Physicians' response to abnormal results of routine urinalysis. (1/3874)

To determine the clinical usefulness of routine urinalysis, the records of 400 patients were examined for results of the first urinalysis following admission to hospital, and the attending physician's response to abnormal findings was evaluated. Results were abnormal for 116 patients (29.0%); there were 22 (5.5% of total urinalyses) abnormalities of chemical constituents (protein, glucose or bilirubin was present) only, 56 (14.0%) of sediment only and 38 (9.5%) of both chemical constituents and sediment. The attending physician did not respond to abnormal results in 50.9% of the 116 instances.  (+info)

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 ...
Generational and gender differences within the national physician pool will exacerbate Canadas shortage of doctors, an Ottawa psychiatrist says.. Health Canada has estimated therell be a shortfall of nearly 6000 physicians by 2010 but that total might well double after factoring in productivity differences among the current 4 cohorts of physicians, University of Ottawa Associate Professor of psychiatry Derek Puddester told the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in late September.. Joining a national chorus of calls for the establishment of a mechanism to develop a pan-Canadian health humanresources strategy, the college called for a national planning institute. Others, like Task Force Two, have called for a national agency (CMAJ 2006;174[13]:1827-28).. Puddester later told CMAJ that national physician workforce projections must incorporate variations in productivity between cohorts, particularly as younger doctors are demanding more work-life balance and are less willing to ...
Letting your children play physician when theyre youthful is a great way to have them accustomed to visiting a physician when its time to allow them to have a trip. It may be frightening as a 4 or 6 years old to visit the physician the very first time. Allowing them to have fun with physician outfits could make them convenient.. First you need to go to your local Halloween or costume store since this is a good option to locate physician outfits. After you have selected a dress-up costume then you need to set a while aside so your kids can also enjoy playing physician together. It can help these to t be afraid once they visit the physician.. Next, be sure to speak to your children about visiting the physician and explain the objective of a physician. You need to keep the kids minds comfortable because visiting the physician could be a frightening factor on their behalf. Should you inform them that its Alright to be frightened but listed here are the advantages of going to the physician then ...

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 ...
Objectives: Pulmonary function tests are a necessary and applicable method in the practice of family medicine. Our aim in this study was to determine the utilization rates of spirometry or peak-flow meter devices among family physicians who work in Turkey and the factors that influence this usage. Materials and Methods: This descriptive study included physicians working in the family medicine system in Turkey. Surveys were sent to physicians via e-mail. When a sufficient number of responses(n=380) were obtained in two months (May 2018-July 2018), the study was terminated. Results: Among the responding physicians, 81.50% (n=310) had a peak-flow meter and 1.50% (n=59) had a spirometer, while 11% (n=42) of the physicians had neither of these devices. On the other hand, 66.30% (n=252) of the physicians stated that they did not use the spirometer or peak-flow meter, 6.60% (n=25) used the peak-flow meter, and 3.70%(n=14) used the spirometer. When asked about the reasons for not using the existing ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
Who is in the better position to evaluate, the treating physician or an independent medical examination (IME) physician? A treating physician has a patient-advocate role because he or she has a doctor-patient relationship with the patient/claimant. Unlike the treating physician, an IME physician does not have a doctor-patient relationship, and can, therefore, provide an impartial evaluation necessary to assess the extent to which the patient/claimant is impaired or disabled from functional activities of daily living. ...
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. In 2009, Dr. Arthur Lazarus, a board member of the American College of Physician Executives, published a paper titled, Professional and career issues in administrative medicine. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Physicians participatory decision-making and quality of diabetes care processes and outcomes. T2 - Results from the triad study. AU - Heisler, M.. AU - Tierney, E.. AU - Ackermann, R.

