Medical practice: defendants and prisoners. (1/5224)

It is argued in this paper that a doctor cannot serve two masters. The work of the prison medical officer is examined and it is shown that his dual allegiance to the state and to those individuals who are under his care results in activities which largely favour the former. The World Health Organisation prescribes a system of health ethics which indicates, in qualitative terms, the responsibility of each state for health provisions. In contrast, the World Medical Association acts as both promulgator and guardian of a code of medical ethics which determines the responsibilities of the doctor to his patient. In the historical sense medical practitioners have always emphasized the sanctity of the relationship with their patients and the doctor's role as an expert witness is shown to have centered around this bond. The development of medical services in prisons has focused more on the partnership between doctor and institution. Imprisonment in itself could be seen as prejudicial to health as are disciplinary methods which are more obviously detrimental. The involvement of medical practitioners in such procedures is discussed in the light of their role as the prisoner's personal physician.  (+info)

DESIGN: Doctors' use of the language of dominance and support was explored by using concordancing software. Three areas were examined: mean number of words per consultation; relative frequency of question tags; and use of mitigated directives. The analysis of language associated with cooperative talk examines relevant words or phrases and their immediate context. SUBJECTS: 26 male and 14 female doctors in general practice, in a total of 373 consecutive consultations. SETTING: West Midlands. RESULTS: Doctors spoke significantly more words than patients, but the number of words spoken by male and female doctors did not differ significantly. Question tags were used far more frequently by doctors (P<0.001) than by patients or companions. Frequency of use was similar in male and female doctors, and the speech styles in consultation were similar. CONCLUSIONS: These data show that male and female doctors use a speech style which is not gender specific, contrary to findings elsewhere; doctors consulted in an overtly non-directive, negotiated style, which is realised through suggestions and affective comments. This mode of communication is the core teaching of communication skills courses. These results suggest that men have more to learn to achieve competence as professional communicators.  (+info)

Misunderstanding in cancer patients: why shoot the messenger? (3/5224)

AIM: We aimed to document the prevalence of misunderstanding in cancer patients and investigate whether patient denial is related to misunderstanding. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two hundred forty-four adult cancer outpatients receiving treatment completed a survey assessing levels of understanding and denial. Doctors provided the facts against which patient responses were compared. Multiple logistic regression analyses determined the predictors of misunderstanding. RESULTS: Most patients understood the extent of their disease (71%, 95% CI: 65%-77%) and goal of treatment (60%, 95% CI: 54%-67%). Few correctly estimated the likelihood of treatment achieving cure (18%, 95% CI: 13%-23%), prolongation of life (13%, 95% CI: 8%-17%) and palliation (18%, 95% CI: 10%-27%). Patient denial predicted misunderstanding of the probability that treatment would cure disease when controlling for other patient and disease variables (OR = 2.20, 95% CI: 0.99-4.88, P = 0.05). Patient ratings of the clarity of information received were also predictive of patient understanding. CONCLUSIONS: Patient denial appears to produce misunderstanding, however, doctors' ability to communicate effectively is also implicated. The challenge that oncologists face is how to communicate information in a manner which is both responsive to patients' emotional status and sufficiently informative to allow informed decision-making to take place.  (+info)

Women patients' preferences for female or male GPs. (4/5224)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate general preferences to see a male or female GP either some or all of the time, and specific preferences to see a female primary health care (PHC) worker for individual health issues; to compare these preferences with reported consultation behaviour; and to explore women's evaluations of the quality of PHC services in relation to their preferences and consultation behaviour. METHOD: Results are reported on 881 women aged 16-65 years who had consulted their GP in the previous 6 months. Logistical regression analysis was undertaken to evaluate whether a general preference to see another woman is more important than specific women's health issues in determining why some women regularly choose to consult a female GP. RESULTS: General preference was 2.6 times more important than specific health issues in predicting choice of a female GP in a mixed-sex practice. Nearly a half (49.1 %) of women attending male-only practices stated that they wanted to see a female GP in at least some circumstances, compared with 63.8% of women in mixed-sex practices. In total, 65.5% of the sample stated that there was at least one specific health issue for which they would only want to be seen by a woman PHC worker. The most positive evaluations of the quality of GP services were made by women normally seeing a male GP in mixed-sex practices and the least positive evaluations were given by women in male-only GP practices CONCLUSIONS: In order to meet women's expressed preferences, every GP practice should have at least one female GP available at least some of the time and every GP practice should employ a female PHC worker.  (+info)

