We’ve selected our image of the week. A 46 year-old female patient presented with bright reddish-orange urine. She had no recent illness and was otherwise asymptomatic. Upon further discussion, the patient acknowledged recently eating beets. Which diagnosis should be investigated? Find out on Figure 1. by figure1 http://instagram.com/p/v3zwZMmVEL/

First, in medicine and society, we have failed to recognize that people have priorities that they need us to serve besides just living longer. Second, the best way to learn those priorities is to ask about them. Hence the wide expert agreement that payment systems should enable health professionals to take sufficient time to have such discussions and tune care accordingly.

I also discovered that the discussions most successful clinicians had with patients involved just a few important questions that often unlocked transformative possibilities: (1) What is their understanding of their health or condition? (2) What are their goals if their health worsens? (3) What are their fears? and (4) What are the trade-offs they are willing to make and not willing to make? These discussions must be repeated over time, because people’s answers change. But people can and should insist that others know and respect their priorities.

This patient arrived in the ER unsure of why his fingernails had become so dark. His hemoglobin was found to be 22 g/dL and he explained that his skin became itchy after a shower. These findings are typical of polycythemia vera, one of the chronic myeloproliferative diseases, which is characterized by an elevated hemoglobin, pruritus upon bathing, erythromelalgia (red, painful extremities), and thrombosis. Do you know what other indicators may be present for polycythemia vera? by figure1 http://instagram.com/p/vy3574mVIL/
