Problems with implementing guidelines: a randomised controlled trial of consensus management of dyspepsia. (1/1122)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the feasibility and benefit of developing guidelines for managing dyspepsia by consensus between general practitioners (GPs) and specialists and to evaluate their introduction on GPs' prescribing, use of investigations, and referrals. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial of effect of consensus guidelines agreed between GPs and specialists on GPs' behaviour. SETTING: Southampton and South West Hampshire Health District, United Kingdom. SUBJECTS: 179 GPs working in 45 practices in Southampton district out of 254 eligible GPs, 107 in the control group and 78 in the study group. MAIN MEASURES: Rates of referral and investigation and costs of prescribing for dyspepsia in the six months before and after introduction of the guidelines. RESULTS: Consensus guidelines were produced relatively easily. After their introduction referral rates for upper gastrointestinal symptoms fell significantly in both study and control groups, but no significant change occurred in either group in the use of endoscopy or radiology, either in terms of referral rates, patient selection, or findings on investigation. No difference was observed between the control and study group in the number of items prescribed, but prescribing costs rose by 25% (from 2634 pounds to 3215 pounds per GP) in the study group, almost entirely due to an increased rate of prescription of ulcer-healing agents. CONCLUSION: Developing district guidelines for managing dyspepsia by consensus between GPs and specialists was feasible. However, their acceptance and adoption was variable and their measured effects on some aspects of clinical behaviour were relatively weak and not necessarily associated with either decreased costs or improved quality of care.  (+info)

Registrars' and senior registrars' perceptions of their audit activities. (2/1122)

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain the level and quality of audit activity among junior doctors, their attitudes to audit, and their views on its educational value. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey in April 1991. SETTING: Yorkshire region. SUBJECTS: All 610 registrars and senior registrars recorded as employed in the region. MAIN MEASURES: Grade, current specialty, details of last audit participated in and its educational usefulness, and attitude to audit. RESULTS: 255 (41.8%) completed questionnaires were returned, 148 from registrars and 101 from senior registrars; grade was not indicated in six. 27 respondents were in general medicine, 26 in general surgery, 30 in anaesthetics, and 36 in psychiatry; other specialties had fewer than 20 respondents. About a fifth (54) of respondents, most in psychiatry (19/36, 53%), had not participated in audit. Among the 201 who had participated, the audit topics covered most components of care (access to services (47, 23%), communication (51, 25%), and appropriateness (158, 79%) and effectiveness (157, 78%) of treatment); only 84 (41%) audits set standards, and in only half of them had the doctors been involved in doing so. Doctors responsible for gathering data and those responsible for collating and reporting data found their experience significantly less useful than those who were not. 172 (86%) respondents considered that audit had helped patient care. Suggested improvements to the educational value of audit were mostly for better methods but included requests for less "witch hunting," better feedback, more training, more time, and more participation by consultants. CONCLUSIONS: The educational value of audit to junior doctors could be improved by better audit methods, guidance, and feedback.  (+info)

Diabetes care: who are the experts? (3/1122)

OBJECTIVES: To identify issues that patients and professionals consider important in diabetes care and differences in their priorities for care and to determine patients' and professionals' judgements of the relative importance of their chosen priorities. DESIGN: Structured group interviews using the nominal group technique. SETTING: Five district health authorities on Tyneside. SUBJECTS: Five nominal groups: expert (seven), non-expert (seven) health care professionals; insulin dependent (four), non-insulin dependent patients (eight); and carers of diabetic patients (eight). MAIN MEASURES: Items important in diabetes care to each nominal group (themes of care), ranked into a series of "top 10" items for each group, and allocated a score according to relative importance to individual members; scores were standardised by individual weighting and group weighting for comparison within and between groups. RESULTS: Patients and professionals agreed that information given to patients, interaction between professionals and patients, patient autonomy, and access were important for good diabetes care, but the importance assigned to each differed. Thus the professionals emphasised empathy and aspects of good communication and patients the desire to know enough to live a "normal" life. Differences were also found within the patient groups; these related to changes in patients' needs at specific points in the development of their illness and in their orientations to care. CONCLUSION: Patients differ from professionals in their orientation to diabetes care, and they can, and should, be involved in setting priorities for care. Since these priorities are dynamic further work is needed to explore the nature of patient satisfaction with diabetes care.  (+info)

Patterns of anti-inflammatory therapy in the post-guidelines era: a retrospective claims analysis of managed care members. (4/1122)

