Default A sparkling, glittery threat to evidence based practice

A sparkling, glittery threat to evidence based practice

Great post by Neil O'Connell. Excerpt:
Quote:
Richard Feynmann’s classic quote comes to mind: “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.” This has become much more apparent to me since I became involved in conducting Cochrane reviews. The scale and commonality of erroneous, incomplete or selective reporting came as a big surprise... Two new papers in the musculoskeletal field ... went looking for the incidence of “misleading abstract conclusions”. Specifically they looked for a selection of naughties: not reporting the results of the primary outcome, basing conclusions on secondary outcomes or the results of a sub-group analysis, presenting conclusions that are at odds with the data, claiming equivalence of efficacy in a trial not designed to test for it, and finally not considering the risk-benefit trade-off. Like a game of clinical trial Bullshit Bingo. ... they do find a trend towards improving quality but still most of the risk of bias criteria were met by less than half of included trials published in the last decade.

I see Leon Chaitow wrote a comment, I find that interesting that he reads the BIM blog.

I think he wants the world to realize he is "editor of an Elsevier published, medLine indexed, journal (Jnl. Bodywork & Movement Therapies)."
