Abstract

Medication therapy emerged as a theme for this issue—from many perspectives and for different conditions. We have several articles on opioids, including for pain/noncancer pain; use by older drivers and their reported driving; and the advantages of family medicine treatment sites. A related article explores chronic widespread pain and concurrent low back pain. In addition, this issue covers the gamut of prescribing inappropriate medications for older individuals and prescribing antibiotics when a CT scan of the abdomen would not have found an indication for such treatment. Other included topics include social complexity and impact on primary care physician income.
