For chronic medical conditions, researchers may considerably exaggerate the results of over one-third of early clinical trials, according to a study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. The study authors examined 70 articles published in medical journals between 2007 and 2015, which included the results of 930 clinical trials. "This phenomenon of exaggerated early results was present in a whopping 37 percent of the studies we reviewed," said Fares Alahdab, MD, lead study author.
For many women in healthcare, sexual harassment is a workplace reality that can come from peers, superiors and patients, NBC News reports. "It just comes par for the course, unfortunately," said Meghann Justice, RN, a travel nurse who has worked in emergency rooms across the country for the last six yearsMs. Justice and her colleagues aim to shed light on what women who work in the medical profession encounter on a regular basis as the #MeToo movement spreads.
In the wake of mass shootings across the country, the U.S. health sector must work to prevent shootings as they would for any other contagious problem, argues Gary Slutkin, MD, founder and CEO of Cure Violence and professor of epidemiology and global health at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In a recent Medscape poll, 65 percent of healthcare providers said they view gun violence as a public threat.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
