The publication Dr. Clark is most proud of is a recent publication on CMF facial trauma. It gave him the opportunity to condense the wide breadth of facial trauma topics into cannot miss topics. This paper also gave him the opportunity to collaborate with experts in the field. Ultimately their goal with this paper is to help other facial trauma surgeons better care for their patients.

Canick J, Petrucci B, Patterson RH, Saunders J, … Ibekwe T, Waterworth C. An analysis of the inclusion of ear and hearing care in national health policies, strategies, and plans. Health Policy and Planning. 2023. doi:10.1093/heapol/czad026

Dr. Patterson recently participated in an analysis of global ear and hearing care (EHC) policy with the Global OHNS Initiative nonprofit. This study investigated the representation of EHC in national health policies across different countries. The researchers found that EHC was generally under-prioritized in these policies, especially in low- and middle-income countries. They compared the mentions of EHC keywords with keywords related to major health issues like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The results showed that EHC received significantly fewer mentions than these other health concerns. The study highlights the need for stronger inclusion of EHC in national health policies and the creation of national ear and hearing care strategies to address the growing burden of hearing loss and improve access to care worldwide. By prioritizing EHC, we can work towards preventing the negative impacts of hearing loss and improving the well-being of individuals affected by these conditions.
