Launch of Innovative Journals on Quality and Performance Improvement in Medicine by Dowden Health Media

MONTVALE, N.J., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Dowden Health Media, publisher of highly regarded medical journals, has just launched The Journal of Family Practice Special Edition: Current Clinical Practice and its companion, Current Clinical Practice. These twin publications-one for family practice physicians and one for doctors of internal medicine-present print and online articles authored by international thought leaders on such critical issues as pay-for- performance and quality improvement initiatives in medicine.

Under the leadership of Editor-in-chief Bernard M. Rosof, MD, Chair of the American Medical Association's Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement, Current Clinical Practice is poised to become a pivotal voice in the dialogue surrounding contemporary medicine. In addition to the latest trends in practice management, articles will address a range of topics including the patient-centered medical home, innovations in diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, and the cultivation of medical leadership.

"I am pleased to welcome you to Current Clinical Practice and introduce you to new information you can use immediately to facilitate the many overlapping tasks in a busy practice day," said Dr Rosof in his inaugural editorial. "This journal will assist you in optimizing patient care, in striving for best outcomes, and in contemplating new primary-care practice models."

The content of these journals also features continuing medical education (CME) modules developed through grants from industry and submitted by medical education companies. "We are delighted that the launch issue was a financial success, reinforcing our decision to provide a venue through which clinicians can obtain timely information along with free CME credits on a variety of subject matter," said Publisher Laura Dowden.
