Several research groups from multiple institutions provide structure and methods to improve research for family medicine. Colon cancer research includes which common screening test for colon cancer most often results in completed colonoscopy. Authors explore how some cardiovascular preventive medications are overused while others are underused. Three research papers specifically advance improvements for practice management, 3 articles address diabetes, 3 others cover family physicians caring for specific populations (pregnant women, children, and those with sports-related issues). There are practical research articles on practice management and others on common clinical problems. This issue also includes a clinical review on acute sensorineural hearing loss and human papilloma virus immunization guidelines that can cause confusion.