N2 - Objectives: In participatory decision-making (PDM), physicians actively engage patients in treatment and other care decisions. Patients who report that their physicians engage in PDM have better disease self-management and health outcomes. We examined whether physicians diabetes-specific treatment PDM preferences as well as their self-reported practices are associated with the quality of diabetes care their patients receive. Methods: 2003 cross-sectional survey and medical record review of a random sample of diabetes patients (n = 4198) in 10 US health plans across the country and their physicians (n = 1217). We ...
This study demonstrates that participatory work design for hospital physicians is a promising intervention for improving working conditions and promoting patient quality of care.
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 ...
NOQ REPORT) - When you visit your physician, you hope to be given unbiased information that will best support your health - nothing less, nothing more. If a physician is unable to speak freely, this independent relationship between doctor and patient ceases to exist. In the past, illegal marketing, gifts and bribes from drug companies were frontrunners in eroding doctors integrity - and patients trust in them.. Now, with censorship in the name of COVID-19 ramping up to unprecedented levels, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), which regulates the practice of medicine in Ontario, has issued a statement prohibiting physicians from making comments or providing advice that goes against the official narrative.. Actor Clifton Duncan shared the Orwellian message on Twitter, urging his followers to Read this. Now. And then share it as much as you can. Because, equally as disturbing as the notion of publicly dictating to physicians what theyre allowed to say, is the fact that, ...

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 ...

Many U.S. communities face difficulties attracting physicians. To address this problem, states and federal agencies have turned to foreign physicians who have just completed graduate medical education in the United States under J-1 visas. Ordinarily, these physicians must return home after completing their programs, but this requirement can be waived at the request of a state or federal agency if the physician agrees to practice in an underserved area. In 1996, GAO reported that J-1 visa waivers had become a major source of physicians for underserved areas but were not well coordinated with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) programs for addressing physician shortages. GAO was asked to examine (1) the number of waivers requested by states and federal agencies; (2) waiver physicians practice specialties, settings, and locations; and (3) the extent to which waiver physicians are accounted for in HHSs efforts to address physician shortages.
As the new generation of physicians are entering in medical profession & practices, the demand for employment opportunities is growing at a fast pace. Even hospitals and other medical facilities are also coming up with exciting employment options for physician jobs in order to achieve growth targets and reputational objectives.

National and international studies in recent years have revealed that a significant number of physicians working in the field of patient care are not satisfied with their job and the associated working conditions [1-3]. A survey conducted in the US, for example, demonstrated this dissatisfaction in revealing that up to 40% of the physicians practicing in hospitals would not take up this profession again. Even a higher portion of the questioned physicians stated that they prevented their children from becoming a physician [4]. The workload of physicians proves to be one of the causes for the situation described. This fact is shown by different North American and European studies [5-10]. Also, the working conditions of clinicians in Germany have changed significantly in recent years. The number of patients in German hospitals has increased from approximately 14 million in 1990 to approximately 17 million in 2004. During the same period, however, the average length of stay has fallen from 14.7 days ...

PY - 2020/4/1. Y1 - 2020/4/1. N2 - Background: Studies suggest that black patients have better interactions, on average, with physicians of their own race. Whether this reflects greater cultural competence in race-concordant relationships, or other effects of race unrelated to physician behavior, is unclear. It is also unclear if physician race influences patient decision-making. Objective: To determine whether physician race affects patients ratings of physicians and decision-making, independent of physician behavior.

The 2008 Health Tracking Physician Survey (HTPS) is the successor to the Community Tracking Study (CTS) Physician Surveys which were conducted in 1996-1997 (ICPSR 2597), 1998-1999 (ICPSR 3267), 2000-2001 (ICPSR 3820), and 2004-2005 (ICPSR 4584). Unlike the previous surveys, HTPS does not have the community focus intrinsic to CTS. Whereas the CTS design focused on 60 nationally representative communities with sample sizes large enough to draw conclusions about health system change in 12 communities, the HTPS design is a national sample not aimed at measuring change within communities. Hence, Community was dropped from the study title. Administered to a nationally representative sample of United States physicians providing direct patient care, HTPS collected information on physician characteristics and specialty distribution; career satisfaction; practice arrangements and ownership; financial interest in medical equipment and hospitals; and physician time allocation, including hours worked, ...

