Abortion: What the Primary Care Provider Should Know

Guest: Regan N. Theiler, M.D., Ph.D. Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. @chutkaMD Abortion is a common procedure. three out of ten pregnancies and six out of ten unintended pregnancies end with an induced abortion. Overall, about one in four women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the age of 45 years. The U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2022 ruling to overturn Roe vs. Wade has shifted the legal battle over abortion to the states, resulting in some states prohibiting abortion and others moving to safeguard it. The topic for this podcast is abortion and what the primary care provider should know. Our guest is Regan N. Theiler, M.D., Ph.D., from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mayo Clinic.

Vaccine Recommendations: 2022 Important Updates

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD] Guest: Robert M. Jacobson, M.D. [@RobertJMD] Immunizations are one of the greatest success stories in modern medicine and it’s estimated that they’ve saved more lives and prevented more disabilities than any other medical intervention. They’re probably responsible, more than any other medical advance, in contributing to our increased longevity as a population. They’re also extremely cost-effective and their benefits far outweigh the very small risks they carry. This podcast will review new information regarding immunizations and how we as clinicians can increase our patients’ immunization rates. Our guest is Robert M. Jacobson, M.D., a pediatrician, and expert in immunizations from the Department of Pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic.

What To Know About Home Genetic Testing

Guest: Matthew J. Ferber, Ph.D. Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD] Over the past decade or so, we’ve learned a great deal about the human genome, and this has allowed us to determine which medical conditions our patients are at an increased risk of developing and which medications may be best suited for their medical problems. In addition to the clinical genetic tests we use in our practice, direct to consumer home genetic testing has become extremely popular. This podcast will review home genetic testing and what information patients can expect with these tests, whether the information they receive is accurate and how home genetic testing differs from the genetic tests we order. Our guest is Matthew J. Ferber, Ph.D., a clinical molecular geneticist at the Mayo Clinic.

Reducing Medical Supply Chain Vulnerability: Now You See It, Now You Don’t

Guest: Pritish K. Tosh, M.D. (@DrPritishTosh) Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@chutkaMD) The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the vulnerability of the medical product supply chain and its impact on providing optimal healthcare. The spread of the disease was accompanied by not only shortages of personal protective equipment but also medications and many other products we depend on every day in our clinical practice. We’ve learned that we cannot provide adequate or timely health care when there are shortages of important products. As a result, the health of our patients and healthcare providers has been endangered. It’s also resulted in a rationing of care and an increased risk of error as we’re forced to use sub-standard or replacement products. It’s caused us to look for new solutions to reduce our medical supply chain vulnerabilities. Our guest for this podcast is Pritish K. Tosh, M.D., an infectious disease specialist at the Mayo Clinic.

Guest: John B. Kisiel, M.D. (@DrJohnKisiel) Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@chutkaMD) Colon polyps are relatively common in our population and, in most cases, are relatively easily found and removed, thereby reducing one's risk of developing colorectal cancer. What are the various types of colon polyps and which polyps have a greater tendency to become malignant? How long does it take a polyp to develop into colon cancer and how often does colonoscopy miss polyps?  These are just some of the topics we’ll discuss in today’s podcast. Our guest is John B.
