Talking to Patients About Guns. A physician says “yes” and “no”

Should doctors routinely talk to patients about gun use?

That was a question my colleague Paul Hsieh MD addressed in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.

Here’s another slant:

“Yes, physicians should ask about patient gun issues for their health and safety but No, no one should use EHR electronic health records or any data sharing mechanisms for that ultimately private discussion!” – Craig M. Wax DO