Published and widely disseminated guidelines for the care and management of asthma characterize asthma as a chronic, inflammatory disease and propose specific recommendations for therapy with inhaled anti-inflammatory medications. In a retrospective analysis of medical and pharmacy claims data of approximately 28,000 asthmatic members from five managed care settings, the dominant pattern of pharmacologic therapy that emerged was the use of bronchodilators without inhaled anti-inflammatory drug therapy. In addition, a significant proportion of asthmatic patients received no prescription drug therapy for asthma. Less than one third of asthmatic patients received any anti-inflammatory therapy and the majority of these received one or two prescriptions per year. Specialist physicians were two to three times more likely than non-specialists during a study period of 1 year to prescribe an anti-inflammatory medication, and were half as likely to have their asthmatic patients experience an emergency department or hospital event.

Patient referral from generalists to specialists is a critical clinic care process that has received relatively little scrutiny, especially in academic settings. This study describes the frequency with which patients enrolled in a prepaid health plan were referred to specialists by general internal medicine faculty members, general internal medicine track residents, and other internal medicine residents; the types of clinicians they were referred to; and the types of diagnoses with which they presented to their primary care physicians. Requested referrals for all 2,113 enrolled prepaid health plan patients during a 1-year period (1992-1993) were identified by computer search of the practice's administrative database. The plan was a full-risk contract without carve-out benefits. We assessed the referral request rate for the practice and the mean referral rate per physician. We also determined the percentage of patients with diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision, who were referred to specialists. The practice's referral request rate per 100 patient office visits for all referral types was 19.8. Primary care track residents referred at a higher rate than did nonprimary care track residents (mean 23.7 vs. 12.1; P < .001). The highest referral rate (2.0/100 visits) was to dermatology. Almost as many (1.7/100 visits) referrals were to other "expert" generalists within the practice. The condition most frequently associated with referral to a specialist was depression (42%). Most referrals were associated with common ambulatory care diagnoses that are often considered to be within the scope of generalist practice. To improve medical education about referrals, a better understanding of when and why faculty and trainees refer and don't refer is needed, so that better models for appropriate referral can be developed.  (+info)

Subspecialist referrals in an academic, pediatric setting: rationale, rates, and compliance. (6/1122)

Appropriate referrals reduce healthcare costs and enhance patient satisfaction. We evaluated the subspecialty referral pattern of a managed care general pediatric office over a 4-month period. Three-hundred-forty-six referrals (267 meeting inclusion criteria) to 24 subspecialties were generated during 4,219 office visits, with five subspecialties receiving 59% of the referrals. The main objective of each referral was management (100), diagnostic assistance (75), special procedure (63), or a combination (29). Patients kept less than half of the referral appointments, with the highest (80%) and lowest (28%) compliance rates observed in cardiology and ophthalmology, respectively. Appointments made within four weeks of the referral were more likely to be kept than those with greater lag time (P = 0.001). The subspecialists prepared written, post-consultation responses to the referring physician in 73% of cases. Presumptive and post-consultation diagnoses were congruent in 78% of those cases in which both diagnoses were noted. Overall, the managed care format enabled our practice to track referral outcomes. The subspecialists' written responses also allowed for an educational exchange between physicians. Compliance with referral appointments is a substantial problem that needs to be addressed.  (+info)

Attitudes and behavioral intentions regarding managed care: a comparison of academic and community physicians. (7/1122)

Physicians' attitudes toward managed care and the impact of these attitudes on behaviors that affect patient care are important factors in managed care reform. In addition, the attitudes of academic physicians may influence their willingness to reform medical education in an effort to prepare students to practice under managed care. Although it is a conventional opinion that the academic health center and its academic physicians are antagonistic toward managed care, there has not been a direct comparison of the attitudes of these physicians to those of practicing community physicians. We used a self-administered questionnaire to assess attitudes toward managed care and behavioral intentions regarding practices related to managed care; a sample of academic physicians (n = 129) was compared with a sample of community physicians (n = 307). Community physicians were less negative in their evaluations of the quality of care in a managed care environment, but no differences were identified between the two groups with regard to the cost-effectiveness, inevitability, or need to adapt to managed care. Academic specialists were more likely than academic primary care physicians to rate managed care as something to which they needed to adapt. Community physicians were less likely to report a willingness to change their referral patterns. Aggregating across practice type, we also uncovered systematic differences between primary care and specialist physicians. The data suggest that opinions about quality and cost-containment in managed care are significant correlates of intentions to change practice behaviors.  (+info)

