Importance  Clinical evidence supports the beneficial effects of lowering blood pressure (BP) levels in community-living, robust, hypertensive individuals older than 80 years. However, observational studies in frail elderly patients have shown no or even an inverse relationship between BP and morbidity and mortality.

Objective  To assess ...

Importance  The expected duration of menopausal vasomotor symptoms (VMS) is important to women making decisions about possible treatments.

Objectives  To determine total duration of frequent VMS (≥6 days in the previous 2 weeks) (hereafter total VMS duration) during the menopausal transition, to quantify how long frequent ...

Importance  The unprecedented increase in unintentional overdose events that has occurred in tandem with escalating sales of prescription opioids over the past 2 decades has raised concerns about whether the therapeutic use of opioids has contributed to increases in overdose injury. Few controlled studies have examined the ...

Importance  The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of primary care is being implemented in a wide variety of socioeconomic contexts, yet there has been little research on whether its effects differ by context. Clinical preventive service use, including cancer screening, is an important outcome to assess the ...

Vasomotor symptoms (VMS) affect up to 80% of menopausal women and are the most common reason these women seek treatment. Approximately 60% of midlife women seek medical care or advice at least once because of VMS,1 which adversely affect quality of life in domains that include work, social and leisure ...
Editor's Note 
Mitchell H. Katz, MD
All patients would benefit from having a patient-centered medical home. However, Markovitz and colleagues1 show that low-income patients may benefit more than others. Using data from adult primary care physician practices in Michigan, they show that the increases in cancer screening associated with patient-centered medical homes are greater for low-income ...
Editor's Note 
Mitchell H. Katz, MD
JAMA Internal Medicine has run a series of articles on the dangers of prescription opioids for the treatment of chronic pain.1,2 The best solution is to avoid prescribing opioids for chronic pain because there is no high-quality evidence that they are effective for this indication, and the risk of adverse ...

Based on current guidelines, adjuvant radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy is not recommended for localized papillary thyroid tumors measuring 1 cm or less, medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), and anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC).1- 3 Nevertheless, previous studies have reported the use of RAI in the treatment of these cancers.

Importance  Every year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspects several hundred clinical sites performing biomedical research on human participants and occasionally finds evidence of substantial departures from good clinical practice and research misconduct. However, the FDA has no systematic method of communicating these findings to ...

Compared with other routinely recommended adolescent vaccines (eg, diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis [Tdap] vaccine and quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate [MCV4] vaccine), human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine uptake has been lower, with only 57% of adolescent females and 35% of adolescent males initiating the 3-dose HPV vaccine series.1 Often, the ...

Editor's Note 
Kenneth E. Covinsky, MD, MPH
When patients are in an intensive care unit (ICU), considerable attention is placed on physiological variables of illness. This novel article by Ferrante and colleagues1 establishes that we also need to be attentive to patient-centered measures of function as a fundamental measure of illness that must be assessed in all ...