Physician Assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine in collaboration with their physician partners. As part of their comprehensive responsibilities, they conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, provide counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions. Physician assistants have a close working relationship with physicians. They are educated in the medical model designed to complement physician training. Within the physician-PA relationship, physician assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision-making and provide a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. A PAs practice may also include education, research, and administrative services. This Program seeks to prepare exceptional physician assistants to practice as an integral part of the health care team. Miami Dade College has a distinguished history in contributing talented health care providers to the health care industry both ...
Background: Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for upper acute respiratory tract infections (ARI) in the emergency department. To reduce inappropriate overprescribing, it is necessary to understand factors influencing physicians decisions to prescribe antibiotics. Objective: Analyze the judgment policies of emergency physicians to determine factors predicting antibiotic use. Design: Paper case vignette study. Participants: 104 emergency physicians from Wisconsin. Measurements: We used judgment analysis to derive the policies of 104 emergency physicians from their responses to 20 case vignettes. We designed the cases such that each physicians use of clinical findings and patient factors could be inferred from the decisions they made about each case. Findings were compared to primary care practitioners (PCPs) in Colorado responding to the same paper cases to examine differences in factors influencing prescribing among the two groups. Results: The emergency physicians said they would prescribe an

Physicians who follow preventive health measures are more likely to have patients who follow preventive health measures, according to a Canadian Medical Association Journal study cited in the April 8 Medscape News Today.. The study included 1,488 physicians and their 1,886,791 adult patients. The authors examined 8 indicators, such as flu vaccination and mammograms, and found that for all indicators, patients were more likely to undergo preventive practices if their physicians had undergone the same practices (P , .05). The authors found a stronger relationship between similar preventive practices than dissimilar ones; for example, patients of physicians who did and physicians who did not receive the flu vaccine had identical mammography rates.. In their conclusion, the authors state, Our findings suggest that there is room for improvement in some physicians preventive practices (particularly around screening and vaccination) and that improving the health of physicians could improve outcomes ...

Imagine that all of our patients are invited to attend a cultural competence workshop called Understanding the Medical Culture, where they will learn how the strange and mysterious environment of medical practice affects physicians, so that their otherwise incomprehensible behavior seems at least somewhat understandable. They will be offered handy tips that would allow them to predict physicians behavior, such as the following:. • Physicians always want to be in control and typically interrupt patients after they have spoken for about 18 seconds.. •Physicians believe in always doing something, even if there is little scientific basis for it-especially if it is well-reimbursed.. • All physicians take Wednesday afternoons off to play golf.. This imaginative exercise should remind us of two important points. First, as physicians, we bring our culture (or cultures) to the clinic just as much as patients bring theirs. As was taught nearly 30 years ago,1 and as we have been reminded more ...
Physician Assistant (aka: Physician Associate) The physician assistant role, legally associated with a supervising physician, has allowed PAs to perform tasks previously only performed by doctors: history taking, physical examination, diagnosis, and patient management. Numerous studies have documented the ability of PAs to provide high-quality health care, comparable to that of a physician, for about 80% of the conditions seen in primary care settings. The physician assistant is prepared, both academically and clinically, to provide health care services with the direction and responsible supervision of a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Osteopathy (DO). PA functions include performing diagnostic, therapeutic, preventive, and health maintenance services.

