West Nile virus (WNV) is a vector-borne illness that can severely affect human health. After introduction on the East Coast in 1999, the virus quickly spread and became established across the continental United States. However, there have been significant variations in levels of human WNV incidence spatially and temporally. In order to quantify these variations, we used Kulldorffs spatial scan statistic and Anselins Local Morans I statistic to uncover spatial clustering of human WNV incidence at the county level in the continental United States from 2002-2008. These two methods were applied with varying analysis thresholds in order to evaluate sensitivity of clusters identified. The spatial scan and Local Morans I statistics revealed several consistent, important clusters or hot-spots with significant year-to-year variation. In 2002, before the pathogen had spread throughout the country, there were significant regional clusters in the upper Midwest and in Louisiana and Mississippi. The largest and

Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called the NEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as a stratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States and its territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. The sample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, and small ...

OBJECTIVES--To examine general practitioner consultations by demographic and socioeconomic variables and to derive a method of measuring the impact of relative deprivation on general practitioner workload. DESIGN--The study was based on general practitioner consultations reported in the general household surveys of 1983-7, covering a sample of 129,987 individuals in Great Britain. Odds ratios for general practitioner consultations were obtained for selected variables among children (0-15 years), men (16-64), women (16-64), and elderly people (greater than or equal to 65). These were then used to derive deprivation indices specific to electoral wards for use in general practice. SETTING--Great Britain, with particular findings illustrated by English electoral wards and the conurbations of London, Manchester, Merseyside, and the West Midlands. RESULTS--Council tenure increased the likelihood of consultation significantly in all four groups. Odds ratios were raised in children, men, and women with ...

Most ophthalmologists use the commercially available form of KenalogTM. A minority, however, choose to administer a preservative-free form that is usually prepared by a compounding pharmacy, a process that may introduce other risks. Compounding pharmacies must comply with Chapter 797 of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), which sets standards for the compounding, transportation, and storage of compounded sterile products (CSP). There is now a Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board, which can verify that the pharmacy is adhering to these standards. To ensure safe compounding and administration, ophthalmologists should ask the compounding pharmacy 1) to prepare the medication under aseptic conditions, 2) to confirm the dose and sterility, 3) to label each container or syringe with the strength, lot number, storage, and "beyond use" instructions, 4) to verify that it is licensed/registered in the state in 10 Narayanan, Raja et al.

What does a pediatric dentist do?. Pediatric dentistry offices are colorful, fun, and child-friendly. Dental phobias are often rooted in childhood, so it is essential that the child feel comfortable, safe, and trusting of the dentist from the outset.. The pediatric dentist focuses on several different forms of oral care:. Prevention - Tooth decay is the most prevalent childhood ailment. Fortunately, it is almost completely preventable. Aside from providing advice and guidance relating to home care, the pediatric dentist can apply sealants and fluoride treatments to protect tooth enamel and minimize the risk of cavities.. Early detection - Examinations, X-rays, and computer modeling allow the pediatric dentist to predict future oral problems. Examples include malocclusion (bad bite), attrition due to grinding (bruxism), and jaw irregularities. In some cases, optimal outcomes are best achieved by starting treatment early.. Treatment - Pediatric dentists offer a wide range of treatments. Aside from ...

AU - Wilson, Nicholas P.. AU - Johansson, Sonny L.. AU - Sterrett, Samuel P.. AU - Abrahams, Neil A.. PY - 2007/6/1. Y1 - 2007/6/1. N2 - Objectives: Completion of robotic radical prostatectomy compared with conventional open retropubic radical prostatectomy can result in different alterations in the prostatectomy specimens. One difference appears to be an increased incidence of benign glands at the margins, which has been associated with an increase in postoperative prostatic-specific antigen (PSA) levels. We compared the frequency and clinical significance of benign prostate glands at the surgical margins in radical prostatectomy specimens obtained by robotic versus open retropubic prostatectomy. Methods: We reviewed 38 consecutive prostatectomy specimens from patients with biopsy-proven prostate cancer. ...

