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)

Descriptive study of cooperative language in primary care consultations by male and female doctors. (2/5224)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the use of some of the characteristics of male and female language by male and female primary care practitioners during consultations. 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 ...

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 ...

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..

Editors note - In this article for the DoctorWeighsIn, Michael Wong, JD (Founder and Executive Director, Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety) recounts his meeting with Dr. Ken Rothfield that led to the making of the video, 5 Keys to Reducing Sepsis.. By Michael Wong, JD (Founder and Executive Director, Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety). According to the CDC, each year in the U.S., more than 1.5 million Americans will develop sepsis and at least 250,000 Americans will die from sepsis. Although these numbers may be staggering, they may not hit home until sepsis strikes a loved one, a friend, or even yourself.. For me, it struck when Dr. Ken Rothfield and I met at a healthcare conference. Dr. Rothfield is Chief Medical Officer at Medical City Dallas, which is operated by the Hospital Corporation of America. He is also a member of the advisory board of the Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS), a non-profit advocacy group that I founded more than seven ...
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 ...
Background: Digital consulting, using email, text, and Skype, is increasingly offered to young people accessing specialist care for long-term conditions. No patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) have been evaluated for assessing outcomes of digital consulting. Systematic and scoping reviews, alongside patient involvement, revealed 2 candidate PROMs for this purpose: the patient activation measure (PAM) and the physicians humanistic behaviors questionnaire (PHBQ). PAM measures knowledge, beliefs, and skills that enable people to manage their long-term conditions. PHBQ assesses the presence of behaviors that are important to patients in their physician-patient interactions. Objective: This study aimed to assess the face and content validity of PAM and PHBQ to explore whether they elicit important outcomes of digital consulting and whether the PROMs can isolate the digital consultation component of care. Methods: Participants were drawn from 5 clinics providing specialist National Health Service care
Clinician-patient discussions about preferences for life sustaining treatments could reduce unwanted treatments at the end-of-life
Background: Fear of cancer progression/recurrence (FOP/FCR) is considered one of the most prevalent sources of distress in cancer survivors and associated with lower quality of life and functional impairment. Detailed measures of FOP/FCR are needed because little is known about the knowledge of FOP/FCR, its associations with the patient-doctor relationship, and the rate of adequate therapy. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most prevalent cancer entities, and oral capecitabine is widely prescribed as treatment. Therefore, we initiated a pilot study to expand the literature on FOP/FCR in CRC outpatients receiving capecitabine and to generate hypotheses for future investigations. Methods: This study included 58 patients treated at a comprehensive cancer center. FOP/FCR was assessed with the Fear of Progression Questionnaire (FOP-Q-SF). Satisfaction with the relationships with doctors was assessed with the Patient-Doctor Relationship Questionnaire-9 (PRDQ-9). Levels of side effects were rated ...
Discussing a patients prognosis does not harm the patient-physician relationship and may even be beneficial, according to findings from a US-based
CHICAGO --- Doctors do not address patients by name in half of first-time visits, even though nearly all patients want this personal greeting, according to new research from Northwestern Universitys Feinberg School of Medicine.. Greetings may seem a rather mundane part of physician-patient communication, but they create a first impression that can affect the chance of developing a therapeutic relationship, said Gregory Makoul, lead investigator of the study, professor of medicine, and director of the Center for Communication and Medicine at the Feinberg School.. Doctors may figure I know who you are, you know who I am, lets go, noted Makoul. This is just one little slice of the visit, but it sets a tone for the rest of the encounter and the rest of the relationship. How you introduce yourself really can matter.. Organizations that accredit physicians and training programs emphasize communication as a critical skill for physicians. But this skill may not come naturally to all doctors, ...

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 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.

A system and method for transacting an automated patient communications session is described. A patent health condition is monitored by regularly collecting physiological measures through an implantable medical device. A patient communications session is activated through a patient communications interface, including an implantable microphone and an implantable speaker in response to a patient-provided activation code. An identification of the patient is authenticated based on pre-defined uniquely identifying patient characteristics. Spoken patient information is received through the implantable microphone and verbal system information is played through the implantable speaker. The patient communications session is terminated by closing the patient communications interface. The physiological measures and the spoken patient information are sent.

The simplest counter to this question is to analyze the risk patients incur when the doctor wont answer the phone. What happens when the doctor is the LAST person to know whats going on with patients? The answer is obvious. But malpractice companies could have concerns beyond patient safety.

