83. Substance Abuse in Canada: The Effects of Cannabis Use during Adolescence (Report)

the insights gained from personal knowledge can be compelling, all good scientists know that solid research evidence is not established with the casual study of a single person. Current debates about cannabis use are rife with mere opinion and misinformation. And, to complicate the matter further, the evidence related to the possible health risks of cannabis use appears to be contradictory. How do we weigh the evidence? Is it a drug with a variety of adverse or hazardous effects or does it pose low risk (...) to people’s health? What is one to believe? There are many websites and authorities that claim to offer accurate information about cannabis. Indeed, a simple Google search of the word cannabis yields over 60 million results. How can the average person make sense of this confusing picture? Several researchers have engaged young people to better understand their attitudes and beliefs about cannabis — why they use it or don’t use it and, more specifically, what they want to know about it (Bottorff, Johnson

84. safeTALK for youth suicide prevention: new review finds no evidence of safety or efficacy

existing systematic reviews and meta-analyses, searched Google, the websites of various relevant governments and organisations, and also the ‘grey’ (unpublished) literature. The aim of the systematic review was to: investigate the quality of available evidence of the effectiveness of SafeTALK. Results Surprisingly, if also of concern, there appears to have been only one peer-reviewed study of SafeTALK conducted (Mellanby et al., 2010); the other five pieces of research yielded by the search were one (...) dissertation, and four evaluation reports. Of this sparse literature, the authors say “together, these [studies] constitute the available world literature on SafeTALK.” Only one of these studies (Eynan, 2011; the doctoral dissertation) performed any type of statistical analysis, finding that those who had received safeTALK training reported significantly higher knowledge and positive attitudes towards suicidal individuals. None of the studies assessed whether safeTALK training affected self-reported

I'm not sure what the impetus for this study was, but it appears to follow from the societal conditioning that women's bodies are inherently more private than men's.

Even for symptomatic patients, we treat women differently. For the woman with UTI symptoms, do you do a pelvic?
