Preventive services by medical and dental providers and treatment outcomes.
The researchers compared the association between the provider of preventive services (PCP, dentist, or both) with Medicaid-enrolled children before their third birthday and subsequent dental caries-related treatment (CRT) and CRT payment. They concluded that, due to children's increased opportunity to receive multiple visits in medical offices during well-child visits, preventive oral health services provided by PCPs may lead to a greater reduction in CRT than dentist visits alone.

Reducing unnecessary urinary catheter use and other strategies to prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infection: an integrative review.
The authors updated a prior systematic review and a meta-analysis regarding interventions prompting urinary catheter (UC) removal by reminders or stop orders. They found that UC reminders and stop orders appear to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infection rates and should be used to improve patient safety.
