Do Jerusalem's Arabs and Jews receive a different quality of medical care?
Date:1/25/2008

Researchers Amit Tirosh, Bmed, Ronit Calderon-Margalit, MD, MPH, Marianna Mazar, MD and Zvi Stern, MD compared the quality of care delivered to Jewish and Arab diabetes sufferers who were admitted to four major hospital emergency rooms in Jerusalem, to evaluate whether differences existed between the two groups and, if they did, their causes, given the common basis of health insurance coverage. The researchers found significant differences. As compared to the Jewish patients, Arab patients received:

  • less diet counseling
  • fewer recommendations and less support for physical activity
  • less guidance in performing self foot examinations
  • fewer medications prescribed

Quality of care of Arab patients with diabetes is lower than that received by Jewish patients in the city, write the authors in the article. Resources should be invested in early detection of diabetes among the Arab population and in intensive treatment following diagnosis, together with lifestyle modifications to improve the quality of life among Arab patients with diabetes and to decrease the economic burden of the disease.
