Podcast 245: We revisit a 2018 episode on NPs’, PAs’, and MDs’ performance in the primary care of diabetes

In November 2018 we interviewed two authors of an Annals of Internal Medicine study comparing the quality of diabetes care afforded by three provider types: nurse-practitioners, PAs, and MDs. They reported that there were no clinically significant differences in the intermediate outcomes — glycated hemoglobin, systolic pressure, or low-density lipoprotein cholesterol — among the groups.

We’re posting that interview again for two reasons: first, this week’s planned interviewee remained unreachable, no matter my pleadings; second, listeners reacted strongly (and positively)  the first time around, and I hope newer listeners will find it as interesting.
