Computer use by general practitioners in Scotland. (1/5680)

BACKGROUND: Despite the widespread adoption by general practitioners (GPs) of desktop computers, there has been very little evaluation of the way in which the computer is actually used during consultations and the way in which it affects patient satisfaction. AIM: To ascertain the extent to which the computer is used in the consultation and to investigate the possible relationship between computer use and patient satisfaction. METHOD: Six GPs completed a short questionnaire about the extent to which they use the computer during surgeries. Eighty-four consultations from the surgeries of these GPs were video recorded. Patient satisfaction data on these 84 patients were collected at the time of the surgery using the previously validated Consultation Satisfaction Questionnaire. RESULTS: All six GPs stated that they usually used the computer during consultations. However, video observation revealed that the computer was used in just 51% of surgeries. The proportion of time that the computer was used for varied from 0.03 to 0.4, with a mean value of 0.12. The commonest function for which the computer was used was prescribing. The consultations in which the computer was used (CU) were on average 148 seconds longer than the non-computerized consultations (NCU). There was no difference in patient satisfaction between the two groups. CONCLUSION: Despite this group of GPs having a self-declared interest in the use of computers, the extent to which the computer was used was much lower than expected from the GPs' self-reported use. This may be partly explained by the fact that using the computer takes up valuable time within the consultation and does not appear to contribute to patient satisfaction. If desktop computers are to be used to their full potential in general practice, more work is required to evaluate their impact on the consultation process itself.  (+info)

Relationship between practice counselling and referral to outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology. (2/5680)

BACKGROUND: Although reduction in the use of secondary care mental health services is a suggested benefit of counselling in general practice, there has been little empirical investigation of this relationship. AIM: To investigate the relationship between the provision of counselling in general practice and the use of outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology services across a geographical area. METHOD: Information on referrals to outpatient psychiatry and clinical psychology from all general practices in the London Borough of Islington over one year (October 1993 to September 1994) was collected from the routine information systems of the main hospital departments serving this area. Referral rates per 1000 practice population were compared for practices with and without a practice-based counsellor. RESULTS: Fifteen (35%) of the 43 practices had a counsellor based in the practice. The median referral rate to clinical psychology was higher in practices with a counsellor (4.1 per 1000) than in practices without a counsellor (0.8 per 1000). There was no relationship between the provision of practice counselling and median referral rates to outpatient psychiatry (1.8 per 1000 with a counsellor, 1.7 per 1000 without a counsellor). CONCLUSION: Provision of practice counselling in the study was associated with higher referral rates to clinical psychology and no difference in referral rates to outpatient psychiatry. This is in contrast to the hypothesis that counselling reduces the use of secondary care mental health services.  (+info)

Late referral of end-stage renal failure. (3/5680)

We studied all new patients accepted for renal replacement therapy (RRT) in one unit from 1/1/96 to 31/12/97 (n = 198), to establish time from nephrology referral to RRT, evidence of renal disease prior to referral and the adequacy of renal management prior to referral. Sixty four (32.3%, late referral group) required RRT within 12 weeks of referral. Fifty-nine (29.8%) had recognizable signs of chronic renal failure > 26 weeks prior to referral. Patients starting RRT soon after referral were hospitalized for significantly longer on starting RRT (RRT within 12 weeks of referral, median hospitalization 25.0 days (n = 64); RRT > 12 weeks after referral, median 9.7 days (n = 126), (p < 0.001)). Observed survival at 1 year was 68.3% overall, with 1-year survival of the late referral and early referral groups being 60.5% and 72.5%, respectively (p = NS). Hypertension was found in 159 patients (80.3%): 46 (28.9%) were started on antihypertensive medication following referral, while a further 28 (17.6%) were started on additional antihypertensives. Of the diabetic population (n = 78), only 26 (33.3%) were on an angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) at referral. Many patients are referred late for dialysis despite early signs of renal failure, and the pre-referral management of many of the patients, as evidenced by the treatment of hypertension and use of ACEI in diabetics, is less than optimal.  (+info)

Assessment of swallowing and referral to speech and language therapists in acute stroke. (4/5680)

