Legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon--the first year's experience. (2/3874)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: On October 27, 1997, Oregon legalized physician-assisted suicide. We collected data on all terminally ill Oregon residents who received prescriptions for lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act and who died in 1998. The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

The effect of race and sex on physicians' recommendations for cardiac catheterization. (3/3874)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have reported differences in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of the patient. Whether the differences stem from differences in the recommendations of physicians remains uncertain. METHODS: We developed a computerized survey instrument to assess physicians' recommendations for managing chest pain. Actors portrayed patients with particular characteristics in scripted interviews about their symptoms. A total of 720 physicians at two national meetings of organizations of primary care physicians participated in the survey. Each physician viewed a recorded interview and was given other data about a hypothetical patient. He or she then made recommendations about that patient's care. We used multivariate logistic-regression analysis to assess the effects of the race and sex of the patients on treatment recommendations, while controlling for the physicians' assessment of the probability of coronary artery disease as well as for the age of the patient, the level of coronary risk, the type of chest pain, and the results of an exercise stress test. RESULTS: The physicians' mean (+/-SD) estimates of the probability of coronary artery disease were lower for women (probability, 64.1+/-19.3 percent, vs. 69.2+/-18.2 percent for men; P<0.001), younger patients (63.8+/-19.5 percent for patients who were 55 years old, vs. 69.5+/-17.9 percent for patients who were 70 years old; P<0.001), and patients with nonanginal pain (58.3+/-19.0 percent, vs. 64.4+/-18.3 percent for patients with possible angina and 77.1+/-14.0 percent for those with definite angina; P=0.001). Logistic-regression analysis indicated that women (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) and blacks (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) were less likely to be referred for cardiac catheterization than men and whites, respectively. Analysis of race-sex interactions showed that black women were significantly less likely to be referred for catheterization than white men (odds ratio, 0.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.7; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the race and sex of a patient independently influence how physicians manage chest pain.  (+info)

Prospective cohort study of antioxidant vitamin supplement use and the risk of age-related maculopathy. (5/3874)

In a prospective cohort study, the authors examined whether self-selection for antioxidant vitamin supplement use affects the incidence of age-related maculopathy. The study population consisted of 21,120 US male physician participants in the Physicians' Health Study I who did not have a diagnosis of age-related maculopathy at baseline (1982). During an average of 12.5 person-years of follow-up, a total of 279 incident cases of age-related maculopathy with vision loss to 20/30 or worse were confirmed by medical record review. In multivariate analysis, as compared with nonusers of supplements, persons who used vitamin E supplements had a possible but nonsignificant 13% reduced risk of age-related maculopathy (relative risk = 0.87, 95 percent confidence interval (CI) 0.53-1.43), while users of multivitamins had a possible but nonsignificant 10% reduced risk (relative risk = 0.90, 95% CI 0.68-1.19). Users of vitamin C supplements had a relative risk of 1.03 (95% CI 0.71-1.50). These observational data suggest that among persons who self-select for supplemental use of antioxidant vitamin C or E or multivitamins, large reductions in the risk of age-related maculopathy are unlikely. Randomized trial data are accumulating to enable reliable detection of the existence of more plausible small-to-moderate benefits of these agents alone and in combination on age-related maculopathy.  (+info)

Preventing zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons: the role of physicians and veterinarians. (6/3874)

We surveyed physicians and veterinarians in Wisconsin about the risk for and prevention of zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons. We found that physicians and veterinarians hold significantly different views about the risks posed by certain infectious agents and species of animals and communicate very little about zoonotic issues; moreover, physicians believe that veterinarians should be involved in many aspects of zoonotic disease prevention, including patient education.  (+info)