We found 3 main themes that largely determine whether and how communication about TM/CAM takes place between patients and their primary care clinicians: acceptance/nonjudgment, initiation of communication, and safety/efficacy concerns. Patients perspectives about TM/CAM communication were clear and consistent. Most patients who are using TM/CAM for health or illness expect the clinician to initiate the discussion on this topic if communication is to occur. Patient data suggested clinician initiation, when carried out in a nonjudgmental fashion, would demonstrate openness to TM/CAM and would help patients overcome anticipated or previous negative interactions in discussions about TM/CAM. Patients usually did not expect their clinicians to be experts on the TM/CAM they were using.. Paradoxically, some clinicians interpreted the low levels of communication about TM/CAM as a sign of low use in their clinical practices. This assumption, together with the clinicians lack of understanding about ...
The average physician conducts between 140,000 and 160,000 medical interviews in the lifetime of his or her practice, making it the most frequently used medical procedure. Strong evidence links interpersonal processes of care to a variety of positive outcomes. For example, in studies done by faculty at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere, patients who report greater involvement in medical care are more satisfied with their physicians, report more understanding, reassurance and perceived control over their illness, and have improvements in medical conditions. Patients who explicitly report being treated with respect and dignity have higher trust, are more adherent to care and are more likely to receive optimal preventive care.. Studies that have directly observed patient-physician communication have demonstrated a positive effect of physician communication behaviors on patient outcomes including pain relief, satisfaction, compliance, and recall of information. In their interactions with African-American ...
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

MEASURES: We measure trust in: ...
New data suggest that problems in doctor-patient communication may account for at least some of the disparity. Studies show patients make most medical decisions based on some degree of consultation with their physician and that race influences a patients perception of the quality and quantity of information gathered from the physician consultation. In particular, patients perceive better communication with and support from physicians of the same race.. Led by Howard S. Gordon, M.D. of the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, researchers investigated how race influenced doctor-patient communication in the setting of patients with lung cancer and suspicious lung lesions. The investigators reviewed, transcribed, and analyzed audiotapes from 137 separate doctor-patient consultations.. They found that the degree of patient engagement with the physician impacted the frequency of information provided by physicians but race did not, despite ...

The District Attorneys Office does not regulate or advise law enforcement except as is explicitly provided by law. The following are suggestions to minimize the risk of unnecessary governmental destruction of private property and intrusion.. Health and Safety Code § 11362.5 provides that a physician can recommend marijuana use for any illness for which marijuana provides relief. Physician-patient communications are privileged. Inquiry into the patients physician-patient communications should be avoided unless necessary to obtain medical care for the patient.. Both the United States and the California Constitutions prohibit governmental taking without due process and compensation. Therefore, if an officer or officers believe marijuana cultivation and/or possession is pursuant to Health & Safety Code § 11362.5, but that the cultivation and/or possession exceeds these guidelines, the officer or officers should only seize that amount in excess of the guidelines..

Electronic Medical Records (EMR): Call for Empathy in the Patient-Clinician Relationship within a Technological Milieu: Implications for Professional Nursing Practice
My own dislike with the word provider doesnt come from an egotistical perspective or some desire to inflate my own position. Neither do I feel this is the case for most physicians. Speaking personally, it was my childhood dream to become a doctor. I enjoy what I do, consider the physician-patient interaction sacred, and strive to perfect the art of medicine each day Im on the medical floors. A good doctor is what I always hope to be. Seeing a different job description and name creep into the equation, one where Im known as the provider, is just as disheartening to me as it would be to any professional who strives to be the best at what they do and takes pride in their work-be it a pilot, an attorney, or even an actor-who wakes up to find they are being called transport provider, legal advice provider or entertainment provider by the people that employ them. Rightly or wrongly, I do consider it a bit of an insult when Im addressed primarily as a Provider to my patients. Im quite ...

Yuko Oyama. Professor Keefer. Writing Workshop II. August 1, 1998. Major Factors Affecting Communication Styles of American Children and Japanese Children: the Analog Age and the Digital Age. It is widely known that children develop their language not only by an innate faculty but also through social interaction. Language, a medium of communication, is learned as a side effect of childrens attempts to interact with others and learn about their world. In the process of language acquisition, children encounter various factors, which have great impacts on their communication styles. These factors vary with the passage of time. In this paper, I would like to examine major factors affecting communication styles of the children in the United States and Japan, both in the analog age and the digital age. First, I will compare communication styles of each country, and examine how maternal speech helps children develop culture-specific communication patterns. Next, I will predict how communication styles ...
Healthcare delivery has morphed through the decades, and we are in the infancy of a new and exciting phase - the age of patient empowerment. What exactly is this? Let me first share a story of what it is not in the realm of physician-patient interaction.
Being a physician always has been a busy job. This is especially true for primary care physicians, whose goals encompass a broad range of care delivery tasks on behalf of their patients. As such, it should come of little surprise that there is a growing trend of doctors spending less than 10 minutes with each of their patients. In essence, the doctor-patient relationship is nothing like what it once was, a notion backed in a new study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, which confirmed what any physician or patient could tell you: doctors spend more time with computers than they do with patients. In fact, computers handily beat out patients: medical interns spent 40 percent of their day with a computer compared with 12 percent of their day with actual living, breathing patients, according to the study.. It may seem like advances in technology seem to pull the doctor further from the patient, but that doesnt always have to be the case, says Michael Klein, M.D., president of the American ...

