Most hospitalists not supportive of inpatient mammography
the ONA take:
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine, researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, have found that most hospitalists would not order an inpatient mammography for breast cancer screening.
For the study, researchers identified 106 hospitalists to survey about their views on the appropriateness of inpatient breast cancer screening. Of the 106, 92% responded to the survey.
Results showed that 62% of respondents believe that hospitalists should not be involved with breast cancer screening.
Researchers found that only about 33% of hospitalists would order a screening mammogram for hospitalized patients who were overdue for breast cancer screening.
The study also showed that the most common concern of hospitalists related to ordering a mammogram was lack of follow-up on test results.
The authors conclude that future studies are warranted to determine the feasibility and potential barriers associated with screening mammography in the inpatient setting.
