EU gov’t and public health sites lousy with adtech, study finds

A study of tracking cookies running on government and public sector health websites in the European Union has found commercial adtech to be operating pervasively even in what should be core not-for-profit corners of the Internet. The researchers used searches including queries related to HIV, mental health, pregnancy, alcoholism and cancer to examine how frequently European Internet users are tracked when accessing national health service webpages to look for publicly funded information about se...

Clear and concise communication is key while delivering bad news

“Guys, are you alright in there?” I ask casually while taking the first bite of my dinner on a 24-hour PICU shift. No answer. “What is going on? Why is she beeping so much? Is her tube blocked?” My voice gets louder. Complete human silence. Except for the deafening hypoxia monitor going to 30s.

Why are we hemorrhaging emergency nurses?

I started my medical career late. Really late. By that time, I’d lived a few lives. I’d earned a boatload of initials. I’d changed husbands, languages, and continents.

5 Mental Shifts to Stop Caring What People Think of You

The difference between learning medicine and doing medicine

Your romantic partner is probably less intelligent than you think, suggests new study

It's now well known that many of us over-estimate our own brainpower. In one study, more than 90 per cent of US college professors famously claimed to be better than average at teaching, for instance – which would be highly unlikely. Our egos blind us to our own flaws.But do we have an even more inflated view of our nearest and dearest? It seems we do – that's the conclusion of a new paper published in Intelligence journal, which has shown that we consistently view our romantic partners as being...

What do the Challenger disaster and medicine have in common?
