Excellent 2-pager on prioritising understanding of results over critical appraisal in EBM training. (Note: I want both, but understanding results should be first). @LoaiAlbarqouni @Tammy_Hoffmann have experimented with that. https://t.co/Fd88xaqgOu pic.twitter.com/0LYnmUmD4K

We argue (with Gordon Guyatt) that evidence based medicine educators should spend much more time & emphasis on understanding of magnitude of effect & applicability of results; less time & emphasis to risk of bias in primary studies.

Just published, exhorting the #EBM community to wake up to the fact that our teaching should focus on helping clinicians understand research results, not on conducting critical appraisal. @KariTikkinen https://t.co/07Hm8aSnAI pic.twitter.com/m2RWrBvCVT

Really interesting article in BMJ EBM. Are we prioritising the wrong things in critical appraisal training? "Understanding of research results, evidence summaries and their applicability—not critical appraisal—are core skills of medical curriculum" https://t.co/gXk1zLVUX8

Junior doctors *usually* rely on guidelines/evidence summaries, NOT primary research studies.
"….notion that most clinicians emerging from professional training will regularly evaluate the risk of bias in methods and results of primary studies is deluded."
Seems fair enough… https://t.co/prv2ZuZ6Yp