Views of managed care--a survey of students, residents, faculty, and deans at medical schools in the United States. (7/3874)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Views of managed care among academic physicians and medical students in the United States are not well known. In 1997, we conducted a telephone survey of a national sample of medical students (506 respondents), residents (494), faculty members (728), department chairs (186), directors of residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics (143), and deans (105) at U.S. medical schools to determine their experiences in and perspectives on managed care. The overall rate of response was 80.1 percent. RESULTS: Respondents rated their attitudes toward managed care on a 0-to-10 scale, with 0 defined as "as negative as possible" and 10 as "as positive as possible." The expressed attitudes toward managed care were negative, ranging from a low mean (+/-SD) score of 3.9+/-1.7 for residents to a high of 5.0+/-1.3 for deans. When asked about specific aspects of care, fee-for-service medicine was rated better than managed care in terms of access (by 80.2 percent of respondents), minimizing ethical conflicts (74.8 percent), and the quality of the doctor-patient relationship (70.6 percent). With respect to the continuity of care, 52.0 percent of respondents preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 29.3 percent preferred managed care. For care at the end of life, 49.1 percent preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 20.5 percent preferred managed care. With respect to care for patients with chronic illness, 41.8 percent preferred fee-for-service care, and 30.8 percent preferred managed care. Faculty members, residency-training directors, and department chairs responded that managed care had reduced the time they had available for research (63.1 percent agreed) and teaching (58.9 percent) and had reduced their income (55.8 percent). Overall, 46.6 percent of faculty members, 26.7 percent of residency-training directors, and 42.7 percent of department chairs reported that the message they delivered to students about managed care was negative. CONCLUSIONS: Negative views of managed care are widespread among medical students, residents, faculty members, and medical school deans.  (+info)

Mortality in relation to smoking: 20 years' observations on male British doctors. (8/3874)

In 1951 the British Medical Association forwarded to all British doctors a questionnaire about their smoking habits, and 34440 men replied. With few exceptions, all men who replied in 1951 have been followed for 20 years. The certified causes of all 10 072 deaths and subsequent changes in smoking habits were recorded. The ratio of the death rate among cigarette smokers to that among lifelong non-smokers of comparable age was, for men under 70 years, about 2:1, while for men over 70 years it was about 1-5:1. These ratios suggest that between a half and a third of all cigarette smokers will die because of their smoking, if the excess death rates are actually caused by smoking. To investigate whether this is the case, the relation of many different causes of death to age and tobacco consumption were examined, as were the effects of giving up smoking. Smoking caused death chiefly by heart disease among middle-aged men (and, with a less extreme relative risk, among old men,) lung cancer, chronic obstructive lung disease, and various vascular diseases. The distinctive features of this study were the completeness of follow-up, the accuracy of death certification, and the fact that the study population as a whole reduced its cigarette consumption substantially during the period of observation. As a result lung cancer grew relatively less common as the study progressed, but other cancers did not, thus illustrating in an unusual way the causal nature of the association between smoking and lung cancer.  (+info)

The National Physician Survey (NPS) gathers opinions of physicians, medical residents and students across Canada. It is the largest census survey of its kind and provides insight from current and future doctors on a wide range of health care issues. It is produced in collaboration between the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Royal College).
Little is known about racial differences in the usage of IT among physicians, and this empirical analysis, using a national physician survey, was an attempt to foster an understanding of the role that physician race/ethnicity may play in the usage of IT. Our data have at least several important advantages over prior IT adoption studies in the literature. To the best of our knowledge, this research is the first attempt to understand the role of physician race/ethnicity in the use of IT at the national level. Also, the sample in the study is nationally representative and is reliable to dependent variables. Finally, while prior studies have narrowly focused on a single IT variable such as electronic communication26 and e-prescribing,27 our study included nine different IT variables in exploring the association of each IT utilization with race/ethnicity. Particularly, given the government efforts to develop effective clinical decision-support programs nationwide in an effort to enhance quality of ...

Electronic health records (EHRs) have an impact on physicians’ well-being and stress levels. We studied physicians’ experiences with EHRs and their experienced time pressure and self-rated stress by an electronic questionnaire sent to Finnish physicians aged under 65 in 2017. Our sample was 2980 physicians working in the public sector, health care centers (35.5%) or hospitals (64.5%). Experienced technical problems were positively associated with experienced time pressure, whereas user-friendliness of the EHRs was negatively associated with experienced time pressure. Low perceived support for internal cooperation was associated with high levels of time pressure in hospitals. Those experiencing high levels of technical problems were 1.3 times more likely to experience stress compared to those experiencing low levels of technical problems. Better user-friendliness of the EHRs was associated with lower levels of self-rated stress. In both working environments but more strongly in primary health