The professional practice of behavior analysis is one domain of behavior analysis: the others being radical behaviorism, experimental analysis of behavior and applied behavior analysis. The professional practice of behavior analysis is the delivery of interventions to consumers that are guided by the principles of behaviorism and the research of both the experimental analysis of behavior and applied behavior analysis. Professional practice seeks maximum precision to change behavior most effectively in specific instances. Behavior analysts are mental health professionals and, in some states, may hold a license, certificate or registration as a behavior analyst. In other states, there are no laws governing their practice and, as such, the practice may be prohibited as falling under the practice definition of other mental health professionals. This is rapidly changing as Behavior Analysts are becoming more and more common. The professional practice of behavior analysis is a hybrid discipline with ...

Acamprosate has been shown to reduce drinking days in alcohol dependent patients and promote abstinence, with few reported side effects. A limitation of these studies, however, has been their lack of generalizability due to restrictive inclusion and exclusion criteria. Furthermore, most of the previous studies of acamprosate have been conducted in Europe, in a different treatment setting from the typical American Family Medicine center, where alcohol dependent patients are most likely to be first identified in the U.S.. The present study is designed to determine the efficacy of acamprosatefor alcohol dependence in a Family Medicine setting using minimal psychotherapeutic interventions-as would also likely occur in a primary care setting. The study will be a 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial comparing 666 mg acamprosate t.i.d. to placebo in patients at the UNC Family Medicine Center with alcohol dependence. Subjects will be seen by Family Medicine physicians and receive ...

Insurance denials are one of the major factors that affect a physicians revenue even though health reforms do address some issues faced by patients and physicians in dealing with insurance companies, the denial rate of claims has not significantly altered due to such reforms. These insurance denials are avoidable especially as they create problems for physicians and providers and delay or even eliminate the possibility of proper provider reimbursement. Dealing with insurance companies is tough enough for experienced physicians; it is even tougher for new physicians who have limited hands-on experience in such matters.. The reforms have played a significant role in reining in insurance companies and some of these policies may work but still remain to be fully tested. The survey conducted by The United States Department of Health and Human Services finds that the rate of denial is 19% but the denial rate increases with the age group of the patient. People who are older face more denials compared ...
The authors who recently reviewed the barriers that inhibit the implementation of hypertension management guidelines in Canada1 neglected to mention what might be one of the most important factors: the powerful influence of pharmaceutical manufacturers marketing campaigns on physician practice patterns.2 The freebie phenomenon was addressed in a news item in the same issue of CMAJ in which the review appeared.3 Flip through the pages of that particular issue and you will come across 5 glossy advertisements promoting angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors or AT1 receptor blockers in the treatment of hypertension. Clinical practice guidelines are reflected only in footnotes in tiny print stating that the drugs being advertised are indicated when treatment with diuretics or β-blockers is ineffective or not appropriate.. If the groups that create clinical practice guidelines are wondering how to influence physicians practices more effectively across the country, perhaps they should take a ...
The school nurse functions as a leader and the coordinator of the school health services team. The team may also include a school physician, licensed practical nurses, health aides and clerical staff, school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, and substance abuse counselors.

We again urge you to use your discretion to revise the calculation of physician expenditures and to support efforts in Congress to replace the SGR policy. Specifically, we do not think physician expenditures should include the cost of prescription drugs furnished incident to a physician s service. As you know, drugs administered in a physician s office are not paid for under the physician fee schedule; including them in the estimates of spending under the fee schedule holds physicians accountable for an expense that is largely outside their control, and one that is rising very rapidly. In addition, we believe that the estimate of physician expenditures should be adjusted to account for increased outlays related to new national coverage decisions. Coverage decisions that expand beneficiary access to advancements in medical diagnosis and treatment should be treated in a manner similar to changes in law and regulation that are expected to affect outlays for physicians services. In our view, there ...

