LATEST - Issue 153 (Mar/Apr 18)
While there are many ways to ensure our safety, I believe the most effective one is to equip ourselves with knowledge. After all, knowledge is power!
In this issue, learn about polycystic ovary syndrome and its various implications (page 2), as well as the types of intestinal parasites that can possibly thrive in our bodies (page 18). In Health Notes, our article on colorectal cancer sheds light on the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Singapore and why it is important to go for regular screening s (page 5).
People adopt precautions, and so do organisations. We get a glimpse of how safety is enshrined at CGH as part of providing care. We also meet some of the people behind these patient-safety initiatives (page 12).
In addition, take a look at CGH's holistic initiative that helps patients integrate into the community, and reduce their length of their hospital stays and chances of readmission (page 16). Our addiction counsellors also share tips on how to recognize alcohol addiction and the steps needed to ensure recovery (page 8).
Indeed, when we are equipped with the right information, we are more likely to take steps towards prevention. I hope that you'll not only enjoy this issue's content, but also use it to protect yourself.
Keep safe and carry on!
