categorized by subject; the book list is followed by an author/editor index, and the subject list of journals by an alphabetical title listing. Items suggested for initial purchase (167 books and 31 journals) are indicated by asterisks. To purchase the entire collection of books and journals (2000 subscriptions) would require an expenditure of about $31,970. The cost of only the asterisked items totals $12,515.  (+info)

Reporting by physicians of impaired drivers and potentially impaired drivers. The Committee on Bioethical Issues of the Medical Society of the State of New York. (4/61)

Physicians routinely care for patients whose ability to operate a motor vehicle is compromised by a physical or cognitive condition. Physician management of this health information has ethical and legal implications. These concerns have been insufficiently addressed by professional organizations and public agencies. The legal status in the United States and Canada of reporting of impaired drivers is reviewed. The American Medical Association's position is detailed. Finally, the Bioethics Committee of the Medical Society of the State of New York proposes elements for an ethically defensible public response to this problem.  (+info)

Advocacy and community: the social roles of physicians in the last 1000 years. Part III. (5/61)

The 19th and 20th centuries were to witness dramatic developments in Western medicine. The Industrial Revolution was to transform the means by which societies generated wealth. Populations grew exponentially throughout Europe and America as epidemics receded into the pages of history, and clinical medicine -- grandchild of the Enlightenment project -- was beginning to produce long-promised therapeutic benefits for individual patients. As these factors merged, healthcare would be transformed simultaneously into a commodity -- to be bought and sold on the market -- as well as a public good, and even a right, expected by citizens from their governments. Physicians would be called upon to mediate this tension, which would come to define the context of medical practice through the end of the 20th century.  (+info)

Are patients' office visits with physicians getting shorter? (6/61)

BACKGROUND: Many believe that managed care creates pressure on physicians to increase productivity, see more patients, and spend less time with each patient. METHODS: We used nationally representative data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) of the National Center for Health Statistics and the American Medical Association's Socioeconomic Monitoring System (SMS) to examine the length of office visits with physicians from 1989 through 1998. We assessed the trends for visits covered by a managed-care or other prepaid health plan (prepaid visits) and non-prepaid visits for primary and specialty care, for new and established patients, and for common and serious diagnoses. RESULTS: Between 1989 and 1998 the number of visits to physicians' offices increased significantly from 677 million to 797 million, although the rate of visits per 100 population did not change significantly. The average duration of office visits in 1989 was 16.3 minutes according to the NAMCS and 20.4 minutes according to the SMS survey. According to both sets of data, the average duration of visits increased by between one and two minutes between 1989 and 1998. The duration of the visits increased for both prepaid and nonprepaid visits. Nonprepaid visits were consistently longer than prepaid visits, although the gap declined from 1 minute in 1989 to 0.6 minute in 1998. There was an upward trend in the length of visits for both primary and specialty care and for both new and established patients. The average length of visits remained stable or increased for patients with the most common diagnoses and for those with the most serious diagnoses. CONCLUSIONS: Contrary to expectations, the growth of managed health care has not been associated with a reduction in the length of office visits. The observed trends cannot be explained by increases in physicians' availability, shifts in the distribution of physicians according to sex, or changes in the complexity of the case mix.  (+info)

Accrediting organizations and quality improvement. (7/61)

This paper reviews the various organizations in the United States that perform accreditation and establish standards for healthcare delivery. These agencies include the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the American Medical Accreditation Program (AMAP), the American Accreditation HealthCare Commission/Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (AAHC/URAC), and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory HealthCare (AAAHC). In addition, the Foundation for Accountability (FACCT) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) play important roles in ensuring the quality of healthcare. Each of the accrediting bodies is unique in terms of their mission, activities, compositions of their boards, and organizational histories, and each develops their own accreditation process and programs and sets their own accreditation standards. For this reason, certain accrediting organizations are better suited than others to perform accreditation for a specific area in the healthcare delivery system. The trend toward outcomes research is noted as a clear shift from the structural and process measures historically used by accrediting agencies. Accreditation has been generally viewed as a desirable process to establish standards and work toward achieving higher quality care, but it is not without limitations. Whether accrediting organizations are truly ensuring high quality healthcare across the United States is a question that remains to be answered.  (+info)