The best clinical assessment of swallowing following acute stroke, in order to decide whether to refer a patient to a speech and language therapist (SLT), is uncertain. Independently of the managing clinical team, we prospectively investigated 115 patients (51 male) with acute stroke, mean age 75 years (range 24-94) within 72 h of admission, using a questionnaire, structured examination and timed water swallowing test. Outcome variables included referral to and intervention by a speech and language therapist (SLT), dietary modification, respiratory complications and death. Of those patients in whom an SLT recommended intervention, 97% were detected by an abnormal quantitative water swallowing test; specificity was 69%. An SLT was very unlikely to recommend any intervention if the test was normal. Inability to perform a water test and/or abnormality of the test was associated with significantly increased relative risks of death, chest infection and dietary modification. A timed water swallowing test can be a useful test of swallowing and may be used to screen patients for referral to a speech and language therapist after acute stroke.  (+info)

The identification of agreed criteria for referral following the dental inspection of children in the school setting. (5/5680)

AIM: To clarify the function of the school based dental inspection. OBJECTIVE: For representatives of the Community Dental Service, General Dental Service and Hospital Dental Service to identify an agreed set of criteria for the referral of children following school dental inspection. DESIGN: Qualitative research methodology used to establish a consensus for the inclusion of referral criteria following dental screening. SETTING: Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. MATERIALS: A Delphi technique was used to establish a consensus amongst the study participants on the inclusion of nine possible criteria for referral following dental screening. All participants scored each criterion in the range 1-9, with a score of 1 indicating that referral of individuals with the condition should definitely not take place, and a score of 9 indicating referral should definitely take place. Referral criteria were accepted only if they achieved a group median score of 7 or more, with an interquartile range of three scale points, with the lower value being no less than 7. RESULTS: Four of the nine possible criteria met the agreed group standard for inclusion: 'Sepsis', 'Caries in the secondary dentition', 'Overjet > 10 mm', and 'Registered & caries in the permanent dentition'. CONCLUSION: It is possible to agree clear criteria for the referral of children following the school dental inspection.  (+info)

Descriptive study of cooperative language in primary care consultations by male and female doctors. (6/5680)

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.

We are at a time when reform in the special medical examination program in keeping with the changing times is desperately needed because the common perception of workers, employers, and medical examination facilities is "special medical examination is merely ritualistic and unproductive." Therefore, we have tried to set forth the basic structure for reforming the special medical examination program by taking a close look at the management status of the current program and analyzing its problems. The specifics of the special medical examination program reform proposal consist of three parts such as the types, health evaluation based on occupational medicine, and the interval, subject selection, items and procedure. Pre-placement medical examination and non-periodic medical examinations-as-necessary are introduced newly. Health evaluation based on occupational medicine consists of classification of health status, evaluation of work suitability, and post-examination measure. Details regarding the medical examination interval, subject selection, items and procedure were changed.  (+info)

Young women taking isotretinoin still conceive. Role of physicians in preventing disaster. (8/5680)

QUESTION: One of my adolescent patients was prescribed isotretinoin for severe acne by a dermatologist. I was shocked to discover she does not use any means of contraception. The dermatologist insists he told her about the need for contraception. How can we do better? ANSWER: Clearly this dermatologist, like many of his colleagues, does not comply with the Pregnancy Prevention Program. Until physicians become more aware of this program, babies will continue to be born with embryopathy due to isotretinoin.  (+info)

The recommended research should aim to identify differences in effectiveness among groups, based on characteristics such as socioeconomic status, age, gender and ethnicity. It should also focus on exercise referral schemes that seek to improve the health of sedentary or inactive adults with an existing health condition - or other factors that put them at increased risk of developing a health condition. The research recommendation does not cover people for whom exercise referral schemes are not recommended. It assumes that exercise referral schemes benefit health by helping people to be more physically active. Changes in physical activity levels should, therefore, be the primary outcome measured, ideally at 1 year and beyond. The potential health benefit of someone doing some physical activity, albeit below current UK physical activity guidelines rather than none at all, should be taken into account. (See the Department of Healths Start active, stay active.) If other outcomes or determinants of ...

Patient Referral Strategies. All patients to your practice deserve a warm welcome, but there is one type of patient who is worth their weight in gold: the one referred by another current happy patient. You know your patients are pleased with your work, so it might be time to think about rewarded them when they spread the good news.. Put simply, a patient referral program utilizes your existing patient base to recruit new business: Implementing it can be as easy as asking to be recommended to a friend or family member in need of care. If soliciting current patients for a referral sounds a little scary, its not-but it does take a little planning, structure, and a thorough understanding of exactly how patient referral programs work.. A patient referral program is a marketing system designed for health care providers who recognize that new patients are key to growing their practice. How these programs look and operate can vary widely depending on state laws that govern incentive-based marketing-but ...

