More on EBM

CRAP:  Clinicians for the Restoration of Autonomous Practice Writing Group:

Clinicians for the Restoration of Autonomous Practice (CRAP) has written this report and nailed it to the door of the BMJ. We have done this anonymously and under cover of darkness to protect ourselves from retaliation from grand inquisitors in the new religion of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM).

Take a look at the article.  Very well done.

  1. The satire is well done…but then go and read the comments section underneath it over the past year. The last comment: the satire was written by two of the most famous exponents of Evidence-Based Medicine (!)

    Alas, it is hard these days imagining the kind of good-humored back-and-forth that characterizes this satire occurring around this or other medical issues in this country. We take ourselves far too seriously.