By the year 2020, when many in my generation of physicians are no longer practicing, healthcare will look very different due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The road ahead will require a lot of collaboration between physicians, hospitals, health plans, patients, and more. Physician leadership is now needed and wanted at all levels. And I think it is very important that younger physician leaders-the physicians who will actually be practicing in the future-join in the planning for and leadership of that future.. I am never surprised at just how talented and well-rounded physicians are. And I am not just talking about physicians that I work with, but all who successfully navigated med school. So the question is not whether there are enough good young leaders, but how they can most effectively be engaged and then empowered to lead?. Our medical group has recognized the value of physician leadership for decades. We promote mentorship by senior leaders, conduct a number of leadership courses every ...
From Chris Ng, MD, Chief of Staff. The U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" rankings are based on a variety of quantitative and qualitative factors, one of which is a reputational score assessed by board-certified physicians in each specialty.. This year, all U.S. physicians with designated board certifications will be eligible to participate.. If you are eligible and enrolled in Doximity - a free, online professional network - you will be surveyed separately through an email invitation.. Eligible physicians who are not Doximity users will be surveyed by mail.. While we all know that the U.S. News rankings are neither the most accurate nor relevant metric for the clinical effectiveness and even the reputation of academic medical centers, expanding the number of physicians who can vote will likely improve the accuracy of the survey.. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.. ...
Changing the way primary care physicians are paid is one area insurers can help address, but health plans are also finding other ways to help them improve their practices, Isham says. "We have to make primary care a more attractive profession relative to other options medical students have.". Overall, enrollment in U.S. medical schools is expected to grow 17 percent by 2012, according to a survey of medical schools by the Association of American Medical Colleges. That indicates progress toward the associations goal. Last year, it recommended that enrollment increase by 30 percent by 2015.. In 2005, the Council on Graduate Medical Education released a report predicting a shortage of about 85,000 physicians by 2020, due in part to the aging population. The American Academy of Family Physicians last year recommended that to meet the need for primary care physicians in 2020, the United States would have to train 3,725 family physicians and 714 osteopathic physicians annually, with an overall goal ...

Survey results demonstrated that both physicians and treatment-experienced HIV patients view reaching an undetectable viral load and increasing CD4 cells as very important to successful treatment. More than 80% of patients surveyed and 57% of their physicians view reaching an undetectable viral load as very important to successful treatment. Both patients (88%) and physicians (55%) view significantly increased CD4 cells as very important to successful treatment.. Physicians tend to underestimate their patients willingness to use and comply with an injectable antiretroviral medication. A majority (79%) of patients said that they would be willing to try an injectable medication if it suppressed the virus and gave them more energy, and only 20% of physicians reported having major reservations about prescribing this type of medication. Overall, 68% of physicians surveyed reported minor or major reservations about prescribing an injectable medication, and the large majority (90%) of these physicians ...

In a national sample of elderly Medicare beneficiaries admitted to hospital with medical conditions, we found that patients treated by older physicians had higher 30 day mortality than those cared for by younger physicians, despite similar patient characteristics. These associations were found among physicians with low and medium volumes of patients but not among those with high volumes. Readmission rates and costs of care did not meaningfully vary with physician age. Taken together, our findings suggest that differences in practice patterns or process measures of quality between physicians with varying years of experience reported in previous studies123437 might have a meaningful impact on patient outcomes.. Mechanisms that could explain our current findings can be broadly categorized into effects of age ("age effects") versus effects arising from differences in how younger and older physicians trained ("cohort effects"). It is possible that physicians further from training are less likely to ...
JAMA Internal Medicine published a study about patients favoring women as their doctors. The study is centered on readmission and mortality rate among the elderly. The authors selected random data, in which a third of the physician sample were female. For the study, researchers examined hospital readmissions and mortality data for a random sample of traditional Medicare beneficiaries 65 or older who ended up in acute-care hospitals from Jan. 1, 2011, through Dec. 31, 2014. Those data consisted of slightly more than 1.5 million hospitalizations, in which patients were seen by 58,344 physicians. About a third of those physicians were women.. The researchers adjusted the data to account for different characteristics of hospitals and patients, as well as physician characteristics that were not based on sex, such as experience level. These types of adjustments ensure that the studys findings do not simply reflect a situation where male physicians are seeing sicker patients, for instance.. The female ...