Influence of physician and patient gender on provision of smoking cessation advice in general practice. (5/5224)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between physician and patient gender and physicians' self-reported likelihood of providing smoking cessation advice to smokers using hypothetical case scenarios in primary care. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis of a self-administered questionnaire. SUBJECTS: National random sample of Australian general practitioners (GPs). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self-reported likelihood of advising hypothetical male and female smokers to stop smoking during a consultation for ear-syringing ("opportunistic" approach) or a dedicated preventive health "check up". RESULTS: 855 GPs returned questionnaires (67% response rate). Significantly more respondents indicated they would be "highly likely" to initiate an opportunistic discussion about smoking with a male smoker (47.8% (95% confidence intervals (CI) = 44.5 to 51.2)) than a female smoker (36.3% (95% CI = 33.1 to 39.5]). Older, male GPs were less likely to adopt an opportunistic approach to smoking cessation for patients of either sex. Respondents were more likely to recommend that a male patient return for a specific preventive health check up. Furthermore, in the context of a health check up, a greater proportion in total of respondents indicated they would be "highly likely" to discuss smoking with a man (86.9%, 95% CI = 84.5 to 89.0) than a female smoker (82.5%, 95% CI = 79.8 to 84.9). CONCLUSIONS: As measured by physician self-report, the likelihood of advising smokers to quit during primary care consultations in Australia appears to be influenced by gender bias. Gender-sensitive strategies to support cessation activities are recommended.  (+info)

The limited use of digital ink in the private-sector primary care physician's office. (6/5224)

Two of the greatest obstacles to the implementation of the standardized electronic medical record are physician and staff acceptance and the development of a complete standardized medical vocabulary. Physicians have found the familiar desktop computer environment cumbersome in the examination room and the coding and hierarchic structure of existing vocabulary inadequate. The author recommends the use of digital ink, the graphic form of the pen computer, in telephone messaging and as a supplement in the examination room encounter note. A key concept in this paper is that the development of a standard electronic medical record cannot occur without the thorough evaluation of the office environment and physicians' concerns. This approach reveals a role for digital ink in telephone messaging and as a supplement to the encounter note. It is hoped that the utilization of digital ink will foster greater physician participation in the development of the electronic medical record.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Orthodox Jewish traditions. (7/5224)

OBJECTIVE: To describe cultural beliefs of Orthodox Jewish families regarding childbirth in order to help family physicians enhance the quality and sensitivity of their care. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: These findings were based on a review of the literature searched in MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Science Abstracts (1984 to present). Interviews with several members of the Orthodox Jewish community in Edmonton, Alta, and Vancouver, BC, were conducted to determine the accuracy of the information presented and the relevance of the paper to the current state of health care delivery from the recipients' point of view. MAIN MESSAGE: Customs and practices surrounding childbirth in the Orthodox Jewish tradition differ in several practical respects from expectations and practices within the Canadian health care system. The information presented was deemed relevant and accurate by those interviewed, and the subject matter was considered to be important for improving communication between patients and physicians. Improved communication and recognition of these differences can improve the quality of health care provided to these patients. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings rooted in different cultural views of childbirth and the events surrounding it can adversely affect health care provided to women in the Orthodox Jewish community in Canada. A basic understanding of the cultural foundations of potential misunderstandings will help Canadian physicians provide effective health care to Orthodox Jewish women.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Vietnamese traditions. (8/5224)