Views of United States physicians and members of the American Medical Association House of Delegates on physician-assisted suicide. (8/61)

OBJECTIVE: To ascertain the views of physicians and physician leaders toward the legalization of physician-assisted suicide. DESIGN: Confidential mail questionnaire. PARTICIPANTS: A nationwide random sample of physicians of all ages and specialties, and all members of the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates as of April 1996. MEASUREMENTS: Demographic and practice characteristics and attitude toward legalization of physician-assisted suicide. MAIN RESULTS: Usable questionnaires were returned by 658 of 930 eligible physicians in the nationwide random sample (71%) and 315 of 390 eligible physicians in the House of Delegates (81%). In the nationwide random sample, 44.5% favored legalization (16.4% definitely and 28.1% probably), 33.9% opposed legalization (20.4% definitely and 13.5% probably), and 22% were unsure. Opposition to legalization was strongly associated with self-defined politically conservative beliefs, religious affiliation, and the importance of religion to the respondent (P <.001). Among members of the AMA House of Delegates, 23.5% favored legalization (7.3% definitely and 16.2% probably), 61.6% opposed legalization (43.5% definitely and 18.1% probably), and 15% were unsure; their views differed significantly from those of the nationwide random sample (P <.001). Given the choice, a majority of both groups would prefer no law at all, with physician-assisted suicide being neither legal nor illegal. CONCLUSIONS: Members of the AMA House of Delegates strongly oppose physician-assisted suicide, but rank-and-file physicians show no consensus either for or against its legalization. Although the debate is sometimes adversarial, most physicians in the United States are uncertain or endorse moderate views on assisted suicide.  (+info)

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 30, 2017 (HealthDay News) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved the first gene therapy - Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel) - in the United States, to treat certain pediatric and young adult patients with a form of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).. Each dose of Kymriah is created using the persons own T-cells. These cells are lab-modified and then reinfused into the patient to target leukemia cells with the CD19 antigen on the surface, the FDA explained. Kymriah is intended for the treatment of patients up to 25 years of age with B-cell precursor ALL that is refractory or in second or later relapse, the FDA said.. The therapy was evaluated in clinical testing involving 63 children and young adults with relapsed or refractory B-cell ALL. Some 83 percent of those given the therapy were in remission within three months of treatment, the agency said.. Potential side effects of Kymriah include cytokine release syndrome. Other possible severe side effects could ...

By: Norman McPhail. The American Medical Association (AMA) has taken a giant step recently, in which they now recognize obesity as a disease. The AMAs change of heart will help expand health coverage and get more help for overweight people. "The American Medical Associations recognition that obesity is a disease carries a lot of clout," says Samuel Klein, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at Washington University School of Medicine, in St. Louis. "Their opinion can influence policy makers who are in a position to do more to support interventions and research to prevent and treat obesity.". In the United States today, obesity has risen to alarming numbers. We are seeing 35% of adults as being overweight and 17% of children. In 1962, obesity was at a rock bottom of 13%. Obesity has gotten out of control and something needs to be done. The cause has been blamed on fast food, sodas, school lunch programs, you name it. Bottom line is, we all need to take control of our lives. Im not ...

Its a fact. And -- and the truth is, most people know that its a fact. And yet, as clear as it is that our system badly needs reform, reforms not inevitable. Theres a sense out there among some -- and perhaps some members who are gathered here today of the AMA -- that, as bad as our current system may be -- and its pretty bad -- the devil we know is better than the devil we dont. Theres a fear of change, a worry that we may lose what works about our health care system while trying to fix what doesnt. Im here to tell you, I understand that fear, and I understand the cynicism. Theyre scars left over from past efforts at reform. After all, presidents have called for health care reform for nearly a century. Teddy Roosevelt called for it; Harry Truman called for it; Richard Nixon called for it; Jimmy Carter called for it; Bill Clinton called for it ...

