Feature: Call for Families in Internal Medicine

2015 will mark 100 years of the ACP as the professional home for internists.

In the Clinic

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) can vary from a mild outpatient illness to a more severe disease requiring admission to a hospital or even an intensive care unit (ICU). Along with influenza, CAP is the eighth leading cause of death in persons older than age 65 in the United States and is the leading cause of death from infectious diseases.

In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care. Many internal medicine clerkship directors recommend this series of articles for students on the internal medicine ambulatory rotation.

Highlights from ACP Internist® & ACP Hospitalist®

Disclosing medical errors the right way
After a medical error, patients want an explicit statement that an error occurred, what happened, and the implications for their health. They want an outright apology, not a statement of regret. Work from global organizations is refining the right way to disclose errors.

Get rid of GERD without unneeded costs, tests
Gastroesophageal reflux disease can be diagnosed in the office, without the need for expensive tests such as endoscopy. Learn how to make the right diagnosis while avoiding confounding symptoms that might steer a patient toward the wrong specialist.

Coagulation confusion: Advice on perioperative medication management
How to handle anticoagulants, steroid, cardiac, diabetic, and pulmonary drugs in surgical patients.

Oncologic horrors in the hospital
Problems can occur in metabolic, infectious, drug realms.