OBJECTIVE: To examine and understand how differences in the cultural backgrounds of Canadian physicians and their Vietnamese patients can affect the quality and efficacy of prenatal and postnatal treatment. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: The information in this paper is based on a review of the literature, supplemented by interviews with members of the Vietnamese community in Edmonton, Alta. The literature was searched with MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Sciences Abstracts (1984 to present). Emphasis was placed on articles and other texts that dealt with Vietnamese customs surrounding childbirth, but information on health and health care customs was also considered. Interviews focused on the accuracy of information obtained from the research and the correlation of those data with personal experiences of Vietnamese community members. MAIN MESSAGE: Information in the texts used to research this paper suggests that traditional Vietnamese beliefs and practices surrounding birth are very different from the biomedical view of the Canadian medical system. The experiences and beliefs of the members of the Vietnamese community support this finding. Such cultural differences could contribute to misunderstandings between physicians and patients and could affect the quality and efficacy of health care provided. CONCLUSIONS: A sensitive and open approach to the patient's belief system and open and frank communication are necessary to ensure effective prenatal and postnatal treatment for recent Vietnamese immigrants and refugees. Education and awareness of cultural differences are necessary for physicians to provide the best and most effective health care possible.  (+info)

Background/Purpose: For over two years, I experienced a variety of symptoms including: joint aches, sinus congestion, shortness of breath and chronic cough. An episode of hemoptysis led to laryngoscopy and a diagnosis of subglottic stenosis. Test results showed a high ANCA titer. Referral to a rheumatologist resulted in a diagnosis in 2012 of Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA), a rare disease with estimated incidence of 10-12 per million in the U.S. (Banerjee and Grayson, 2017). Ive been hospitalized twice with relapses and received serial rituximab.. Treatment: To provide a framework for enhancing patient-physician communication, I applied work tools I use regularly: 1) an org chart, 2) a quad chart, and 3) a risk chart. I made my org chart about 6 months after diagnosis, updating it in 2018 to add photos. The chart lists my physicians, their specialties, and their roles in managing my health. I use a quad chart as a briefing tool for clinic visits to list medical history, updates to ...
March 01,2007- New Global Survey Shows Effective Patient-Physician Communication Critical to Accurate and Timely Recognition of Neuropathic Pain
.
In a longitudinal cohort study reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Fenton et al found that discussion of cancer prognosis between oncologists and patients did not worsen patient judgment of the quality of the patient-physician relationship.. Study Details. The study involved 265 adult patients with advanced cancer who visited 38 oncologists in community- and hospital-based cancer clinics in Western New York and Northern California. Prognostic discussions were assessed via transcribed and coded audiorecorded visits using the Prognostic and Treatment Choices scale (prognostic discussion scale, PDS) and by patient survey 3 months after clinic visits. The strength of the patient-physician relationship was assessed by patient responses to The Human Connection (THC) scale and the Perceived Efficacy in Patient-Physician Interactions (PEPPI) scale at baseline and at 2 to 7 days and 3 months after clinic visits. The PDS scale covers nine prognosis domains. The THC scale assesses the strength of ...
The purpose of this study is to improve the clinical encounter through the design of the clinical environment. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial to measure the extent to which a newly designed clinical room, compared to a traditional room, affects the patient-physician interaction. We will judge this outcome by (a) videotaping encounters; and (b) conducting post-visit surveys with patients and an interview with physicians. We will use both qualitative and quantitative tools, including a validated and widely used interaction coding system on the videotapes, to draw inferences from these data ...
Our study found that patient perceptions of injustice related to the costs of care and conflicts of interest, inadequate physician training and health systems factors contributed to patient-physician mistrust (figure 1). Patient-physician interactions at one hospital that has implemented a primary care model embodying health reform goals showed improved patient-physician trust. The crisis of widening patient-physician mistrust in China revealed through this empirical research extends previous theoretical research.2 ,3 ,13 ,14 While patient-physician mistrust has been noted among minorities in the USA,15 ,16 it has become a common part of the Chinese patient experience. Although similar research in low income countries is lacking,17 our findings are consistent with research on patient-physician mistrust in Pakistan18 and India.19. Our data suggest that patient perceptions of societal injustice and the commercialisation of medicine play a major role in the development of patient-physician mistrust ...