Background and ObjectivesAlcohol use disorders (AUDs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Despite the NIAAAs recommendations that medications be considered for patients with alcohol dependence, the mainstay of treatment has been counseling. We designed a survey to assess the treatment practices of Psychiatrists and Family Medicine (FM) physicians, in an effort to identify barriers to the use of pharmacotherapy and develop strategies to increase physician knowledge and utilization of these medications.MethodsAn anonymous online survey was sent to FM physicians and Psychiatrists nationwide. The survey collected demographic information and assessed prescription of medications in treating AUDs, including FDA-approved medications and other medications used off-label for this purpose. We also examined factors that would lead to an increase in AUDs pharmacotherapy.ResultsA total of 491 surveys were completed, with 475 responses included in the final analyses. 45.5% of participants were
Downloadable! Physicians treatment decisions determine the level of health care spending to a large extent. The analysis of physician agency describes how doctors trade off their own and their patients benefits, with a third party (such as the collective of insured individuals or the taxpayers) bearing the costs. Professional norms are viewed as restraining physicians self-interest and as introducing altruism towards the patient. We present a controlled experiment that analyzes the impact of professional norms on prospective physicians trade-offs between her own profits, the patients benefits, and the payers expenses for medical care. We find that professional norms derived from the Hippocratic tradition shift weight to the patient in the physicians decisions while decreasing his self-interest and efficiency concerns.
Extant research suggests that there is a strong social component to Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) adoption since professional networks amongst physicians are strongly associated with their attitudes towards EBM. Despite this evidence, it is still unknown whether individual attitudes to use scientific evidence in clinical decision-making influence the position that physicians hold in their professional network. This paper explores how physicians attitudes towards EBM is related to the network position they occupy within healthcare organizations. Data pertain to a sample of Italian physicians, whose professional network relationships, demographics and work-profile characteristics were collected. A social network analysis was performed to capture the structural importance of physicians in the collaboration network by the means of a core-periphery analysis and the computation of network centrality indicators. Then, regression analysis was used to test the association between the network position of
This paper introduces a concept called demand-induced supply that reflects the excess supply of services due to an increase in demand initiated by patients. We examine its association with the proportion of information-savvy patients in physicians practice. Using data from a national representative physician survey, we apply latent class models to analyze this association. Our analyses categorize physicians into three types according to the frequency with which they provided additional medical services at their patients requests: frequent, occasional, and rare. The proportion of information-savvy patients is significantly and positively correlated with demand-induced supply for the frequent or occasional type, but not among physicians in the rare type. Efforts to contain healthcare costs through utilization control need to recognize the pattern of responses from physicians who treat an increasing number of information-savvy patients.

In the present study, the overall alert override rate was 65.3 %, which is compatible with override rates reported in previous studies between 49 % and 96 % [15]. One study reported an overall acceptance rate of only 8.5 %; however, most of the alerts were overridden (91.5 %). Regarding the recognition of DDIs in that study, physicians were aware of 82.0 % of the DDIs, were unaware of 15.9 %, and ignored 2.1 % of the alerts [18]. The present study has three important differences from previous studies. First, in order to override alerts, physicians had to contact pharmacists to obtain passwords, which were randomly assigned and changed daily. When physicians see alerts on the screen, they may intentionally or unintentionally ignore them and click the continue or ignore button. In the computerized DIAS in our hospital, the password system prevents physicians from prescribing contraindicated drug pairs carelessly. Therefore, physicians who overrode alerts and prescribed all 111 contraindicated ...
The results of our study are consistent with previously published reports, which found that more than 60% of very high-risk patients and over 45% of high-risk patients did not attain their LDL-C goals, according to the 2007 Chinese lipid management guidelines, after at least 3 months of lipid-lowering treatment [10]. We found that physicians knowledge of guideline-recommended LDL-C target goals significantly correlated with patients LDL-C target goal achievement in China. Physicians knowledge varied depending on the hospital level, medical specialty, professional status, and geographic region. Working in a tier 1 or tier 2 hospital, being a resident physician, and specializing in neurology, endocrinology, or internal medicine were independent risk factors for lower LDL-C target goal achievement. Our results indicate that physician knowledge and characteristics affect the quality of lipid management in China, and more attention should be paid to this fact. Previous studies have suggested that ...
