Have you thought about people who have been recently diagnosed with cancer? Often times these individuals do choose to undergo medical treatment.
In 2009 the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative included assessing for falls and creating plans to reduce falls. This research looking at claims data from 2012-2013 provides insight into clinical practice.
We know that when an older adult falls, there is a high likelihood of injury. Could we address reducing the rate of falls a bit differently in the clinic?
As I read this abstract, my mind went into a whole different area: machine learning. Technology has come so far in the last 5 years that at some point, we need to discuss the idea of machine learning to help improve the care we provide.
This recent research that happens to be popping up online has me pause and wonder if it truly analyzed the situation of both the exercise interventions after a total knee arthroplasty and the outcomes.
This recent abstract helps reduce confusion about the various terms that are used to determine the value of care.
You provide care for quite a few people who have knee pain. Sometimes you see these patients before surgery – other times after surgery. When someone has persistent knee pain, what is something you typically note during your examination?
It seems that the philosophy of less care (diagnostic tests, injections, medications & surgery) is better care. This current study intrigued me because it looked at the results of nonoperative care for rotator cuff tears.
If your patient happens to have mild to moderate dementia, is it possible to have an effect on the motor and cognitive functional ability?
For some reason, when I think of fracture risk, I immediately think of bone density. My thoughts are being challenged with this recent study.