Yes, he was guilty. But what about the other doctors who prescribed this for Jackson, or the fact that Jackson basically went shopping for a doctor whod prescribe whatever he wanted? The fact that Jackson was having to pay a doctor almost $2m a year suggests that he realised there would be rule-bending involved - no-one gets paid that for a straightforward physicians role, not even in the confused world of Michael Jackson.. I certainly believe Murray to be responsible for the timing of Jacksons death - if hed given better care or called the emergency services sooner, the King Of Crap Music would have survived a bit longer. But ultimately, this was only ever going to end one way, and Jacksons the only person to blame for the way he went out.. Posted 6 years ago ...

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to critically ill patients throughout the world, with rates as high as 60%.1 A major concern is the almost universal observation that 31 - 77% of these are inappropriate.1-5 The inappropriate use of antibiotics is associated with increased morbidity, mortality and cost, and is a major driver in the emergence of resistant pathogens. Antibiotic prescription practices in South African intensive care units (ICUs) have not been described in the public or private sectors. Apart from its economic implications, this information is relevant because of the emergence of extremely high levels of drug resistance among Gram-negative bacilli in South Africa.6. As a continuum of the National Critical Care Audit, the Critical Care Society of Southern Africa (CCSSA) undertook a 1-day prevalence study of infection as a first step to ascertain the national profile of sepsis among critically ill patients.7-11 One aspect of the study was to ascertain antibiotic prescription ...

In 2016 the European guidelines recommend different HCV genotypes of hepatitis C ...
Primary care physicians in Germany are essential participants in infectious disease surveillance through mandatory reporting. Feedback on such surveillance should reflect the needs and attitudes of these physicians. These issues were investigated in a questionnaire survey among 8,550 randomly sampled physicians in Germany in 2001. Of the 1,320 respondents, 59.3% claimed not to have received any feedback on infectious disease surveillance, and 3.7% perceived feedback as not important. Logistic regression analysis showed that physicians in the former East Germany were 2.2 times more likely to have received feedback than those in the former West Germany. Physicians preferred to receive occasional reports (e.g., in case of outbreaks, 31.6%) as opposed to actively having to search for constantly updated information on the Internet (7.8%). The preferred formats were fax (31.7%), mail (30.9%), and the official organ of the German Medical Association (Deutsches Arzteblatt) (30.5%). Feedback of surveillance data
Backgrounds: Women are older and have a lower incidence of ventricular fibrillation/pulseless ventricular tachycardia than men when rescuers encounter a victim of sudden adult cardiac arrest. We assessed the hypothesis that the revision of American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care has a major impact on sex differences of improved survival of patients (pts) with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) through a prehospital defibrillation procedure. Methods and Results:From January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2010, we conducted a prospective, population-based, observational study involving consecutive OHCA pts in whom resuscitation was attempted by emergency responders across Japan. A total of 670,313 pts were included in the present study and 118,777 pts had a cardiac arrest witnessed by bystanders. Among these pts, the AHA guidelines (G)2005 were aimed at 63,138 pts, G2000 were aimed at 17,836 pts, and the remaining ...

