FROM an informal survey of more than 20 peer-reviewed journals, we selected
topics where evidence from recent research is changing our approach to common
problems we see in family medicine—osteoporosis and asthma—and
where new information has identified an emerging problem, hepatitis C. Data
on the treatment of depression with St John's wort and the value of continuity
of care are also discussed. Research articles were identified from MEDLINE
searches and selected based on their validity and relevance to clinical practice.
