Global salt intake, smoking cessation through Facebook and the cost of childbirth: Most read articles in January

The most-read article in January was Snow et al.’s patient led study ‘What happens when patients know more than their doctors?’ on the impact of patient education on the lives of people with diabetes. Hsia et al.’s newly-published cross-sectional study on the variation in charges and prices paid for vaginal and caesarean births has also been popular. Other newly-published papers in the top ten most read include Li et al.‘s analysis on the effect of maternal age and place of birth on intrapartum outcomes, and Cobb et al.’s protocol for an RCT on smoking cessation intervention through Facebook.
