Gender, administration duty, employment hospital, education status, subspecialty, exposure to any medical disputes, lawsuits or loss of a lawsuit, and colleagues' experiences were independent risk factors relevant to participants' preferences about defensive medicine in a multivariate model.

64. From Defensive Medicine to Quaternary Prevention: The Transition That Pakistan Needs Full Text available with Trip Pro

From Defensive Medicine to Quaternary Prevention: The Transition That Pakistan Needs The issue of overprescribing laboratory investigations is an old one in the world of medical practice and it has unfortunately seen a tremendous increase with the digitalisation of medicine, in more recent times. Phrased usually as 'defensive medicine,' this kind of overmedicalisation steers medical practice away from the ethical, skill-refining fronts on the part of doctors and imposes an unnecessary financial (...) burden on the patients' pockets, adding to their suffering. Pakistan has not been able to save itself either, from the impropriety that roots out of what is now almost a norm in medical practice. The existent low literacy and awareness rates in the masses of the country, coupled with the cultural respect for doctors and lack of financial resources amongst the poor patients to stand up to doctors or the hospitals, have all made it even easier for physicians to get away with ordering whatever

69. Study of Medical Students' Malpractice Fear and Defensive Medicine: A “Hidden Curriculum?” Full Text available with Trip Pro

Study of Medical Students' Malpractice Fear and Defensive Medicine: A “Hidden Curriculum?” Defensive medicine is a medical practice in which health care providers' primary intent is to avoid criticism and lawsuits, rather than providing for patients' medical needs. The purpose of this study was to characterize medical students' exposure to defensive medicine during medical school rotations.We performed a cross-sectional survey study of medical students at the beginning of their third year (...) . We gave students Likert scale questionnaires, and their responses were tabulated as a percent with 95% confidence interval (CI).Of the 124 eligible third-year students, 102 (82%) responded. Most stated they rarely worried about being sued (85.3% [95% CI=77.1% to 90.9%]). A majority felt that faculty were concerned about malpractice (55.9% [95% CI=46.2% to 65.1%]), and a smaller percentage stated that faculty taught defensive medicine (32.4% [95% CI=24.1% to 41.9%]).

77. Association between the antioxidant uric acid and depression and antidepressant medication use in 96 989 individuals. (Abstract)

Association between the antioxidant uric acid and depression and antidepressant medication use in 96 989 individuals. In the last decade, several studies have suggested that depression is accompanied by increased oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant defenses. We tested the hypothesis that high levels of the antioxidant uric acid are associated with lower risk of hospitalization with depression and use of prescription antidepressant medication.We examined plasma levels of the antioxidant (...) as in-patient or out-patient with depression and antidepressant medication use. A doubling in uric acid was associated with an effect estimate of 0.57 (95% CI 0.49-0.65) and 0.77 (0.73-0.81) for hospitalization with depression and antidepressant medication use. The association was consistent across strata of all covariates. Results were attenuated in Cox regression analyses with less statistical power.High plasma levels of uric acid were associated with low risk of depression hospitalization

To fail is human: remediating remediation in medical education Remediating failing medical learners has traditionally been a craft activity responding to individual learner and remediator circumstances. Although there have been moves towards more systematic approaches to remediation (at least at the institutional level), these changes have tended to focus on due process and defensibility rather than on educational principles. As remediation practice evolves, there is a growing need for common (...) theoretical and systems-based perspectives to guide this work.This paper steps back from the practicalities of remediation practice to take a critical systems perspective on remediation in contemporary medical education. In doing so, the authors acknowledge the complex interactions between institutional, professional, and societal forces that are both facilitators of and barriers to effective remediation practices.The authors propose a model that situates remediation within the contexts of society
