Nurses and nursing in primary medical care in England. (1/9663)

In 1974 we sent questionnaires on attachment and employment of nurses to 9214 general practices in England. There were 7863 replies (85%), of which 551 were excluded from the study. A total of 2654 nurses were directly employed by 24% (1774) of the practices, and 68% (4972) had attached nurses. Practices in health centres were larger and had greater nursing resources than those in other premises. We suggest that practices may employ nurses to compensate for ineffective nursing attachments, and we conclude that general-practice-employed nurses are becoming "professionalised".  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of effect of feedback on general practitioners' prescribing in Australia. (2/9663)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect on general practitioners' prescribing of feedback on their levels of prescribing. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: General practice in rural Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 2440 full time recognised general practitioners practising in non-urban areas. INTERVENTION: Two sets of graphical displays (6 months apart) of their prescribing rates for 2 years, relative to those of their peers, were posted to participants. Data were provided for five main drug groups and were accompanied by educational newsletters. The control group received no information on their prescribing. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prescribing rates in the intervention and control groups for the five main drug groups, total prescribing and potential substitute prescribing and ordering before and after the interventions. RESULTS: The intervention and control groups had similar baseline characteristics (age, sex, patient mix, practices). Median prescribing rates for the two groups were almost identical before and after the interventions. Any changes in prescribing observed in the intervention group were also seen in the control group. There was no evidence that feedback reduced the variability in prescribing nor did it differentially affect the very high or very low prescribers. CONCLUSIONS: The form of feedback evaluated here-mailed, unsolicited, centralised, government sponsored, and based on aggregate data-had no impact on the prescribing levels of general practitioners.  (+info)

Computer use by general practitioners in Scotland. (3/9663)

BACKGROUND: Despite the widespread adoption by general practitioners (GPs) of desktop computers, there has been very little evaluation of the way in which the computer is actually used during consultations and the way in which it affects patient satisfaction. AIM: To ascertain the extent to which the computer is used in the consultation and to investigate the possible relationship between computer use and patient satisfaction. METHOD: Six GPs completed a short questionnaire about the extent to which they use the computer during surgeries. Eighty-four consultations from the surgeries of these GPs were video recorded. Patient satisfaction data on these 84 patients were collected at the time of the surgery using the previously validated Consultation Satisfaction Questionnaire. RESULTS: All six GPs stated that they usually used the computer during consultations. However, video observation revealed that the computer was used in just 51% of surgeries. The proportion of time that the computer was used for varied from 0.03 to 0.4, with a mean value of 0.12. The commonest function for which the computer was used was prescribing. The consultations in which the computer was used (CU) were on average 148 seconds longer than the non-computerized consultations (NCU). There was no difference in patient satisfaction between the two groups. CONCLUSION: Despite this group of GPs having a self-declared interest in the use of computers, the extent to which the computer was used was much lower than expected from the GPs' self-reported use. This may be partly explained by the fact that using the computer takes up valuable time within the consultation and does not appear to contribute to patient satisfaction. If desktop computers are to be used to their full potential in general practice, more work is required to evaluate their impact on the consultation process itself.  (+info)

Relationship between practice counselling and referral to outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology. (4/9663)

BACKGROUND: Although reduction in the use of secondary care mental health services is a suggested benefit of counselling in general practice, there has been little empirical investigation of this relationship. AIM: To investigate the relationship between the provision of counselling in general practice and the use of outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology services across a geographical area. METHOD: Information on referrals to outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology from all general practices in the London Borough of Islington over one year (October 1993 to September 1994) was collected from the routine information systems of the main hospital departments serving this area. Referral rates per 1000 practice population were compared for practices with and without a practice-based counsellor. RESULTS: Fifteen (35%) of the 43 practices had a counsellor based in the practice. The median referral rate to clinical psychology was higher in practices with a counsellor (4.1 per 1000) than in practices without a counsellor (0.8 per 1000). There was no relationship between the provision of practice counselling and median referral rates to outpatient psychiatry (1.8 per 1000 with a counsellor, 1.7 per 1000 without a counsellor). CONCLUSION: Provision of practice counselling in the study was associated with higher referral rates to clinical psychology and no difference in referral rates to outpatient psychiatry. This is in contrast to the hypothesis that counselling reduces the use of secondary care mental health services.  (+info)

