It’s not your imagination – you’re getting less time with your doctor.
Primary care physicians are in short supply in the United States, which means increased pressures and heavier workloads for those in practice, says Dr. Paul Griner, (www.drpaulgriner.com), author of “The Power of Patient Stories: Learning Moments in Medicine.” “Many physicians say their favorite part of being a doctor is the relationships they form with patients, but those are harder to cultivate now because physicians are so squeezed for time,” Griner says.
More than 80 percent of physicians said patient relationships were the “most satisfying” part of their job, according to a survey of more than 13,000 doctors last year by The Physicians Foundation.
But nearly 40 percent said they were seeing 11 to 20 patients a day, and nearly 27 percent had a daily load of 21 to 30. On top of that, they spent an average 22 percent of their day on paperwork that had nothing to do with patient care.
“A good doctor-patient relationship is essential to achieving the best possible care, but the reality is, most doctors have less and less time to spend with each patient,” Griner says. “So it’s important for patients to take some responsibility for that relationship, too.”
By preparing for your visit, you can ensure you make the best use of your time together, he says. Dr. Griner speaks with Joyce and Mike about how patients can prepare and optimize the time with their physician.
Historically and in many parts of the world, women's participation in the profession of medicine (as physicians, for instance) was significantly restricted. Most countries of the world now guarantee equal access by women to medical education, although not all ensure equal employment opportunities. Many scholars have stressed the importance of incorporating women’s perspectives into policies and programs from their inception rather than added on after the policies have already been formulated.
Judy Erola, former Canadian federal cabinet minister, shared with me her belief that” The policies that women advocate are not just beneficial for women but for society as a whole. If women don’t speak out, all of society suffers”. Significant women’s representation in leadership positions in maternal health care systems can hasten the achievement of MDG 5.
Women’s International Association’s (MWIA) whose motto is “Matris Animo Curant” (They heal with the spirit of a mother) has been mobilizing this maternal spirit across the globe since 1919. In 2008, more than 650 women doctors from over 50 countries attended the 2008 year with large delegations representing Nigeria (over 100), the Philippines, and South Korea. Today, the organization has grown exponentially with several chapters around the globe. Women physicians being the minority is a thing of the past, as women constitute at least 50% of many medical schools. Thanks to the women who have set the pace for gender parity on women’s participation in the profession of medicine as physicians:

Like a growing number of physicians, Dr. Alieta Eck and her husband John Eck, MD do not see Medicaid patients in their practice because the red-tape hassles combined with the low reimbursement would – before too long – put them out of business. The two Doctors Eck have found a better, voluntary and non-government funded, way to fulfill the promise they made in the Oath of Hippocrates to treat the poor without consideration of payment; They see them for free in a stand

Do you need healing today? A certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years. And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. And Jesus said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. It's time to be whole of our plagues.