This award means so much to Dr. Burt and to all of us at Volunteers in Medicine, too," said Dottie Dorion, co-founder of the free downtown clinic. "Dr. Burt and I met Dr. Jack McConnell, Volunteers in Medicines national founder in 2002 when our clinic was just a dream. That Jim is receiving this amazing honor, 15 years later, makes us indescribably proud.". In light of the uncertainty surrounding future access to healthcare and its skyrocketing related costs, the Volunteers in Medicine model is increasingly relevant. It brings retired and active medical professionals together in a volunteer capacity to provide treatment to the often overlooked populations- the working uninsured. This innovative volunteer service approach makes it possible for them to deliver more than $5 in services for each dollar it receives. The Volunteers in Medicine model for free family medical care is hugely successful in reducing emergency room visits and acute care urgencies for this vulnerable population, keeping ...

McKnights reports about a study in The Journal of the American Medical Association documents how post-acute providers are successfully reducing hospital readmissions by communicating and collaborating more closely with hospitals and other healthcare providers. The research, funded by CMS, studied 14 communities where hospitals collaborated with post-acute providers to improve care transitions, with a 5.7% drop in readmissions withing 30 days. It also noted benefits from nursing homes applying the Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers (INTERACT) model. This coincides with another study by Columbia University Medical Center (also published in The Journal of the American Medical Association) that long-term...

Women with other risk factors, such as smoking, high cholesterol levels and obesity, greatly benefited. According to the authors of this study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, these results should encourage women who have no leisure-time physical activity, as the benefits are great and the effort is minimal. It was the amount of time spent walking, not the pace, that counted, the study found; women who strolled benefited as much as those who walked more rigorously. A brisk walk is more effective, but any kind of walking appears to be beneficial. So keep that body in shape! Youll look better, youll feel better, and youll be protecting your heart against disease. Ask your doctor of chiropractic for more information. Reference:. Lee IM, Rexrode KM, Cook NR, et al. Physical activity and coronary heart disease in women.

Chantrix (almost $1 billion). Yes, drugs are big business, and advertising helps.. Big Pharma - Drug Pushers?. One of the biggest problems with this direct-to-consumer advertising is that it helps drive demand and costs upward by convincing more patients to "talk to their doctor," thus presumably encouraging a doctor who is not currently prescribing the drug to start doing so. The real purpose of such advertising is not so much to inform the public as it is to drive choice, "typically in the direction of expensive brand-name drugs.". Until all of this advertising started, who knew that high cholesterol was such a rampant medical condition in the U.S.? Who knew that so many middle-aged men were suffering from erectile dysfunction, and so many women suffering from active bladder syndrome? Now we have new drugs for "restless leg syndrome," a condition many doctors believe is mostly over-diagnosed, driven by the media blitz (See: "How the Media Helps Make People Sick").. All of these advertising ...

BACKGROUND: Personal digital assistants (PDAs) are being increasingly used in medical practice. Although they have been touted as having the ability to improve efficiency and safety, little is known about pediatricians use of and attitudes about PDAs. OBJECTIVE: Our goals were to 1) determine the percentage of pediatricians using PDAs and computers, 2) determine perceived strengths and weaknesses of PDAs, and 3) explore characteristics associated with beliefs and use. DESIGN/METHODS: Pediatricians (2130) were selected randomly from the American Medical Association Physician Masterfile of US-licensed physicians. All participants were mailed a survey along with a prepaid return envelope and a 1 dollar incentive. Up to 3 mailings were sent per participant. RESULTS: Of eligible participants, 63.2% returned a survey. There were no significant differences between respondents and nonrespondents with respect to sex, type of practice, and present employment. Thirty-five percent of respondents currently ...
Several diverse health care stakeholders are interested in and are developing standardized quality measures. The Congressionally mandated National Healthcare Disparities Report2 and National Healthcare Quality Report3 included a broad set of performance and outcome indicators to monitor the nations progress toward improved health care quality. Recent calls for measures by national organizations have yielded hundreds of submissions, which is proof of the tremendous activity in this area.. There are many organizations actively involved in the development and promulgation of quality measures. The American Medical Association Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI) includes representatives from more than 140 US medical specialty and state medical societies, federal agencies, and other organizations convened to identify and develop evidence-based clinical quality measures that enhance quality of patient care and foster accountability. The AAP is a member of the PCPI and has developed ...
AMA-Assn.org The American Medical Association (AMA) adopted policy during its Annual meeting today aimed at better understanding the incidence of depression and suicide among physicians and physicians-in-training. With reports showing a lack of systematic reporting and inconsistencies in available data, the new policy offers recommendations on studying and collecting data that better reflect the actual incidence of and risk factors for physician, medical student, and resident suicide in the U.S. Specifically, the policy calls for the AMA to explore the viability and cost-effectiveness of regularly collecting National Death Index (NDI) data, as well as confidentially maintaining the manner of death information, for physicians, residents, and medical students listed as deceased in the AMA Physician Masterfile for long-term studies. Accordingly, the AMA plans to partner with a leading academic medical institution to conduct a pilot study using NDI to initially identify the manner of death for a subset of