Why do dyspeptic patients over the age of 50 consult their general practitioner? A qualitative investigation of health beliefs relating to dyspepsia. (5/9663)

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of late-diagnosed gastric cancer is poor, yet less than half of dyspeptic patients consult their general practitioner (GP). AIM: To construct an explanatory model of the decision to consult with dyspepsia in older patients. METHOD: A total of 75 patients over the age of 50 years who had consulted with dyspepsia at one of two inner city general practices were invited to an in-depth interview. The interviews were taped, transcribed, and analysed using the computer software NUD.IST, according to the principles of grounded theory. RESULTS: Altogether, 31 interviews were conducted. The perceived threat of cancer and the need for reassurance were key influences on the decision to consult. Cues such as a change in symptoms were important in prompting a re-evaluation of the likely cause. Personal vulnerability to serious illness was often mentioned in the context of family or friends' experience, but tempered by an individual's life expectations. CONCLUSION: Most patients who had delayed consultation put their symptoms down to 'old age' or 'spicy food'.

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and premature death. Physicians should play an active role in the control of smoking by encouraging cessation and helping the smoker to choose the most suitable aid to cessation. AIM: To evaluate a simple, ear acupuncture treatment for the cessation of smoking. METHOD: Randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 78 currently smoking volunteers from the general public. Volunteers attended an acupuncture clinic in a general practice setting and were given a single treatment of electroacupuncture using two needles at either an active or a placebo site plus self-retained ear seeds for two weeks. The major outcome measure was biochemically validated total cessation of smoking at six months. RESULTS: A total of 12.5% of the active treatment group compared with 0% of the placebo group ceased smoking at six months (P = 0.055, 95% confidence interval -0.033 to 0.323). CONCLUSION: This simple ear electroacupuncture treatment was significantly more effective in helping volunteers to quit smoking than placebo treatment.  (+info)

Out-of-hours service in Denmark: the effect of a structural change. (7/9663)

BACKGROUND: In Denmark, the provision of out-of-hours care by general practitioners (GPs) was reformed at the start of 1992. Rota systems were replaced locally by county-based services. The new out-of-hours service resulted in a considerable reduction in the total number of GPs on call. AIM: To describe how the patients experienced the change from a satisfaction point of view, and how the pattern of patient contact and the fee for GPs changed with the new system. METHOD: The county of Funen was chosen as the geographical area where data were collected. A questionnaire measuring patient satisfaction was posted before the change, immediately after the change, and three years later to a random selection of patients who had been in contact with the out-of-hours service within two weeks before the mailing date. All primary care services for the Danish population are stored in a database (National Health Service Registry). From this continuously updated database, the contact pattern and the fee for GPs were extracted for 1991, 1992, and 1995. RESULTS: The total number of patient contacts was reduced by 16% in the first year, but by only 6% three years later. Three years after the change, there were more than twice as many telephone consultations as before the change, and there were only a third as many home visits. After three years, the GPs' fees were reduced by 20%. There was a significant decrease in patient satisfaction, although the overall level remained high. This decrease was lower three years after the change than immediately after the new system was introduced. CONCLUSION: The new service had a major cost-effectiveness benefit, but there was a price to pay in patient satisfaction.  (+info)

Health at work in the general practice. (8/9663)

