    Title Measuring Awareness, Interest, and Involvement in the Osteopathic Community Through Board Certification: a Survey of Do Residents in Acgme-accredited Training Programs.
    Date September 2010
    Journal The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association
    Excerpt

    Currently, close to 50% of osteopathic medical graduates receive residency training from programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) rather than those approved by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). As a result, leaders within the osteopathic medical profession have expressed ongoing concerns about the viability of the profession's distinct osteopathic identity. Using a one-page, 12-item survey, the authors queried ACGME-trained family practice residents (N=1354) regarding their interest in formal membership, continuing medical education activities, and specialty board certification options within the osteopathic medical profession. Four hundred twenty-six completed surveys were returned and usable for analysis for an overall response rate of 31.4%. A majority of survey participants indicated an interest "in continuing [their] osteopathic skills and training during residency" (376 [88.5%]), membership in osteopathic organizations and participating in continuing medical education programs (325 [77.2%]), and completing the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians certification examination (267 [63.7%]). Unfortunately, actual involvement may be limited by lack of communication or understanding, as in the case of lack of awareness regarding eligibility criteria for AOA board certification (311 [74.2%]). A variety of recommendations are offered to osteopathic organizations to improve involvement in and commitment to the profession among ACGME-trained DOs.

    Title The Economic Impact of Acute Sunburn.
    Date September 2003
    Journal Archives of Dermatology
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: To estimate the economic impact of sunburn in a beachgoing population during the summer. DESIGN: Survey. SETTING: Galveston, Tex, beachfront. PARTICIPANTS: Convenience sample of 56 sunburned beachgoers.Intervention None. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Days of work lost as a result of sunburn in the previous year. RESULTS: Thirty-eight respondents (68%) reported painful sunburn. Sunscreen use did not prevent painful sunburn (23/38 [60%]). Those consuming alcohol at the beach had more severe sunburns than nondrinkers and had a higher frequency of analgesic use after sunburn (69% vs 26%, P =.007). Five men (5/18 [28%]) and 4 women (4/38 [10%]) missed a total of 9 and 8 days of work, respectively, because of sunburn within the prior year. Based on these findings and attendant assumptions, it is estimated that sunburn may account for as many as 92 720 lost workdays by Galveston beachgoers each year. The annual economic impact for lost work and treatment may exceed $10 million. CONCLUSION: Sunburn is a costly and preventable skin injury.

    Title The Treatment of Nonstreptococcal Pharyngitis with Erythromycin: a Preliminary Study.
    Date February 1990
    Journal Family Medicine
    Excerpt

    This preliminary study evaluated the effectiveness of enteric-coated erythromycin in the treatment of adults with nonstreptococcal pharyngitis. Twenty-six patients, aged 12 or older, with nonstreptococcal pharyngitis were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to receive either enteric-coated erythromycin or placebo for 10 days. Each day the patients rated the soreness of their throats and how sick they felt. The use of erythromycin appeared to decrease the median number of days for the feeling of sickness to improve (two days versus four days, P less than .01) as well as to decrease the median number of days for the feeling of sickness to resolve (three-and-a-half days versus five days, P less than .05). This apparent improvement in sickness occurred even though there was no significant decrease in the soreness of the throat in patients treated with erythromycin compared to those patients treated with placebo. Treatment with enteric-coated erythromycin appeared to shorten the time until improvement in this group of adults with nonstreptococcal pharyngitis.

    Title Nephrolithiasis in Pregnancy.
    Date September 1989
    Journal American Family Physician
    Excerpt

    Nephrolithiasis is a rare but important condition in pregnant women. The most common presenting complaint is flank pain. Recurrent or persistent urinary tract infections may also be due to nephrolithiasis. Ultrasound is the first-line diagnostic study, but a limited intravenous pyelogram can be obtained when indicated. Spontaneous passage of the stone occurs in approximately two-thirds of patients.

    Title The Effect of Income Projection on Resident Charges for Services.
    Date June 1989
    Journal Family Medicine
    Excerpt

    This study examined how family practice residents coded their patient care services, and whether feedback on coding patterns together with income projections would alter coding behavior. Current and future income projections were calculated using assumptions about the practice setting. The collected and calculated data were presented to the residents after the study period, together with a discussion of coding of patient care services and fees. The same data were collected three months and nine months later. There was no significant difference in coding patterns when comparing first- to second- to third-year residents. Six months after the information was presented to the residents, the percentage of brief visits coded decreased significantly, and the percentages of intermediate and comprehensive visits coded increased significantly. Twelve months later, the changes in coding patterns had reverted to the initial findings. This appears to be an effective approach that could be used elsewhere to teach coding of patient care services as part of a practice management curriculum.
