While checking in journals for the week, I stumbled on a thought-provoking opinion piece in the Nov. 27 JAMA issue. It’s on the need for clarity with evidence-based medicine statements: those hypotheses and declarations that we see in article abstracts, summaries, and findings. The author critiques use of the phrase There is no evidence to suggest. It’s about a 5 minute read, which I recommend, and if you have any thoughts to add, feel free to share.
Find the full article in our current journals onsite, or online through the library website.