It was surprising that there were such drastic differences between patient perceptions and physician perceptions of heart failure disease severity, says Amrut V Ambardekar, an assistant professor in the division of cardiology at the University of Colorado and the studys lead author. We hope better understanding these differences will facilitate improved patient-physician communication regarding advanced heart failure therapies.. Researchers also assessed patient willingness to consider other life sustaining therapies to treat advanced heart failure, such as ventilation, dialysis or a feeding tube. Among the patients identified as high-risk by physicians, 77% were willing to consider LVAD, but 63% indicated they would decline other simpler life sustaining therapies.. More than likely, these inconsistencies indicate a poor understanding of these treatment options, Ambardekar says. Patients may not fully appreciate the invasive nature of some of these procedures, so we probably need to look ...

During the past few years, the physician-patient relationship has evolved from the physician assuming principal responsibilities for patients health care to a situation where patients and physicians often work together to resolve health care issues.17 The manner in which physicians use computers at the point of care has the potential to profoundly affect the physician-patient relationship, positively or negatively, depending on the behavior of the physician.1-6,9-14 Communication issues are one of the most important aspects of the interaction between the physician and the patient. Approximately 75% of primary care patients prefer that treatment decisions are made in conjunction with their physician.18 Empathy, reassurance, support, providing explanations, positive reinforcement, and information sharing all have been associated with positive health outcomes.19 Compared with a control group, patients of physicians who completed a program to enhance the communication skills of health care ...
Health-related quality-of-life (HRQL) assessments are thought to improve detection of physical and psychosocial problems and delivery of care, but few studies have convincingly evaluated these effects. Detmar and colleagues administered HRQL assessments to patients to determine whether they improve physician-patient communication. Effective communication is a proximal outcome measured in terms of physician awareness of HRQL, clinical management activities, physician and patient satisfaction with their medical interactions, and changes in each patients self-reported HRQL over time.. Ten physicians and 214 patients undergoing palliative chemotherapy participated in the longitudinal, randomized, crossover study. Patients in the intervention group completed an HRQL questionnaire before each standard chemotherapy follow-up visit. Physicians and patients received training in score interpretation. The control group did not fill out the HRQL and, in mid-study, physicians crossed over from the control ...

A national survey released today by Vitals found that, when it comes to the type of relationship people have with their doctors, there are three distinct patient personalities, each with their own unique set of qualities. The stakes for people finding satisfaction in their doctor-patient relationship are high. Studies in the past have confirmed that patients who trust their doctor are more likely to comply with medical advice and prescribed regimes and, as a result, be healthier. A healthy doctor-patient relationship depends on finding a physician who you trust and feel most comfortable with, said Mitch Rothschild, CEO of Vitals. Your doctor should sync with your own personality. Each person is unique and comes with different expectations for their doctor-patient relationship and with how they manage their personal health. Among some of the most astonishing findings, the study indicated that 56 percent of people spend several days researching the right doctor. The top reasons people cited as ...
I think the whole feminism approach to modern medicine isnt necessary. Of course, there have been (and still are) many unfair and wrong treatments against women in not only medicine but society as a whole. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. However, medicine shouldnt revolve around these gender issues or concerns. Medicine should stand alone as its own entity, a field of care that simply looks at how to care for a patient in the best possible way. More emphasis should be placed on doctor-patient interactions, and trying to settle issues that relate to patient care. While gender equality and equal rights is very important, I dont think its wise to let those issues take the front stage in modern medicine and risk overshadowing the fundamental principles of patient care..

