Expatriate health insurance customers might be interested to learn that older doctors may offer different treatments to their younger counterparts.
According to research published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, younger doctors are more likely to prescribe drugs to people with cardiovascular (CV) problems.
Older doctors, meanwhile, tend to offer lifestyle advice. Those over 55 were most likely to advise their patients to stop smoking, while doctors aged between 46 and 55 were more inclined to encourage people to follow a health diet and take more exercise.
Professor Massimo Volpe from the Faculty of Medicine at Sapienza University in Rome, commented: "Although younger doctors prescribed more drugs, this did not result in significantly better control of their patients' major CV risk factors, suggesting that other factors have an important role to play in the clinical management of CV risk, including lifestyle changes."