BACKGROUND: Poor mental health and high stress levels have been reported in staff working in general practice. Little is known about how practices are tackling these and other issues of health at work in the absence of an established occupational healthcare service. AIM: To establish the extent of knowledge and good practice of health at work policies for staff working in general practice. METHOD: Practice managers in 450 randomly selected general practices in England were interviewed by telephone, and the general practitioner (GP) with lead responsibility for workplace health in the same practice was surveyed by postal questionnaire. We surveyed the existence and implementation of practice policies, causes and effects of stress on practice staff, and agreement between practice managers and GPs on these issues. RESULTS: Seventy-one per cent of GPs and 76% of practice managers responded, with at least one reply from 408 (91%) practices and responses from both the practice manager and GPs from 252 (56%) practices. Seventy-nine per cent of practices had a policy on monitoring risks and hazards. The proportion of practices with other workplace health policies ranged from 21% (policy to minimize stress) to 91% (policy on staff smoking). There was a tendency for practices to have policies but not to implement them. The three causes of stress for practice staff most commonly cites by both GP and practice manager responders were 'patient demands', 'too much work', and 'patient abuse/aggression'. Sixty-five per cent of GPs felt that stress had caused mistakes in their practices. Although there was general agreement between the two groups, there was a considerable lack of agreement between responders working in the same practices. CONCLUSIONS: The study revealed substantial neglect of workplace health issues with many practices falling foul of health and safety legislation. This report should help general practices identify issues to tackle to improve their workplace health, and the Health at Work in the NHS project to focus on areas where their targeted help will be most worthwhile.  (+info)

OBJECTIVES--To examine general practitioner consultations by demographic and socioeconomic variables and to derive a method of measuring the impact of relative deprivation on general practitioner workload. DESIGN--The study was based on general practitioner consultations reported in the general household surveys of 1983-7, covering a sample of 129,987 individuals in Great Britain. Odds ratios for general practitioner consultations were obtained for selected variables among children (0-15 years), men (16-64), women (16-64), and elderly people (greater than or equal to 65). These were then used to derive deprivation indices specific to electoral wards for use in general practice. SETTING--Great Britain, with particular findings illustrated by English electoral wards and the conurbations of London, Manchester, Merseyside, and the West Midlands. RESULTS--Council tenure increased the likelihood of consultation significantly in all four groups. Odds ratios were raised in children, men, and women with ...

Our team has been studying general practice activity for over 16 years through the Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health (BEACH) program. This cross-sectional encounter-based study uses changing random samples of about 1,000 GPs per year, each of whom contribute details of 100 encounters with consenting patients. This provides a representative sample of about 100,000 encounters per year from across the country.. Results from one of the BEACH books, released today, shed some light on what we got for the $2.1 billion of extra Medicare spending on general practice. In 2013-14 there were 35 million more GP services than ten years earlier, a 36% increase. This included 17 million more attendances by patients aged 65 years and over (a 67% increase).. Length of GP consultations recorded through BEACH suggest that the average consultation now takes almost one minute more than a decade ago. The result is that GPs spend an extra ten million clinical hours with their patients, a 43% increase.. The ...
Objectives: To identify factors that influence the extent to which general practitioners use absolute risk (AR) assessment in cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment. Design, setting and participants: Semi-structured interviews with 25 currently practising GPs from eight Divisions of General Practice in New South Wales, Australia, between October 2011 and May 2012. Data were analysed using framework analysis. Results: The study identified five strategies that GPs use with patients in different situations, defined in terms of the extent to which AR was used and the reasons given for this: the AR-focused strategy, used when AR assessment was considered useful for the patient; the AR-adjusted strategy, used to account for additional risk factors such as family history; the clinical judgement strategy, used when GPs considered that their judgement took multiple risk factors into account as effectively as AR; the passive disregard strategy, used when GPs lacked sufficient time, access or experience to
Advance care planning (ACP) can offer benefits to patients and their families, especially when delivered in outpatient settings, but uptake remains low. Common barriers for health professionals include a perceived lack of time and adequate training, experience, and confidence in conducting ACP. Patient-reported barriers include a lack of awareness of ACP or discomfort initiating or engaging in discussions about end-of-life. We aimed to explore patients perspectives of an ACP intervention designed to address common barriers to uptake in the general practice setting. We provided training and support to doctors and general practice nurses (GPNs) to initiate and lead ACP discussions at their respective practices (2014 to 2015). Following the intervention, we conducted interviews with patients to explore their experience of engaging in ACP in the general practice setting. Thematic analysis was used to inductively code transcripts and identify key themes from semi-structured interviews with patients. Six
INTRODUCTION: Nutrition is a key priority for the management of lifestyle-related chronic disease, and the demand on general practitioners (GPs) to provide nutrition care is increasing. AIM: The aim of this systematic review was to investigate the effectiveness of nutrition care provided by GPs in improving the nutrition-related behaviour and subsequent health outcomes of individuals with lifestyle-related chronic disease. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted using the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE and ISI Web of Knowledge databases. Randomised controlled trials that investigated a nutrition care intervention feasible within general practice consultations, and that utilised outcome measures relevant to nutritionrelated behaviour or indicators of health, were included in the review. RESULTS: Of the 131 articles screened for inclusion, nine studies, totalling 9564 participants, were included in the review. Five interventions observed improvements in the nutrition behaviour of ...