Well, like it or not, I have watched technology chip away at the Doctor Patient Relationship and nursing time ... bit by bit over the years. Now, it is simply madness ... And, while it may not make a difference ... in certain scenarios where care is irrelevant and people will get better anyway (most clinic patients), it is a serious problem in the ICU, or in the OR to have 25 - 50% of physician time spent on computers. This is foolishness! Especially today ... in an era with availability of such sophisticated technology. Doctors and nurses spending precious patient care time on computers? This is CRAZY, not NORMAL! NOT RIGHT and NOT ACCEPTABLE. If I only had a chance to talk with Steve Jobs ... I am sure he would have seen the value of fixing this problem. Ah, well ... it is what it is ...

Patients have a limited ability to judge a physicians clinical competence, but they do have a sense of personal self-worth that says: "My time is just as valuable as your time." And with healthcare delivery increasingly shifting from provider-centric to a consumer-centric model, patients want their time to be respected more than ever.. If there is one dominant factor that quickly erodes the patient-physician relationship, it is lack of respect-particularly a feeling of disrespect for the patients time.. Patients have a limited ability to judge a physicians clinical competence, but they do have a sense of personal self-worth that says: "My time is just as valuable as your time." And with healthcare delivery increasingly shifting from provider-centric to a consumer-centric model, patients want their time to be respected more than ever..

Lisa, I dont find that "power" is a one-way street in the doctor-patient or patient-doctor relationship. Each party has their own potential to cause good and to cause harm to the other. You have written about the "power" of the doctor--now how about considering the "power" of the patient. The patient is the one who owns and knows their medical history and is able to parse out the history to the doctor in quantity and quality to the extent the patient desires. It is that personal history of the patient that represents the main tool that a physician has to make the correct diagnosis. An incomplete or intentionally inaccurate history by the patient can lead to the wrong diagnosis and then a bad outcome. Who is then found as a responsible individual to make the diagnosis and to advise treatment? It is the physician. The patient, therefore, holds the power of the history. May I suggest other aspects of the patient-doctor relationship where the patient holds the power? How about compliance with the ...

In practice the sensitivity and specificity of tests may be assumed closer to 90% in each case. Given these figures the numbers of people from 100 people test and correctly identified, incorrectly reassured or told they are ill depends on the prevalence. The prevalence of most pathology in the community is low often well below 1%. The figures are presented in the infographic below.. Prevalence 0.005% ( 5 per 1000 people, e.g. hypothyroidism ) 2% ( e.g. diabetes) 20% (e.g. common and plantar warts).. From these figures it can be seen that testing is more fruitful in circumstances in which the prevalence is high. The prevalence is higher in those who have signs and symptoms of a condition. One could argue therefore that the prevalence is much higher in those who choose to consult a doctor as opposed to the prevalence in the community. For iron deficiency anaemia these circumstances are well known. Which means an effective consultation in which the patient is heard and examined is crucial to ...

Your doctor may press gently on the outside of your nose and its surrounding areas. He or she may look inside your nasal passage to check for obstruction and further signs of broken bones. Your doctor may use anesthetics - either a nasal spray or local injections - to make you more comfortable during the exam.. X-rays and other imaging studies are usually unnecessary. However, your doctor may recommend a computerized tomography (CT) scan if the severity of your injuries makes a thorough physical exam impossible or if your doctor suspects you may have other injuries.. If you have a minor fracture that hasnt caused your nose to become crooked or otherwise misshapen, you may not need professional medical treatment. Your doctor may recommend simple self-care measures, such as using ice on the area and taking over-the-counter pain medications.. ...

The bivariate analysis and the logistic regression modeling of the family doctor-patient relationship index showed that negative self-rated health and being an IMSS affiliate were significantly associated with dissatisfaction, whereas older age and literacy of secondary school or above showed a protective effect against dissatisfaction (Table IV). Furthermore, after adjusting by health status (control of chronic disease), the effect of self-rated health on the family doctor-patient relationship was dependent upon whether the patient had hypertension, diabetes or both (interaction term; adjusted odds ratio [aOR]: 1.82, 95% CI: 1.1- 3.0, p ,0.05). Being IMSS affiliated had 69% more possibilities of dissatisfaction (aOR: 1.69, 95%CI; 1.31-2.18), secondary school or above (aOR: 0.78, 95% CI; 0.59 -0.99), and age (aOR: 0.99, 95% CI; 0.98-0.99) (Table V).. With regard to the organizational index, the bivariate analysis showed that the patients who had negative self-rated health were the most ...