On November 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final 2013 Medicare physician fee schedule rule, which sets the therapy cap amount on outpatient therapy services for 2013 at $1,900; updates 2013 payment amounts for physicians, physical therapists, and other health care professionals; and revises other payment policies. The therapy cap exceptions process will expire on December 31 unless Congress acts to extend it. Additional policies that will impact physical therapists include implementation of new functional status codes for reporting therapy services and updates to the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS).. The final rule includes a 26.5% across-the-board reduction to Medicare payment rates for physicians, physical therapists, and other professionals due to the flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula. Since 2003, Congress had enacted legislation preventing the reduction every year. CMS announces that it is "committed to fixing the SGR update ...
Context: Migraine headache is highly prevalent in the United States, resulting in large healthcare expenditures.. Objective: To determine whether the use of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) at an osteopathic family practice residency clinic affected the cost of treating patients with migraine headache, compared with non-OMT care at the osteopathic clinic and care at an allopathic family practice residency clinic.. Methods: A retrospective review of electronic medical records from patients treated for migraine at two residency clinics within the Florida Hospital organization from July 1, 2002, to June 30, 2007. One of the clinics was osteopathic and offered OMT services, and the other clinic was allopathic and did not offer OMT. All costs compiled during the office visits and costs of prescribed medications were tabulated for each patient. Patients pain-severity ratings, as reported in office visits in 2006 and 2007, were also tabulated.. Results: Electronic medical records from 631 ...
to the editor: Our practice cares for all its hospitalized patients (adults and children), so I have been dismayed that many family physicians and generalists have given up hospital-based care. This movement has occurred despite high-quality evidence demonstrating no improvement in outcomes or cost savings from specialists in hospital medicine. I was pleased to read the "Tips from Other Journals" by Dr. Kripke that reviewed the study from the New England Journal of Medicine.1 This study showed that family physicians provide inpatient care on par or superior to that of general internists and hospitalists.1 In this study, the small reduction in length of stay (0.4 days) in patients cared for by hospitalists actually translated to zero cost improvement compared with hospitalized patients cared for by family physicians. Surprisingly, the closing line in that study stated that "there remains a need to understand how hospitalist systems should be structured in order to improve the quality and outcomes ...

Simply key a few words into a search engine and youll be bombarded with links to numerous health web sites. These days, all it takes is a computer with internet access and youve got a wealth of health information at your fingertips. The hard part is deciding whether that information can be trusted.. "The world wide web is well-named after its biological counterpart, the spider web," said Glenn Nemec, a Monticello family physician and member of the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians. "The spider has to sift through dust, leaves and grass to get his meal. When it comes to medical information on the web, we humans have the same problem. We need to sort through a lot of junk to get stuff fit for consumption.". So how does the average person figure out whats good or bad information? Family physicians will tell you there is no foolproof way to do it without the help of your doctor - so dont ...

During the past years it has been reported that musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) have increased in working life. The body region with the highest prevalence of reported pain is the neck region. Several studies show that MSD in the neck region varies between 20-68% among dentists and dental hygienists. The dental personnel work with a limited field of vision and space, which often results in an unnatural work posture. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of neck pain in dentists and dental hygienists working in the county of Västra Götaland, Sweden and to explore possible work-related and individual risk factors. The study was based on a questionnaire, which was sent out to all dentists and dental hygienists (n = 473) who worked at Folktandvården (response rate 60%). The overall prevalence of neck pain (neck pain every day the past month) was 23%. Female dentists and dental hygienists had an increased risk of neck pain compared to male dentists (OR 2.68, 95% CI 1.22 - 6.75). ...
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
Background: Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) are thought to be an effective tool in improving efficiency and outcomes of clinical practice. Physicians adherence to guidelines is reported to be poor. We evaluated the relationship between generalizability of guidelines on hypertension and physicians adherence to guidelines recommendations for pharmacological treatment. Methods: We used the Sixth Joint National Committees (JNC VI) guidelines on hypertension to evaluate our hypothesis. We evaluated the evidence from controlled clinical trials on which the JNC VI bases its recommendation, and compared the population enrolled in those trials with the American hypertensive population. Data on this population came from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey III. Results: Twenty-three percent of the NHANES population had a diagnosis of hypertension, 11% had hypertension requiring drug treatment according to the JNC VI. Only half of the population requiring treatment would have been ...
General practitioners increasingly use point-of-care ultrasonography despite a lack of evidence-based guidelines for their appropriate use in primary care. Little is known about the integration of ultrasonography in general practice consultations and the impact of its use on patient care. The purpose of this study was to explore general practitioners experiences of using ultrasonography in the primary care setting. Adopting an explorative phenomenological approach, we performed semi-structured interviews with general practitioners who used ultrasonography in their daily work. Thirteen general practitioners were recruited stepwise, aiming for maximum variation in background characteristics. Interviews were conducted at the general practitioners own clinic. Transcription and systematic text condensation analysis began immediately after conducting each interview. The general practitioners described using ultrasonography for both selected focused examinations and for explorative examinations. The two

