MDOC CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER SELECTED AS PEER REVIEWER
Dr. Jeffrey Stieve, the Chief Medical Officer for the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) has been asked to be a peer reviewer, providing feedback on UpToDate, a physician's resource used by the MDOC and Prison Health Services on a daily basis. The resource is available at each on-site health care unit throughout the Department. UpToDate is a nationally recognized and widely used resource that helps physicians see the latest and greatest research on almost any topic. It also pro- vides current research about treatment successes and failures, etc., so doctors can make the best informed decisions about when and how to treat various conditions/situations.
Dr. Stieve was chosen to be a peer reviewer in the area of correctional health based on several en- counters he had with UpToDate where he was seeking more information or asking for clarification on existing information. Being chosen as a peer reviewer is a significant achievement for Dr. Stieve and demonstrates the level of quality and competence he brings to the Department’s Bureau of Health Care Services.
