Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

Each weekday, our team of doctors and medical journalists plans the daily news schedule of all stories planned for the day. It contains the latest information from the most important medical journals, announcements from national and international health agencies, and analysis on the latest health trends. Our experienced health reporters speak daily with prominent medical leaders, providing in-depth analysis, updates, and profiles that give our health news and content a perspective found nowhere else. Every original article is reviewed by our team of General Medical Council registered doctors.
Our Editorial team gets its stories from an array of sources: peer-reviewed medical journals, medical conferences, government announcements and policies, and enterprise material derived from interviews with medical experts. The majority of stories originate from studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals. We also believe that valuable content is available from our sponsors, advertisers, and partners, but that such content must be clearly labeled.
