The image seems to be a transverse lie as well...

This newspaper article probably tells us more about psychology and alternative approaches to healthcare than it does about what to do or what the risk level is - Midgley 16:10, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

What should I do in reviewing a classmate's work?

  • read their page!

editor offers guidance to reviewer, including:

  • editor's goals
  • clarity on what section(s) to prioritize, ignore

Reviewer's feedback to the editor contains:

  • general comments re: language, simplicity, clarity, etc.
  • I think the language is appropriate for lay people reading the article. Simple and clear.
  • Some grammatical errors (second paragraph of lead).
  • areas to prioritize, identify holes & hypertrophied parts
  • Since it is the part first read, I think the lead should be prioritized.
  • Make sure no areas where “citation needed”
  • Perhaps aim to add and follow Wiki’s suggesting outline for medical conditions (where appropriate):
-Signs and symptoms or Characteristics
-Causes: Includes Risk factors, triggers, Genetics or genome, Virology (e.g., structure morphology and replication).
-Mechanism: For information about pathophysiology.
-Diagnosis: Includes characteristic biopsy findings and differential diagnosis.
-Prevention or Screening (if the section only discusses secondary prevention it should follow the treatment section)
-Treatment or Management: This might include any type of currently used treatment, such as diet, exercise, medication, palliative care, physical therapy, psychotherapy, self care, surgery, watchful waiting, and many other possibilities. Consider discussing treatments in a plausible order in which they might be tried, or discussing the most common treatments first. Avoid experimental/speculative treatments and preventive measures (e.g., prophylactic vaccines or infection-avoidance techniques). As per the policy of WP:NOTHOW, Wikipedia articles should not be written in a "how-to" style, but this does not prevent adding official guidelines of treatments or managements if these can be presented in an objective manner and with medically reliable sources.
-Outcomes: For the prognosis. May also be labeled "Possible outcomes" or "Outlook".
-Epidemiology: factors such as incidence, prevalence, age distribution, and sex ratio.
-History: Early discoveries, historical figures, and outdated treatments (not patient history)
-Society and culture: This might include stigma, economics, religious aspects, awareness, legal issues, notable cases.
  • quality of cited works
  • Your article has a number of secondary sources. I would suggesting aiming to make sure the article has 5-20 quality sources by the end of the block.
