We’re back! The Nov-Dec 2019 issue of Singapore Health is now out.
Our cover story is based on a study led by KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital showing how well-meaning parents can injure their children when they lose control while “disciplining” them. This discipline is often meted out in anger, with parents sometimes using household objects such as brooms, hangers and kitchenware to hit the child. A doctor, medical social worker and psychologist discuss the issue.
In other stories, read about a new treatment strategy for nose cancer that is getting good results; a medical condition that a princess flaunted at her wedding; a cooling device that might have frozen Han Solo; and two 2019 national award winners - a Clinician Mentor and a President’s Nurse.
Also, as SGH starts the countdown to its biennial celebrations in 2021, find out how medical practice has advanced over the years in a series of snapshots beginning in this issue.