Our study demonstrated that there are several inconsistencies in the perceptions of GP about diagnosis and management of axSpA, including AS. Most GP could provide an adequate description about "classic" AS and were aware of the fact that there is a substantial delay in diagnosis. GP also knew that there is a difference between MBP and IBP, but were unable to explain how to differentiate one from the other. Knowledge about the disease spectrum of axSpA and associated extraarticular manifestations was limited. All GP were aware of the benefits of physiotherapy and NSAID, and half of the GP knew that anti-TNF-α therapy can be prescribed in patients with axSpA.. Chronic back pain is a common symptom in the general population and it is estimated that in 5% of these cases axSpA is the underlying disease8. In about 75% of the patients with axSpA, the chronic back pain has an inflammatory character. Several criteria sets to define IBP have been proposed, consisting of several measures to differentiate ...

Purpose: The purpose of this article is to evaluate present literature and guidelines regarding preconception care for women with type I diabetes mellitus (T1DM) or type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and familiarize the family nurse practitioner (FNP) with current clinical recommendations. Data Sources: The guidelines reviewed include the Clinical Practice Recommendations from the American Diabetes Association 2013, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists pregestational diabetes mellitus guideline reaffirmed in 2010, and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence on how to manage diabetes and its complications from preconception to the postnatal period 2008. Conclusions: Guidelines were established based on clear and compelling evidence from randomized control studies, expert consensus, and clinical experience. Grading systems were used to clarify evidence and gave basis for support of recommendations. A review and analysis of each guideline is reported for the FNP.
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 ...
BACKGROUND: Physicians current attitudes and practices toward the management of high cholesterol levels in patients with recent acute myocardial infarction are not well defined. OBJECTIVE: To examine threshold levels of serum cholesterol and other factors that influence physicians decision to prescribe lipid-lowering drugs and initiate dietary therapy in patients with recent acute myocardial infarction. METHODS: Community-wide questionnaire survey of general internists, cardiologists, and family physicians practicing in the Worcester, Mass, metropolitan area. RESULTS: Among the 257 responding physicians, lipid-lowering drug therapy was more likely to be initiated in younger patients at lower total serum and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels than in older patients (P =.03). Younger physicians were more likely to initiate dietary and lipid-lowering drug therapy at lower total and LDL cholesterol levels than their older counterparts. Younger physicians also considered LDL cholesterol level

Our educational tutorial was very successful in improving pediatric and family practice residents general knowledge and knowledge of adverse events regarding childhood immunizations. Although some residents were well informed about the historical and ideological origins of parents resistance to vaccination, most were not. The majority was unfamiliar with resources for accurate information, the nature of the reporting system for adverse events, physician involvement in the antivaccine movement, and the status of philosophical objections to immunization. A large portion of residents likewise had inaccurate beliefs about many of the clinical features that are (or are not) associated with routine childhood immunizations.. On all but 3 of the clinical measures, posttest knowledge improved significantly. For the 2 of 3 that did not (fever and seizures), it was subsequently noted that the wording and layout of the items in question lent themselves to misinterpretation. In the case of "Fever ,102°F ...