Each year 700 000 Australians experience depression. 1 Most patients who seek professional help for depression visit a general practitioner, with more Australians receiving clinical care from a GP than all other health professionals combined. 2 It is estimated that GPs in Australia deliver more than 3 500 000 services for depression each year. 3 General practice consultations for psychological problems have been reported to take longer than consultations that address nonpsychological issues. 4,5 Many GPs report concern that time is a limiting factor in their capacity to address psychological issues, including depression. 4,6 A range of solutions to address this difficulty, including opting to adjust consultation duration to respond to psychological needs by running over time have been reported. 7 | RACGP
As the IRS modernizes its policies, practices and systems, SCACPA believes tax professionals should have as many tools as possible in one place to aid taxpayers in successfully adhering to the updated tax code.. Thats why at the conclusion of Mays AICPAs Spring Meeting of Council, SCACPA representatives were among the several hundred CPAs from across the country who met with members of Congress and their staffs to ask for their support of consolidating existing IRS units into a Practitioner Services Division.. The IRSs Division would act as a liaison for professional practitioners and the IRSs operating divisions. It could provide telephone assistance to preparers representing clients with complex tax problems.. These efforts to get taxpayer issues more efficiently resolved are proving effective. IRS Commissioner Rettig announced this month he is considering the creation of a Practitioner Services Division.. Im aware of it. Im sensitive to it. And I understand the need for it, Rettig ...
AIM: To determine the impact and cost-effectiveness of telephone versus written access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and of different strategies for disseminating locally produced guidelines, upon requests by general practitioners (GPs) for knee and lumbar spine investigation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two sequential pragmatic open cluster-randomized trials were conducted within 39 general practices. The outcome measure in each trial was concordance of request with local guidelines. Trial 1: practices requested MRI by telephone or in writing. Trial 2: all practices received guidelines, plus either: a practice-based seminar, practice-specific audit feedback, both seminar and feedback, or neither. RESULTS: A total of 414 requests were assessed in the two trials. Trial 1: telephone access cost £4.86 more per request but rates of concordant requests were equivalent (65%/64%: telephone/written). Trial 2: compared to the control group, costs per practice were £1911 higher in seminar group, £1543 ...
It seems unlikely that patients with more severe asthma would choose to register with general practices with smaller partnerships, or that patients from these practices are more likely to request admission. Absence of support from partners and practice nurses, or less flexibility in working patterns, may make doctors from singlehanded and two partner practices more cautious in managing exacerbations of asthma with lower thresholds for referral. Indeed, singlehanded doctors themselves cite professional isolation and difficulties in providing 24 hour cover as the major disincentives to singlehanded practice.29 Qualitative work such as a critical incident study of patients admitted to hospital with asthma and their general practitioners might clarify the association of higher admission rates with singlehanded practice.. While singlehanded practices can develop excellent systems for identifying, reviewing, and educating asthma patients,30 management of chronic disease in smaller partnerships in east ...

