What Is the Cost of Interrupting a Radiologist?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:05:54 EST

(image) A first of its kind study shows typical interruptions experienced by on-call radiologists do not reduce diagnostic accuracy but do change what they look at and increase the amount of time spent on a case. The implication of the finding is that as radiologists contend with an increasing number of workplace interruptions, they must either process fewer cases or work longer hours -- both of which have adverse effects in terms of patient outcomes, said Trafton Drew, the study's lead author. They also may spend more time looking at dictation screens than reviewing medical images.(image)

Politics Is Not the Primary Reason People Are Leaving Churches, Study Suggests

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 10:05:09 EST

Extreme political views might be driving some people away from churches, but the actual number of departing parishioners is not that large and those who do leave the pews are mostly marginally involved with the institution, according to a new study co-authored by a University at Buffalo political scientist. "All we're really seeing here is a little churn," says Jacob Neiheisel, an assistant professor in UB's Department of Political. "We don't see people ensconced within the institutional framework leaving. These are people at the periphery so we don't see religious sorting where people on the left are disproportionally becoming anti-religious while people on the right are doubling-down on religion." The findings provide new evidence that the limited turnover is not contributing significantly to political polarization.(image)