AMA: June 18, 2013. Obesity should be called a disease and not simply a condition, the American Medical Associations policy-making House of Delegates voted on Tuesday.. The vote - approved by roughly 60% of the AMAs full House - goes against the recommendation of its Council on Science and Public Health, which issued a report earlier this week saying that calling obesity a disease would be problematic.. The resolution was backed by delegates from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.. "We felt its time to take a stance and say were going to identify this as a disease," AMA committee on public health member Douglas Martin, MD, told MedPage Today. "We think thats going to send a message not only to the public but to the physician community that we really need to make it a priority and put it in our cross hairs.". The council report struggled with ...

The 2008 Health Tracking Physician Survey (HTPS) is the successor to the Community Tracking Study (CTS) Physician Surveys which were conducted in 1996-1997 (ICPSR 2597), 1998-1999 (ICPSR 3267), 2000-2001 (ICPSR 3820), and 2004-2005 (ICPSR 4584). Unlike the previous surveys, HTPS does not have the community focus intrinsic to CTS. Whereas the CTS design focused on 60 nationally representative communities with sample sizes large enough to draw conclusions about health system change in 12 communities, the HTPS design is a national sample not aimed at measuring change within communities. Hence, Community was dropped from the study title. Administered to a nationally representative sample of United States physicians providing direct patient care, HTPS collected information on physician characteristics and specialty distribution; career satisfaction; practice arrangements and ownership; financial interest in medical equipment and hospitals; and physician time allocation, including hours worked, ...

A History of Censorship. I was struck that particular morning when I heard on the radio from Paul Harvey (and later CNN) that on January 15th, the editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), George D. Lundberg, M.D., had been fired by the AMA for using JAMA for his own political purposes. The chickens had come home to roost, I thought. When in March 1994, we published a series of articles debunking many of the fallacies that have been published in the medical literature regarding public health and gun control (including JAMA and The New England Journal of Medicine) and thoroughly documenting the beneficial aspects of gun ownership in the hands of law abiding citizens,(1) without having even read the articles, Dr. Lundberg commented: "The Georgia articles are contrary to virtually all recognized, publicly published research regarding firearms in our society. My belief is a careful analysis of their [data] and methods will show it to be flawed."(2) So much for objectivity, ...

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco reveal in the January 20, 2010 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) (http://jama.ama-assn.org/) that heart disease patients who have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids experience a lower rate of reduction in telomere length over time.

A new study from The Journal of the American Medical Association finds a slight increase in the number of pregnant women it surveyed who used marijuana to relieve nausea or pregnancy-related anxiety.. The survey used data between 2009 and 2016 from about 300,000 pregnant women in California through a large health care system in the state. Marijuana usage was determined from urine toxicology tests and self reporting.. The results show that pot use rose from 4.2% to 7.1% during the period of study. In addition, the rate of marijuana usage was more pronounced among younger pregnant women. For those younger than 18, it went up from 12.5% to 21.8%. For those between the ages of 18 and 24, pot usage went up close to 10%, from 9.8% to 19%.. Guest host Alex Cohen discusses the findings with study author Kelly Young-Wolff, and Dr. Allison Bond and Dr. Leena Nathan.. ...

