Articles of Note: February 2019 Edition

It’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly waltz through the newly published peer-reviewed literature. I have to tell you, it’s a pretty glorious selection this month. Links lead to PubMed abstracts except where indicated.

Thinking about having a journal club for your team (or just looking for the next article to assign)? Here are some suggestions based on this month’s review:

For adult/adolescent SANE programs: Ectopic pregnancy following oral levonorgestrel emergency contraception use. or Vulnerabilities Relevant for Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children/Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking: A Systematic Review of Risk Factors.

For CAC/peds programs: Barriers and facilitators affecting self-disclosure among male survivors of child sexual abuse: The service providers’ perspective. or Estimating the probability of abusive head trauma after abuse evaluation.

For expanded programs: Acquired Brain Injury in the Context of Family Violence: A Systematic Scoping Review of Incidence, Prevalence, and Contributing Factors. or Childhood maltreatment and intimate partner violence victimization: A meta-analysis.


Have you checked out the FHO store lately? You can find our newest research brief, Aging Bruises Based On Color, plus our original guide, Injury Following Consensual Sex. Both available now for electronic download.

    Is the journal club still active? Is it still possible to join?

      I did it as an experiment several years ago and only had a small amount of interest. I’d love to revive it if I had enough people interested…

      Trust me, if there is enough genuine interest I will fully attempt this again. Let’s see how people feel after today’s post 🙂