Background - While health service use appears to be positively correlated with resource availability, no study has explored the interactions among health service supply, cardiovascular disease burden and health service use. The objective of the present study was to examine the relationship among cardiovascular evaluation and management intensity, physician supply and cardiovascular disease burden in the Canadian population.. Methods - The present cross-sectional, population-based study consisted of adult residents in Ontario in 2001. Cardiac evaluation and management intensity, the main outcome measure, was measured at the individual level, and consisted of receiving one or more of the following services: noninvasive cardiac testing, coronary angiography and statin use (the latter among individuals 65 years of age and older). Mortality was the secondary outcome measure. Cardiovascular disease burden, and cardiologist and primary care physician supply were measured at the regional (ie, county) ...

METHODS: In a cluster-randomized pilot trial eight breast cancer centers (two physicians per center) were randomized to either a complementary communication training program (9 h e-learning + 20 h on-site skills training) or to a control group without training. Each physician was asked to consult ten patients for whom he or she is not the physician in charge. We used mixed methods: Quantitative outcomes included physicians assessments (empathy, complexity of consultation, knowledge transfer) and patients assessments (satisfaction, empathy, knowledge transfer). For qualitative analyses, 15 (eight in the training and seven in the control group) videotaped consultations were analyzed based on grounded theory, and separate focus groups with the physicians of both groups were conducted ...

Introduced to U.S. medical schools in 1972, the field of literature and medicine contributes methods and texts that help physicians develop skills in the human dimensions of medical practice. Five broad goals are met by including the study of literature in medical education: 1) Literary accounts of illness can teach physicians concrete and powerful lessons about the lives of sick people; 2) great works of fiction about medicine enable physicians to recognize the power and implications of what they do; 3) through the study of narrative, the physician can better understand patients stories of sickness and his or her own personal stake in medical practice; 4) literary study contributes to physicians expertise in narrative ethics; and 5) literary theory offers new perspectives on the work and the genres of medicine. Particular texts and methods have been found to be well suited to the fulfillment of each of these goals. Chosen from the traditional literary canon and from among the works of ...

Should patients fire their doctors if they suspect burnout? In a recent PBS interview, Mayo Clinic CEO Dr. John Noseworthy suggested patients should "change physicians" when faced with non-empathetic doctors suffering from burnout. His cavalier resolution to our occupational struggle feels like a betrayal, to both his esteemed colleagues across the country and our profession. In my opinion, firing your physician is a risky proposition in light of the looming physician shortage. Burnout is an overwhelming sense of disillusionment a physician experiences when the practice of medicine holds no joy. It is not a psychological problem, yet can lead to a downward spiral of impairment. According to a recent article in US News, almost half of physicians have symptoms of burnout. Seven percent of physicians aged 29-65 contemplated suicide in the last year. These statistics are troubling on many levels.. Over half of current physicians state if given the opportunity to choose again, they would not choose ...
Back in 1986, there was an article published titled, "Administrative medicine: a new medical specialty?" The health care system has changed dramatically since then and the definition of "administrative medicine" continues to evolve as more physicians leave the bedside to pursue careers in business and administration.

Copying and pasting old, potentially out-of-date information into patients electronic health records (EHR) is common among physicians in the intensive care unit (ICU), according to a Reuters Health article based on a study that examined 2,068 electronic patient progress reports created by 62 residents and 11 attending physicians in a Cleveland hospital ICU.. Using plagiarism-detection software, the researchers analyzed 5 months worth of progress notes for 135 patients. They found that 82% of residents notes and 74% of attending physicians notes included 20% or more copied and pasted material from the patients records.. In their report, published in Critical Care Medicine, the authors did not examine what motivated physicians and residents to copy and paste, or whether the shortcut affected patient care, says Reuters. Nothing about a patient-length of stay, sex, age, race or ethnicity, what brought them into the ICU or how severely ill they were-affected how often a physician copied ...

For physicians with substance dependence, the average period of testing was 47 months."2. Dealing with relapse. "Relapses . . . were usually addressed by a combination of increased intensity of care and monitoring and by immediately informing family and colleagues of the physician to enlist their support in promoting compliance ...
Richard Kravitz, UC Davis professor of internal medicine, has been named to a newly formed independent commission that will assess how physicians are paid.
Rachel F. Groman Health Policy Associate, American College of Physicians October 18, 2004 Response to Letters to the Editor To the Editor, In response to Dr. M.E. Nassers comments on the American College of Physicians (ACP) position paper, ACP views the elimination of disparities in health care as one of many important steps needed to decrease the number of the uninsured and increase access to quality health care. ACP has developed a framework to provide health coverage for all lower-income Americans as a first step toward providing coverage for all.(1) To control rising out-of-pocket expenses, ACP advocates for reforms that will offer physicians the support needed to adopt health information technology, increase physician-patient time, and improve patient care.(2) Finally, ACP has developed policies to revitalize the profession of internal medicine and ensure an adequate supply of physicians in the specialties of internal medicine.(3) ACP realizes that uninsurance is a problem that affects ...