This study evaluated the referral pattern of ASD to specialty care in our Autism Center. Our results showed that, in contrast to non-autistic patients, the majority of the ASD childrens specialist evaluations were reportedly non-physician initiated. The reasons for referral in ASD children were predominantly developmental delay or behavioral disorders.. The reason(s) for these differences in referral source for specialist evaluation for children with ASD in our Autism Center is not clear. The reason(s) families of children with ASD initiated specialty evaluations without involvement of their primary care physicians remain to be determined. Health insurance plans did not appear to affect the referral sources within our cohort. We did not systematically determine what ASD families did in their treatment seeking process. It is possible that with the widely available medical information in the internet, parents may choose to bypass the cumbersome health care system and generate a specialty ...

What Is Psychodiagnostic Testing? What is the difference between a psychodiagnostic assessment and a psychiatric consultation?. A psychiatric consultation consists of a thorough clinical interview, review of records, and observation of the patients behavior by a psychiatrist or psychologist. For many psychiatric concerns, this is the most appropriate referral and connects the patient with a mental health provider. Psychodiagnostic testing is a specialized diagnostic procedure that identifies and quantifies degrees of psychopathology. In contrast to a psychiatric consultation, it uses written, oral and projective instruments to evaluate a patients mental processes and to assess how their thinking and emotions are likely to impact their behavior. Therefore, psychodiagnostic testing provides objective data on a patients psychological functioning and is a useful tool for clarifying confusing clinical presentations.. How would psychodiagnostic testing help my patients? Psychodiagnostic testing ...

Retrospective analysis of patients self-referred to comprehensive ophthalmology seeking second opinions Daniel Gologorsky1, Scott H Greenstein2 1Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, NH, USA; 2Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA Abstract: Patients choose to seek a second opinion in matters related to their health for a variety of reasons, and the total cost associated with these second opinion visits is estimated to be billions of dollars annually. Understanding the reasons behind second opinion self-referrals is key to improving patient satisfaction and reducing redundancy in delivered health care. This study represents a retrospective analysis of the records from a single provider at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) Comprehensive Ophthalmology Service in order to determine the various reasons that patients self-refer to an ophthalmology clinic seeking second opinions. A total of 174 patients presenting for a second
Background: Considering the importance of getting the right patient at the right location to maintain and optimize quality of life of inflammatory arthritis patients, appropriate referral by general practitioners is essential. This study aims to assess the effect and cost effectiveness of different referral strategies for inflammatory arthritis in primary care patients. Methods: This study follows a cluster randomized controlled trial design. General practitioners from primary care centers in Southwest-The Netherlands are randomly assigned to either one of the two strategic interventions for referring adult patients who are in the opinion of the general practitioner suspected of inflammatory arthritis: 1) Standardized digital referral algorithm based on existing referral models PEST, CaFaSpA and CARE; 2) Triage by a rheumatologist in the local primary care center. These interventions will be compared to a control group, e.g. usual care. The primary outcome is the percentage of patients diagnosed with

Background. Late nephrology referral has been associated with adverse outcomes among patients with end-stage renal disease; however, its relationship to mortality is unclear. We examined the impact of timing of nephrology care relative to initiation of dialysis on mortality after initiation of dialysis.. Methods. Data from the Dialysis Morbidity and Mortality Study - Wave II, a prospective study of incident dialysis patients, were used. Late referral (LR) was defined as first nephrology visit ,4 months and early referral (ER) as first nephrology visit ≥4 months prior to initiation of dialysis. Propensity scores (PS) were estimated using logistic regression to predict the probability that a given patient was LR. A Cox proportional hazards model was built to examine the association between timing of nephrology referral and mortality.. Results. The cohort was comprised of 2195 patients: 54% were males, 66% were Caucasians, 26% were African-Americans and 33% were referred late. A Cox proportional ...

