Intravenous Estrogen Is Not Proven Effective For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Guidelines Are Based On Flawed Evidence, Stephen Simmer 2015 Wayne State University

Intravenous Estrogen Is Not Proven Effective For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Guidelines Are Based On Flawed Evidence, Stephen Simmer

Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates

A clinical appraisal and clinical application of: DeVore GR, Owens O, Kase N. Use of intravenous Premarin in the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding--a double-blind randomized control study. Obstet Gynecol. 1982 Mar;59(3):285-91.

This appraisal identifies significant statistical irregularities in the study. A reworking of the study's statistics leads to a conclusion different from that put forth by the authors of this paper: intravenous estrogen therapy is not, in fact, significantly more effective compared to placebo therapy for the cessation of acute abnormal uterine bleeding.

Statewide Survey Identifies Major Opportunities To Improve Patient-Centered Care, James Bailey Jr., MD, FACP, Wayne J. Pitts PhD, Jill Nault MSSW 2015 University of Tennessee Health Science Center

Statewide Survey Identifies Major Opportunities To Improve Patient-Centered Care, James Bailey Jr., Md, Facp, Wayne J. Pitts Phd, Jill Nault Mssw

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

Primary care physicians (PCPs) are being challenged to provide higher quality and more patient-centered care. The Patient-Centered Medical Home Model has been demonstrated to improve healthcare quality as well as patient and physician satisfaction by fostering patient self-management, team-based care, work flow redesign, care coordination, patient–centered care, population health focus, and open access.1-3 Many states like North Carolina and Louisiana have launched major statewide efforts to support the development of patient-centered medical homes.4,5 However, poorly aligned reimbursement mechanisms and inadequate quality improvement (QI) infrastructure make adoption of emerging best practices difficult. Little is known regarding PCPs ...

Changes in the US Healthcare System along with the need for institutions of higher education to prepare a work force ready to address the challenges of today and tomorrow have highlighted the need to incorporate technology in its broadest sense as part of the student learning experience. In health professional education, this becomes challenging as programs have traditionally relied on face-to-face instruction along with internship experiences which provide hands on patient care. In addition, learning activities that incorporate higher order critical thinking must be incorporated in order to meet competency based professional expectations as well as expectations in the work ...

Patient Experience Journal

Student Run Clinics (SRCs) are a popular means of caring for the underserved while providing valuable medical education opportunities. Reports of patient experience surveys are rare in this setting. This is troublesome because it is possible that underserved patients, who are more likely to receive care at SRCs, are not receiving the same level of care as at more traditional medical practices. The purpose of this research was to measure patient experience in a student-led medical clinic. The method included the use of patient experience surveys, which were self-administered pre-visit and self- and interviewer administered post-visit. The key results, 100 ...


The Effects Of Videocasts On Student Learning In Medical Health Science Discipline, Jessica Viana 2014 Seton Hall University

The Effects Of Videocasts On Student Learning In Medical Health Science Discipline, Jessica Viana

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This quantitative study examines the effects of videocasts on student learning in a medical healthcare science discipline. The didactic nature of educational strategies is necessary in preparing future healthcare professionals. However, the manual skills cannot be reviewed once the student has left the classroom. Incorporating the use of videocasts into the resources for student learning adds another means for the students to follow and retain the skills acquired during class. Athletic training students in two accredited programs performed two class presentations over the course of one semester, one in the traditional format and one with the use of videocasts. The ...

Integrating Spirituality And Medical Education: What Students And Teachers Have To Say - A Qualitative Study, Sharon N. Hatcher

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Aims

This thesis explored the perceptions of medical students and teachers with regards to spirituality, its role in health care, and its integration into medical education.

Methods

Two studies were conducted using qualitative descriptive thematic analysis: the first using focus groups with students; and the second depth interviews with teachers. Both studies were carried out in Francophone Canada.

Findings

Teachers spoke of a concept of spirituality evolving as a journey, while students reported sudden turning-points. Both regarded spirituality as important to patient care. Students were struggling with their future physician role and their commitment to rationality, whereas teachers emphasized the ...


Determining The Quality Of Assessment Items In Collaborations: Aspects To Discuss To Reach Agreement Developed By The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration, Lambert Schuwirth, Jacob Pearce 2014 Flinders University

Determining The Quality Of Assessment Items In Collaborations: Aspects To Discuss To Reach Agreement Developed By The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration, Lambert Schuwirth, Jacob Pearce

Higher Education Research

The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration (AMAC) project, funded by the Office of Learning and Teaching, seeks to provide an infrastructure and a road map to support collaboration between Australian medical schools in matters of assessment. This may not seem very new perhaps, because there are already several collaborations taking place in Australia, and, typically, they relate to joint item banks, (such as the IDEAL consortium), or joint test administration, (such as the International Foundation of Medicine tests). The AMAC project seeks to build on these existing collaborations in two ways: first, by tying these initiatives together and thus bundling the ...
