Prolonged sitting, non-fatal self-harm, and institutional mental healthcare: Most read articles in May

Prolonged sitting and fatigue, non-fatal self-harm, and trends in institutional mental healthcare in Western Europe

This month sees a mixture of some old favourites and some new entries in the Top 10 Most Read list. First up is a pilot study by Wennberg et al which uses a randomised two-condition crossover trial to compare the acute effects of uninterrupted sitting with sitting interrupted by brief bouts of light-intensity walking on self-reported fatigue, cognition, neuroendocrine biomarkers and cardiometabolic risk markers in overweight and obese adults. Kristensen et al‘s paper on the effect of statins remains popular at number two this month and at number four we have an observational study by Geulayov et al which received a press release – it examines trends in non-fatal self-harm and its management in England. In at number five this month is a study by Chow et al investigating how institutional mental healthcare has changed in Western Europe since 1990, finding that there are ongoing overall trends of a decrease in the number of psychiatric hospital beds and an increase in the number of places in other institutions, including prisons. Last month’s most read paper by Gunn et al remains in the top ten, and at number ten we have a new entry by Laver et al with a systematic review of systematic reviews, assessing the effects of interventions to delay functional decline in people with dementia.
