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

(1 votes, average: 4.00 out of 5)

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.
