Minn Med 2016 Sep-Oct;99(6):46-8

Communication, once thought of as a soft skill for physicians, is now recognized as an essential skill. This article asserts that listening is the foundation of good communication and that all physicians can become better listeners if they have the desire to improve and are intentional about how they approach listening. The authors share five strategies to help physicians improve their skills: listening with curiosity, reflective listening, empathic listening, listening for discrepancies and listening in silence.

Problems with the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. An Alternative.

Minn Med 2016 Sep-Oct;99(6):40-3

The updated 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, published in January 2016, have stirred much controversy since the advisory report first appeared. Several important changes have been made, with some recommendations having greater scientific evidence for their support than others. The focus of this review is to discuss specific recommendations from the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans that lack sound scientific evidence; these include: 1) Allowing approximately half of all grains to be refined; 2) The continued recommendations for fat-free or low-fat dairy and limitation of saturated fat intake to <10% of calories; 3) Sodium intake < 2,300 mg/day; and 4) Consumption of up to 27 g/day of “oils” (high in polyunsaturated fat or monounsaturated fat).

RECIPE Rx.

Authors:

Minn Med 2016 Sep-Oct;99(6):20-3

As we started planning this issue on food and nutrition, we kept hearing about the importance of cooking. If physicians are going to be credible when talking to patients about healthy eating, they ought to know something about making a healthy meal, right? They might even want to share a recipe. We know many physicians and medical students like to cook, and we thought it would be fun to find out what they are making. Read More

Raising the Minimum Legal Sale Age for Tobacco to 21: The Estimated Effect for Minnesota.

Minn Med 2017 Jan;100(1):35-37

A campaign to raise the minimum legal sale age for tobacco products from 18 to 21 years known as Tobacco 21 is having a nationwide impact, with at least 200 localities in 14 states having already implemented a Tobacco 21 policy. A 2015 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) estimated the effects of such policy on cigarette use at the national level; however, little is known about the expected effects for individual states. The purpose of this study was to consider the effect on smoking initiation in Minnesota if the minimum sale age were 21 in 2015. Read More