Background: General practitioners (GPs) conduct the majority of STI/HIV (sexually transmitted infections/human immunodeficiency virus) testing in men. Given the overall low prevalence of STI in general practice, GPs undertake targeted risk assessment and testing of their patients. Little, however, is known about the extent of STI and HIV risk assessment in general practice, the consistency of questioning or the extent to which GPs identify patients with risk behaviours. Aim: To explore STI and HIV testing strategies for men by general practitioners (family medicine doctors). Methodology: This study employs a cross-sectional survey of GP testing patterns adjoining a qualitative, multiple-case study, drawing on semi-structured interviews with seventeen GPs from the Wellington region. The testing behaviour of two cohorts of GPs is studied - those who frequently test for STI/HIV and those who infrequently test - stratified by practice size, the location and GP gender. Results: This study provides ...
This study aimed to include those disorders that influence the clinical management of patients and used clinician chart review to do so. By means of a practice-based analysis of individual patient records it was able to assess which combinations would be most relevant for the development of guidelines useful at practice level in primary care. Hypertension-osteoarthritis was identified as a most prevalent combination of diseases (24,3% of the study sample) but the association was not significant. The significant associations described in Table 3 generally show very low prevalence. In general this study indicates that the usefulness of RCTs on disease combinations will be hampered by low prevalence at practice level, low association strengths and the fact that many patients present with more than 2 problems (64.2% of the study sample has a CIRS score , 2).. The combination hypertension-osteoarthritis has been described previously as the most prevalent combination in older persons [14]. Building ...

Methods: Primary care patient data were retrospectively extracted from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) database. The sample comprised 201,179 adults aged 30 years or older experiencing a MAARI episode. Patient exposure to statins or fibrates was coded as separate dichotomous variables and deemed current if the most recent GP prescription was issued in the 30 days prior to MAARI diagnosis. Multivariable logistic regression and Cox regression were used for analyses. Adjustment was carried out for chronic lung disease, heart failure, metformin and glitazones, comorbidity burden, socio-demographic and lifestyle variables such as smoking status and body mass index (BMI). Statistical interaction tests were carried out to check for effect modification by gender, body mass index, smoking status and comorbidity ...

BACKGROUND: In recent years there have been difficulties with recruitment in the United Kingdom (UK) to principalships in general practice. AIM: To compare recruitment trends in cohorts defined by year of qualification and to report attitudes of young doctors about the attractiveness of a career in general practice. DESIGN OF STUDY: Cohort studies. SETTING: UK medical qualifiers in the years 1974, 1977, 1983, 1988, 1993, and 1996. METHOD: Postal questionnaire surveys conductedfrom 1975 to 1999. RESULTS: Five years after qualification, 23.8% of 1993 qualifiers were in UK general practice, compared with 25.9% and 32.8% of 1988 and 1983 qualifiers respectively. Six per cent of responders in the 1993 cohort were general practitioner (GP) principals, compared with 10% of the 1988 cohort and 20% of the 1983 cohort. Ten years after qualification, 37.7% of 1988 qualifiers and 42.7% of 1983 qualifiers were in UK general practice. Older GPs had lower job satisfaction than their contemporaries in hospital practice

After an initial period of decline, spending on general practice has increased by nearly 12% since 2010. Challenges remain: the Government is struggling with GP numbers, and demand pressures are rising as long-term conditions become more prevalent. New ways of working are emerging to face these challenges but there are signs that more patients are facing difficulties accessing general practice. Spending in general practice has increased by nearly 12% in real terms since 2009.

Doctors, particularly general practitioners, play a significant role in assisting patients to create advance care plans. When medically indicated, these documents are important tools to promote congruence between end-of-life care and patients personal preferences. Despite this, little is known regarding the availability of these documents in hospitals. The aim of this study was to identify the proportion of people who died in hospital without an advance care plan and how many of these had advance care planning (ACP) documents in their general practice records. A retrospective cohort study was conducted of patient hospital records with manual linkage to general practice records. The large regional hospital in Victoria, Australia has a catchment population in excess of 300,000 people. The study sample was patients aged 75 years and over who died in the hospital between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2017. The hospital records of these patients were examined to identify those which did not have a system

