Featured Toolkit: Problem Recognition in Illness Self-Management (PRISM)

Diabetes self-management

It is estimated that over 190,000 children under age 20 have diagnosed diabetes, and the number of cases has been increasing over time.  

Due to the multi-faceted approach that is typically needed to manage diabetes, it is difficult for children and their families to adhere to their diabetes self-management regimens.  

The Problem Recognition in Illness Self-Management (PRISM) tool was developed to help clinicians can identify the barriers that youth with type 1 diabetes and their families are facing, and then tailor self-management resources to these needs.

The unchartered frontier: Preventive cardiology between the ages of 15 and 35

Heart Care

Risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), such as atherosclerosis and lifestyle behaviors such as poor diet, begin in childhood and can progress through the adult years. A recent review co-authored by Dr. Heather Johnson emphasizes that in order to reduce the burden of CVD, it is important to not only treat risk factors in adolescents and young adults, but also to prevent those risk factors from developing in the first place. Methods to assess CVD risk and deliver cardiovascular preventive care to young adults are also discussed.

Family physician clinical compensation: Moving away from the RVU

Family Doctor

In a recent article in Family Medicine, members of UW PATH describe the development and implementation of a population health-based physician compensation plan that shifted the focus away from relative value unit (RVU) productivity and towards panel management. Survey results from pre- and post-implementation showed that community physician satisfaction with the compensation structure rose from 33% to 74%, and satisfaction with the amount of compensation rose from 26% to 87%.
