Conclusion: Commercially insured adults have been visiting PCPs less often, and nearly one half had no PCP visits in a given year by 2016. Our results suggest that this decline may be explained by decreased real or perceived visit needs, financial deterrents, and use of alternative sources of care. Primary Funding Source: None.

Caring for the Transgender Patient: Grand Rounds Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Urinary Incontinence in Women.
Abstract Urinary incontinence (UI) is common among women and contributes to decreased quality of life. Several effective treatment options are available for the most common types of UI (stress, urge, and mixed), including lifestyle and behavioral therapy, drug therapy, and minimally invasive procedures. Most women improve with treatment, and UI is not an inevitable part of aging. To maximize the opportunity for successful treatment, it is critical to align the treatment approach with patient goals and expectations for care, including an assessment of patient-driven priorities regarding potential adverse effects, c...
