Pap Smears and Bimanual Exams: Do Teens Really Need Them? - Frankly Speaking EP 175

Guest: Alan M. Ehrlich, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommend against routine Pap smears and bimanual exams in adolescents. This recommendation includes those planning on starting oral contraceptives or with possible sexually transmitted diseases. A recent study found nearly half of all such exams in this age group lack indications. While the evidence indicates a new direction, clinicians have been slow to change their practice. Join us as we discuss the reasons for these guidelines and review appropriate indications for these exams.

Corticosteroid Injection for Plantar Fasciitis: All Pain, No Gain - Frankly Speaking EP 170

Guest: Alan Ehrlich MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Plantar fasciitis is a common and often unsuccessfully treated chronic, painful condition. Multiple interventions have been suggested with varying degrees of effectiveness. Corticosteroid injections are sometimes used, but the evidence for efficacy has been limited with significant bias present in many of the trials. A Cochrane review in 2017 found a small degree of short-term benefit. Since then, a number of additional trials have been performed, and a newer systematic review finds no benefit.
