Assessment of knowledge, attitudes and practices towards Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) among medical students of Punjab

Malhotra Kashish , Goyal Kashish , Malhotra Kashish , Goyal Naresh

Background: An endocrine disruptor is an exogenous chemical or mixture of chemicals that interfere with any aspect of hormone action. It can interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse cardiovascular, neurological, developmental, reproductive, and metabolic effects in humans. This study aims to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practices (KAP) of the medical students regarding the exposure, usage, and long-term harmful effects of Endocrine Disrupt...

Utility of webinars with case-based learning approach in teaching endocrinology to undergraduate medical students during the COVID-19 pandemic

Goyal Kashish , Malhotra Kashish , Kansal Rohin , Marwah Mahima , Goyal Ravikant , Goyal Harry , Galhotra Anmol

Background: Conventional methods of one-way teaching may not involve the integration of clinical skills and may become more inefficient and passive [1]. During the COVID-19 pandemic, limited patient interaction and shift to online lectures greatly reduced the clinical exposure and opportunity of developing interpersonal skills for junior medical students. In this study, we hosted online webinars with case-based teaching for medical students so that they can amalgamate clinical...

Comparison of virtual 3D-modelling assisted teaching vs traditional lecture-based teaching for first-year medical students to understand the anatomy of various endocrine organs during the COVID-19 pandemic

Goyal Kashish , Malhotra Kashish , Kansal Rohin , Trehan Shubam , Marwah Mahima , Goyal Harry , Malhotra Sakshi

Background: 3D-modelling is a computer-generated simulation technique that allows the users to interact with a three-dimensional environment and provide an immersive experience to understand minuscule details which becomes especially important when understanding the anatomical relations of endocrinology organs. During the COVID-19 pandemic, medical lectures were shifted to online mode which diminished the opportunity of cadaveric-based teaching that is routinely done for first...

A bibliometric and qualitative analysis of the top 2500 most cited PCOS articles: Analysing global disparities in PCOS research and collaborations

Elhariry Maiar , Kempegowda Punith , Malhotra Kashish

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex condition with multi-systemic implications that can greatly impact patients’ lives. To understand and deliver the varied needs of people with PCOS, a substantial onus lies on PCOS researchers to objectively study patient data and formulate evidence-based recommendations. Equitable research is crucial to ensure fair representation of people of various ethnicities and stratify population-specific analysis to have g...

Global impact of PCOS awareness month: challenges and opportunities

Malhotra Kashish , Synn Cuen Pan Carina , Davitadze Meri , Manolopoulos Konstantinos , O'Reilly Michael , Arlt Wiebke , Kempegowda Punith

Background: September is celebrated as PCOS awareness month worldwide and is aimed at improving the lives of those with PCOS, promoting research, and strengthening advocacy efforts. While significant financial and human resources are invested in promotions during this month, to the best of our knowledge, there is no evidence to show the impact of this initiative. In our study, we evaluated the global digital impact of PCOS Awareness Month, tracking commonly used hashtags as su...

Background: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder, with an estimated prevalence of 10-15% worldwide. PCOS can have adverse consequences on the emotional wellbeing of the patient. However, evidence exploring the relationship between PCOS and psychosexual wellbeing, specifically sexual function, and dysmorphic appearance concerns, is largely inconclusive.Aim: A systematic review and meta-analysis were undertaken to assess differ...
