Complimentary therapies, well-being and consultants as victims of bullying: Most read articles in July.

 Tired Doc

July’s top 10 most read papers sees two studies taking into account doctors’ points of view. The first, by Bourne et al., takes a closer look at look at which aspects of the complaints process they find the most stressful. The second, by Shabazz et al., uses a survey of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to explore how significant numbers of consultants in the UK are victims of bullying.

We also have a study by Linton et al., that systematically reviews self-report measures for assessing well-being, and a randomised controlled trial by Levett et al., that concludes that the use of complementary therapies during birth can significantly reduce usage of epidurals and cesarean sections.