Vaccine Benefits. Once your immune system is trained to resist a disease, you are said to be immune to it. Before vaccines, the only way to become immune to a disease was to actually get it and, with luck, survive it. This is called naturally acquired immunity. With naturally acquired immunity, you suffer the symptoms of the disease and also risk the complications, which can be quite serious or even deadly. In addition, during certain stages of the illness, you may be contagious and pass the disease to family members, friends, or others who come into contact with you.. Child Immunization Schedule. Adult Immunization Schedule. Vaccines, which provide artificially acquired immunity, are an easier and less risky way to become immune. Vaccines can prevent a disease from occurring in the first place, rather than attempt to cure it after the fact.. ...

Society needs more specialists in medicine because they can cure progressive diseases; for instance, when people suffer from cold they will see a general practitioner, but when they feel pain in heart, lung or muscles they refer to a specialist, so generalists can cure a limited area of diseases which are in first stages. On the other hand, general practitioners can learn and memorize a limited subjects; that is, they know a little about skin, skeletal, lung, and heart diseases. Moreover, when people get sick, they prefer to go to a specialist rather than to go to a generalist ...

When I left my full-time, community-based family medicine practice just over 5 years ago, because I was nearing burnout and realized if we ever wanted to have a child Id have to make changes (kind of hard to get pregnant when youre home late and exhausted every night, and when youre 35 already you get stressed that there isnt much time left), my patients had a variety of responses (probably similar to the article and comments, which I was afraid to read). Probably most patients were supportive, but some were adamantly negative with comments like how dare you do this to me? this is so inconvenient for me. I heard from a colleague that when one of her co-workers cut down his patient load (by random draw actually, which is another story), he asked an angry patient whether she would rather he continue to work at his unreasonable pace until he died from a heart attack or similar, and the answer was yes, because at least then youd be my doctor for a while longer first. (at which point he ...

When the media was let in to watch some of the Los Angeles Lakers five-on-five scrimmaging on Thursday morning, talk of Kobe Bryant being out on the practice floor, engaging in some serious trash-talk, made headlines.. Bryant scrimmaging at practice with his teammates this season has become a rarity, now that hes morphed practice days into rest, treatment and getting his 36-year-old body prepared for the rigors of an NBA game.. With all these days off, Bryants come up with some pretty good one-liners, Were soft like Charmin, being one of them. Some have used Bryants trash-talk on Thursday as an example of him snapping at practice or finally blowing up on the team, but Bryants trash-talk at practice is nothing unusual. Apparently, Young was the instigator. During their scrimmage, Young declared that no one could guard him one-on-one.. ...

Objective: To examine if increased general practice activity is associated with lower outpatient specialist clinic use. Design: Cross-sectional population based study. Setting: All 430 Norwegian municipalities in 2009. Participants: All Norwegians aged ≥65 years (n=721 915; 56% women-15% of the total population). Main outcome measure: Specialised care outpatient clinic consultations per 1000 inhabitants (OPC rate). Main explanatory: general practitioner (GP) consultations per 1000 inhabitants (GP rate). Results: In total, there were 3 339 031 GP consultations (57% women) and 1 757 864 OPC consultations (53% women). The national mean GP rate was 4625.2 GP consultations per 1000 inhabitants (SD 1234.3) and the national mean OPC rate was 2434.3 per 1000 inhabitants (SD 695.3). Crude analysis showed a statistically significant positive association between GP rates and OPC rates. In regression analyses, we identified three effect modifiers; age, mortality and the municipal composite variable of ...

