This podcast is a continuation of last week’s podcast. It’s the second of this series on mastering the medical literature. If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode start here.
The guy answering my questions if the awesome Dr. Goldenberg, ND. If you want to learn about some of the latest natural medicine research on May 27 he’s doing a webinar through the WANP.
The last episode we talked through the abstract of this article. It was interactive. You read the article, while Dr. Goldenberg answers my (and hopefully your) questions. This episode picks up where the last one left off and we talk through the full text of the article. Listen (and read along) to learn more about:
- The best way to read a piece of research
- What a multicentered trial is and why it’s important
- The danger of unmasking
- What subgroups are and why they are important
- How to spot bias
- If niacin really is a helpful treatment for cardiovascular disease
- And much more….
It really is a good use of your time and fun in a nerdy kind of way. And face it, if you’re a doctor you have at least a little bit of nerd in you. My goal was to create an interactive piece that we could all benefit from and I think we did it. Pour yourself a drink, download the article, press play, and stay tuned for our next episode with Dr. Christine Fleetwood, ND on how to be successful in an unlicensed state.
