  • Patients who seek advice from family physicians on dietary intervention and the value of estrogen replacement will benefit by several new studies [12].
  • In 1968 the University of Washington School of Medicine initiated a new curriculum that included a family physician pathway [13].

  • METHODS: Patients with severe IBS were randomly allocated to receive 8 sessions of individual psychotherapy, 20 mg daily of the specific serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant, paroxetine, or routine care by a gastroenterologist and general practitioner [15].

Associations of Physicians, Family with chemical compounds

  • Data from a survey of general-practitioner prescribing from 1967 to 1977 were examined to see how news of the changed potency of "Lanoxin" tablets in 1972 and of unbranded digoxin in 1975 had affected prescribing patterns [31].
  • Among 71 patients treated with practolol by general practitioners, eye complaints were recorded in the case-notes of 14 (20%) during treatment, compared with 4 (6%) during equal periods before the drug was prescribed [32].
  • METHODS: We randomly selected 2000 people from general practitioners' (family physicians) lists in London, UK, to receive a questionnaire that included a short fictional case history of an individual with possible anginal pain and asked how respondents would react to experiencing it [33].
  • The general practitioner records of 499 patients identified from a 10% sample of general practitioners showed that in 96% the general practitioner had prescribed a nitrate for the treatment of angina [34].
  • Computerized data sources routinely available in the Piedmont Region (hospital discharges and prescriptions data sources) showed a low completeness of ascertainment when considered together (65%, 1,338 of 2,069), indicating the need to involve the diabetic clinic and family physicians in the ascertainment of known diabetes [35].

Gene context of Physicians, Family

  • Nine hundred unrelated patients from Danish hospitals and general practitioners (group A) and 69 consecutive patients from a specialized liver unit (group B) were examined for HFE substitutions using multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction [36].
  • Family physicians can screen patients they suspect are at risk of hemochromatosis with simple indirect serum iron measurements (transferrin saturation and serum ferritin) and with widely available genetic tests (C282Y and H63D) [37].
  • These included: 51 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (group 1), 44 general practitioner (GP)-referred patients for osteopenia (group 2) and 52 young healthy volunteers (group 3) [38].
  • No reviews currently appear in the literature of prescribing patterns in Australia. This paper describes a self-audit of the clinical use of selective COX-2 inhibitor therapy undertaken with rural general practitioners (GPs) in Australia. METHODS: A structured audit form was developed and distributed to interested GPs [39].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1990 and 1998 follow-up CEA levels of 1,321 patients after curative colorectal cancer resection were prospectively collected in cooperation with family physicians, CEA determinations were made with different assays by various laboratories [40].
