Ruth Kannai, Aya Alon
This story is a reflection on the evolving relationship of a family physician with a patient suffering from a severe conversion disorder, expressed inter alia through "blindness." The narrative follows our journey as I attempt to unravel the meaning of the symptoms as a metaphoric expression of her agony. Eventually, I conclude that clinicians at times also may have a "blind spot" that prevents us from entirely grasping patients' complex inner struggles.

Amelia Goodfellow, Curtis Bone, Lillian Gelberg
In my first year of medical school, I began to care for patients who were survivors of interpersonal violence. As I transitioned from didactics to clinical experiences, I was struck by how common the hidden threads of physical and sexual violence were in my patients' stories of chronic pain, depression, and poor health outcomes. Their symptoms often seemed intangible and challenging to treat, unable to fit neatly into typical diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms. In response, I saw clinicians become frustrated and dissatisfied with their ability to treat these patients...

#11
Thomas Bodenheimer, Cynthia Haq, Wilhelm Lehmann
The number of physicians seeing patients part time is growing, an evolution that challenges the primary care pillars of continuity and access. The growth of part-time practice is a response to burnout and to the pressures facing primary care physicians. Physicians who work fewer clinical hours and thereby reduce burnout are more satisfied with their careers, less likely to leave their jobs, and provide a better patient experience. Primary care practices can make a number of adjustments to optimize continuity and access in this era of part-time practice...

Norbert Donner-Banzhoff
Arriving at an agreed-on and valid explanation for a clinical problem is important to patients as well as to clinicians. Current theories of how clinicians arrive at diagnoses, such as the threshold approach and the hypothetico-deductive model, do not accurately describe the diagnostic process in general practice. The problem space in general practice is so large and the prior probability of each disease being present is so small that it is not realistic to limit the diagnostic process to testing specific diagnoses on the clinician's list of possibilities...

Sonia A Havele, Elizabeth R Pfoh, Chen Yan, Anita D Misra-Hebert, Phuc Le, Michael B Rothberg
This qualitative study examines to what extent and why physicans still prescribe self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in patients with non-insulin-treated type 2 diabetes (NITT2D) when the evidence shows it increases cost without improving hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c ), general well being, or health-related quality of life. Semistructured phone interviews with 17 primary care physicians indicated that the majority continue to recommend routine self-monitoring of blood glucose due to a compelling belief in its ability to promote the lifestyle changes needed for glycemic control...

Though integrated behavioral health programs often encourage primary care physicians to refer patients by means of a personal introduction (warm handoff), data are limited regarding the benefits of warm handoffs. We conducted a retrospective study of adult primary care patients referred to behavioral health clinicians in an urban, safety-net hospital to investigate the association between warm handoffs and attendance rates at subsequent initial behavioral health appointments. In multivariable analyses, patients referred via warm handoffs were not more likely to attend initial appointments (OR = 0...

There are concerns regarding whether patients with mental illness should be provided with access to their electronic medical records. This study compared perceptions of patients with (n = 400) and without (n = 2,134) a mental health diagnosis regarding access to primary care clinic notes through secure online portals. Eligible participants viewed at least 1 clinic note during a 12-month period. Administrative data were used to stratify patients by mental health diagnosis. As we hypothesized, patients with and without mental health diagnoses had similar perceptions about online access to notes...

PURPOSE: Many who seek primary health care advice about mental health may be using mobile applications (apps) claiming to improve well-being or relieve symptoms. We aimed to identify how prominent mental health apps frame mental health, including who has problems and how they should be managed. METHODS: We conducted a qualitative content analysis of advertising material for mental health apps found online in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia during late 2016...

PURPOSE: To examine how family physicians', patients', and trained clinical raters' assessments of physician-patient communication compare by analysis of individual appointments. METHODS: Analysis of survey data from patients attending face-to-face appointments with 45 family physicians at 13 practices in England. Immediately post-appointment, patients and physicians independently completed a questionnaire including 7 items assessing communication quality. A sample of videotaped appointments was assessed by trained clinical raters, using the same 7 communication items...

Luke T A Mounce, John L Campbell, William E Henley, Maria C Tejerina Arreal, Ian Porter, Jose M Valderas
PURPOSE: Multimorbidity is associated with adverse outcomes, yet research on the determinants of its incidence is lacking. We investigated which sociodemographic, health, and individual lifestyle (eg, physical activity, smoking behavior, body mass index) characteristics predict new cases of multimorbidity. METHODS: We used data from 4,564 participants aged 50 years and older in the English Longitudinal Study of Aging that included a 10-year follow-up period. Discrete time-to-event (complementary log-log) models were constructed for exploring the associations of baseline characteristics with outcomes between 2002-2003 and 2012-2013 separately for participants with no initial conditions (n = 1,377) developing multimorbidity, any increase in conditions within 10 years regardless of initial conditions, and the impact of individual conditions on incident multimorbidity...

PURPOSE: Fever is the most common reason for a child to be taken to a physician, yet the level of unwarranted antibiotic prescribing remains high. We aimed to determine the effect on antibiotic prescribing of providing an illness-focused interactive booklet on fever in children to out-of-hours primary care clinicians. METHODS: We conducted a cluster-randomized controlled trial in 20 out-of-hours general practice centers in the Netherlands. Children aged younger than 12 years with fever were included...

Sanjay Basu, Russell S Phillips, Asaf Bitton, Zirui Song, Bruce E Landon
PURPOSE: To estimate the conditions under which team documentation-having a staff member enter history, place orders, and guide patients-would be financially viable at primary care practices, accounting for implementation costs. METHODS: We applied a validated microsimulation model of practice costs, revenues, and time use to data from 643 US primary care practices. We estimated critical threshold values for time saved from routine visits that would need to be redirected to new visits to avoid net revenue losses under: (1) a clerical documentation assistant (CDA) strategy where a scribe assists with recordkeeping; and (2) an advanced team-based care (ATBC) strategy where medical assistants perform history, documentation, counseling, and order entry...
