Today is World Trauma Day, 2019!


Trauma Day.jpg


According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), trauma is a major cause of death and disability across the world.

WHO research has shown that at least 50 percent of road deaths occurring in developing countries could have been prevented with effective interference after trauma has occurred, that is:

  • Immediate pre-hospital care
  • Adequate knowledge of handling emergency situations (involves training of personnel)
  • Adequate supply of pre-hospital care equipment and facilities (enough ambulances and other medical supplies).

Commemoration of World Trauma Day emphasizes the importance of saving and protecting a life during the most critical moments and preparing and applying critical measures to deal with and avoid trauma fatalities.

BENTHAM SCIENCE MEDIA PARTNERSHIP FOR Middle East Pediatric Orthopedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting


Middle East Pediatric Orthopedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting.


The Middle East Pediatric Orthopedic Society (MEPOS) has been established by Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons practicing in the Middle East region. All members to the society take a special interest in Children’s Orthopedics. The society’s aim is to improve the detection, prevention and care of children suffering from musculoskeletal disease in the Middle East.

The 5th edition of the Middle East Pediatric Orthopaedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting is to be held in Sofitel Downtown Dubai, UAE from 11 – 13 October 2018.

The scientific programme for MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018 has been developed to provide you with an innovative and comprehensive overview on the latest research developments in Pediatric Orthopedics and what are the advanced global best practices in the detection, management and treatment of various pediatric orthopedic conditions.

EDITOR’S CHOICE – Maryland Assessment of Recovery in Serious Mental Illness – Adolescent Psychiatry

Journal: Adolescent Psychiatry

Author(s):Morgan N. McCredie, Colleen A. Quinn*, Mariah Covington


Objective: The Maryland Assessment of Recovery in Serious Mental Illness (MARS) is a 25-item, 5-point Likert recovery scale that has been validated for use with adult clients. The present study examined the psychometrics of the MARS in an adolescent residential sample.

Methods: Adolescents (n = 121, 60% male, 52% Caucasian, 42% African American) were assessed periodically during residential treatment using MARS, K-SADS-PL diagnostic interviews, Youth Self Report (YSR), and Personal Well-Being Index (PWI-SC).

Results: T tests (MARS x gender) and one-way ANOVA (MARS x age, race, primary diagnosis) showed no differences in MARS scores for normative data. Reliability was strong using test retest (r = .914) and internal consistency (Chronbach’s a = .952). Repeated measures ANOVAs found significant main effects and interactions; as number of diagnoses declined from admission (M = 3.13) to discharge (M = 1.70), MARS scores significantly increased from admission (M = 93.97) to discharge (M = 105.90); as symptom severity (YSR total Problems) decreased from admission (M = 66.55) to discharge (M = 60.55), MARS scores increased showing sensitivity to change validity. Construct validity revealed a moderate correlation with PWI-SC (r =.42).

Conclusion: The present study provides preliminary evidence that the MARS is a psychometrically sound instrument for use in assessing recovery in adolescents. Several limitations of the study are discussed in the interest of further research on use of the MARS with adolescent clients.

Anxiety Disorders in Adolescents

Psychiatric disorders are becoming increasingly common throughout the world, from which anxiety disorders particularly stand out. All ages of people can be found affected by such issues and often are recommended to visit psychiatrists for help. Teenagers show signs of anxiety more than adults as they find themselves under stress, burdens and pressures. The causes may be innate or develop over time and hamper the lives of such adolescents.


Researchers are trying to study in depth how the psychiatric issues show up in the adolescents in terms of gender, ethnicity and other segmentations. A study was conducted in 2007 and 2008 in the schools of USA to find out patterns and classifications of anxiety-struck adolescents. The results of the study revealed that girls suffered with various types of anxiety much more than the boys. They were found to have generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, panic disorder, and school avoidance. There were boys who were affected as well but the numbers were less than the girls overall.

Further study revealed that there wasn’t a very significant difference among various ethnic groups as each group had certain cases of anxiety patients. But when it came to the ones who needed professional help, Hispanic people were more likely to suffer compared to Caucasian and African American people. The study has potential to gain great attention and can be very helpful for the researchers to build their future research works on.

It is published in Adolescent Psychiatry journal as the article, Gender and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Anxiety Disorders During Adolescence.

Psychotherapy Needs Modernizing!

Treating young people with behavioral disorders can be pretty difficult, especially if they are suffering with complex issues. Therapists have been keeping busy in counseling through discussions and verbal engagements with their patients but it has mostly proved to be a hard job. Counseling happens to be time-consuming, full of obstacles and with snail-paced outcomes. Primarily, it is due to the reason that verbal conversations require attention, understanding, learning and retention from the receivers, who already have a behavioral problem to deal with.


Psychologists and clinicians need to adapt and add novel techniques to achieve better results in treating their patients. They should utilize ideas similar to the ones widely used in classrooms, seminars and other professional information media. This means they need to include visual aids with verbal communications like boards, easels, handouts, and most appropriately, computer systems to improve their usual psychotherapies. People differ in their types of learning – some may be better listeners, some readers, some may retain better from visuals and some may prefer performing things to learn. This general concept applies to adolescents with behavioral problems as well, and therefore, using computer-facilitated techniques with counseling is expected to make gigantic change in psychotherapies.

Adolescent Psychiatry journal has a research paper encompassing research on these ideas: Computer-facilitated Therapeutic Dialogue with Adolescents with Behavior Disorders