Patients are thinking about their own mortality the moment theyre given a life-threatening diagnosis. Often the doctor is trying to protect the patient, and ironically the patient is trying to protect the doctor. Usually both parties know that the disease is serious.. I usually provide a care map or plan with clear lefts and rights. I let people know that I have a certain number of tools in my toolbox but at some point those tools will no longer be effective and the disease will become more difficult to control. I try to focus on the "disease" rather than the "fight" because basically even with all of our best efforts, some of these diseases are not curable. This isnt the fault of the patient or the physician.. I think many patients are actually glad when physicians broach the topic of end of life. It removes some of the anxiety and creates a partnership where the patients knows they have a physician who will take care of them both in good times and hard times. It also opens up the ability for ...

This study investigated knowledge of, attitudes towards, familiarity with, frequency of being asked for prescriptions for, and comfort levels with prescribing CE drugs among 832 primary care physicians in Germany. The study showed an especially high knowledge level regarding CE among the participating subjects with MPH being the most widely known substance for CE. In contrast to this high knowledge level, only 5.3% of the physicians stated that they were very familiar with CE, and 43.5% described themselves as being not familiar with the subject. 40.8% of the surveyed primary care physicians had been asked for a prescription for CE during the last year followed by 19.0% which had been asked during the last month and 7.0% during the last week. Comfort levels to prescribe CE drugs are low among the surveyed physicians and significantly lower than to prescribe sildenafil (Viagra®). Another main finding is that comfort levels to prescribe a CE drug are mainly affected by the age of the asking ...

Published by Swan & Horne. Given the thirty-year history of false dawns since 1889, it is not surprising that the reports about insulin from Toronto were greeted with scepticism, especially in Europe. It is said that Naunyn wrote to Minkowski telling him not to believe a word of it as it was another case of American bluff! However the imprimatur of the North American scientific community was given at a meeting of the Association of American Physicians on 3 May 1922, when Macleod presented the clinical results. No physician present seemed to doubt them and Rollin Woodyatt moved that the association give a standing vote of appreciation to Macleod and his associates. Joslin could not remember such an action in the twenty years he had been involved with the society. Insulin was first supplied to American physicians in August 1922 and their experiences were published in a special edition of Allens Journal of Metabolic Research; this did not come out until 1923.

Sometimes physicians can also treat a problem during an angiogram. For instance, your physician may dissolve a clot that he or she discovers during the test. A physician may also perform an angioplasty and stenting procedure to clear blocked arteries during an angiogram, depending on the location and extent of the blockage. An angiogram can also help your physician plan operations to repair the arteries for more extensive problems.. How do I prepare?. Your physician will perform blood tests to determine your bloods ability to clot and to assess your kidney function. Based on the test results, your physician may instruct you to stop taking aspirin or other drugs that prevent clotting. Your physician will also tell you which medications you should continue to take. Usually your physician will ask you not to eat or drink anything within 6 hours of your angiogram. Because you shouldnt drive after an angiogram, you should arrange for a ride home.. Am I at risk for complications?. Blood clotting ...
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 ...

This week, CMS released a new Virtual Groups Toolkit to help physicians and practices form virtual groups for participation in MIPS for 2018. This option allows multiple practices or solo practitioners to aggregate their performance data and receive a group score and payment adjustment. A virtual group may consist of a combination of two or more Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs). Solo practitioners and groups with 10 or fewer eligible clinicians may form virtual groups. There is no limit to how many individual TINs join together to become a virtual group, but none of the individual TINs in the virtual group may exceed 10 eligible clinicians. Physicians and practices intending to form a virtual group must complete CMS election process by December 31, 2017. Additional details on forming a virtual group are available on ASCRS website.. CMS new Virtual Group Toolkit includes:. ...
In a value-based world where physicians performances are continuously measured and compared by payers, accurate and detailed documentation is essential.
