The FDA Wants to Change Mammogram Regulations for the First Time in Two Decades
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to require mammogram providers to tell women if they have a common risk factor for breast cancer. The proposal, released Wednesday, would be the FDA’s first update to mammography regulations in more than 20 years, according to a statement from the agency. Among other proposed changes, the policy would require mammography providers to inform patients who undergo the breast cancer screening test if they have dense breast tissue, which may both warp the results of a mammogram by obscuring signs of cancer, and increase the risk of developing breast cancer in the first place. ...

New study reveals the importance of health literacy and patient advocacy for wound healing
  When patients actively collaborate with physicians during their wound care process, the results are favorable for everyone involved. With open doctor-patient communication, physicians consider patient concerns and preferences and are mindful of carefully explaining treatment procedures. Doing so increases patient understanding and treatment adherence, and ultimately, drives positive outcomes. While there is enough evidence to suggest that patient-centered care is essential to wound healing, many patients lack the knowledge and support to be fully involved. A recent study conducted by Healogics Wound S...
