Megan E Wright, Denise Rizzolo
Neuropathic pain results directly from a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system and can be central or peripheral in origin. Epidemiologic research suggests that 7% to 10% of the general population suffers from neuropathic pain, although the prevalence may be underestimated. Patients with neuropathic pain may experience anxiety, depression, insomnia, disability, and reduced quality of life. Treatment remains suboptimal because traditional drugs provide only modest pain relief. This article reviews the causes of neuropathic pain, patient presentation, diagnosis, and management strategies...

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disabling condition that results in central vision loss and significantly affects the quality of life for the growing population of older adults. Primary care providers play a vital role in early recognition of disease. This article reviews the risk factors, symptoms, physical examination findings, and management of AMD. Although there is no cure at this time, early referral and treatment may prevent some patients from progressing to complete.

This article reviews the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and monitoring of patients with CF as well as guidelines for management and emerging pharmacologic treatments.

Koos Meijer, Luppo Kuilman
Physician assistants (PAs) were introduced in the Netherlands in 2002 and are now widely deployed. However, little is known about patient satisfaction with Dutch PAs. A comparative study of patient satisfaction was undertaken in the primary care setting. Patients seen by general practitioners (GPs) and PAs were surveyed using the Consumer Quality Index, a European quality survey instrument. Quality of performance indicators included patient satisfaction, effectiveness of treatment, and safety of treatment. The results found that few differences emerged, and Dutch patients appear to be as satisfied with the care received by PAs as with GPs...

Tristen A Harris, Kenneth R Butler
This article describes the history of physician assistants (PAs) in Mississippi, the last state to pass legislation allowing for PA practice. A small group of PAs in the state began pursuing a PA practice act in the early 1990s with little political advocacy experience, and in 1994, the American Academy of PAs actively joined "The Battle for Mississippi." In April 2000, after years of PA advocacy, Mississippi passed the bill that would authorize PA practice in the state.

The bibliographic span from this period contains about 2,400 studies that advance some notion of PA benefit to society.

The world of healthcare is changing, and patient needs are changing with it. Traditional doctor-driven models of workforce planning are no longer sustainable in the United Kingdom (UK) healthcare economy, and newer models are needed. In the multiprofessional, multiskilled clinical workforce of the future, the physician associate (PA) has a fundamental role to play as an integrated, frontline, generalist clinician. As of 2016, about 350 PAs were practicing in the UK, with 550 PAs in training and plans to expand rapidly...
