Our Letter on Smartphones is Published. The BASH study also.


Dr John Torous has written in response to our article on smartphone mental health applications in the December 2015 issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry Bulletin. The letter and our response has been published in the latest issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry Bulletin. The correspondence focuses on security and efficacy aspects of applications.

The latest issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry Bulletin also features a number of other articles including a study looking at the experiences of medical students – the BASH study. The study looked at how often medical students experienced negative comments about medical specialties and whether this changed their career choices. General practice and Psychiatry received the most negative comments according to the survey results and this is an important paper for medical students and doctors.
