Most read articles in September: young people’s views on school sex education, gender equity in academic medicine and improving patient safety

cellular-1352613_1920September’s most read list sees several new entries as well as some popular non-movers. This month’s top spot still belongs to Ravnskov et al and their systematic review on the associations between low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol and mortality in the elderly. Pound et al come in at number three with a qualitative synthesis of young people’s views and experiences of school sex and relationship education (SRE). They concluded that SRE should be delivered by experts who maintain clear boundaries with students and taught using a ‘sex-positive’ approach – one that aims for young people to enjoy their sexuality in a way that is safe, consensual and healthy.

Other new entries this month include Caffrey et al, who performed a multimethod, qualitative study investigating how a gender equity programme, Athena SWAN, could be enabled and whether  interactions between the programme and the context it is implemented into might produce unintended consequences.

At number ten is a multimethod study by Power et al, looking at whether a large-scale two-phase quality improvement programme achieved its aim to improve patient safety using a harm-free care approach.
