Articles of Note Child Abuse DV/IPV Elder Abuse/Neglect Sexual Assault

Articles of Note: December Edition

With it being a slow time of year for educational offerings, I’m thrilled the research journals hold some amazing treasures. This month feels particularly useful, especially if you’re a pediatrics person. As always, this is not a comprehensive overview of what’s newly out, but it is a good selection of late November and December articles you might want to check out. Even if you don’t fancy yourself a journal person, there’s some really clinically applicable material here on everything from STI testing in kids, to emergency contraception and implantation, to evaluating digital photography.
