- Hypertension -- part three. Newson // GP: General Practitioner;4/14/2003, p52
Coronary risk tables are based on the Framingham data, which came from a 10-year follow-up of 5,000 patients. A study in primary care found that although the Sheffield table correctly identified slightly more people who were at high risk compared with the Joint British Societies chart, it also...
- Patient-Physician Connectedness and Quality of Primary Care. Atlas, Steven J.; Grant, Richard W.; Ferris, Timothy G.; Yuchiao Chang; Barry, Michael J. // Annals of Internal Medicine;3/3/2009, Vol. 150 Issue 5, p325
Background: Valid measurement of physician performance requires accurate identification of patients for whom a physician is responsible. Among all patients seen by a physician, some will be more strongly connected to their physician than others, but the effect of connectedness on measures of...
