EBM makes a difference

This post courtesy of Anne Taylor-Vaisey:

Here's a heads-up for some great weekend reading, if you are interested in evidence-based medicine. (And who isn't?)

The upcoming BMJ issue for October 30 is a theme issue entitled:

Evidence Based Medicine: Does it make a difference?

BMJ October 30 2004; 329(7473)

Note: BMJ is still providing its contents at no charge, but in 2005 articles will be available by subscription only.

The links to the current issue will be active tonight (October 28); here are some highlights:
