  • There appears to be significant variation in referral practices among GPs and this variation is greater for endometrial cancer, for which there are currently no evidence-based clinical practice guidelines in Australia. (
  • We used the z-test for proportions to compare demographic characteristics and the differences between cohorts who reported that a service or procedure was part of their current practice and who reported feeling more than adequately prepared for practicing them. (

  • Subject characteristics (oldest subjects, women, and blacks) were important determinants of physicians' choice of antihypertensive therapy. (
  • To evaluate whether this is a new phenomenon, we compared the proportions of regional family medicine residency graduates who report practicing and those who report feeling more than adequately prepared to practice various procedures and clinical services from 2 points in time-a survey in 2000 of graduates from 1996-1999 (n = 293) and a survey in 2012 or 2014 of graduates from 2010-2013 (n = 408). (
  • The recent graduates felt better prepared, but reported a narrower scope of practice than those who graduated more than a decade earlier. (
  • 1 - 5 At the same time, numerous studies have examined family medicine residency graduates' preparation for practice, 1 , 6 - 9 and a recent national report identified a clear gap between preparation and scope of practice, with graduates feeling well-prepared for clinical services that they are not using in practice. (
  • This study looks at the difference between both preparation for and the scope of practice among new family medicine residency graduates at 2 points in time, 2000 and 2012-2014. (
  • The survey addressed what graduates are doing in their current medical practice in a variety of services and procedures. (

  • Factors greatly contributing to this shortage include the low flow of primary care physicians (less graduates selecting and remaining in the primary care sector), changes in the working culture (e.g. newer generations of physicians working fewer hours than prior generations) and trends in retirement [5]. (
  • This study demonstrates an incongruity between the CCFP(EM) program's objective and the practice choices of its graduates. (

  • 11 ] An estimated 2.3% of annual physician visits in the U.S. are for LBP. (

  • How Does Hospital Ownership of Physician Practices Affect Which Hospitals Patients Use? (
  • Prior research has shown that physician integration with hospitals is associated with higher prices, but the latest evidence suggests it also affects which hospital a patient chooses to visit. (
  • A study in the Journal of Health Economics , supported by a NIHCM Foundation research grant, found that a patient is significantly more likely to choose the hospital that owns her doctor's practice-even if the costs are higher and the quality lower than at other local hospitals. (
  • This NIHCM-sponsored research showed that when physicians are in practices that are owned by a hospital, their patients are more likely to be admitted to that hospital than to other hospitals, even if its costs are higher and its quality is lower. (

  • Doctors in some hospitals prescribed 3 times as many antibiotics as doctors in other hospitals. (
  • Doctors in some hospitals prescribed up to 3 times as many antibiotics as doctors in similar areas of other hospitals. (
  • Through realigned payment policies, public reporting of adverse events, and readily available best practices, hospitals are being given powerful new incentives to use safer practices. (
  • Hospitals heavily rely on managers and staff to report adverse events internally, but barriers (cultural, organizational, physician relations, etc.) often inhibit reporting. (
  • Nonetheless, many hospitals and clinicians are slow to adopt or use recommended patient safety practices. (
  • On rare occasions, carriers deny coverage, which precludes affiliation with most hospitals and health maintenance organizations - which effectively means these really risky physicians are forced out of practice, which is exactly the desired result. (
  • The system will enable electronic transfer of medication information between doctors, pharmacists, hospitals and the Health Insurance Commission (HIC). (
  • There are public relations staff at all hospitals and most practices have advertised in the past, so they will have a vehicle for you to get noticed. (

  • The most systematic investigations concerning primary care have been conducted in practice-based research networks (PBRNs). (
  • 4 Yet, the generalizability of PBRN findings is possible only to the extent that study clinicians and their practice patterns or their patients are representative of the universe of primary care clinicians. (
  • Nutting et al argue: "[T]here remains strong reason to suspect that physicians who devote substantial portions of their time to research are not completely typical of the larger universe of family [and primary care] physicians. (
  • The bulk of the ambulatory medical care in the United States is provided by approximately 160,000 primary care clinicians of which family physicians are the largest segment. (
  • In addition, we were interested in family physicians' perceptions of barriers to the optimal assessment and treatment of hyperlipidemia in primary care practice. (
  • Primary care physicians (PCPs) can engage in strategies that are proven to be effective in reducing the progression rate of kidney disease. (
  • Using evidence-based guidelines, primary care physicians (PCPs) will be able to detect, monitor, and treat early kidney disease, thereby reducing mortality and improving quality of life for their patients. (
  • PRIMARY: To compare the clinical efficacy of two decision making strategies for initiating or changing antiretroviral therapy: decision making based on current clinical practice alone (i.e., initiating or changing therapy based on CD4 count decline and/or clinical progression) versus decision making based on plasma HIV RNA quantitation in addition to current clinical practice.

  • Covariables were gender and age for the CAPCP, and the percentage of non-whites in the population, the mean per capita income of the population, the ratio of primary care physicians and the ratio of hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants, as well as the rural/urban status for the county of practice in 1981 (large metropolitan area, small metropolitan area, or non-adjacent). (
  • This study looked at the net movement of clinically active primary care physicians across census regions between 1981 and 2003, and underscores the importance of performing specific regional analysis in large countries where socio-demographical and geographical heterogeneities can be observed.
