AGS Geriatrics Virtual Patient Case: Goals of care and shared decision making for a patient with colon cancer and possible metastases American Geriatrics Society
There is a significant shortfall of trained geriatricians to meet the healthcare needs of the older adult population, and older people are likely to need non-primary care from non-geriatrician specialists. The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) developed the Geriatrics Virtual Patient Cases in order to provide non-geriatrician specialists with guidance on best practices in the care of older adults. This specific case will improve the skill of non-geriatrician diplomates in addressing goals of care and shared decision making with geriatric patients.
Colorectal Cancer Screening: New Guidelines, New Options Louisiana Medical Mutual Insurance Company (LAMMICO)
In June 2016, the US Preventive Services Task Force issued a new recommendation for colorectal cancer screening of eligible adults by any of 7 methods, from endoscopy to CT colonography to stool or blood tests. Colonoscopy has been considered by many to be the gold standard for screening, but there are significant barriers to it, and approximately one-third of eligible individuals have never been screened. Physicians and nurses will do well to become conversant with the new USPSTF guideline, as well as the guideline of their own specialty society, the better to advise their patients.
Running on Empty? Physicians' Path to Enjoying Life and Medicine More Massachusetts Medical Society
Physician “burnout” is an epidemic in the US. Physician’s face obstacles, such as meeting regulatory and legislative demands, understanding health insurance plans and policies, non-compliant patients, and more, on a daily basis that impact their wellness and personal life, which can often lead to “burnout”. More than half of US physicians have measurable symptoms of burnout – emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and reduced perception of personal accomplishment. The rates have soared in recent year, and it’s worse for physicians in many specialties, particularly internal medicine, critical care, and emergency and family medicine Physician’s and their staff need to be able to identify factors that add stress, understand existing resources to utilize, and delegate time to address these obstacles. Physicians also need to realize their mental and physical well-being is crucial in order to provide quality care to their patients. These needs are caused by competence and performance gaps.