As a result, Murtagh and Ludwig argue, state intervention may serve the best interests of many children with life-threatening obesity, comprising the only realistic way to control harmful behaviors. (The American Medical Association press office was quick to note in an email to reporters that the commentary does not reflect the position of the AMA or JAMA.). The emotional devastation of separating a family, the authors say, could be ameliorated by the prospect of return if the parents presumably get their act together. And the emotional pain may be less severe than the physical pain and risk of gastric bypass surgery-a serious procedure for adults, let alone kids.. Defining childhood obesity as abuse would place a tremendous burden on parents-and an unfair one. Considering the marketing and low cost of sweetened cereals, high-fat fast-food meals and other treats aimed squarely at kids, others also bear responsibility for our childhood obesity epidemic. Even the U.S. government could be blamed, ...

Just as Chiropractics effectiveness has been studied so has its safety. Chiropractics approach is drug-free and non-surgical, therefore eliminating two of the largest risk factors in the health care field. Reports of danger are grossly exaggerated. Much misinformation and misunderstanding of the safety issue has been propagated by the (AMA) American Medical Association.. In the early 1960s, the AMA decided to try to contain and eliminate Chiropractic as a profession. The AMAs purpose was to prevent medical physicians from referring patients to Chiropractors and accepting referrals of patients from Chiropractors; to prevent Chiropractors from obtaining access to hospital diagnostic services; to prevent medical physicians from teaching at chiropractic colleges or engaging in any joint research; and to prevent any cooperation between the two groups. The AMA unfairly told its membership, medical students, insurance companies and the general public that Chiropractic was an unscientific cult. Once ...

Chiropractic looks as if a materialistic Variation of Chinese acupuncture utilized to unblock chi, or therapeutic touch to channel prana.

For several years chiropractors rarely labored with medical Physicians and they were being Practically under no circumstances on personnel at hospitals.

Experts now agree that breast implants can cause a type of cancer of the immune system. The FDA finally admitted this risk of cancer in 2017, but other experts - including plastic surgeons - were aware of the risk years before. Why did it take so long for FDA, the media, and women with implants to find out that choosing breast implants could increase their chances of developing a potentially fatal disease?. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare type of cancer of the immune system that usually develops in the lymph nodes, skin, lungs, or liver. However, ALCL sometimes develops in the breast area of women with breast implants.. In 2008 Dutch researchers published a report of 11 women with breast implants and ALCL, and concluded that the implants seemed to be associated with ALCL.[3] Although published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), this information was not widely reported.. The link between ALCL and breast implants was first reported by the U.S. Food and Drug ...
A separate piece of legislation, Senate Bill (SB) 1776, known as the "Doctor Fix," was introduced October 21, 2009 in exchange for American Medical Association (AMA) support of the Act. While eliminating the sustainable growth rate formula, this legislation would have frozen physician payments for 10 years. Although not indexed to inflation, physicians were willing to trade a decade of certain Medicare reimbursement for the recurring crises caused by Congressional inaction about the sustainable growth rate issue. However, SB 1776 failed to pass because it was purportedly not compliant with the "pay-as-you-go" Congressional provisions.. Enacting a series of temporary patches to the problem, Congress has continued its wrangling over the issue, leading to three delays in Medicare reimbursement in 2010, for more than a month of delayed physician reimbursement without interest (see sidebar)..

WASHINGTON, DC -(ENEWSPF)-March 31, 2016. Yesterday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new label for Mifeprex (mifepristone), one of the medicines used in a medication abortion. The new label updates the protocol for medication abortion so it reflects the most common evidence-based protocols recommended by Planned Parenthood, the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Family Planning. The FDAs approval of the new label is based on substantial evidence demonstrating that medication abortion is safe for virtually all women.. "First and foremost, this is another affirmation from the FDA that medication abortion is a safe and effective option to end an early pregnancy. Studies show medication abortion has a 99 percent safety record, and that medication abortion is up to 98 percent effective in ending an early pregnancy," said Raegan McDonald-Mosley, Chief Medical Officer of Planned ...
