James McCormack (@medmyths, BS Medicine Podcast) does it again!
Clinical Practice Guidelines must change! This is the end of guidelines as we know them.
We need patient centred care, including discussion of the values of the patient, the harms of intervention, and alternative options. Right now we have a bunch of arbitrary target numbers for treatment that medicalize normal people. These guidelines are mired in conflict of interest as the majority of guideline-authors having egregious conflicts of interest with industry.
It's time to fix this! I'm honoured to be a part of this effort and call for action. It was awesome fuel for my imposter syndrome being asked to be in one of James' videos alongside some of my 'preventing overdiagnosis' heroes, not to mention ZDoggMD (whose videos I have followed for ages, probably since Hard Doc Life). The video features such like-minded pals including but not limited to: Gilbert Welch, Tim Caulfield, Iona Heath, Victor Montori, Richard Lehman and yep, yours truly - "it's just common sense!"
