JAMA® Patient Information
Explore the latest patient information from The JAMA Network® (the Journal of the American Medical Association and its 11 specialty journals) including easy-to-understand information about prevention and management of common illnesses. The JAMA® journals provide a tool for more effective communication between patients and physicians and include articles based on their potential educational value for the public.
With health care topics so prevalent in the media, the best way for patients to determine how a particular medical news development does or does not apply to their individual health situation is to discuss these issues with their physician. JAMA® patient information is written with the patient in mind—to make the information understandable and helpful. It also includes basic information to provide essential context and indicates sources for additional information on the same topic.
