The relatively low number of patients who desire assistance is relevant to the growing number of initiatives in US health care settings designed to collect data on and address patients’ social risks. We highlight multiple studies that have fou...

Background: In 2015, Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) became the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved treatment for binge-eating disorder (BED), a condition first recognized by the DSM–V in 2013. Because pharmaceutical companies use continuing medical education (CME) to help sell drugs, we explored possible bias in CME modules on BED. Methods: We utilized a qualitative thematic analysis research approach to identify and classify patterns in CME activities focusing on BED. Results: We iden...
