We once again review four areas of interest to office-based pediatricians: office laboratory procedures, office economics, parenting and patient education, and urinary tract infections. Sean Elliott reviews the current status of the Clinical Laboratories Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and their continuing impact on physician office laboratories. Eve Shapiro reviews office economics, this year focusing on managed care, the physician workforce, practice management, and health care financing for the uninsured. Anna Binkiewicz provides an update on parenting and parent education, with recent reports on nutrition and childhood immunizations. Richard Wahl again reviews recent research on urinary tract infection, discussing voiding physiology, dysfunctional voiding patterns, acute urinary retention, urine collection techniques, diagnosis in young infants, and antibiotic prophylaxis.
