Saul J. Weiner, M.D., and Alan Schwartz, PH.D., join Mark Alyn to talk about their new book,Listening for What Matters: Avoiding Contextual Errors in Health Care. The book is based on 10 years of groundbreaking research conducted by the authors and explains how and why doctors commonly fail when diagnosing and treating patients. With federal grants, Weiner and Schwartz conducted studies, which first sent actors, called Unannounced Standardized Patients (“USPs”) and then real patients, to hundreds of doctor’s visits with hidden audio-recording devices so that the research team could listen and analyze the results of the visits. This is their story.
The focus behind the experiments was to find out how often doctors picked up on “contextual red flags” alluded to by the patients. These are clues that something is going on in a patient’s life that needs to be addressed for a care plan to be effective. So, if a patient drops clues that he is unable to afford an expensive brand name medication after losing health insurance coverage, then Weiner and Schwartz would observe whether the doctor picks up on the clues and prescribes a lower-cost generic medicine. The studies document that physicians are frequently overlooking crucial clues about patients’ individual life circumstances and making medical errors as a result. These mistakes by doctors are costly and pervasive and can be prevented. Weiner and Schwartz explain how doctors and other health-care professionals can learn to listen better, ask the right questions, and get better results.
In their interview with Mark, Saul and Alan will discuss:
The book is available from Oxford University Press and can be bought online via Amazon, Oxford, or another retailer and you can find out more about Saul and Alan on their website:http://www.contextualizingcare.org

Kat Napolitano, of KatNap Fitness, joins Mark Alyn on Late Night Health Radio to talk about role models in fitness. Think these things don't make a difference? Think again!
Role models still affect us all at any age and this is particularly true in the fitness world where we are still only seeing skinny, chiseled and muscled trainers to inspire us to workout. But statistics show that this isn't working. 60% of American adults still don't get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25% of adults are not active at all.
There is a sea change in many industries of more realistic role models for body image starting to appear. Oprah is probably the most well-known headliner to bring a new image to health and weight loss as the new face of Weight Watchers and it is making a major impact. For the FIRST TIME EVER, Sports Illustrated put a curvy model on one of the covers (you go Ashley Graham!) Barbie just launched a new line of dolls to reflect the changes in what we see as beauty.