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to Maxwell et als letter and their insightful comments regarding the delay to diagnosis in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). In their audit of patients with coexisting chronic back pain and acute anterior uveitis (AAU), it was noted that such patients are poorly evaluated for suspected SpA at primary-care level.1. Poor recognition and consequent late referral remains a major stumbling block towards overall success in axSpA. In our Dublin Uveitis Evaluation Tool (DUET) study, we also found that 62% of patients with undiagnosed SpA had previously consulted either their general practitioner (GP) or other allied health professionals with their backache but the diagnosis of SpA was not considered.2 The gatekeeper role of the GP cannot be underappreciated. However, variations in GP referral rates exist; indeed a 20-fold variation in GP referral rate has been reported.3 Clearly, the focus should be on efforts to increase the number of appropriate referrals, ...
The Clinical Psychologists Service Cluster exploresthe role of clinical psychologists, competence issues, ethical practice and supervisory practices to gain an understanding of the modern clinical psychologist.
GPs described a range of symptoms which would prompt them to consider MND as a diagnosis, with fasciculation being the most common, and speech-related symptoms least common. Other studies have reported that patients with bulbar onset have a shorter mean time from symptoms to diagnosis [5, 6]. It was interesting therefore that speech-related symptoms were least frequently mentioned as being associated with MND. The GP role was perceived to be onward referral following the recognition that something was not right, rather than attempting to make a diagnosis. However, if the onward referral was made to a non-MND service then delays were incurred, as non-MND secondary care services often did not identify MND. Many of our participants described frustration with referral pathways which inhibited selection of specialist services, with long waiting times for neurology appointments.. Participants described relying on knowledge from medical school, speaking to colleagues, or using websites to access ...
The basis for the substantial interhospital variation in preoperative medical consultation remains unclear. Differences in individual surgeons preferences may explain it in some part. However, we did not evaluate the impact of individual surgeons on consultation rates in the current study because of the analytical difficulties of comparing multiple surgeons nested within many different surgical specialties and hospitals. Thus, future studies should evaluate the influence of surgeons on consultation rates within a more homogenous group of surgical procedures (e.g. , major joint replacement). Nonetheless, there is likely an important effect of the individual hospital on consultation rates, as evidenced by the moderate positive correlation between hospital-specific consultation rates for dissimilar surgeries, namely major joint replacement versus colon resection procedures. It is unlikely that hospital-specific financial incentives to physicians were a major influence on hospital-level variation ...
Purpose: To identify the pattern and frequency of inpatient and emergency department ophthalmology consultations at a large tertiary care hospital.. Methods: A retrospective chart review of all inpatient ophthalmology consult notes from 6/1/2013 to 12/31/13 was conducted. Patient age, gender, consulting service, type of consultation (inpatient vs emergency department), chief complaint, visual acuity, and final diagnosis were recorded.. Results: There were a total of 299 consults seen. The average age of the patients was 46.75 years (range 2 days to 100 years). There were 162 males and 137 females. There were 156 inpatient consults and 143 emergency room consults. The most frequent consulting service was the emergency department (131 consults), followed by internal medicine (65). The most common chief complaint was blurry or decreased vision (49 consults), followed by trauma, eye pain, red eye, and baseline examination prior to starting ethambutol therapy. The most common diagnosis was orbital ...
Solicited consultations constitute a substantial workload for infectious disease (ID) specialists in the hospital setting. The objectives of this survey were to describe requesting physicians experiences regarding ID consultations. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in a university-affiliated hospital in France in 2009. All physicians were eligible (n = 530) and received a self-administered questionnaire. The main outcomes were reasons for request and opinion. Secondary outcomes were frequency of request and declared adherence to recommendations. The participation rate was 44.7% (237/530). Among the responders, 187 (79%) had solicited the ID consultation service within the previous year. Ninety-three percent of the responders (173/187) were satisfied with the ID consultation. The main reasons for requesting consultations were the need for therapeutic advice (93%), quality of care improvement (73%) and the rapidity of access (61%). ID consultations were requested several times a month by 52% (72/138

