Shared decision-making and understanding research

The doctor’s role in communicating benefits and harms of treatments and how best to use research evidence to judge these, and so enable shared decision-making, is discussed by Fiona Godlee in ‘Start Stopping Smartly, BMJ’s Editor’s Choice, 9 June 2016.

The responses are interesting too, one with a reminder of that superb book, ‘Less Medicine, More Health’, by Dr H Gilbert Welch.