The economic functions of carve outs in managed care. (8/1122)

This paper considers the economic functions of contracting separately for a portion of the insurance risk, offering both the payer's (i.e., employer's) and the health plan's perspective. Four major forms of carve outs are discussed: (1) payer specialty carve outs from all health plans; (2) payer specialty carve outs from only indemnity and preferred provider organization arrangements; (3) individual health plan carve outs to specialty vendors; and (4) group practice carve outs to specialty organizations. The paper examines whether carving out care fosters the payer's goal of delivering reasonable healthcare efficiently, how adverse selection affects the provision of healthcare, and the costs of providing this specialized care.  (+info)

Despite the obvious comic element in the above quotation, Mr. Williams brings to light the growing influence of clinical specialty recognition (CSR) among health care providers and the patients they serve. Special Interest Group (SIG) 3, formerly Special Interest Division 3, has had many lively debates in the past on whether our profession should pursue formal recognition of voice as a clinical specialty. The topic has recurred regularly over the years, with similar impassioned and informed positions being expressed on either side of the debate. This article will provide a general overview of how this issue has been addressed by our SIG in the past and a starting point for future discussions. Because this article has been written from an historical perspective and before our name change to SIG3, the use of the word Division will be retained in the ensuing descriptions ...

Anti-Aging Medicine is a clinical specialty that extends the concept of preventative health care to embrace the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of aging-related diseases, coupled with the aggressive yet gentle disease treatment. Anti-Aging Medicine is the fastest growing medical subspecialty in the world. In 1993 a dozen physicians created the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and today there are over 20,000 members in 90 countries. Whereas, traditional medicine focuses on treating the effects of the aging process and treats external symptoms which have internal causes, Anti-aging medicine focuses on treating or preventing the causes of aging and works to change the process of aging itself. Anti-Aging medicine is scientific, evidence based medicine that is well documented by peer-reviewed journals. One of the first steps in Anti-Aging medicine is correcting unhealthy lifestyles that leads to many of the degenerative conditions associated with aging. Diet, exercise and ...

Context: Because of the extent of the HIV pandemic, but also due to some specific historical conditions, HIV medicine has evolved as a field of its own in South African medicine. With the massive scale of the roll-out of antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) in South Africa, the need to devolve ARV roll-out into primary health care (PHC) services is currently being discussed. Family medicine was recognised in South Africa as a specialist qualification in August 2007 and is still undergoing an exciting process of defining its content and future role in the community of medical specialities. The South African approach to family medicine focuses strongly on the role of the family physician in the PHC setting at district hospitals and in PHC facilities within the South African district health framework. Objectives: The objectives of this article are to discuss the relation between family medicine and the field of HIV medicine. Key message: Family medicine in the South African context is the clinical discipline most

Todays radiology reports of chest images for routine care are still largely expert based, mostly unstandardised and generally do not contain quantitative outcome data. In other clinical specialities like cardiology, quantitative post-processing methods to acquire objective measures of coronary artery stenosis and of pulmonary artery and aorta dimensions are available and well-implemented [28, 29].. For bronchiectasis patients, there are currently three multidimensional scores that include radiological assessment: the Bronchiectasis Severity Index (BSI) [30]; the FACED (forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1), age, chronic colonisation, extension and dyspnoea) score [31]; and the E-FACED (FACED plus exacerbations) score [32]. In the BSI, 1 point is assigned where the number of affected lobes is three or higher, or where cystic bronchiectasis is present (maximum BSI score: 26). Other parameters are age, body mass index, FEV1 % predicted, hospital admissions, exacerbations, dyspnoea score, ...

Point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) is a diagnostic or procedural guidance ultrasound that is performed by a clinician during a patient encounter to help guide the evaluation and management of the patient. PoCUS is not meant to replace comprehensive ultrasound imaging, which is a consultative test that focuses on traditional ultrasound methods for fully evaluating anatomy and physiology. Rather, it is a complementary diagnostic tool that can help make the clinician more efficient, more independent, and more confident in their medical decision making.. Nationally, there is an increasing penetration of PoCUS into various clinical specialties that have not traditionally used clinician performed ultrasound at the bedside. Family medicine residencies (amongst many other specialties) and medical schools use PoCUS to teach future physicians anatomy and pathology. In fact, the philosophy of medical schools instruction of anatomy is transitioning from traditional dissection of cadavers to understanding ...

