Abstract

This issue of the Journal evidences the wide variety of research methods that can effectively answer questions important to the practice of family medicine. For example, this issue includes 4 highly informative reports from qualitative or mix-methods research, plus surveys, a meta-analysis, a case report, and more. Mixed-methods were used to look at practice changes and to compare advance directive tools. Surveys were used to identify practical, but addressable, issues for mailed colon cancer screening tests, and the prevalence of atopic dermatitis, and emollient use in young children. Secondary analyses of national surveys were used to identify low-value patient requests, and how diabetes and prediabetes are being treated. Retrospective chart analysis of patients with frequent hospital admissions identified important characteristics of the patients and their problems. Meta-analysis methodology was used to stratify risks for pneumonia. And, a randomized trial was used to compare ways to train patients to use medical record patient portals.
