Patient reported outcomes (PROs) are reports of health conditions that come directly from patients. Use of PROs has been associated with improved patient outcomes, enhanced quality of life, and reduced end-of-life spending. Yet there are still outstanding questions regarding the process of implementing PRO collection in routine practice. In this article, we describe the experience of selecting and implementing PROs in a multisite, multidisease academic medical center-based radiation oncology practice and demonstrate that such large-scale rollout is feasible...

BACKGROUND: Hypertrophy of the ligamentum flavum (LF) has been considered as a major cause of lumbar central spinal stenosis (LCSS). Previous studies have found that ligamentum flavum thickness (LFT) is correlated with aging, disc degeneration, and lumbar spinal stenosis. However, hypertrophy is different from thickness. Thus, to evaluate hypertrophy of the whole LF, we devised a new morphological parameter, called the ligamentum flavum area (LFA). OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that the LFA is a key morphologic parameter in the diagnosis of LCSS...

An accurate and reproducible recording of laryngoscopic view at tracheal intubation is an important aspect of anaesthetic practice. Unlike direct laryngoscopy, in which the view achieved by the line of sight directly relates to the ease of intubating the trachea, videolaryngoscopy can create a situation in which the view is good, but intubation difficult or impossible. Communicating this to a subsequent anaesthetist is important. We compared three scoring systems: Cormack and Lehane; POGO (percentage of glottic opening); and the Fremantle score, as used by 74 critical care doctors rating 30 anonymised videos of videolaryngoscopic intubations...

The increasing relevance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in medical care is indisputable. This evidence makes it necessary to start studies that analyse the scope these new forms of access to information and understanding of medicine have on the professional activity of the physician, on the attitude and on the knowledge of patients or, on the doctor-patient relationship. The purpose of this study is to explore some of these aspects in a group of physicians whose clinical activity is related to one of the greatest social impact health problems which is the treatment of chronic pain...

INTRODUCTION: The top predictors of patient satisfaction with clinical visits are the quality of the physician-patient relationship and the communications contributing to their relationship. How do physicians improve their communication, and what effect does it have on them? This article presents the verbatim stories of seven high-performing physicians describing their transformative change in the areas of communication, connection, and well-being. METHODS: Data for this study are based on interviews from a previous study in which a 6-question set was posed, in semistructured 60-minute interviews, to 77 of the highest-performing Permanente Medical Group physicians in 4 Regions on the "Art of Medicine" patient survey...

Effective communication is critical, including in the pediatric primary care setting. Pediatric primary care providers (PPCPs) are in a unique position to address psychosocial and mental health concerns during office visits, and effective communication skills play a crucial role in providing an opportunity for parents and patients to disclose and discuss such concerns. In this article, the authors encourage two relatively simple strategies that have shown potential for enhancing effective communication in pediatric primary care regarding mental health and psychosocial issues: (a) ensure that pediatric residents and practicing providers have access to brief, targeted communications training and (b) strongly promote the use of screening tools both to encourage discussion and to assist in identifying children who may benefit from further assessment and/or treatment...

A new clinic conception, healthy cosmetic management (HCM), was innovated introduced into diagnose and treatment of patients with high caries risk. The priority of HCM should be given to aesthetic restoration of teeth, taking consideration of the conserving of tissue and pulp of teeth and the balance between health and aesthetics, which may reach to the goal of the individual clinic treatment. HCM includes five steps: 1) caries risk assessment; 2) detection of initial caries; 3) digital aesthetic design; 4) minimally invasive therapy; 5) behavior management of caries and doctor-patient communication pattern...

BACKGROUND: Although a model for shared decision-making is important for patient-centered care, decisional conflict can emerge when patients participate in the decision-making. A decision aid is proposed to provide information and to involve patients more comfortably in the decision-making process. We aimed to determine whether a decision aid helps patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) experience less decisional conflict regarding their decision-making for surgery. METHODS: Eighty patients with CTS were randomized into two groups...

Ethyl ether was the first accepted effective general anaesthetic. It was introduced into China by an America missionary, Dr. Peter Parker. This was one of the historical events of medical communication between China and the West. In the records of the first operation with ether, however, Dr. Parker unusually omitted the patient's medical record number and the date of the operation, while those of other operations with ether anesthetics were all available. This was very unusual for a doctor like Peter Parker who always recorded every important case in detail in the hospital reports...