BACKGROUND: The General Practice Research Database (GPRD) covers over 6% of the population of England and Wales and holds data on diagnoses and prescribing from 1987 onwards. Most previous studies using the GPRD have concentrated on drug use and safety. A study was undertaken to assess the validity of using the GPRD for epidemiological research into respiratory diseases. METHODS: Age-specific and sex-specific rates derived from the GPRD for 11 respiratory conditions were compared with patient consultation rates from the 4th Morbidity Survey in General Practice (MSGP4). Within the GPRD comparisons were made between patient diagnosis rates, patient prescription rates, and patient prescription plus relevant diagnosis rates for selected treatments. RESULTS: There was good agreement between consultation rates in the MSGP4 and diagnosis or prescription plus diagnosis from the GPRD in terms of pattern and magnitude, except for acute bronchitis or bronchiolitis where the best comparison was the

The general practitioner (GP) can play an important role in promoting a healthy lifestyle, which is especially relevant in people with an elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases due to hypertension. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the frequency and content of lifestyle counseling about weight loss, nutrition, physical activity, and smoking by GPs in hypertension-related visits. A distinction was made between the assessment of lifestyle (gathering information or measuring weight or waist circumference) and giving lifestyle advice (giving a specific advice to change the patients behavior or referring the patient to other sources of information or other health professionals). For this study, we observed 212 video recordings of hypertension-related visits collected within the Second Dutch National Survey of General Practice in 2000/2001. The mean duration of visits was 9.8 minutes (range 2.5 to 30 minutes). In 40% of the visits lifestyle was discussed (n = 84), but in 81% of these visits

Our results show that when patients rate doctors interpersonal skills as good on a patient experience questionnaire, this does not always indicate positive experiences of care as subsequently described in interviews, and can include important negative experiences. Very good response choices are, however, more likely to better reflect almost entirely positive care experiences.. This study was based on a small sample in English general practice, with 50 videotaped consultations. Video elicitation interviews are a labour-intensive approach requiring substantial commitment on behalf of the patient and the researcher, limiting the number that could be undertaken. However, we are confident that our sampling strategy generated sufficient high-quality data to provide a robust assessment of the discordance between questionnaire responses and subsequent accounts of care.15 Interviews used the consultation video recording to prompt patient reflections on care, and were thus not reliant on patient ...
It is a daily and unfortunate scene in the family physicians office: a succession of patients for whom the best prescription is a lifestyle modification. One such modification could be an increase in physical activity. The preventive health benefits of regular physical activity are well documented.1 Not only would physical health improve,2 but the psychologic health of most patients also would improve because of the positive effects on stress-related anxiety and depression.3,4. The obesity rate for Americans is increasing. Recent large-scale studies5 have estimated that between one fourth and one half of American adults are obese. The American Dietetic Association considers physical activity a vital component of weight management.6 McInnis7 and colleagues discuss the promotion of physical activity for overweight and obese patients in this issue of American Family Physician.. Despite clear benefits to many aspects of patients health, some family physicians are reluctant to advise patients to ...
BACKGROUND: Early identification of colorectal cancer is an unresolved challenge and the predictive value of single symptoms is limited. We evaluated the performance of QCancer (Colorectal) prediction model for predicting the absolute risk of colorectal cancer in an independent UK cohort of patients from general practice records. METHODS: A total of 2.1 million patients registered with a general practice surgery between 01 January 2000 and 30 June 2008, aged 30-84 years (3.7 million person-years) with 3712 colorectal cancer cases were included in the analysis. Colorectal cancer was defined as incident diagnosis of colorectal cancer during the 2 years after study entry. RESULTS: The results from this independent and external validation of QCancer (Colorectal) prediction model demonstrated good performance data on a large cohort of general practice patients. QCancer (Colorectal) had very good discrimination with an area under the ROC curve of 0.92 (women) and 0.91 (men), and explained 68% (women) and 66%

Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a chronic condition well suited to treatment in primary care settings.1 Patients with OUD can be treated in primary care settings with limited on-site resources and have similar outcomes to those emerging from specialized treatment centers.2 Family medicine physicians are experts in managing chronic conditions and can offer valuable continuity of care for patients, something which may be difficult to achieve with specialty providers. Family medicine physicians are also well versed in managing complex physical and mental health problems that often accompany OUD. Family medicine residency programs, in particular, are uniquely poised to address the opioid use epidemic by teaching the next generation of family physicians evidence-based skills and providing supervised experience in treating patients with OUD. Implementing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine within a family medicine residency program serves the clinics patients and creates a training ...