The proposed framework suggests introduction of a 2 year Master of Medicine (M. Med) program as the first level of specialists with focus on skill development and providing care to community. This may be considered equivalent to Masters/ M Phil programs or existing Diplomas in various clinical specialties. These post-graduate students will be trained mainly to enhance clinical skills rather than get engaged in basic research. The curriculum would be competency based and skill based. The proposed reforms in undergraduate medical education with early clinical exposure and an internship program freed of the stress of simultaneously preparing for PG entrance examinations would ensure that at the entry level the Indian Medical Graduate would be adequately prepared to enjoy and go-through this two year PG training. The quality of the output would therefore be far better than the current outgoing diploma graduates. These PGs would also be able to function as undergraduate teachers at the entry level. ...

The definition of primary care has evolved significantly in the United States over the past 30 years, shifting from a model based on clearly stratified clinical specialties and disciplines to a somewhat more loosely defined provider landscape centered on principles of leadership and teamwork.1,2,3 This trend particularly in the United States can be ascribed to a number of factors: concerns about access to care especially among underserved populations, growing uncertainty about insurance coverage and medical society and academic efforts to evolve health professions training and education.4,5,6,7 These issues have created a platform for health care problem-solving, very often expressed through grassroots, academic, government or industry-driven efforts to provide the best possible care during an increasingly challenging situation.8 This evolution in the United States tracks the status quo in much of the rest of the world, where health care problem-solving in the face of various societal pressures ...
Background: Uppsala County in Sweden launched an e-health patient portal named Journalen in 2012, which allows patients to access their medical records over the Internet. However, the launch of Journalen was critically debated in the media. The professionals were strongly skeptical and one reason was possible negative effects on their work environment. This study hence investigates the assumptions and perspectives of physicians in order to understand their framing of the patient portal in relation to their work environment.. Objective: The study uses the concept of Technological Frames to examine how physicians in different specialties make sense of the patient portal in relation to their work environment.. Methods: 12 semi-structured interviews were conducted with physicians from different specialties. Interviews were transcribed and translated. A theoretically informed thematic analysis was performed.. Results: The thematic analysis revealed four main themes: work tool, process, workload, and ...

An increasing number of medical specialists prefer to work part-time. This development can be found worldwide. Problems to be faced in the realization of part-time work in medicine include the division of night and weekend shifts, as well as communication between physicians and continuity of care. People tend to think that physicians working part-time are less devoted to their work, implying that full-time physicians complete a greater number of tasks. The central question in this article is whether part-time medical specialists allocate their time differently to their tasks than full-time medical specialists. A questionnaire was sent by mail to all internists (N = 817), surgeons (N = 693) and radiologists (N = 621) working in general hospitals in the Netherlands. Questions were asked about the actual situation, such as hours worked and night and weekend shifts. The response was 53% (n = 411) for internists, 52% (n = 359) for surgeons, and 36% (n = 213) for radiologists. Due to non-response on specific
Relational Energy Therapy (RET) develops specific healing skills that can be readily applied to different clinical specialties. By following the RET protocols, energy therapists can leverage their existing skills that address chakra health and development, chakra cord clearing, and astral healing work, by porting the same skills over to a clinical situation.. Here is one example of a particular clinical case, of addressing cataracts in both eyes. Below is the protocol, which is taken directly from etheric and astrally-based skills used in chakra and chakra cord energy therapy work.. 1. Therapeutic pre-session dialogue: every RET session begins with the healer-therapist reviewing the clients history and goals for the session, to find access points for the application of particular energy healing skills. In the case of age-related cataracts, there are two applications of the RET skill set that can be utilized (Etheric work, and Astral or emotional body work), so in the dialogue we want to explore ...

The ID specialist works with your personal physician to determine which diagnostic tests are appropriate. If treatment is necessary, your doctor and the ID specialist will work together to develop a treatment plan best suited to your needs. Often you will be asked to return to the ID specialist for a follow-up visit. This allows the specialist to check on your progress, confirm that the infection is gone and help prevent it from coming back. If you acquire an infection while in the hospital, the ID specialist will work with other hospital physicians to help direct your care. The specialist also might provide follow-up care after you go home. If your ID specialist is also your personal physician, he or she will coordinate your care, referring you to other specialists when necessary.
