Georgia Richards spent 4 weeks at Cochrane UK learning more about evidence-based healthcare and the work of Cochrane. Here’s what she made of her time there…
Let’s find out why physicians sometimes contradict each other from a statistical perspective. And see how students can learn from that.
When dealing with a difficult question, we tend to seek the answer for a simpler one, that seems to be relevant. However, a seductive trap awaits us here. Come with me, I’ll show you the world of surrogate endpoints.
We hear the word “evidence-based medicine” too often but why is evidence-based medicine important? And what’s the difference between eminence-based medicine? This post addresses those questions and give some examples of both evidence and eminence-based medicine practice.
Cochrane is carrying out some research into the teaching and learning of evidence-based practice in a range of settings, and in particular whether there are barriers to the effective learning about EBP among medical students, junior clinicians, or others. Your answers to this set of questions will help us understand possible future development for use Cochrane in teaching and learning.

In the second in our series of articles reviewing the health evidence tools produced by McMaster University, Harkanwal Randhawa examines Health Evidence™, a database of systematic reviews around the subject of public health.
We are launching a new, year long campaign to promote students globally to ask What’s the Evidence?
Thankfully, this “less is more” idea seems to be a movement gaining serious momentum in the medical world to “wind back the harms of too much medicine”.
Dannky Minkow describes a new initiative aimed at getting health care professionals to take another look at their use of non evidence-based and wasteful practices.
Advancing techniques and mechanization in every field has led to newer computer or written questionnaires in the field of medicine.
One often is confused whether to rely on these questionnaires or carry out oral history taking which has been prevalent for ages?
here’s an insight to it through various researches…
