A Study Of Headache In North American Primary Care: Report For The Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network, L A. Becker, Donald C. Iverson, F M. Read, N Calogne, R S. Miller, W L. Freeman

Don C. Iverson

Headache is a common symptom in primary care about which surprisingly little is known. Over a 14-month period 3847 patients making 4940 consecutive visits for headache to 38 primary care practices in the USA and Canada were studied. The clinical characteristics of patients, as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies employed by their doctors, were examined. Visits for headache represented 1.5% of all visits during this period. Most patients (72.0%) made only one visit, and nearly half of the headaches reported were new. Only a small number of patients (3.0%) received a computerized tomographic scan; other ...


Spontaneous Abortion In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn, L Green, L Becker, W Freeman, E Elliott, Donald Iverson, F Reed Jun 2012

Spontaneous Abortion In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn, L Green, L Becker, W Freeman, E Elliott, Donald Iverson, F Reed

Don C. Iverson

The Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network (ASPN) conducted an observational study of usual primary care of spontaneous abortion (SAB). Forty-nine practices in 18 states and four Canadian provinces reported and audited 171 SABs. Contrary to recommendations in some texts, 40 percent were managed completely in the office and/or at home, and only 51 percent had a dilation and curettage (D&C). SABs occurring later in pregnancy were more likely to be managed in the emergency room/hospital, receive consultation, and have a D&C. Patients managed with D&C had a greater frequency of excessive blood loss at diagnosis, but ...


Patients With New Headache In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn, L Becker, Donald Iverson, F Reed, N Calonge, R Miller, W Freeman Jun 2012

Patients With New Headache In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn, L Becker, Donald Iverson, F Reed, N Calonge, R Miller, W Freeman

Don C. Iverson

From a consecutive series of 3,847 headache patients, 1,331 patients who made first visits for new headache to 120 primary care physicians were studied for usual care over a 14-month period. Either tension or vascular headache was the initial diagnosis in 23.8 percent and 12.8 percent of patients, respectively. Nearly one half (47.8 percent) were classified as having headaches other than tension or vascular. A total of 15.3 percent of headaches were undiagnosed or were regarded as a mixture of traditional diagnostic designations. At first visit, most patients (76.6 percent) were managed without ...


The Development And Management Of A Primary Care Research Network, 1978-87, Donald Iverson, B Calonge, R Miller, L Niebauer, F Reed Jun 2012

The Development And Management Of A Primary Care Research Network, 1978-87, Donald Iverson, B Calonge, R Miller, L Niebauer, F Reed

Don C. Iverson

The Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network (ASPN) was created to increase the knowledge of primary care. Building on the experiences of other national and regional primary care research networks, ASPN has evolved as a North American network including practices in 25 U.S. states and four Canadian provinces in 1987. This paper summarizes ASPN's growth and development since 1978, the involvement of the ASPN practices, and the mechanisms used in developing and managing studies.


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn. Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network, R Miller, Donald Iverson, R Fried, L Green, Paul Nutting Jun 2012

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome In Primary Care: A Report From Aspn. Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network, R Miller, Donald Iverson, R Fried, L Green, Paul Nutting

Don C. Iverson

Carpaltunnelsyndrome is the entrapment neuropathy of the medign nerve at the wrist. It is the most common nerve compression disorder seen by physicians, affecting women up to five times more frequently than men, especially during the reproductive years. Carpaltunnelsyndrome is known to be aggravated during pregnancy and menopause. Primary care physicians can expect to see approximately 1.01 cases of carpaltunnelsyndrome per 1,000 office encounters, with a female age-adjusted rate of 1.49 per 1,000 person-years. Physicians can identify this syndrome with an accurate and detailed history and physical exam. In most cases, electrodiagnostic studies, such as nerve ...


Barriers And Enablers To Implementation Of A New Zealand-Wide Guideline For Assessment And Management Of Cardiovascular Risk In Primary Health Care: A Template Analysis, Ann Mckillop, Jackie Crisp, Kenneth Walsh Jan 2012

Barriers And Enablers To Implementation Of A New Zealand-Wide Guideline For Assessment And Management Of Cardiovascular Risk In Primary Health Care: A Template Analysis, Ann Mckillop, Jackie Crisp, Kenneth Walsh

Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences - Papers (Archive)

Aim: The aim of this study was to identify the enablers and barriers to guideline implementation in a primary healthcare setting by employing the Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) framework as a template for data analysis and interpretation. Background: The use of clinical practice guidelines is pivotal to improving health outcomes. However, the implementation of guidelines into practice is complex, unpredictable, and, in spite of much investigation, remains resistant to explanation of what works and why. Optimising the enablers and minimising the barriers to implementation of a guideline for reducing cardiovascular disease risk has the potential ...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of the DietAdvice website, a self-administered online dietary assessment, in the context of a dietary intervention randomized controlled trial [ACTRN 12608000425392]. Data available from a total of n=118 volunteers recruited to the dietary trial and using the website in the clinic at t=0, 3 and 12mo was compared with that obtained from diet histories (DH) and 3-day food record (FR). Fasting blood samples from these time points were also correlated with the macronutrient values obtained. Complete web based records were obtained for 65% of participants at t=0 ...

Objective: Food marketing is linked to childhood obesity through its influence on children’s food preferences, purchase requests and food consumption. We aimed to describe the volume and nature of outdoor food advertisements and factors associated with outdoor food advertising in the area surrounding Australian primary schools. Methods: Forty primary schools in Sydney and Wollongong were selected using random sampling within population density and socio-economic strata. The area within a 500m radius of each school was scanned and advertisements coded according to pre-defined criteria, including: food or non-food product advertisement, distance from the school, size and location. Food advertisements were ...

Book Of Mormon Stories Diglot Reader On Computer, Neal S. Harmon

Theses and Dissertations

This report describes the design, development, and evaluation of a computer-based diglot reader of the Book of Mormon Stories of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Di means two and glot means language, thus a diglot reader combines two languages into one reader in order to teach a person to read in a new language. The program, which runs on both Macintosh and Windows computer platforms, contains fifteen chapters of the Book of Mormon Stories and introduces about four hundred Spanish words. This report includes a literature review on the diglot method and related materials, a description of ...
