Vidyya Medical News Service For 24-October-2000:

The FDA today approved a new brain stem implant designed to restore some hearing in people who experience total hearing loss when the removal of tumors damages their cranial hearing nerves.

Three articles dealing with issues related to access to high-quality, cost-effective health care were funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and are featured in the October 25 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The articles offer insights into three critical health care access issues: the link between insurance coverage and quality health care; the cost-effectiveness of comprehensive neonatal follow-up care for high-risk infants; and the role of state scholarship and loan forgiveness programs on the primary care workforce. Get a summary of all three articles in today's issue.

And finally, get a brochure from the CDC for your patients. The information details seven steps that individuals can take to protect themselves from infectious diseases. The brochure can be used as an office poster or in many other ways as a patient education aid.

As always, we hope you enjoy the issue.