Scotland has high levels of untreated dental caries in primary teeth. The Hall Technique is a simplified method of managing carious primary molars using preformed metal crowns (PMCs) cemented with no local anaesthesia, caries removal or tooth preparation. This study compared the acceptability of the Hall Technique for children, their carers, and dentists, and clinical outcomes for the technique, with conventional restorations. General dental practice based, split mouth, randomized controlled trial (132 children, aged 3-10). General dental practitioners (GDPs, n = 17) in Tayside, Scotland (dmft 2.7) placed conventional (Control) restorations in carious primary molars, and Hall Technique PMCs on the contralateral molar (matched clinically and radiographically). Dentists ranked the degree of discomfort they felt the child experienced for each procedure; then children, their carers and dentists stated which technique they preferred. The teeth were followed up clinically and radiographically. 128
In October, the Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente integrated health system released the first large studies of its proprietary Panel Support Tool. That tool, first rolled out in 2006, uses Web-based software that extracts information from Kaisers HealthConnect electronic medical record (EMR) to help physicians improve and manage their patients care. Kaiser officials say the two studies are the first to examine the effectiveness of the Panel Support Tool in a large, diverse patient population.. Kaiser Permanente leaders developed the Panel Support Tool in-house in order to help their primary care physicians manage the care of individual patients, groups of patients, or their entire panels. It works by comparing the care a patient is receiving to the care recommended by national guidelines. A physician can, for example, query the Panel Support Tool in advance of a patient visit, to find out if that patient needs a screening test or a vaccination. Physicians can also ask the Panel Support ...
in reply: We appreciate Dr. Kaufmans concerns regarding the anticipatory guidance that women receive about the treatment for a miscarriage. Extensive literature exists on the pain associated with the first-trimester aspiration procedure.1,2 Many authors conclude that the psychological state of the woman has the greatest influence on her perception of pain. As we point out in our article, patient preference about treatment choice is paramount. The article focuses on strategies that an office-based family physician can offer for management of miscarriage. However, after receiving accurate counseling regarding all aspects of the procedure (including logistics, timing, pain control, and cost), if the patient prefers a hospital-based procedure to expectant or medical management, or an office-based procedure, her preference should be honored.. We find that with this counseling nearly all women elect to stay within the family medicine office because this allows them to have a support person of their ...
to the editor: The article1 and editorial2 on care of patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the January 15, 2006, issue of American Family Physician emphasized the important medical services that family physicians can provide for patients infected with HIV, including health care maintenance, baseline evaluation and laboratory studies, and monitoring to guide the initiation of antiretroviral therapy and prophylaxis against opportunistic infections.. The role of family physicians will need to shift toward routine HIV screening for nearly all of our patients. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released new guidelines that recommend making HIV testing routine.3 The new federal guidelines will recommend one-time HIV testing for everyone between 13 and 64 years of age, with annual testing for those with risk factors. The new CDC guidelines are not consistent with those issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task ...

One characteristic of exemplary professional practice is meticulous attention to communication processes. One characteristic of exemplary professional practice is meticulous attention to communication processes. Educators and Clinical Nurse Specialists provided staff education at the unit level as we initiated the use of SBAR (described above) in 2006. Educational tools were developed to teach staff how to use SBAR communication, and staff had the opportunity to role play using the SBAR format. This use of SBAR has created a standardized approach to information sharing. It has created a shared mental model for effective information transfer by providing a standardized structure for concise, factual communication among clinicians, whether it is nurse-to-nurse, doctor-to-doctor, or nurse-to-doctor communication. It is now used to ensure that patient information is consistently and accurately communicated, especially during critical events, shift handoffs, and patient transfers between levels of ...
Our study found that Hong Kong physicians made the decision to encourage cervical screening and to participate in the CSP or to follow its guidelines based primarily upon their clinical and business practice needs rather than upon the scientific evidence. The low rates of adoption of the CSP can be attributed to the physicians perceptions that the programs complexity and incompatibility exceeded its relative advantages. Furthermore, womens knowledge, attitudes and practices, identified as barriers by physicians, were also barriers to physicians adopting the CSP. Our study finding of the physicians negative perceptions of the program, coupled with the individual nature of the patient-physician screening decision, indicate that the programs strategic focus on the private sector physician should be re-assessed to either add physician incentives or to refocus on increasing population-based demand.. Both private and public health care systems have struggled to disseminate evidence-based ...
