A significant number of oncological patients are heavily burdened by psychosocial stress. Doctors recommending or referring their patients to psycho-oncologists in the course of routine consultations can positively influence psycho-oncological care. The aim of this study was to analyze the frequency and predictors of such recommendations and to examine the use of these services by patients.
Sexual health is an internationally recognised human right, imposing obligations on States to promote the aspirations enshrined in this right. However, from a legal and ethical perspective, the right to sexual health also creates duties for doctors to protect, respect and - where possible - fulfil. By means of a number of scenarios, we discuss how doctors should react to these situations. The responsibility of doctors concerning the sexual health of patients goes further than many would assume, but also has...
Patients' first impressions obtained during early contacts with doctors represent the basis for relationship building processes. Aim of this study was to verify how patients' first impression of doctors' communication approach influences patients' global assessment of doctors' performance. This cross-sectional study was part of a larger, multicenter observational study aiming to assess lay-people's preferences regarding patient-doctor communication. All participants (N = 136) were equally distributed over...
Junior doctors have the highest rates of prescribing errors, yet no study has set out to understand the differences between completely novice prescribers (Foundation year one (FY1) doctors) and those who have gained some experience (Foundation year two (FY2) doctors). The objective of this study was to uncover the causes of prescribing errors made by FY2 doctors and compare them with previously collected data of the causes of errors made by FY1 doctors.
A larger surgical volume leads to better surgical outcomes, which holds true to surgery for placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders. PAS patients should be managed at specialized centers. However, Sargent and Collins demonstrated that this was not the case in England; 63% of non-specialist centers perform PAS surgery without referring them to specialist centers. They stated that "the benefit of referral to more experienced centers may not be understood", but not understood by whom, doctors, patients, or s...
One in five hospitalized patients presents with previously undetected diabetes mellitus (DM). We assessed whether hospital doctors measure HbAc in hospitalized patients and act consequently.
Doctors are responsible for code status discussions with patients in the hospital setting. However, several barriers are associated with these discussions, relating to both doctors and patients. Inadequate or insufficient communication can lead to inappropriate care, contrary to patients' preferences and, subsequently, to a suboptimal use of health care resources. Ways to improve these discussions have been identified, such as doctor-targeted educational programs and inserting decisions about code status wi...
Screening programs efficiently reduce incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer. Participation rates in Germany are still relatively low. By knowing how doctors manage their own colorectal cancer screening provides information how they estimate the potential of these strategies and what they recommend their patients.
Although there is reasonably rich literature on socialisation in medical schools, few studies have investigated emotional socialisation among qualified doctors; specifically how specialist training reproduces the norms, values, and assumptions of medical culture. This article explores expressions and management of emotion in doctors' narratives of work and training for insights into how socialisation continues after graduation. The study employed qualitative methods - in-depth interviews - with fifty doctor...
Clinical guidelines advocate that cardiovascular benefits of statin treatment overweigh the risk of impairment of glucose metabolism. The aim of the study was to examine the attitudes of family doctors towards statin treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Medication-related harm (MRH) is common in older adults following hospital discharge. In resource-limited health systems, interventions to reduce this risk can be targeted at high-risk patients. This study aims to determine whether (1) doctors can predict which older patients will experience MRH requiring healthcare following hospital discharge, (2) clinical experience and confidence in prediction influence the accuracy of the prediction.
The rise of doctors becoming entrepreneurs can be the solution to the challenges the National Health Service (NHS) currently faces. Doctors and medical students with entrepreneurial aspirations are creating innovative solutions to the problems patients experience. With increasing patient load and decreasing resources in hospitals, it is necessary that medical students are inspired to develop skills that will help to identify problems within organisations and have the knowledge and platforms to convert ideas...
Doctors encounter lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) patients. Most LGBs are physically and mentally healthy, but LGBs also have unique healthcare needs, that is mental health issues, sexually-transmitted diseases including HIV infection, substance use, and avoidance of healthcare. Sexual minority stress due to stigmatisation, rejection, internalised homophobia, bullying and violence is a causal issue. Optimising care for LGBs involves knowing patients' sexual orientation by asking them. As sexual orientation ...
Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States. Lung cancer screening (LCS) with low-dose CT reduces mortality among high-risk current and former smokers and has been covered by public and private insurers without cost sharing since 2015. Patients and referring providers confront numerous barriers to participation in screening. To best serve in multidisciplinary efforts to expand LCS nationwide, radiologists must be knowledgeable of these challenges. A better understanding of...
Many countries lack sufficient medical doctors to provide safe and affordable surgical and emergency obstetric care. Task-sharing with associate clinicians (ACs) has been suggested to fill this gap. The aim of this study was to assess maternal and neonatal outcomes of caesarean sections performed by ACs and doctors.
The study has been conducted to compare newly graduated nurses' and doctors' opinions about spiritual care and their emotional intelligence levels. Descriptive study's sample consisted of 50 nurses and 50 doctors who graduated from a university's medical faculty and health faculty recently. Data were collected by Personal Information Form, Spirituality and Spiritual Care Rating Scale, and Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale. Emotional intelligence (t = 3.42, p = 0.001) and spirituality and spiritua...
Drug errors are common and can be detrimental to patients, even resulting in death. Junior doctors write most prescriptions and are therefore responsible for most errors. There is little literature about the effect of legibility of the prescriber's handwriting on the rate of drug errors. Folklore would deem doctors' handwriting to be poorer than average; however, studies have shown this to be incorrect. In fact, handwriting in general has been shown to be poor.
Provision of nutritional support (NS) can improve disease outcome and shorten hospital length of stay. NS, often prescribed by medical doctors, requires adequate clinical nutrition (CN) expertise. The aim of this study was to investigate self-perceived and actual CN knowledge among medical doctors in Greece.
The overuse of medical tests leads to higher costs, wasting of resources, and the potential for overdiagnosis of disease. This study was designed to determine whether the patients of family doctors who order more routine medical tests are diagnosed with more cancers.
Many diabetes patients can use peritoneal dialysis, which allows them to self-administer dialysis at home. But researchers and kidney specialists say there are many obstacles in the way: a lack of doctors and nurses with training in how to instruct patients, the sunk costs of existing dialysis clinics, and the reluctance of patients and their families.
Autoimmune thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (iTTP) is caused by autoantibody-mediated severe a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 repeats, member 13 (ADAMTS13) deficiency leading to micro-angiopathic haemolytic anaemia (MAHA) and thrombocytopenia with organ damage. Patients survive with plasma exchange (PEX), fresh frozen plasma replacement and corticosteroid treatment. Anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody rituximab is increasingly used in patients resistant to conventional PEX or rel...
Compassion has always been a vital component of healthcare anywhere in the world. With numerous definitions in a variety of contexts, it cannot simply be prescribed, measured or given in a bottle. When our patients are ill, great attention is paid to the verbal and non-verbal communication presented by a doctor and the manner in which they are delivered. However, with an ever-growing demand on the NHS workforce, numerous patient surveys across the UK have accused doctors for lacking compassion in their prac...
Prescribing is a core skill for junior doctors, yet 8-10% of their prescriptions contain errors. To ensure adequate training in prescribing, it is important to define the diseases for which junior doctors should be competent to prescribe. The aim of the present study was therefore to identify the Essential Diseases in prescribing for junior doctors.
