Prostate Cancer Decision-Making, Health Services, and the Family Physician Workforce
Does untreated cancer equal death? Does having a registered nurse versus a licensed practical nurse versus a medical assistant affect diabetes quality outcomes? Do physicians caring for stressed patients experience vicarious traumatic stress? Oregon presents an operationalized definition of a patient-centered medical home for their state. Lots of important clinical topics in family medicine—adult attention deficit disorder office questionnaire; Bell palsy; cancer screening and treatment decisions; lubrication during Papanicolaou testing; changes in maternity care training by residencies; changing prescribing patterns for thiazide diuretics; and night sweats remain a mystery.
