Caring for loved ones can be demanding; although difficult, it is important for General Practitioners to be proactive in identifying carers and finding ways to support them.
Primary care nurses report that healthcare stories in the mass media affect the perceptions not only of their patients but also themselves and feel they need more support to improve their media literacy.
A new measure of frequent attendance, based on the interval between consecutive contacts, gives a more precise, “disease logic” based picture of this important patient population compared to traditional measurements.
BMC Family Practice 2014, 15:59
BMC Family Practice is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of primary health care, including clinical management of patients, professional training, shared decision making, and the organisation and evaluation of health care in the community.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