I can live without my uterus," she said, with a soft, weak smile. "They can take it out, and Ill get by.". Shed make the tradeoff gladly, if it meant the pain would stop.. After the ultrasound, we led the gurney-slowly, this time-down the long hall to the ER, which by then was completely crammed with beds. Trying to find a spot for Rachels cot was like navigating rush-hour traffic.. Then came more bad news. At 8 p.m., they had to clear the floor for rounds. Anyone who was not a nurse, or lying in a bed, had to leave the premises until visiting hours began again at 9.. When they let me back in an hour later, I found Rachel alone in a side room of the ER. So much had happened. Another doctor had told her the mass was her ovary, she said. She had something called ovarian torsion-the fallopian-tube twists, cutting off blood. There was no saving it. Theyd have to take it out.. Rachel seemed confident and ready.. "Hes a good doctor," she said. "He couldnt believe that they left me here all day. ...

Doctors do make a difference when it comes to keeping children and teenagers from taking up tobacco. This may sound like a no-brainer, but until recently there wasnt strong evidence that anti-smoking efforts by pediatricians and other primary care doctors make a difference.. That evidence is now clear, according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group that today called for pediatricians and other primary care doctors to talk with children, teenagers and parents about the harms of smoking. The independent task force also endorsed doctors use of computer programs, videos and print materials with anti-tobacco messages.. "Parents ought to be looking for these conversations," Sue Curry, dean of the college of public health at the University of Iowa, tells Shots. Shes a member of the task force, and also researches anti-tobacco efforts..

2) However many patients your doctor may well have killed by error, your doctor is, we hope, highly-trained. At the very least, your doctor can be relied upon as a hugely helpful source of information.

Our objective at the Path of Amazing Success is to get you AND your doctor or other primary health care provider to reduce and then eliminate the more dangerous chemicals from your diet ...
A patient can talk to her doctor about signing a "Do Not Resuscitate" order. The patient usually must have a chronic condition that is serious enough to interfere with physica…l well-being and quality of life. A DNR can be signed before a crisis or emergency occurs, if a physician believes that a crisis could be expected to occur with a certain patients health. For example, a patient who had a severe heart attack and by-pass surgery, who then developed blood clots, and as a result of these and other complications is now stuck in bed with chronic shortness of breath and on oxygen might get his physician to sign a DNR. The process of having a doctor sign a DNR includes that the patient must understand the conditions or diseases he has and must not have any other options for a treatment that could result in a cure or improvement. Second, the patients thinking must not be clouded by depression or brought up because the patient has "given up trying to get well." Instead, the patient must ...

Yes. The BMI code is a status code that may be reported to indicate that a patients body mass was incorporated into the clinical evaluation of the patients health status. It is always a secondary code to the primary reason for an encounter (e.g., well-visit, weight loss, obesity, etc.). The latest guidelines did add instructions stating that the BMI codes (Z68.-) should be reported only when they meet the definition of a reportable diagnosis as defined in Section III of the guidelines. However, Section III generally does not apply to outpatient or office services. Clinical guidelines for assessing a patients BMI support clinically evaluating the result in relation to the patient presentation, comorbidities, etc., and thus support reporting the BMI code.. ...
Usually modern doctors examine the rate, rhythm, volume and character of the pulse. Dr.Raghavan, based on his training under Swami Dhananjaya Dathathreya Dev, delves deeper into the character of the patients pulse.

It helps to understand the pathogenesis, disease development and clinical manifestations. It also aids to plan therapy, precisely predict the response of patients to therapy, and to monitor their responses to therapy.. ...

But the biggest boon to sales may be in the comparison of groups 3&4 above to groups 1&2. Most retinal surgeons now follow a protocol similar to groups 3&4. If the retina is dry, they may decide not to reinject. Many doctors may still reinject but then increase the number of weeks until the next visit. When you think about it, were often waiting for a relapse of swelling before doing another injection. There is a greater likelihood that groups 3&4 wont do as well as group 1&2 than there is a chance that one drug is better than the other. If this is the case, Genentech still wins, because now injections will be given more often, perhaps even once a month. More injections equal more drug sold ...
