General Medicine Year in Review 2011
The most important medical topics of 2011, as chosen by the editors of Journal Watch General Medicine
Each year, the editors of Journal Watch General Medicine choose the year’s most important thematic areas in clinical research. We try to strike a balance between relevance to primary care, recognition of landmark studies, and media publicity and public awareness. Some of our stories emerge from one important study, and others come from several studies on a single topic. The order of these stories is not intended to reflect their relative importance.
