    Overview: Clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommend against routine Pap smears and bimanual exams in adolescents. This recommendation includes those planning on starting oral contraceptives or with possible sexually transmitted diseases. A recent study found nearly half of all such exams in this age group lack indications. While the evidence indicates a new direction, clinicians have been slow to change their practice. Join us as we discuss the reasons for these guidelines and review appropriate indications for these exams.

    The Prescribing Cascade: What Is It and How Do We Prevent It? - Frankly Speaking EP 173

    The Prescribing Cascade: What Is It and How Do We Prevent It? - Frankly Speaking EP 173

    Claim CME/CE credit: https://www.pri-med.com/online-education/podcast/frankly-speaking-cme-173
    Overview: In primary care we are tasked with treating multiple conditions, therefore many of our patients are on numerous medications. Some of these medications are prescribed to deal with side effects of other medications. Often clinicians may not be aware that they are treating preventable drug side effects and wind up prescribing even more medications. This causes a cascade effect that results in significant polypharmacy. Join us while we discuss this common phenomenon and strategies to minimize or avoid it entirely.

    Overview: As men age, over-active bladder (OAB) symptoms (urgency, frequency, nocturia) are commonly seen. Typically, these symptoms are secondary to the development of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Alpha-blocking and/or antimuscarinic agents are commonly prescribed to treat such symptoms. In this podcast we review the COBALT study which examines the benefits of behavioral treatments (pelvic floor muscle training and fluid restriction before bedtime) alone or combined with drug therapy to treat OAB symptoms.

Love podcast, can you post references?

Hi Frank,

I love your podcast. I’m a family medicine physician in NJ and
it’s always nice to hear about new treatment options for patients. Can you post references within your podcast, specifically the studies that you have your guests mentioned? That would be of great help.

Overall good, but...

Thanks for the podcast, I like the format and length. I would appreciate more citations of the evidence and more conversations with physicians experienced in the topics presented. And the podcast overall is SO quiet! Please rework the sound/mic settings because it’s difficult to hear at anything but maximum volume. Thanks so much!