Most surveys show that patients are satisfied with the care they receive through general practice, but patients often say that their consultations are too short and that doctors do not use this time well.1 Studies about the length of consultations have investigated the effect of the characteristics of the doctors and the patients and the reason for the consultation on the length of consultation. The characteristics of doctors that have the most effect on consultation length are doctors age, sex, and attitude and the size of the doctors list of patients.1 Older doctors, women doctors, and doctors with positive attitudes to mental health problems tend to have longer consultations.2 - 5 The size of a doctors list is not an important determinant of consultation length, except when lists are extremely large or extremely small. 6 7 The patients age and social class are determinants of consultation length-the older the patient or the higher their social class, the longer the consultation.2 Doctors ...
Getting a second surgical opinion can fill an important emotional need as well as establishing medical needs and treatment goals. When a second opinion confirms initial findings, it can provide reassurance and feelings of acceptance for the patient, and may reduce anxiety and uncertainty.. From a cost-effectiveness point of view, second opinions can save health insurance providers money by establishing the certainty of a clinical need (or lack of need) for surgery, particularly when the diagnosis is a life-threatening.. Patients with a diagnosis of cancer may also benefit from a second-opinion pathology review of their biopsy material. A John Hopkins study reported that 1.4% of patients scheduled for cancer-related surgery at their facility were found to have been misdiagnosed when their tissue samples were reevaluated by a second pathologist. Similarly, a study published in the Annals of Surgical Oncology in 2002 found that a pathological second opinion of breast cancers changed the initial ...

The HEW committee was very impressed with PMIs high-grade equipment, professional staff, and most importantly, its established network with off-island radiology partners who provide a quick and accurate turnaround of scan results. In fact, the committee was pleased to learn that in urgent cases, PMI has the ability to get back scan results in at least two hours. PMIs 128-slice CT scanner, the only one on the island, is a non-invasive diagnostic machine that can detect tumors, cancers or coronary heart disease by producing sharp, three-dimensional, cross-sectional images of the body. The facility is also equipped to produce 4D sonograms and digital mammograms. During the visit, PMI informed the Committee that they are close to bringing in an MRI machine. The committee would like PMI to meet with the Medical Referral Services office to discuss available options that may help alleviate the costs borne by the government for patient referrals sent to Guam solely for CT and MRI scans. The HEW ...

There are a range of clearly defined clinical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of DR developed for eye specialists, however, there is little advice written for those providing primary health services for people with diabetes on how to screen for DR and when to refer patients for further investigation..

About 25% of HIV infected people do not know that they are infected. These people lack medical care that could prolong their lives and access to counseling services that could prevent further spread of HIV. With so many people unaware of their HIV status, there is a clear need for more readily available HIV counseling, testing, and referral services throughout the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine HIV testing in U.S. hospitals in which HIV infected patients make up at least 1% of the total patient population for that hospital. However, routine HIV testing in such hospitals is rarely carried out, which might be because the CDC has not specified who should perform routine HIV testing. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two different approaches to providing routine HIV counseling, testing, and referral services in an urban hospital emergency department setting. One approach will be led by an HIV counselor, and the other ...
A pioneering procedure that saved the life of a kitten with a rare and potentially fatal heart condition could transform the way similar cases are treated in future. In what is believed to be a world first for feline medicine, surgeons from North Downs Specialist Referrals in Surrey successfully performed keyhole surgery on a kitten with a double-chambered right ventricle - a rare condition - meaning it had a severe obstruction on the right side of the heart. Until now, the condition could only be corrected with open-heart surgery. Sylvie recuperating after the successful pioneering cutting balloon angioplasty operation. Image: North Downs Specialist Referrals. The procedure was performed by cardiologist João Loureiro, who believed the kitten was too frail to withstand open-heart surgery, so opted for a keyhole procedure that has historically only been used in dogs, on account of felines having such small hearts. To conduct the cutting balloon angioplasty, Mr Loureiro and fellow cardiology ...

  • ABSTRACT Consultation-liaison psychiatry has emerged as an important sub-specialty in the general hospital setting during recent years as a result of psychiatric acute wards moving into these hospitals. (
  • To effectively achieve this, consultation-liaison psychiatry must first establish its pertinence to other branches of medicine in the general hospital setting, and second, display adequately and reliably the magnitude and the impact of psychiatric morbidity and mortality in physically ill inpatients [1,3]. (
  • Both objectives are only achievable through reliable and adequate research in the field, which should not only investigate the pattern of referral and the compliance with psychiatrists' recommendations, but also assess the knowledge and attitude of both the hospital doctors and the patients, which are crucial determinants in referrals for psychiatric consultation [4]. (
  • Three closely related but distinct reasons might be responsible for this wide variability in results, the nature of the patient population under investigation, the knowledge of hospital doctors and their attitude towards psychiatry, and the attitude of the patients themselves towards psychiatric consultation in the context of their current physical illness [3,4,8,9]. (
