Drugs and mental health, the mistreatment of clinical interns and evidence-based practice: Most-read articles in February


The most-read article in February was Al-Shafaee and colleagues’ study of the mistreatment of clinical interns in Oman. Doyle et al‘s  systematic review of the links between patient experience and clinical safety – originally published in January – remains popular,  and Ubbink et al’s newly published scoping review on evidence-based practice was the third most-read.

Ward et al‘s paper on new drug launches in the UK received plenty of media attention, including articles by the BBC.