We aimed to compare, as strictly as possible, the spirometric performance of general practice and laboratory staffs. Performance depends on a number of factors related to the executor of the test-quality of subject instruction, intensity of coaching during forced manoeuvres, critical assessment of acceptability of separate manoeuvres, and test reproducibility.21 As we wished to minimise any potential bias in the comparison, we chose to equip practices and laboratories with the same type of spirometer and to check spirometer readings at the same 3 monthly intervals at both locations. Although portable turbine spirometers like the one used in our study cannot easily be calibrated on the spot and are not commonly used in laboratories, we believe that ruling out the equipment factor makes the comparison fairer, as turbine spirometers may produce FEV1 and FVC values which diverge from the advanced equipment normally used in laboratories.22. From a methodological point of view, randomisation of the ...

Reports the results of the first year of SAND (Supplementary Analyses of Nominated Data). SAND is a sub-sampling methodology of the BEACH (Bettering the Evaluation And Care of Health) program, a continuous national study of general practice activity, conducted between April 1998 and March 1999.. The SAND method examines patient health and aspects of health care delivery through data collected in parallel to the BEACH GP-patient encounter information. The SAND questions investigate: patient wellbeing, body mass, smoking, and alcohol use; prevalence of disease, for example hypertension, upper gastrointestinal conditions, musculoskeletal problems, hepatitis; severity of illness; co-morbidity; immunisation; mammography; occupation and employment; length of consultation; and GP satisfaction.. This report is the third in the General Practice Series produced by the University of Sydneys General Practice Statistics and Classification Unit, a collaborating unit of the Australian Institute of Health and ...
This is the first study to investigate practice related factors that may affect access to routine postpartum care in general practice. A high proportion of the practices involved in the study undertook antenatal shared care and all provided community postpartum care for mothers and infants on a regular basis.. The majority of consultations were allocated 15 minutes or less with solo GP practices having significantly higher odds of longer consultations for mothers. While quality of postpartum care cannot be assessed by consultation time alone, previous studies have found that GP consultations for either the mother or infant often take longer than 15 minutes [13], and take longer than anticipated [14]. It has also been found that short and rushed consultations were an impediment to women seeking care and to discussing issues of concern with the GP [14]. This problem is accentuated if an appointment is only made for either the mother or the infant, although both mother and infant need to be seen. ...
How do general practitioners view this possible change in financial arrangements?. There are reasons why it may be tempting to think that imposing a copayment for visiting a general practitioner is a good idea. It could instantly reduce the number of GP consultations, perhaps conserving funds for a possibly threatened Medicare. As GPs are gatekeepers, and therefore a bottleneck to accessing specialist services, fewer GP services might mean fewer downstream services. It might also be one of several means of reducing overdiagnosis.1 But is it really this straightforward?. Copayments are not new to health: we already encounter them between Medicare and specialist services, between the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and medicines, and between health insurance and private hospital charges. On this basis, insisting that GP services should be free seems to devalue GPs. Why should GP services be shouldered with a bargain price while nearly all others charge more? Indeed, many GPs already charge ...

The primary policy chosen for general practice was not always accepted and complied with by general practitioners, although the communication (of changes) and collaboration with involved organisations were rated as positive. In particular, the advised personal protective measures were difficult to implement in daily work and thus not executed by 44% of general practitioners. Half of the general practitioners were not satisfied with the patient information provided by the government. The influenza A(H1N1) pandemic highly impacted on general practitioners and practice assistants workloads, which was not always deemed to be adequately compensated ...
By Troy Patterson. Dr. Wes McCann has turned his childhood dream of a career in medicine into a growing success on both the business and health-care sides of the optical sector.. The 34-year-old London, Ont., optometrist has been practising for five years and owns four practices in the London area, including three private practices and a collaborative care practice with ophthalmology at the Advanced Vision Centre in London, where he is the clinical director of vision care.. And the love of his career has only grown from the business to the medical side of the field via the difference he can make in the lives of his patients through his skills, expertise and embracing of technological innovation..