Datatels Patient Communication and Engagement Platform enables healthcare providers to take a proactive approach to continuous individualized 1:1 communication with patients before and after procedures for better all-around healthcare.
The program started with an interactive session on communication styles, with an emphasis on interaction. Right out of the gate, members had to share grateful stories with newly met colleagues, long-time friends, and professional contacts they reconnected with. There were individual assessment tests to identify personal communication styles (direct, spirited, considerate, and systemic) and a discussion and exercises to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of each style. By the end of the session, participants were developing new strategies to help guide a direct report or to influence a boss based on a better understanding of how people with different communication styles respond to messages. If you want a quick summary of the program, check out my interview with the speaker, Erica Mahady from Illumination Consulting Partners.

Doris C Schmitt and Dr Christine Klapp. A guide for the physician on how to (and how not to) disclose unfavourable diagnostic outcomes. Caring and attentive are adjectives widely used by patients to define their ideal doctor. Delivering an unfavourable diagnosis can be emotionally challenging for both the patient and the doctor, and requires the latter not only to be a medical expert, but also an empathic and understanding human being.. Being firm but compassionate and paying attention to both verbal and non-verbal cues are skills of central importance to handle delicate situations, while cold, disinterested manners and inadequate listening skills can only further feed patients fears.. This video shows a conversation between a woman diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and her treating physician and highlights the behaviours to avoid while disclosing bad news as well as the positive behaviours necessary to build a strong, trust-based patient-doctor relationship..

Though an accepted benchmark for quality measurement, the medical record must be critically reappraised in light of emerging data. As these data indicate, the record is subject to recording bias, leading to underestimation of the actual quality of care.7 The data presented in this analysis also indicate that the medical record is flawed by false positives. This may lead to overestimates of the quality of important dimensions of care such as the physical examination.. These results do not appear to be incidental, as they cluster around specific domains and range widely in distribution among physician subjects. Nor are they explained by under-reporting of actor patients, who have been demonstrated to be a reliable gold standard for measuring physician performance.9,10 In this analysis, false positives did not cluster around individual actor patients.. Given time constraints and the inherent complexity of the patient-physician interaction, it might be anticipated that physician subjects would not ...
For the most part, Australian general practitioners do not have a clear idea of how the health care system works and how family medicine is practised in the United States of America. We hear that despite the enormous and rising cost (currently $US2.5 trillion per year) many people in the USA still have poor access to health care. We also hear that from the providers point of view, managed care interferes with clinical freedom and the patient-doctor relationship. Are these accurate impressions? How does family medicine in the USA compare to Australia and are there lessons for us in how they do things? | RACGP

Despite evidence that PrEP can reduce sexual transmission of HIV in MSM by more than 90%,1 PrEP discussion and prescription rates for MSM across OHS were undesirably low (29.6% and 17.4%, respectively). The most significant factor influencing whether a discussion about PrEP took place between patients and their providers was being assigned to 1 of 2 physicians who provide primary care for large numbers of MSM. Assignment is not a random process, and these providers may have been sought by MSM seeking PrEP. As with sex and race, patients may look for primary care physicians of the same sexual orientation. Concordance across social factors has been associated with better and more open physician-patient communication.12. While the majority (76%) of primary care providers are aware of PrEP and support its use as a public health intervention, prescription currently remains limited to few early adopters.13 These early adopters, represented in this study by the 2 providers with large numbers of MSM ...

Background: A small, randomized trial was conducted in 2001, that supplied preliminary evidence that a carefully structured, one-time individualized education and coaching intervention has the potential to provide important clinical benefits for patients suffering from cancer-related pain. The study did not explore the impact of the intervention in a larger, more diverse patient population; the duration of the interventions benefits; or the pathway by which the benefits are achieved. This project will attempt to address these issues while building on the literature that exists in palliation and physician-patient communication.. Objective/Hypothesis: The main objective of this research is to reduce barriers to pain control by creating more effective partnerships between patients and their health care providers.. Specific Aims: The aims of this study are: 1) to compare the effects on pain, cancer-related symptoms, and health-related quality of life of a standard educational intervention versus ...
This misses my point entirely. The issue Im concerned with isnt fee-for-service medicine, nor is it cannabis usage. (Id like to see the weed legally sold, without any need for a medical recommendation, which is why Ive been working with the Washington State Liquor Control Board to make that so in Washington.). The issue is the abuse of medical authority. When a physician says X is good for this patients health, or Y is bad for this patients health, that statement gets, and deserves, substantial deference from the legal system. Health is a primary value, and physicians are the accredited experts on what conduces to health.. To choose an example not at random: When a physician says that an abortion is indicated to protect the health of a pregnant woman, everyone but Sarah Palin wants that statement to carry great legal weight. (That includes those who think that the womans desire to terminate her pregnancy ought to be sufficient in its own right, without bothering about what the ...
